Sportage? Spare Tire? What Happened?

Does a New Kia Come With a Spare Tire?


Have you checked if your Kia Sportage has a spare tire included? Most Kia owners assume there is a spare stowed away in the trunk. Actually, spare tires have become more and more uncommon in new vehicles. In fact, the newer your Kia Sportage is, the more likely it is that a spare tire is not included. The 2020 Kia Sportage does not include a spare tire. As a replacement, drivers will find a Tire Mobility Kit (TMK).

Why Did Kia Replace the Spare Tire?



Replacing a spare tire with a Tire Repair Kit is a growing trend among most car manufacturers. Many are no longer providing spare tires because it significantly lowers the weight of the vehicle, increases cargo space, and improves the fuel economy. Improving the fuel economy rating saves money on gas and protects the environment.


What is Included in the Kia Tire Mobility Kit?



The Kia Tire Mobility Kit can be found in the trunk and it includes:

(To learn more visit your owner's guide.)

• Aerosol sealant

• Compressor

• Filing hose

• Hoses and cables

• Tire gauge

Tire Mobility Kits are designed to repair small damages to a tire. It is a temporary fix until you are able to get your Sportage to the nearest service center. If you have any additional questions about the Kia Tire Mobility Kit or your Kia Sportage, contact us at World Car Kia New Braunfels.

The staff there are wonderful and really work hard to make sure that they meet your needs. Jay helped us through the whole experience and was always positive and willing to answer all of our questions at any time of the day. My fiance and I had very specific needs for our vehicle and Jay worked with us through everything to make sure we found the car we both wanted and needed that fit our specifications. Unlike certain dealers in the area, never once did we feel pressured to buy immediately, Jay made sure that what we were looking at was exactly what we wanted. He made sure that we were comfortable with the whole car buying experience and were 100% satisfied with what we picked out. Thank you Jay and World Car! You definitely have our business any time we need a new car!

I just went there for an oil change. Reception was fine, service was timely and they offer coffee and WiFi free of charge. I was happy. They also washed my car for free. Can't beat that.

Rudy is the friendliest, kindest guy you could meet when shopping for a car. I could write a whole essay about how nice and thoughtful he is, but the most important thing is that he listens to you. He will listen to you when you tell him what you need and want and he will do his best for you. I met him through my dad when I bought my first car. He knew I was already in love with the Soul, but he made sure I didn't leave without being completely informed on all its features. I referred my fiance Brandon to him a year later when he was replacing his used car. Rudy helped him through the process of buying and familiarizing him with the Optima that Brandon had chosen. A month didn't even pass before we got a referral check from him in the mail. Whether you know what you want already or not - Rudy can help you out. I highly recommend speaking to him if you stop by. And if he's reading this, thank you again for everything!
