Although the last time I needed a spare wheel was some 28 years ago....

Indeed: don't ttempt fate. The luvvly recovery vehicle driver transporting Mrs F and I and our QQ on its 85 mile return journey to home last Christmas Day night said he'd actually worked for three different breakdown / recovery firms in the past 10 years, this due to the fact that the 'motor manufacturers probably own 'em all, because why otherwise would they refuse to equip their new cars with proper spare wheels and instead lumber the owners with utterly ****** useless kits that aren't worth the space they take up and mean no-one can change a wheel anymore in the event of a puncture without calling out a breakdown service?

As in our case. The rear offside tyre shredded almost instantly on unseen broken glass in a narrow street and that was it, Christmas over. (We were driving back home after a day with the family). We had full RAC cover and rang for help because no amount of glue (or whatever) was ever going to put that shredded rubber back together. It being by now around 6pm on Christmas Day night, the RAC said they had no patrols in our area but would get one of the local breakdown firms to come out and see what could be done.

When that happened (in remarkably short time: a superb service by the RAC and the breakdown firm) we enquired about the costs involved in all this: how much had Nissan saved by refusing to equip the QQ with a spare wheel, and how much would we have had to pay had we not bought 12 months RAC cover?

Answer was: £6 a mile recovery (go on, multiply that by 87 miles) and £15 call-out (I think: could've been higher.: we were told that because it was Christmas Day, the rates were pretty much double.)

Anyway, we've now had the QQ servied by our main dealer and, as I've posted elsewhere on this forum, found out beforehand in a strangely convoluted way that Nissan include 12 months Assist (otherwise: RAC breakdown cover) with every full service. So though we're hoping we never suffer another blow-out again like that last one, at least we know we've sufficient breakdown cover to cope.

Ditto same happened to me in the 370z, thats why I always wonder why people go for a cheap service then buy RAC / AA / Green Flag pay extra on insurance...

If you have any car serviced at a main Nissan dealership (not franchise) they will provide the same.

Porsche do the same.
