Even those who bought the Limited with Navi did not get is spare tire... Is that true?

This is the first I hear of a new car that ships without a spare. What is Hyundai's explanation for this?

No spare man. Hyundai's explanation for this is.... it is how they got the gas millage the car "claims" to get. You will also notice no tire iron and no jack. I had sidewall damage from hitting a pot hole the other day on a highway FML!

No spare in the USA. Not even a option as of now. I had quite the saga about getting one from the dealer, some where on the board you can search and read all about it. I believe it is purely a cost saving measure. The toted MPG is the same no matter what trim line model or transmission flavor, also with or without a spare.
Hyundai isn't the alone with ditching the spare, it seems to be in vogue these days. If you have the limited do yourself a favor and get a spare in the trunk. I went thru two tires already due to pot holes and the tires are a three day wait to get a replacement. RSA will ruin your day if your a commuter or far away from home without a spare and the magic goo will due you no good with a split sidewall.

Lots fo talk on this alreeady, if you are concerned the bolt pattern for this car is very common. I bought myself a used spare off craigslist and a scissor jack for under $40.

I picked up a spare from a totaled 2008 Elantra for my 2011 Limited. Bolt pattern/size is the same. However, the offset it slightly different. 2011 spares are about 12MM bigger/deeper than 2007-2010 spares. It really is a pretty small difference though and still has enough clearance. Basically you could pick up a spare tore and/or kit from any 2007-2010 Elantra. I got the spare from a guy on eBay for $40, got the threaded bolt that holds the spare down in the trunk and the styrofoam case tool from the dealership for $15 (for both) and that took care of that. Any small scissors jack will do and you can have peace of mind. No way I was going to drive around with a can of tire goo and a $12 welfare-recipient air compressor!

I guess having a spare tire on the Canadian market Elantras explains the cost difference between the US and Canadian models.

Was the spare tire bolt and tie down with syrofoam case from a 07-10 or an 11 Elantra?

The parts I got aren't specific to any particular year that I know of. They were all the same parts for 2007-2010 Elantras.

Here is the list of parts that I have that comprise what is in the spare tire well with Elantras from those years, with the two parts that I ordered in bold:

Jack Assembly Part No. 09110-3X000
Wrench-Wheel (lug wrench) Part No. 09131-3B010
[b]Clamp-Spare tire (screws into post to hold tire in place in trunk) Part No. 62850-24100
Bar (used in conjunction with lug wrench to raise and lower jack) Part No. 09132-3B000
[b]Case-Tool (styrofoam disk with tool recesses, sits atop spare and supports trunk floor) Part No. 09149-3X000

How come the canadian Elantra has the spare and is rated the same 40mpg?

Does anyone know if a stock full size 18inch tire/rim will fit in the spare tire compartment in the 2011 sonata turbo?
