I never owned a Hyundai car before as all the new vehicles purchased in my family were made by Toyota. I was forced to search for a new car to buy when my Toyota Corolla car which I liked very much was rear-ended and totaled by a careless uninsured driver at a stop sign at a road crossing in Dallas, TX. I chose to buy a new 2016 Hyundai Accent SE after making full payment rather than a Corolla as it was more affordable for me. On returning home with my new car, I was astonished to find that it did not have a spare tire but had a tire repair kit instead. I never expected the car not to have a spare tire as all of the my Toyota Corollas came with a spare tire. When I came to purchase the car at the dealership (Bob Stallings Hyundai, Dallas, TX), I was not told that no spare tire was provided with the car. Nor was I told how to use the tire repair kit. Even the specifications for the vehicle provided at the dealership does not say that a tire repair kit is provided instead of a spare tire. Later, I came to know that I could get a spare tire by purchasing the same. I feel that having a spare tire is better than having a tire repair kit and I am now forced to order a spare tire which, I understand, will cost me $299 plus taxes. This is additional expenditure for a retired senior citizen particularly as the tire kit cannot be returned. I cannot express my disappointment with the above. Hyundai should have give the option to the customer to get the tire kit or the spare tire. Sales Associate, Courtney assisted me with the purchase of the car. He was very friendly, helpful and courteous. He did a did a excellent job.
