I always wondered what the owner of a Honda Ridgeline was supposed to do if they had a load of bulk mulch in the bed and needed to get to the spare tire.

The VersaNote has it outside. I was disappointed. Here in NY, the carriers all rust up after 3 or 4 years and your spare tire randomly falls out or hen you need it you can't get it out without breaking the carrier.

It won't be a deal breaker in a few years when I buy a car, but it is something that takes a few points away from it.
I run the 10w30 becuase 0w20 makes my CVT shift funny

A friend of mine blew a tire on the Taconic State Parkway in NY a while back. The spare was fine but the problem was that the big wingbolt that held it in the trunk was rusted and wouldn't come off. His dad was with him, and with lots of prying and swearing they were able to free the spare from the trunk. Problem was the wingbolt and its mount tore away from the rusted floor so they still couldn't use the spare. I think they were able to walk to a garage or body shop and had it torched off.

Tell me that wouldn't ruin your day...
