While other manufacturers are moving towards that slime-filler can.

I wonder if curb weight includes the spare tire or not.

Slime filler can won't help if the tire is shredded. Good for Toyota for not following along.

Our Sienna has a donut and not a full size. The damaged tire also needs to be stored in the vehicle, it won't fit where the spare came from. At least they provide a handy strap for it.

Highlander has a fullsize spare with a matching wheel for five wheel tire rotations. Ideally this is what all cars would have.

Both of my Toyotas (2007 Corolla and 2011 Camry) came with donut spares.

I think by "full spare tire", OP meant that they come with a spare tire at all, and not a "full size" spare tire.

Sounds like they upgraded on the third gen Sienna and gave you a strap. Only a donut spare for me as well. When towing, I carry in my trunk one of my full size winter tires as a spare. Real PITA. I wish the storage spot for the donut were big enough, as I would just keep one of my off season full size tires there at all times.

Yaris came with inflated donut. I bet corolla, and all Scions come with donut also. I havent checked my Honda Fit. I like my Fiat with the spare between the engine and firewall up front.

Fit has a donut spare. Cruze has no spare, and no place to put one. Don't worry, it's the trim level I got. Other trims have donuts.

Do you want to explain exactly what you mean? Full spare tire (maybe/probably donut) or full size spare? Big difference.

Not exactly. I'm currently shopping Siennas and all of the AWD models have NO SPARE and RFTs. Once I learned that, I am looking at FWD only. Better off (and cheaper) to get a second set of wheels and Blizzaks.

^ At least they were nice enough to give you runflats, rather than just a can of fix-a-flat.
