I cannot beleive that I have been quoted £350 plus VAT for a spacesaver tyre and tools, how can Vauxhall justify the costs? it seems to me that the policy is not where I want to be, roll on the day when Vauxhall put back a proper spare wheel and we dont have to reply on the AA or RAC to get us home in the event of a substatial tyre failure

Mine cost me £79.17 from my dealer but he first tried to charge me £95 for it but mine was with the car in a vauxhall compound some where I would tell them to stick it at that price my dealer is Evans halshaw Edited by: Torpoint-Dave

Make up your own kit - I've posted this elsewhere but here goes again:

Have now got all the items for a Spacesaver spare wheel and saved around
£140.93 on the Vauxhall quoted price of £256.36 + VAT = £307.63


Wheel £83.49 including VAT and delivery (OEM)
Tyre £62.27 including VAT, delivery and fitting (Continental)
Wheel wrench with 4 socket sizes £7.99 including VAT and delivery.
Scissor Jack 2 ton capacity £12.95 including VAT and delivery.

Total £166.70
and maybe someone on E-Bay will buy the supplied "goo kit" that the Mokka will come supplied with

I'm really surprised, now that new cars don't come with space savers there is not a company supplying various sizes...

It was only £550 inc vat for a full size alloy together with a jack etc. what with 10% you get off with the service plan makes it less than £500. Got to be better than a space saver. Edited by: Mokkadna

I was told that a full size tyre will not fit into the space provided in the boot, is this incorrect?

The manual quite clearly states that a full size wheel will not fit in the wheelwell and shows how to strap down a full size wheel in the boot area if required.

No, he full size wheel would need to be fastened down in the boot area. However if you have a full loaded botot area and also full complement of passenger and you have a problem whereby you have to use your space saver you will have nowhere to put the punctured wheel/tyre, so you may as well have the full size and not load the boot as much (although you can use the space for the space saver to store other items).
