Default No Spare Tire on the 2016 Prius?

Well, I just discovered no spare tire after having a flat tire on the Pruis Run Flat Tire. Surprise, surprise, the run flat is NOT a run flat. The stupid little inflator kit is worthless. WTF, who in their right mind at Toyota would give up the donut tire for this senseless substitute? Another surprise, there's a jack, why? There's a place for the donut tire, why? Has Toyota lost their ever lovin' mind? Ya can't even buy a donut tire at Toyota. I've been a Prius owner since 2003, but after buying this 'surprise' with my 2016, I'm rethinking this car. Went to the sales mgr where I bought the last two Pruis cars, guess what I got from him, zero concern, zero. Am I steamed that Toyota has screw up a fine car, yes, yes, and yes!

I've been noticing that most new cars don't come equipped with a spare tire anymore. The tire has to be purchase separately.
