Bought my Vitara S in March - currently investigating options for a spare wheel (spacesaver) instead of using the Gunk Kit.

I have a wheel brace and the jack handle but not the scissor jack? My dealer says they do not come with one however why would I get the other bits and why is there a space for the jack in the "tool" box foam insert the gunk kit comes in?

He right, they don't. They did originally.

It just so happens....

I had the same problem gunk kit no jack. I have read nothing but bad reports about using gunk so i ordered  a space saver from Suzuki for 149.95 delivered to my Home address. They supply a jack and a new insert for inside the space saver wheel.

I have just bought a Vitara S as well, and no jack. I also have the wheel brace and jack handle. I might be thick but why on earth would they give you a jack handle when they don't give you a jack to use it on ??.

It's a bit stupid that no Jack is included, especially when it's been shown that inflation kits work best if the tyre is jacked up first and then the air and slime introduced.

There are no jacks in Vitaras sold in Finland (at least on model year 2017 when I bought mine) - and that's really annoying because here we change tyre sets twice a year: on Autumn to winter tyres, and on Spring back to summer tyres.

I didn't bought Suzuki's own jack, but just a universal scissor jack.
