Hopefully I'll never need them, but I keep a battery booster, spare wheel kid and the compressor of board. With my little girl in the car I'd rather not be hanging around for AA when I can do it all myself.

I ordered a spare wheel and matching tools, I should get them at the end of July. For now I have the basic tire repair set which I got when I bought a car. I'm also thinking of buying a battery booster.

In my boot you will find the following:
a spacesaver spare, telescopic wheel brace, rubber wheel chocks, 2 tonne jack & handle;
a 3 tonne tow rope with D shackles each end;
a set of heavy duty jump leads;
two high viz jackets, safety glasses, boots, gloves, & hard hat;
a LED Lenser torch and a Petzl head torch;
a small general tool kit.

Have to say, I've never had to use any of the above since owning my Vitara, and I hope this continues. However, in the past I have always carried the above kit, and every item has been required on a number of occasions.

i paid £149 for my kit this includes the casing it all sits in that fits in the well.i don't think you can get a full size wheel in the compartment where the spacesaver sits.i could not get a full size wheel in my capture well.i bought it from my dealer where I bought the car from.

a spacesaver spare, jack, torque wrench, battery booster, air compressor, first aid kit, fire extinguisher. duct tape and wd40.

not sure why as in all the 10 years of driving i've only ever needed to change a tyre once and that was just for a nail in the tyre. it still held air but family members refused to get in car until i changed it.

other time was a dead battery and i had forgotten to keep the booster charged, luckily i was on a hill and could bump start it.

Hopefully i will never need to use any of these on the Vitara.
