This was our first trunk/lift gate bike rack purchase and are very happy with the choice. We purchased this rack to mount on both a sedan (Ford Fusion) and a compact SUV (Hyundai Tuscon). It fits very well on the sedan and pretty good on the SUV also. (Use the provided adapters to install on the SUV to protect the rear lift gate glass.)
Assembly/mounting it relatively simple, and if you follow the instructions included with the kit, it's a cinch (pun intended) to repeat on the same or a similar vehicle.
We've carried two bikes on the rack for a 500 mile trip and didn't notice any issues with loose ties, or the bikes fumbling around. No scratches on the bikes either.
We've already recommended this rack to a few friends and will continue to do so.
