Solid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Recently made the drive from Jackson to Vermont and back with one bike and this rack on my 03 Forester with no complications. I've been told a roof rack is sturdier, but I wanted a setup on my hatch so if I need to move I can have the ski rack up top and bikes on the back. The setup is quick and painless and it only takes a moment to mount or dismount the bike. I was a little nervous about the straps coming loose over the drive but it turned out to be a non issue. It is Thule's lowest price point model, it won't be quite as sturdy as their higher end models, but it gets the job done.

My only complaint so far is that the metal hooks slide around the edge of my hatch and scratched it up a bit, but nothing severe (and my Subi has enough scratches and dings already that I'm not upset about it). I haven't tested it out with two bikes yet, or with heavier mountain bikes, just my cruiser.

I would say that if you are planning on consistently hauling a pair of heavier bikes, and have a shiny new ride where a scratch or two would be a big deal to you (although I don't know if other models may have the same issue), invest in a higher end model. If you're just looking for a basic rack at a good price point go with the Passage. Overall I've been happy with my purchase.

Great for what it is

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This rack is good for the price. Not nearly the quality of the hitch and roof mounted racks I have borrowed previously from friends, but it's easy to use and has held up well so far. I took it on a long trip and it worked well though the bike and rack slid around a bit from their initial positions.

Hi there,
If the bike has a women's style step-through top tube, than you will need a top tube adapter that Thule also sells. It is a clamp on bar that attaches to the frame where a traditional top tube would be so you can use this or other style bike racks. I hope this helps. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.

Great Quality Rack for the Price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ok I gave it 5 star but maybe it deserves 4. So after reading the instructions installing is really simple. It takes less than 5 min to install the rack and put 2 bikes on it. We traveled over 5 hours with them and no problem. Only thing is left and right hooks feels/sounds like they can't scratch the paint when you tightening. Although nothing as of yet. Definitely a cheaper alternative to other more expensive racks.

Great rack...once you put it together...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this rack I've had it before and I sadly lost it while moving. It's super user friendly and really easy to load. BUT....(there is always one of those) assembling the rack was rather difficult. Putting the arms on the body of the rack was a pain in the A**. However it is worth it when you finally get it all put together. Putting it on the car was a breeze and like I said before super user friendly. My boyfriend (Guru Grant K) and I love using it to take the bikes on our trips. The rubber straps to lock your bike into the cradles are easy to adjust if need bee and release when you are ready to bike. I have a Toyota RAV 4 2014 and it fits the hatch really well.

Yeah that should work out fine but if you want to be sure you can run your car through the Thule fit configuration just below the Add To Cart button to check.

Hello,
The Thule Rack Configurator tells me that this model is not compatible with your CRV, it's looking like you will probably have to go with a roof rack. You should check out the Thule Rack Configurator on the left hand side of this page to check out your options. You can also chat or call in and speak with one of our Gearheads.

I bought this rack to take my beach cruiser along on my ocean city vacations in California. Works well and easy to use on my car.

Responded on

There isn't a best one for your particular car, the difference between the different Thule models is just the quality of the racks, how easy they are to setup and carry bikes. The passage 2 is the base model rack. The archway and raceway will also fit, but they're a lot nicer rack.

Hey Mick,

It's not recommended for the Fit Sport of with the optional spoiler. A roof rack or hitch rack are your only options. This is the same not only for the Thule racks, but all others that mount this way.
