Great product. Don't forget to buy two locksets as they are not included (one for rack, one for bike arm)

I already own the Thule 916XTR and the 501 insta-gator for my truck. Each of these racks has worked flawlessly over the past 6 years. I purchased the 594XT for my Nissan Rogue. With pre-assembling the mounting hardware on the rack, installation took about 30 minutes and was completely hassle-free. I ride a 29er single speed and this rack holds my ride very secure and is easy to place and remove. I have never had any issues with either of my previous Thule racks and I expect the same from this version. A side note - I only buy from Rack Attack, super easy, great customer service and pricing.

Pricey, but but a great product. Installation took me about 30 min on my Thule Aero Bars. I can now mount and secure my MTB to the vehicle in a matter of seconds, and I dont have a detached tire I have to deal with. Going back today to buy another for the other side of the vehicle.

I ordered 2 594 XT bike racks, both were shy 3 parts in the box. When I called, the Thule customer rep said that they could not send out replacement parts. I must first go to the bike shop that I bought it from, they would have to fill out forms, send it to Thule verifying the request as legitimate and then Thule would review the request and after their approval would send out the missing arts within 7 days. Also, the instructions are vague and not intuitive as they do not reference the part identifier (A, B, C, etc). There are 3 different size carriage bolts that are required so it is trial and error in selecting the correct one for each installation. The customer service rep threatened to hang up on me because I could not understand why (1) the rack was shipped with missing parts, (2) why it took such a bureaucratic process to get replacement parts and (3) why the instructions were so poor. I will return the product and purchase from another company (Yakima).

Very nice rack. Easily loaded, looks great, and a great design. Learn from my experience. Spend a few extra bucks for locks on your system and always park in a secure area.

i am terribly disappointed in this rack which i got as a present for our new car. the instructions are horrible, i still can't get the rear tire ratchet to work, and the carrier is a royal pain to take on and off the car. i guess if you leave your rack on all the time this is no big deal, but i do not and miss the old carrier that was a snap to install and take off..embarrassing for a company like thule to miss so badly. the rack i guess functions well, but if you take your rack off a lot i would stay away.
