I did like my bike rack until one of the arm broke and they do not have a replacement for it. I am not to happy about the weight of it. If anyone reading my comments can help with the replacements parts I greatly appreciate it. So you basically you have to buy a whole new rack to replace the arms

We recently purchased our 9003 Thule bike rack and are very pleased with it. We have just driven 1300 miles with it on our Ford Escape and did not have a single a problem. The rack and bikes were very stable; the bikes loaded and unloaded very easily. I very dutifully cleaned the surfaces especially after driving on some gravel roads, and not a single scratch. There are only two slight negatives: (1) Rather expensive, but this is one time we got what we paid for; and (2) at 36 pounds it is rather heavy; however, the bikes load and unload so easily that it more than evens out. Very pleased!

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find a list of the most frequently asked questions for this product. If you need more assistance you can email a rack-install technician, or call us at: 1-888-440-5556

The best way to carry bikes on a vehicle will always be using a trailer hitch rack. If your vehicle has a hitch go with that, if not we suggest getting one installed (and we do that in all of our 11 locations!) Trunk mount bike racks are an affordable option best for short trips, but they can be finicky, and any accessory mounting directly against your vehicle's paint will risk scratching.

The materials we use on the points that contact your vehicle are made of soft rubber or foam. As long as your vehicle is clean, and the rack pads and feet are clean you shouldn't have a problem.

We do not recommend opening the trunk of any vehicle while a trunk rack is installed.
