In 2005 I purchased the spare me bike rack for my Honda Crv. The quality was excellent. Year after year I travelled with two bikes. No problems. Last month I was rear ended and the bike rack was destroyed. I purchased the 963 pro. It was easy to install. I put two bikes on it, and drove on rough roads, pot holes , etc. and the bikes didn't budge. The holders on the 963 are deeper than the older version, which prevent the bikes from slipping and shifting. This model is higher than the older version, which make the bikes block my vision from the back window, but I will get used to it. The 2005 bike rack from thule had absolutely no rust and hasn't lost its strength up until it got smashed up. This model looks as tough as the older one.
