I bought 2 of the Yakima Forklifts for my 2012 Subaru Outback Limited. I mainly purchased these due to the OEM crossbar compatibility. Install is a breeze <20min. Only complaint is that they tend to whistle at speed, but it is not obnoxious at all. MPG only dropped by 1mpg. It has the updated locking black skewers, which seem to be worlds better than the old style. I would recommend these to anybody looking for a quality rack.
I bought this roof rack for a trip to Visalia Ca and this product worked flawless. With over 7 hours on the road this rack held on to my bike the whole way without getting loose. I would recommend this rack to anyone who has a stock crossbars and doesn't want to spend $400 on a complete roof rack system.
Good fit on my wifes '14 Forester. Just got back from a 500 mile round trip with our high end Domane's on top and was very pleased with how stable they were in the high winds of eastern Washington . The locking skewer seems to be solid. But some of the plastic parts such as the rear wheel strap may not last as long as the rest of the rack. Also, there is some whistling in a cross wind. But overall I am very happy with the rack and the great price and fast shipping from Jenson USA.
PROS: Stable, Easy to Install
BEST USES: Road Bikes, Mountain Bikes, Small Cars, Large Cars
Allow plenty of time between when you order this and when you absolutely need to use it. The skewer I received with the rack did not fit in the holes, so the rack was useless. Customer Service was slow but helpful, and after a couple of weeks I received a skewer that fit. Oddly, it is designed so that the locked skewer locks the rack to the car, but even a locked skewer can be unscrewed if it is not under tension (i.e, not tightened down firmly). Fortunately, I use a fork adapter, so my skewer is always under tension.
