I was concerned about finding a rack for my 2002 Celica with a spoiler but the SJ2 fits great. According to the manual you don't want it if your Celica is a convertible though.

The SuperJoe was fairly easy to install. Fumbled around with the straps a bit but once I had them adjusted closely I could hang the top straps on the front of the hood of my daughter's Buick LeSabre. The rest went quick. The hold down clamps are very well designed and heavy duty. Don't think there's much worry about them letting loose of a bike. Glad I bought the three bike rack as two would not have been enough room for even two bikes. I am confident with three bikes on the rack that the first one on will be bumping up against the back of the trunk and bumper. Will see.

The Yakima SuperJoe Bike Rack is the greatest bike rack for the money hands down. A little history: I purchased an Allen Deluxe Trunk Mount Bike Carrier - 3 Bikes 103DB from Walmart since we had just bought 3 bikes. We set our sights on traveling 30 minutes to a bike trail. We didn't even make it out of our complex with this bike rack when it collapsed. Turns out, the little bracket was slipping out, causing the weight of the bikes to collapse onto the trunk. BUT, the Yakima SuperJoe Bike Rack is far more superior than the Allen bike rack. It's easy to install, very sturdy and is a quality product. I would buy this again if we needed another bike rack. Thanks Autoanything.com!

Light, easy to install, fast shipping. And only one thing that turn me from buy other company: price. I understand that good brand most of the time give quality that I'm looking for, but prize is adequate too. In this case I got everything that I wanned.

Item received earlier than expected. Value is great! The only problem was with the ease of installation....the car we bought it for was not one listed to be compatible with this bike rack....but it does work with minor adjustments! Overall...very satisfied with the product!

I have to admit, I bought this more for the price than anything else. On another vehicle, I had one of those racks that goes on top of the roof, but it was expensive. I didn't want to spend that kind of money again. At first, I was afraid this would not fit my car. I have a hatch back with a unique shape to it. Once I figured out where to best set the top and bottom, it was smooth sailing. I attached the hooks, tightened the straps and all is good. I've driven long distances with the rack, both city driving and highway driving. No problems at all. The rack is sturdy, the bike stays in place with no moving around at all and I can leave it on when I'm not using it and still open my trunk. Only downfall to his one vs. the more expensive ones that go on the roof is vision. Your rear view mirror is rendered almost useless while using this. I often wonder of people behind me see my brake lights, but I've had no problems so I guess its not that bad.

question: will this bike rack work on an SUV?
Answered by Elizabeth C. — Aug 03, 2012 1:49 PM
Hello. The Yakima Super Joe is not vehicle specific. It is not designed to fit any one specific vehicle. The arms are designed to spread out to accommodate a rear hatch. It has straps with anchor hooks to grab the door or trunk edges.

I can't find anywhere in the description where it talks about locking the bike. Does it come with a lock or do I have to purchase something separately? I bring my bike to work and leave it on the car so I can ride after work.

Hello. You would need to buy a seperate lock. The SuperJoe does not come with one. Thank you for your question.flag Accept Answer
