So far, I really like this rack. I have it on a Ford Taurus wagon. One thing that seems different from the picture, is that the pin is actually just a bolt that requires a wrench to screw it on. The picture seems to show something else. If you don't want to deal with keeping a wrench in your glove compartment, then you may be able to use a regular pin (although I guess you'd lose the quiet-ride technology, or whatever they call that bolt--it's just a bolt). The pin on my hitch is too fat for the threaded hole, but I imagine you could fine one slightly thinner. The lowering mechanism works great, and gives a lot of clearance. The rack is stable and feels very well built. Looking around at other racks since I bought this, I'm glad I chose this one. I'm really surprised that other racks require you to remove the bikes to swing the rack out of the way. It's a simple engineering design. Great rack.
