Too expensive

For being nothing but mostly plastics, it is extremely expensive, hard to put together, and not versatile.

The functional fairing for Panoramic Sunroof(caution)

Many of todays vehicles offer a panoramic sunroof. I found out first hand when a object impacts the roof....It explodes. While the fairing is no guaranty in does redirect the airflow up and over the glass and crossbars. This fairing is very well designed and will serve a real function rather than looks. I would also recommend removing cross bars when not in use. I was a crash test dummy and survived what undoubtedly could be far worse. Great product and brand with a cautionary suggestion.

Fit on VW OEM (trapezoid-shaped) bars

These are designed to fit on Thule Rapid Aero bars, and I am sure they do that perfectly. They sort of clip on to VW OEM aero bars that are trapezoid-shaped (not oval like the Rapid Aero), but the fit was not very secure. In the end, I drilled holes in my bars, and used a bolt-wingnut fastener to mount them. The fairing eliminated the howling noise I was getting above 60 mph. Originally, the roof rack dropped my fuel economy by 1-2 mpg. The fairing restored it to the original.

Works great! Really cuts back on wind noise. However, make sure that you peel off all protective film or else the wind will eventually do it for you and then you'll really have some wind noise! Great product, easy to install.

Impressed yet again

I have many, many Thule rack items and they all serve their purpose. I recently bought a new 2013 Explorer and the noise without the fairing was tremendous. I have this fairing on a 2006 Freestyle as well and the difference is night and day. Fantastic product that lives up to hype!!

The Thule Fairing was easy to install. It is absolutely necessary to stop the wind noise from the racks. It does the job perfectly. The name could be smaller, it is not necessary to have those huge letters on the front. I recommend the purchase, I have no wind noise.

Cut the roof rack noise

I had mounted Inno racks on my 2009 Saturn Aura and got howling at speeds of over 40 MPH. It was driving me nuts until I bought this Thule Fairing. The results were immediate. Only some wind noise as one would expect, but no more whistles and howls from the racks! I can drive my car in peace and it looks most awesome. The 4 door sedan looks like a sports car now.
