The Yakima Rack System is a great look for my Kia Soul. I was concerned about wind dynamics, but after installing and a week of driving in town, my MPG has increased!

All in all a good product. I do get some noise w/ this on my 5th gen 4Runner, at 40++ MPH. Haven't taken it on the highway yet, so hope it not too significant at 70 - 75 MPH. Where the basket comes together on the sides (connecting front to back) they come in at a bit of an angle, so there's a low point in the middle of the basket, on the side rails....it's just not exactly level from the very front to the very back. Would be nice if it was just one solid basket, not two pieces.

I was hopeful this would be the solution for me and I have not been disappointed. I installed the sweet roll (with lock cores) on a Yakima Base Rack. The process could not have been easier. Then I was able to put my kayak on the roof, position it properly, and strap it down safely without assistance. (I'm 60+ and fit, but not a big person). It's a genius design. I have a 12' touring kayak that weighs 42 lbs.
