Super fast shipping and great box that will be used on my car for many years. It is very quiet while driving...wow.

Before ordering, I spoke to a customer service person who assured me that the Thule Sidekick would fit onto the roof rack of a VW Touareg. This was not quite true. I had to replace the plastic threaded nuts with washers and wing nuts because the 4 hooks that attach the box to the roof rack are too short for this vehicles rack. Once the attachemnt problem was solved, everything worked fine and we took a fully loaded cargo box on a 1200 mile trip with no problem.

We have used it once. It worked fine. It is easy to install and load. There was no noticeable wind noise or cargo noise. It was easy to remove and store. The only drawback was the fact that the off side clamps were hard to reach without using a two step ladder. This would not be an issue with the box that opens from either side. It is something I can live with.
