I never thought I would buy one of these until a stray dog showed up & stayed. What? We use my wife's 2014 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI for medium range travel. Now with two dogs it became necessary to rethink our operation. A new larger vehicle was out of the question. This was the PERFECT solution. It arrived undamaged in what could be the largest, most sturdy cardboard box I've ever seen. Installation was straight forward & our first trip was a success.
I've been driving around with my new cargo box for a week now, including highway driving, and my gas mileage has not been impacted. We have crossbars that were installed by our dealer, and there is no wiggle or noise from the box mount when I drive. The box is roomy and water tight. Fits our needs perfectly.

I have always heard that Thule were wonderful rooftop carriers. Since I have not taken a trip yet I only gave it a rating of 4. It appears to be very well built and fits on my car perfectly. It is roomy enough to take everything that I plan on taking and leave the interior for the family and our 2 dogs. So far, I would recommend it to all who considering a rooftop carrier.
