    Description

    Just because you thought you didn't need roof racks when you bought your car, doesn't mean you can't have them now. With the Yakima Roof Rack Base System, you can add all sorts of accessories to your bald roof. Specially designed just for vehicles with no previously mounted factory side rails, crossbars or rain gutters, this Yakima base rack comes equipped with four base towers, two crossbars and mounting clips.

    Yakima car racks allow you to carry everything from bike racks and kayak carriers to luggage boxes and ski racks on your roof. Depending on your vehicle, you can even extend your racks carrying capacity with the Yakima Stretch Kit.

    Your Yakima Base Rack System is simple to install, with no drilling required, so you can be on your way in no time. If anything should happen to your Yakima Roof Rack, it's backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

    The Yakima Rack System looks good on my Scion tC. Installation of the rack system was easy and the Q towers system mounted securely on the vehicle. Noticeable wind noises when driving on highway speeds.

    Just follow directions, allow yourself twice the amount of time that you originally estimate - this allows you to constantly check dimensions as you adjust to fit- and the installation becomes fairly straight-forward. Excellent directions.

    Since I'm just 5 feet tall and have a suberu sport, a dog and a bike this is perfect for my kayak. I love summer.

    It's a great rack, but when driving it does interact with the wind a bit noisily.

    Racks were easy to assemble and install. I made small black marks in the door jam to facilitate getting them back in the proper position since I don't leave them on all the time. They seem quite secure, but I have not yet tested them on a longer trip on rough roads to see if they loosen up in use.

    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!

    This happened on I-95 at 60-65 mph. The rack was properly installed, following instructions step by step and making sure that all the measurements were correct. Also they were tested to make sure they had a strong hold on the car. The vinyl stickers they tell you to put on the metal pieces that hold onto the car are probably what caused the accident. When they get wet, they get slippery and your entire rack becomes unreliable for transporting large items.
