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.

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.

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.
