I have been using the base rack now for a month and it works great. I have a hard top carry on and have had no issues. The only thing I wish was the bars where a little longer. I order the ones for my car (2008 Kia Sportage) they fit .it is just that Kia has placed the radio antenna right in the middle at the end of the roof. I was able to push the bars all the way over to the left and have just barely enough space to fasten the hard top carrier without it hitting the antenna.
I would recommend checking the top of your car or noting if you have an antenna on the roof and then measuring and trying to order some slightly longer cross bars to makes things easier.
The base rack is great and easy to install. The best part is that you do not need to drill so it leaves no marked on your rails when you take it off.
