Video Transcript for Thule Passage 3 Bike Rack Review

today we're going to taking a look at the Thule Passage. This is a trunk mounted 3 bike rack, part number on it is TH911XT. The Passage uses Thule's fit dial technology. This makes it easily customizable to fit a very wide range of vehicles. As you can see the cradle arms can be stored in the downward position for convenience and then simply rotate it up and into position when we're ready to use them. Each set of cradles has the anti-sway technology designed in.

That way we're going to help to prevent or reduce the bike to bike contact, or bike to vehicle contact. Now that we've gone over some of the key features of the Passage, let's show you how it installs on the vehicle. The first step is going to be to set our fit dial. For our Nissan today, we need to be on number 9. Just refer to Thule's website or their fit guide for more details on the number specific to your vehicle. The first thing we'll do is remove the black wing nuts. They've got a bolt attached to them that goes right through the fit dial.

Then we'll rotate it up to the number 9. Once we have it in the appropriate position, we'll put that wing nut back in and snug it down. Per the fit guide, the lower set of pads should be resting directly on top of our bumper. It's a nice, thick, soft pad. This is on the lower arm and the upper arm.

It's going to help protect your vehicles finish and paint surfaces. We'll place that right onto the top edge of the bumper. Just rotate the rack up to our glass. We're then going to take our top hooks, connect them in the connection point between the roof line and the rear hatch where they come together. We'll work our way all the way around the rack. We've got 6 hooks to connect.

All the hooks have a nice rubber coated finish on them. Again, just like those pads, it's going to help protect your vehicle's surface and keep you from getting scratches and stuff. Now the straps, we're just going to snug them up for now, just to hold the rack in place until we get everything set and we can tighten them down finally. Now with all 6 of our hooks in place, we're going to go around and tighten up each strap just a little bit at a time until we have it nice and secure. With our straps secure, as you can see we've got the rack really attached to our car nicely, we'll just tidy up our excess strap. We're now ready to load up our bikes. We'll rotate the cradle arms up into position. We'll undo our cradle straps. Each cradle has 3 channels or grooves in the bottom of it. It's going to help to accommodate any of the brake lines that we may have. It also has a nice, strong, durable rubber strap that's going to help securely hold the bike in place. The cradles themselves are made of a softer, rubber, plastic material. It's going to help to protect the bike's frame. As we load up the bike we want the down tube to be on the same side as our anti-sway cradle. Once we have it resting in our 2 cradles, we'll simply come through and secure it with our straps. For the women's style frame, we did use the Thule bike adapter bar. This is part number TH982XT. Now we'll take the extra strap that comes provided with the rack. We're going to run it through the frames of our bike. This kind of helps connect the frame of the bike rack with the frames of our bike for just an extra level of security. We'll just cinch that down. With that secure, we're ready to hit the road. With our rack loaded to capacity, we're going to take it through our test course so you can see what it looks like in action. We'll first go through our slalom course which will simulate every day turning side to side. We'll go through our alternating bumps which will simulate the twisting effect we get on potholes and uneven roads. Then through our regular speed bumps so you can see how that rack moves up and down. That will complete today's review of the Thule Passage, part number TH911XT. .

2011 Ford Edge


I was convinced I was going to have to install a hitch, and purchase a hitch bike rack for my 2011 Ford Edge. I was searching on Google "One last time" Not only did I find one. But you had SEVERAL options! And, you didn't stop there. Even videos on how to. Who does that?! As a mom of two, who's husband works out of state, I really thank you. I received the rack last night. Dropped my 3 and 5 year olds off at day care, came home. Easy installation. Got a ride in! And a full day stuff done. I really thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. 179167

Subaru Outback


It's very good overall, but if you take it on a longer trip or on bumpier roads, expect to make some stops to tighten the straps. It fits mine and my wife's bikes fine, but we have yet to find a way to fit my daughter's 20" bike on here, even using the adapter bar (sold separately). We're using it on an Outback wagon because we don't have a trailer hitch. When we trade this in for a newer model we will be getting a trailer hitch and springing for one of the bike racks that will fit with it. 193861

2012 Buick Enclave


This rack was very easy to install on my Chevy traverse. Some people may be concerned about the spoiler being pulled apart, but if you follow the directions this should never happen. Make sure you adjust your dial to the correct number. 140796

Chevy Cruze


The straps don't seem to get as tight as I would think they need to be without throwing off the way it sits, but it works great on the back of our Chevy Cruze! Solid construction for sure. Definitely recommend for those without a hitch. 189863

I have a Buick Enclave 2012. The place that you have to put the upper straps on this bike rack is made of plastic on this vehicle. There is NO WAY I would attach this and expect it to hold without warping or damaging the car. 129368


Comments

Thank you for purchasing this Thule product. I can understand you apprehension about mounting this carrier to your vehicle. Thule performs extensive testing on all of the vehicles we fit and we are confident, that if the fitting instructions are followed properly, that this carrier will work well with your vehicle. Thank you!

Great value that meets my needs to haul 3 bikes on back of my SUV. I did not want to have a hitch installed solely to mount a bike carrier so this makes sense. Product was delivered and within 15 mins I had it assembled and was driving to the bike shop. All the clips that mount to the rear hatch are coated so no concern over scratching. All but the bottom 2 clips slide in with the hatch shut; the bottom two requiring opening the hatch and shutting to get them in.....a little cumbersome but still just a few seconds to take care of. The bike rack hangs far enough out so the bike closest to the car is still 6" away from bumper. But, when braking, the bike does swing forward and hit the rear bumper. Positioning the pedals to avoid having one aim square at the bumper helped. This may be a common issue on this kind of rack; it was not something I experienced on an older spare tire mounted rack where the bike was snug up to the spare so no swaying. All in all a quality rack that is sturdy when mounted and comes on and off with ease. 180483

This bike rack is a Christmas gift for our daughter, so I am unable to report on it. Based on other reviews, I am sure she will be delighted. As for the experience with etrailer, I could not be more happy. Your representative was very prompt in responding to my two messages prior to the order, and provided excellent information. After I placed the order, your package was on my doorstep within 48 hours. I will not hesitate to order from etrailer for any future needs. Thank you. 61636

I purchased this rack a year ago and have used it on several trips. The longest was 4 hours through some unpaved terrain and the rack was great! Because it's not attached like a hitch or roof rack, expect to adjust the straps every 1-2 stops. Nothing major, the side straps seem to slide a bit during travel. The guys a etrailer are absolutely exceptional. Very fast with communication and focused on great service. 251698

Excellent product, easy install. I very much enjoy being able to fold the "arms" of the rack down when not in use. The only reason I did not rate 5 stars is due to the fact that the rubber coated trunk hooks cracked and peeled within a month of install. This caused the hooks to rust and my trunk has since sustained minor damage. Otherwise, great product. 260258

Really easy to install, fits nice on a Volt if you add a little padding (neoprane or a folded towel works) under the lower arm to avoid rubbing the bumper. Use it all the time on multiple vehicles. I do use the Swagman arm on the women's bike so it sits level, without it the bike rides a little too low. 213554

Do you have a question about this Trunk Bike Rack?


  • Bike Rack Options To Carry 4 Bicycles On My 2005 Volvo XC90
  • The most amount of bikes you can carry with a trunk mounted bike rack on your 2005 Volvo XC90 is 3, as this is as much as your vehicle can handle safely. You would have to carry the other bike on the roof of your vehicle if you choose to use a trunk mounted bike rack. The item you selected, Thule Passage 3 Bike Carrier, part # TH911XT, is compatible with your vehicle and would be a good option as it features anti-sway cradles. Another 3 bike trunk mounted bike rack I would recommend is...

However we do have a few options for you to accomplish what you are wanting to do. The first would be the Swagman XP Towing Bike Rack, part # S64955. This will allow you to carry three bikes and it will clamp around the ball mount you use for your trailer. This would be the safest and strongest method to use. Remember, the weight...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2009 Subaru Forester and 2011 Subaru WRX
  • For the 2009 Subaru Forester, you have numerous trunk mount options, see link, including the Passage 3, # TH911XT, that you have referenced. For the 2011 WRX it gets a little more complicated. If that vehicle has a rear spoiler, it is considered a no-fit application. The spoiler will not allow a trunk mount bike rack to be mounted safely on the vehicle. But without a spoiler you can use the same Passage 3 bike rack for it. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The best and safest way to carry 4 bikes all on one rack is to install a Class III trailer hitch on your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country, # 87451, and use a hitch mounted bike rack. There are different types of hitch mount bike racks. The most versatile as far as the types of bikes they can carry without the use of an adapter are platform style racks or racks that hold the bikes at the wheels. Our most popular 4-bike platform rack is the Swagman XTC4, # S64665. I have included a link...

  • Will Adding a Trailer Hitch to a Nissan Versa Void the Vehicle Warranty
  • The Nissan Versa is what is considered an economy car. As such it is smaller, gets better fuel economy, and weighs less than other vehicles. But, it was not designed to tow. This could be for any number of reasons such as, the engine was not designed for the strains of towing, or the frame such as it is cannot handle the stress of towing. But if you are carrying a bike rack in the trailer hitch the vehicle is capable of supporting a correct fit rack. With that being said you will have...

  • Compatibility and Safety of Trunk Mount Bike Racks for a 2003 Chrysler Voyager
  • A trunk mount rack is the most economical way to go but if the issue with the rear glass is still a concern then I would recommend going with a trailer hitch and hitch mount bike rack. We have numerous options for hitches, but I recommend going with a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver. This hitch will be stronger with a higher weight capacity than a Class I or II trailer hitch. I recommend Hidden Hitch # 87717. I have included a link to the installation instructions below. With...

  • Will The Thule Passage 3 Bike Trunk Rack # TH911XT Fit My 2007 Volvo XC70
  • I checked with Thule and the item you selected, Thule Passage 3 Bike Carrier, part # TH911XT, is a confirmed fit for your 2007 Volvo XC70. You will use Fit Dial Setting number 9 when installing the Thule Passage on your Volvo. Also note that you will not be able to use the rear wiper when the rack is attached to the vehicle. When carrying womens, childrens or odd-shape framed bicycles, I would recommend using the Thule Adapter Bar, part # TH982XT. This adapter bar allows those types...

  • Will Thule Venture Trunk Mount Bike Carrier Fit 2015 Toyota Rav4 with Spoiler
  • The Thule Venture is the same bike rack as the Thule Passage # TH911XT and the Passage is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Toyota RAV4. However, since your RAV4 has a spoiler you will want to make sure there is a gap at the top of your rear spoiler for the mounting strap to pass through and attach to the edge of the rear hatch (rather than the straps passing up and over the spoiler). Some rear top spoilers do not have this gap, so you will want to make sure your vehicle does. It's...

  • Will a Linus Dutchi Fit on the Thule Passage 3 Trunk Mount Bike Rack
  • Because of the alternative frame design on the Linus Dutchi you would need to use an adapter bar, # TH982XT, to mount the bike to the Thule Passage bike rack # TH911XT. Another option for the alternative frame is the Hollywood Racks Gordo, # HRG2. It has wider arms so you can place the bike on the rack in different locations on the frame. But, this is only a 2 bike rack. I have included some instruction links and a video of the adapter bar for you.

  • Fit Dial Setting for the Thule Passage 3 Bike Rack When Installed on a 2013 Honda Accord Sedan
  • The Fit Dial setting used when installing the Thule Passage 3 Bike Carrier # TH911XT on your 2013 Honda Accord Sedan is 6. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also....

  • Will the Thule Passage 3 Bike Rack # TH911XT Fit a 2008 Lexus RX350
  • As long as there is an open space at the top of that rear spoiler for the mounting strap to pass through and attach to the edge of the rear hatch, the rack is capable of being installed on the vehicle. (Rather than the straps passing up and over the spoiler). This being said, Thule states that the hatch on the RX350 is not strong enough to accommodate the weight of the carrier plus three bikes, although using the two bike model, # TH910XT is acceptable. To carry three bikes, a hitch...

  • Compatibility of Bike Rack with Hidden Hitch Class I # 60822 Installed on 2006 Honda Civic
  • When the Hidden Hitch Class I receiver # 60822 is installed on a 2006 Honda Civic, we found that the hitch was recessed under the vehicle so that the distance between the receiver hitch pin hole and the furthest rearward point of the bumper was 5 inches. This means the bike rack you use needs to have shank longer than 5 inches, measured from the hitch pin hole in the shank to the closest upright portion of the rack. We don't carry Allen racks, but I looked the rack up, and saw that it...

  • Are Adapter Bars Required to Load Womens Bikes on the Thule Passage Trunk Mount Bike Carrier
  • If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005 as a lower cost alternative. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works. You...
