Just received my Rola roof rack for my 2012 Jetta Sports wagon with side rails. My big concern when I both these was the sunroof. The sunroof just nearly touches the bottom of the front rack when it opens before it slides back when installed exactly where the instructions said. I was able to adjust them forward an inch and this resolved that issue. There is no interference on the back even with the bolts protruding down a bit. I do know if I have my surfboard rack cushion the sunroof won't open but I'll just leave it closed when I go to the beach. If anything hangs down with other accessory carriers it also will not open but another inch forward and it will all be clear. Overall initial review very good. They seem very strong so I am sure it will be OK with my surfboards or canoe. The installation was super easy. 237575

Installation of these cross-bars was very easy. -remove the keyed-cover, -loosen the screw (releasing the lower clamp) -fit the cross-bars to the vehicle -tighten the clamp screw -replace the keyed-cover I do wish that the front cross-bar was a tad longer. I'm sure that this is a functional setup, but I would prefer to see more overlap of the end-cap and the rail, similar to the fit of the rear cross-bar. 179872

I purchased these for a 2009 VW Sportswagen and they were a perfect fit. They were very easy to put on and have a nice low profile look to them. 160057

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


Very happy with the product but there are a few minor annoyances. 1. The included bolts are quite short, so you need to push down on the rack, to thread them in, that is quite difficult as you need to push down, find the thread and screw it in at the same time. 2. The included security star key fits but is loose, so you need to press down on it otherwise it starts to wear the bolt. 3. The rubber gasket fits around the roof, but doesn't go down far enough to seal the rain gutter, so there is a hole in the front and back of each foot. 4. There is wind noise but no whistling, at 40+ kph you can hear a deep wooooo sound, but again its not loud. 5. The plastic covers are very brittle, I broke one of the hinge mounts during the initial installation process with very little pressure, lucky its not vital and the locking mechanism and still works. I bought this rack, because I needed more cargo space for a weekend trip. I know I will be using this infrequently, which made this products price very attractive. I borrowed a Thule Cargo box(see picture) and it worked perfectly. The ability to use a T-Channel mount is great too! Was given a T-Channel snowboard mount that fits perfectly. Would have given this a Perfect score, if it had longer screws so that I could put it on and off easier. Its definitely a solid product, and I am very happy with the purchase. On a side note, the Customer Service was exceptional through the pre-purchase, ordering, and post purchase stages. Thanks Etrailer 29142

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


I gotta say I am impressed by the ROLA roof rack! I have put it through some very hard conditions in a short time. Let's start with the installation. To install this roof rack was SIMPLE and EASY only took me15min. Next... I've heard some scary stories of the automatic car wash being a roof racks enemy. Not in this case! Went through a high powered wash with no problem. Next was my weekend, road bike trip the way there is a 1 hr drive through the so-cal pass! With pot hole free ways, high winds and rain. But none of that compares to getting hit at a dead stop by another car. Thank you etrailer.com for my new roof rack by ROLA you saved my road bike! Hopefully my car can be fixed and I can continue using this great product. If not, I will definitely buy another for my next vehicle. Thanks again! 176508

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


I've had some time now to get good use out of the roof rack and overall I'm fairly pleased. The only real issue I have is that when my bike is installed, I can't lift my hatch all the way open without the spoiler hitting my bike tire. Not a huge problem, just a little annoying. But as for the rack and bike carrier, they fit perfectly and I love that they're black to match my car. Thanks for the advice you guys provided me with. I've attached a couple pictures for you to check out. 111792

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


I got this because it looks better than most of the Roof Racks - doesn't stick out the sides like a Surfer trying to make an SUV out of a Station Wagon. UPS had knocked one of the ends off the box and the driver and I went through it and everything seemed to be there and undamaged. This is a nice looking and well designed product, but it was very difficult to install the four bolts into the roof of a Mazda 3. I'm an Engineer and a Modeler and frequently attack difficult mechanical challenges - this was not easy! The plastic cover with the lock is really not very tough. It may just fly off as I drive! But, overall, I think it is a good product at a good price. And not to be forgotten -etrailer was fabulous. Follow up e-mails, shipping e-mails with dirct links, and faster shipping than I ordered. I would highly recommend them to anyone. 50054

Fits great. Looks good. documentation a bit hard to follow (installation instructions) 73051


Comments

I cannot get the front rubber foot pads to fit the roof evenly as do the rear pads as I tighten them they pull down more at the back and lift at front. Also the front clips that clamp onto the pillar top of door frame do not fit flat against the body as they do in the rear. I ensured the bar is correctly located on the roof but its almost as though the front crossbar assembly is a bit short. Although the rack will likely function properly, there is definately a fit problem at the front. Any comments regarding this issue?Thanks!!!Tim

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


I just received my new roof rack and I'm absolutely in love with it! I received it within 2 weeks of my initial purchase date in mint condition. It is probably one of the easiest things to put together...you can't really screw it up. The roof rack fits my brand new Mazda2 (2014) perfectly and it doesn't make my car look cheap in anyway. One thing I was looking for in a roof rack was to have it fit in the anchor spots at the top of my roof and this one fits like a glove. I'm extremely happy with this as I am travelling to the cottage with 2 kayaks next weekend and I'm happy I'll be able to arrive in style with this! 214165

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


We bought the Rola rack for our 2012 Honda Pilot to carry our kayaks on vacation. Our Pilot but did not come with a factory installed rack, and we really wanted a rack that we can put on and take off depending on need. The Rola rack came as described, feels really solid and fits great on the Honda Pilot. After a little bit of fiddling with the clips, and making sure pads and clips were all installed in the right place, I was easily able to install the rack by myself. We are also very happy with e-trailer for providing some excellent information that helped us with our choice. 212734

The Rola GTX Roof Rack fits my 2013 VW Passat perfectly! It was easy to setup and install. They look great on the car. The folks at etrailer.com answered my concerns before ordering and supplied emails as to the progress of the order and shipping. I will be using this to carry my kayaks and also other camping gear. This is a quality product and great buying experience. 73385

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


Just put this on my 2011 Mazda 3 last night. Fit is good. Looks great. Not very loud. Haven't put anything on it yet, but it seems stout enough. As for etrailer.com, they shipped it free and it arrived a day early. Their email customer service is very good, and I would choose them again. My only issues: 1. The box was a little trashed and retaped, but that may have been UPS anyway. 2. the tape used to keep the two rails together left its adhesive on my otherwise beautiful rack, and I could get the adhesive off with goo remover. I'll try alcohol next... 14496

Review from a similar Roof Rack Sport Series in Roof Rack


Unclear what RBXL refers to and also unclear which Ski Rack fits best with this cross bar. Did not find a matching one on the website. Nice looking sleek design and the bright aluminum finish looks kewl on my dark blue SUV but wish there had been a matching ski rack. Ordered the Thule slider -- not here yet - so we will see if they are really compatible. The ROLA cross bar looks better than the Thule cross bar, but the online pix are not extensive enough to really know. 109237


Comments

RBXL is the name that Rola has assigned to the particular type of attachment system, the claw that grabs onto the factory siderails on your SUV. Rola does offer a 64 ski/snowboard carrier, part 59600. The Thule Pull Top, part TH92726, that you ordered will fit on the Rola crossbars you have installed on your SUV.

The picture's of this rack, really don't do it justice. The mounts and the cross bar are both constructed very satisfactory and very robust. The fit is simply "great", and the look is perfect on my Subaru CrossTrek. I will be using this mainly for kayak's, so being sturdy, and able to resist the salt air here in Florida will be very helpful. Glad I ordered this product, and the response from etrailer on my order was equal to Amazon, which is saying something. Thank's 107175

This rack has been a great addition. I have mounted additional kayak and bike racks on the Rola rack. Vince and the staff at E-Trailer have been Great! The manufacturer was late in getting my replacement rack to E-Trailer and to make uo for the lost time E-Trailer shipped my racks using 3 day shipping at no cost to me, I really appreciate there efforts, and because of that will continue to use E-Trailer for any future purchases. Thanks again Vince! 195291

E trailers customer service has been excellent. Just installed the rails today. Measurements for installing rails are not correct for our 2008 Nissan Rogue. For one, their metric to American conversion is wrong. And second, the placement on the side rails is also incorrect. Other than that, install was very simple. We did take a ride on the highway and definitely noticed some noise. We haven't used the rails for anything yet so I cant comment on usage. 193880

Etrailer please dont lose site of what you offer, people like me appreciate it. Rola roof rack good quality, good finish, fit well. Bolts were hard to start, couldn't catch a thread, but rubber pads were cold and stiff, would have been easier on a warm day. Thanks I'll be back 62628

Comments

i am concerned about the weight limit. how much are you putting on the roof rack, at a time.

comment by: Emily M - 06/27/2014


5118

The weight limit of your roof rack is not only dependent on the weight rating of the roof crossbars. It is also dependent on the roof weight rating as issued by your vehicle manufacturer. This information can usually be found in your vehicle owners manual or by contacting your local dealership. You will have to abide by the limits of the lowest rated component of the system.

Install was really easy. All you needed was a tape measure to even up the bars and scissors to cut the bottom wind guards. They seem really sturdy, like REALLY sturdy. Once I got them tightened down I could even budge them. I haven't noticed any additional wind noise with them on either and they look pretty good on my car. Looking forward to testing them out next month on our beach trip. 217337

Not only was the customer service top notch from etrailer.com, but the product itself was EXACTLY what I was looking for to attach to the top of my 2011 Mazda 3 5-door.

I was looking for a tight fit permanent rack but this is designed as a quick on/off rack. The mount sits across a part of the roof that has a different elevation in height and the seal is compromised. I suppose one could silicon it or even ignore the lack of seal. It is a great rack otherwise. A mount and seal that did not sit across both elevations would be better. 38429

Everything worked really well, and easy to put on. The only problem I had was the lengths, the one they marked front had to go on the back, and vise versa, because they didn't match up with the holes. Over all though it's really good. It looks much more sleek then the yakima or Thule roof racks in my opinion. I'll have to see how it holds up though. 6014

There was a delay in delivery, but this was due to a different billing and shipping address, etrailer wanted to be assured it not a fraudulant order.
