Will the Thule Gateway 3 Bike Carrier fit a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen?
asked by: Seth B
Yes, the Thule Gateway 3 Bike Rack, # TH9007XT, will fit on your 2012 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen. This bike rack has 6 straps that will attach to the top, side and bottom edges of your rear hatch. Please note that the rear wiper cannot be used when this bike rack is mounted.
I have attached a link to the installation instructions as well as our demonstration video.
If you plan on carrying any womens, childrens or alternative bike frames, then I would recommend picking up the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT. Some small and angled bike frames can be difficult to load on a bike rack and this adapter will allow you to mount the bikes easily and safely.
I have attached a video review of this adapter bar as well.
