Product is performing as expected. Have not seen any deterioration after a year, still look like out of the box. They have held up to all my roof rack needs with a luggage box and occasional kayak. Could not be happier with Rola products. 586516

Review from a similar Rola Extended Series in Roof Rack


Let's just say ROLA has garbage for customer service and etrailer has amazing customer service. I thought the packaging was missing parts as most of the pieces were bagged with labels. Turns out that there are parts on the supports already installed so I wasn't missing anything at all. After getting everything on with minimal issues, I realized that one bar is labeled to be the front. I expect that is due to each being differently sized at completion and if you remove them, you need to remember which was in the front (if you can't remember the weight limit sticker would be on the rear bar). They do whistle when going over 35mph. The noise is reduced somewhat when I put the neoprene covers on them (purchased separately), but was still there. Be prepared to turn up the stereo. 562690


Comments

After removal and storage, one of the nuts had seized. I had to have it cut off and find a replacement parts kit to reinstall the rack. I would recommend anti-seize before assembly to avoid the problem.

A cinch to install. Feel very sturdy. I haven't tested them with a load yet but they are quiet and no whistling at interstate speeds. The instructions are clear and follow a logical sequence but be aware that the final step is to seal off the open cavities underneath the rails where the end supports don't cover the opening. You'll have to measure the openings on each side of the end supports so you can cut the strip and then remove the cross bars so you can insert the strips. But it is also a good way of making sure the cross bars have the same amount of overhang! 264596

This is a great roof rack from Rola, I bought it for a great price from e trailer, and installed it myself fairly easily. After that I decided to actually test it on the road for a couple of weeks before reviewing it, and I have to say it has been fantastic. I haven’t had a single issue with the product, it is extremely sturdy, and has come into great use for me already. 5/5 would recommend! 502101

Product is awesome and took 25 minutes to install. Fit my Mazda 3 like a glove. Initially was going to buy a rack that was not in stock.

Fits perfectly. Well built, sturdy and solid. Makes a little whistling on the road, but bearable. Installation instructions aren't the clearest, but with common sense it is easily put together. Mine came with a few missing pieces, but a little trip to the hardware store and problem solved. 492921

Review from a similar Rola Extended Series in Roof Rack


Good price, not too hard to install. The only downside is that while they're installed on their own there is a loud whistling noise while you drive. When it has a cargo box on top of it the whistling dies down. I just put mine on only when I know I'll be taking a trip where I'll need my cargo box and the rest of the time I store them away so I don't have to deal with the whistling noise. I've used them to travel from South Carolina to Michigan and from South Carolina to Florida. All in all it is a good product that serves it's purpose. 607737


Comments

We do generally recommend that a fairing be used to help reduce wind noise for any crossbar system. Another common issue it not having the undercovers installed in the crossbar. Either of these options will help in the wind noise you are hearing.

We had a missing part that our friends at etrailer immediately resolved by going straight to the manufacturer. We needed the part to finish installation and inly had a few days to spare. The part was received in two days and we couldn’t be happier with the product or service. The rails installed easily and we expect an easy cross-country drive with the family. 514779

First, let me say that this is a great rack! Looks good on the car, meets the need...hauling my yak....and was the right price. With that being said, the instructions were more than frustrating...if ypu get this rack....step 4 should come before step 3, unless you don't care about a slight whistling. So after backtracking a step, it all fit like a glove. Cherry on top? Customer service from etrailer...very impressive! 452370

Everything about my experience with etrailer.com has been great, from the phone call to select the proper product for my car to the timely delivery of the roof rack. No need to spend tons of money on a Thule; this Rola did it's job this summer. My 2 children (ages 10 & 13) helped me with the installation. It was easy enough to install on our own. The width of the cross rails was just right to strap upside-down an Optimist sailboat to and from the regattas. Thank you for the smooth experience and great product, etrailer! 424145

Weve had no problems with our Rola roof rack -one year and several regattas later.

The roof rack is still in great condition. It served its purpose once again this summer as we strapped a small boat to the top of our car several times for regattas. It was a great purchase and IS a great roof rack.

Review from a similar Rola Extended Series in Roof Rack


I sincerely hope someone can offer tips to change my low review. The instructions with this item are quite clear. There are not a lot of parts and relatively easy to figure out how it all goes together. Several sites suggest this should fit my 2011 Outlander Sport just fine. However the 45mm bolts are way too long for my vehicles anchor points and the end braces do not sit correctly on my vehicle so the crossbar cannot be attached in a level position. I have attached a picture to slow the large gap created by the bolts not being able to be tightened and a picture of the awkward angle the end brace rests at if you adjust it flush to the gasket. Please offer suggestions as I really want this track to work for me! I'm planning on trying shorter bolts to see if being able to properly tighten the end braces down will make a difference. So far very disappointed in this purchase. 409359

Great product and fast service. The rack was easily installed on our 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. It looks great and seems to be durable. We bought it specifically to haul kayaks. The J cradle is universal (purchased from a store) and this rack has no problems accommodating. This weekend we hauled 2 kayaks on top with no issue. I would highly recommend this product and company. As for me, I will be looking forward to purchasing a hitch and possibly a bike rack from etrailer in the future. Thank you for making everything quick and easy! 412891

Installed this last night on our 2010 Mazda5. Looks very nice. Easy installation, with a couple of caveats: 1. The pedestal hold-down screws were difficult to fully tighten with the provided tool. 2. The cover strips for the bottom of the crossbars bulge out a bit when installed. Those are nitpicks, though. Overall we're very happy with the product. Thanks! 339584


Comments

Thanks for your business and your review, Matt. I have good news! The under cover strips may be trimmed with scissors or a blade to fit your application.

After a year, so far so good! Weve put a fully-loaded large cargo pod on it 2-3 times in the past year and its held up great. A little wind noise but thats to be expected. With the sunshade closed, its hardly noticeable.

Right out of the package the rack looks great. I read reviews and took some time with the install instructions. The unit was installed without any problems. It looks good on my Mazda 5. I tested it for noise on the road and all sounds good. The under bar seals were easy to install and keep the road noise down. I look forward to putting my "Yak " on. Should do the job well. 483712

Ordering, delivery and follow up from etrailer was excellent. Installation was quick (less than an hour) and the instructions were very easy to follow. The 51" and 49" versions were both recommended for my 2006 4 door Mazda 3. I ordered the 51" although the 49" would have fit as well. The wind noise is noticeable but no more than that on my 2010 Mazda 3 which has a Mazda original rack installed on it. I plan to use this for mostly transporting kayak's and would have given it 5 stars but I haven't actually put a kayak on it yet but I am confident it will perform well. 410756


Comments

Thank you for the follow up. After a year and lots of kayak and cargo box loading and unloading Im pleased to say the roof rack is as good as the day I installed it. Ive never had to do any maintenance or repairs to it and Ive very happy with the purchase. Thanks again for the follow up. Cheers

It took me a little over an hour to install my roof rack. That's not too bad for a 70 year old great-grandma. I never did get all of the end caps to 'lock' but I don't think they can come off very easily since I had to use some persuasion just to get them on. Over all, I am happy so far with the price and the look of my roof rack. 485393

Review from a similar Rola Extended Series in Roof Rack


It turns out that you get what you pay for. This Rola rack was about $100 less than the equivalent OEM or Thule one and there's a reason. The bolts and washers to put it together are very fiddly and annoying. On the plus side, this will deter thieves. However, the biggest flaw is that these are aerodynamic bars and Rola has gone and made a huge cutout in their base. This acts exactly like the cut-out on a whistle. To counteract this, Rola does provide some strips in the pack, but there is nothing in the instructions which refers to them. It took me a couple of hours to figure out how to cut them to length and fit them properly, and I think they work. So overall, get this rack if you want to save money, have a lot of spare time, a workshop and a good imagination. 46293

Review from a similar Rola Extended Series in Roof Rack


While the rack seems solid, once installed, installation was very fussy and tedious. I have a lot of experience as a carpenter and handyman. I know how to do things. If you don't, avoid this product. Plan on AT LEAST an hour and a half. The screws which secure the end supports to the factory installed roof anchor points are too long. They bottom out in the roof structure and need to be shortened. The end supports are too short to allow operation of my sunroof. Another half inch of height is needed. I shortened the screws. I can't make the end supports taller. The "under cover" which covers the open mounting channels on the underside of the cross bars is prone to cracking when cutting it. I cracked several short pieces as I was trying to cut it, both with scissors and a utility knife. This is quite disappointing for a product which pops up when searching for a roof rack specifically for my Mazda5, and showing pictures of the product installed on a Mazda5. A reassessment of the basic engineering of this product by the manufacturer is needed in order to make it acceptable. If I didn't need to use the rack in the next twenty four hours, I would have sent it back. 622022
