It has been pretty stable when using the Saris Bones 2. A little bit of a learning curve to use, but once you understand, it is very easy to use. It is very well made and I am very happy with the quality of service from etrailer.com
It is well designed, relatively intuitive (the installation videos on their webs site are a great help), and very stable when mounted on our car (We have a Volvo station wagon). I wish it had better strap management. When mounted on our car, there are four long lengths of unused strap that need to be coiled and stored so that don't flap around. I don't want to cut off the spare strap lengths because that would preclude using it mounted on a conventional trunk.
This product works very well and is solid. The first couple of times I used it, especially the first, it was complicated to figure out. But now I really enjoy how it folds up pretty small to fit in my trunk. I recommend it.
While getting a bike rack for a sports car isn't ideal, I really wanted to transfer my bike with my own car instead of borrowing my friend's pickup truck. After hours of trying to find a bike rack that would be good for my 07 Mustang, I decided to give this one a try and I gotta say, it has been pretty good so far. It fits very well over the factory spoiler. One of my biggest concerns I was worried about when ordering a rack for my Mustang was ruining the paint, but the feet on the legs haven't left one scratch. I have used this to transfer my bike at freeway speeds (up to 80 mph) on car rides that typically last an hour and my bike was perfectly secure throughout each ride. For extra security, I wrapped both bike wheels with a ratchet strap so the wheels and pedals wouldn't shift in transit. So far, I am very pleased with this bike rack for the price and quality. I would highly recommend this if you want a rack that is affordable and durable.
Clears the spoiler and keeps the bikes away from the car. I am totally thrilled that I bought this bike carrier.
Not a secure bike rack for an Audi A5. The first was too loose to use.
Perfect for my needs. I haul two bikes.
i use velcro straps to keep the bike from swinging. I recommend this rack. I would buy again
Disappointed in this bikerack. I got it specifically for my Prius, as the curved frame fits over the spoiler. Unfortunately there is no where on the trunk or frame of the card where the side straps can attach. The top strap and bottom ones fit tightly but without the tension of these side straps the bike rack will not stay evenly on the car. Almost lost my bike on several occasions After lots of gerryrigging, I discovered if I quickly slammed the trunk with the side straps hanging loosely in the trunk, I should catch the straps and tighten them. This seems to work. Also no matter how hard I tighten it, the center arm (which lies against the rear window) does not stay in place, but slides off center. The rack works fine, with lots of gerryrigging. But should be easier to use given the price. Also be aware, that if your Prius has a rear view camera, this will have to be disengaged eveeytime you back up with the bike rack and bike in place, or your car will automatically brake if you try to backup.
Fits well on my 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Nice, well protected strap clamps for my mountain bike. I really like the two additional stabilizing clamps for the bike to prevent swaying. Light and strong rack. No rust possibility either. Bike holder extensions swing out of the way easily allowing garage door closure without removing rack.
The bike rack is sturdy~ to reduce “sway”, be sure to secure all of the clamps as securely as possible~
I have been using the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack Trunk Mount for a year now. It is so easy to use. It takes just minutes to put in on my car and load the bikes on. I'm very happy with this purchase.
It took a little while to get the arms where they needed to be and straps for the first time to make sure it was secure. But now that we have it set we just put it on tighten the straps and off we go! It's amazing and sturdy a little pricey but it's worth the money, I don't feel like our 2 bikes will fall off. I love It! Just make sure u get a bar adjuster for women's bikes or kids. Etrailer is the way to go, free shipping and it was here in 3 days!
Bike rack fits just right on my 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback. Took a little longer for shipment with COVID but the staff at etrailer stayed in touch with updates on shipment and let me know of its status. I would recommend the rack and etrailer.
this is a very easy to use, solid bike rack. Up to this point I've only used it for one bike, but I'm sure it provides good support for two if needed.
I like it because it fits my car (2020 Toyota Camry Hybrid), which my old one didn't. However, in using it several times, I do have a few suggestions for a version two. I wish it were a bit lighter and folded up more easily for storage in my car trunk. I also wish that the pads resting on the bumper were a bit narrower because they get caught against the trunk and then the trunk won't close. Finally, the straps are a bit long. If they could somehow be made retractable, that would be better.
Just a follow-up message to an earlier review. Beautiful, warm December day; finally had a chance to take the bikes to a county park. The rack worked great!
I have used the Saris Bone 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms a few times. It was a little confusing initially to figure out where the arms and straps attach but, like anything else, the more I used it, the easier it got. The bike fits securely and I don't have to through the expense of getting a bike rack.
easy to put on/off car and mount bikes, sturdy, reliable
The item was shipped within minutes after the order was placed online. (Thanks etrailer.) When the bike carrier arrived and I took it out of the box, admittedly I was a little intimidated by all the straps, etc. But after looking it over and reading the instructions, it was a snap to assemble, mostly because of the large and clear-to-understand images. The Saris Bones 2 bike rack with optional hatch hugger straps fits my 2016 Honda CR-V snugly and exactly as advertised. I'm very satisfied and ready to ride.
I like the light weight and manageable size of this rack. It was a little confusing right out of the box but I had it figured out in a few minutes.
I have a 2018 Honda CRV and was concerned that the bumper is not as deep as most other vehicles - the rack legs stuck out over the edge. Also the "hooks" on the side straps kept sliding up and coming off. I used a 1/2" cork squeezed into the hatch "seam" on each side above the hooks to keep them from sliding. (therefore no 5th star)
I drove 60 miles day one and everything worked out fine!
Backup sensors alert. Otherwise, This Saris Bone rack mount securely and keeps our bikes secure with two straps for each bikes. We travel around 1700 miles through rain, winds and shine. Secure.
The illustrated only instructions were a bit vague. Was resent same instructions when asked for technical assistance with detailed questions and photos. Item was shipped with 3 side straps and 1 bottom strap versus 2 of each. I am working on a solution to resolve this with distributor, but now under a time crunch due to need for a trip
Arrived super fast & took only minutes to install.
It works great on our Honda Civic Hatchback
Sturdy enough to support two large treks.
Saris came recommended by a local bike dealer - looking for a good price and quality bike adjustable bike rack.?
Look no further. Can’t wait to hit the open road this summer.
The rack doesn’t seem as a stable as it should be. I only use it locally as I’m concerned about what would happen when driving at highway speed. Every time after driving the bottom strap comes off even though I’ve tightened everything several times beforehand. It’s unfortunate bc this was the only rack I can find that’s “compatible” with my truck. I also don’t like that there’s no lock feature. I often wonder if it’ll be stolen after my bike ride.
I ordered this bike rack considering that I have a new BMW sedan so I decided to go with a high quality product and I don't regret it. Excellent material, easy to use and won't damage your vehicle. Great choice!

The carrier works fine on larger (adult) sized bikes, but 20" kids bikes barely fit on the forks due to their spacing and their large plastic saddles and straps, and they only fit on the outermost saddles. This is probably true of most fork-type carriers, but customers need to be aware that the carrier won't fit more than one 20" bike on it. In general, I 'm happy with the carrier. One other note, after mounting it on the car and loading the bikes on it, retighten the straps holding it to the vehicle, and stop and do so again after driving a few miles, as they stretch a little under initial load.
Excellent and prompt customer service!
When I first ordered my product it wasn’t in stock— staff were quick to let me know and offered me comparable products.
I ended up waiting for my original order and shipping quick and they stayed in touch with ideas!
Thule: The instructions
could be a little more detailed. I ended up watching YouTube videos to help me instal.
Overall it was easy, and this was the first rack I’ve ever installed and I did it by myself!
I was surprised to learn the bike rack is in no way secured inside your vehicle, so.. I store it in my garage when it’s on.
I purchased this for my son to be able to transport his bicycle to and from college with his Ford Taurus sedan. It was just what we needed and provided safe and durable transport. This email is in response to etrailer's follow-up one year after purchase. I really appreciate the concern their customer support puts forth in making sure the customer is pleased and well cared for. I would highly recommend this product!
My Thule bike rack has worked well over the past year mounted on my Hyundai Elantra GT. Pretty easy to mount whenever I need it, and I do appreciate how the carry arms can be folded down. I will say, however, that as a woman rider it is extremely annoying how bike racks are only made for grown men. So women and children are left struggling. I only use my rack for me and my kid, and it is super challenging to load the bikes onto the arms (and an adapter works for my bike but not for a kid's bike).
The product is well thought out and works for a wide range of automotive vehicles. It comes with interesting dampers that i think work.
Instructions seem to be translated from another language, but are quite good, accompanying pictures make installation straightforward.
A test drive over speed bumps shows that the rack will support the bike for all travel needs. It can be disassembled , collapsed and stored in the trunk.
The rack is made for the classic triangular shaped frame: horizontal cross bar, "male" bike. For bikes without the horizontal bar, mounting is a little less satisfactory. Such a bike can only be mounted on the outside mounts. Cannot use the damper on one side. Picture shows the mounting.
as to a design solution, maybe brackets could be replaced with smaller profile, some adjustability? however, as it is, vibration control is good and adjustability with smaller profile would have vibration concerns.
Ordered online, it shipped the same day. Received it 3 days later. There is a little assembly, but, pretty simple. It took me less than 15 minutes to install and no tools were needed. It is adjustable to be used on many different auto types, but, the instructions were very clear about how to adjust it to fit my 2011 Ford Edge.
I have used it twice so far to transport my bike. There are a couple of items that are inherent in the design, not a flaw, but, you need to be aware of them. First, you can't use rear window wipers. Second, the back-up alarm goes nuts because it registers a bike less than 6 inches behind you (I tolerate it for the few seconds it takes to back out of my driveway or out of a parking lot). Third, there is a little flexibility, it is held on with straps and clamps, not bolts, so, it bounces a little when you go over bumps or make sharp turns, however, it holds the bike fast to the frame and stays on the car. I use mine to transport my bike on short trips around town to bike trails. On a long trip I would suggest checking that the straps remain tight from time to time during the drive.
I have provided a link that shows all of the trunk mount bike racks that are confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Ford Edge.-- Rachael H - 5/15/2015
I am thoroughly impressed. My chosen product was out of stock when I ordered it. Someone immediately contacted me with options, with a no pressure option of just waiting for my chosen rack. I just received it yesterday and it's great. I got the Thule Passage II and it's a perfect fit for my Buick Encore. It took 10 or 15 minutes to install and it's very stable.
Excellent product!! Solid and well made The anti-sway bar will keep my bikes from moving around while traveling.
I brought it too transfer my bikes too different walking and bike trails here and around Nashville, Tn. It’s definitely better than trying too put my bike in my car. I’ve installed the Thule Passage 2 bike carrier- trunk mount on my 2005 infinit G35, I’ve taken some pictures of my installation can you tell me if it’s correct? Thanks
This bike rack fits well on my 2016 Nissan Altima. It is very difficult to fit two my two mountain bikes on it at the same time. The bike mounts on the rack are to close together making it a struggle to get both bikes mounted securely.
When we bought our 2013 Explorer, there was no bike rack available that would fit it. We were thrilled to find this rack for our car. The instructions were easy to follow and the rack performed as expected. During the 100 miles from home to college, we could see our child's bike out that back window sitting solidly in place.
Unfortunately, this device does not fit my vehicle. The description did not rule out my vehicle so I took a chance. Therefore, I cannot review this product as it is still in the box it was shipped in.
The e-trailer video helped me easily install my new rack -- my first time handling a bike rack. Elegant success! And your order/shipping/delivery/follow-up service is excellent -- above par. Thank you!
Yes it will, but it will probably need an adapter bar. Without an adapter bar, the bike either will not fit, or will sit far off balance like in the picture from Melony. An adapter bar provides a full size, level tube from which to hang the bike. Thule offers one, it is part TH982XT.-- Patrick B - 9/4/2013
After a bad experience with a previous bike rack in high winds (not a Thule), we were very leery about bike racks. This one passes every test! We live in a state with high winds- this rack weathered 50+ mile wind gusts with ease. It was easily installed on our Buick Encore-VERY pleased with this rack! I have no qualms about taking this bike anywhere we go! Thanks!
Outstanding bike rack for the price. Clear setup manual, parts do not feel cheap, works exactly like it is supposed to. Put my bike on it, did not even hear a sound of parts struggling keep up the weight. No squealing, no scratching noise at all. One thing to look for is when you tighten the straps with no bike on, make sure you tighten the side and bottom ones again after you place the bike on, as they will come loose as top straps will be holding all the weight. And be ready to sacrifice using your rear wiper since you will not be able to. One thing I wish it came with would be some kind of small Velcro fasteners to secure the loose ends of the straps with. But I just did with duck tape, works just fine, too. Also, outstanding customer service from etrailer folks!
Excellent quality. Easy assembly with clear instructions. Stable attachment to vehicle. The bike(s) are secure on the rack. I do have to remove the front wheel of my bike for transport because it rests too low to the ground. I purchased this bike rack so I can take my bike to different areas of town for my daily ride. I am very pleased with the price, processing and delivery of my purchase from etrailer.com.
The Thule Trunk Bike Rack installs like a charm. Being a solo, senior woman, the installation was challenging the first time, but isn't everything the first time. This bike rack gives me more options to enjoy nature and the outdoors in my area.
Out of the box, this rack looks and feels very sturdy. Assembly is pretty straightforward and the instructions are clear. The buttons you depress to swing the arms down for storage can be a little tough to manage, but the process is quick and simple. Unfortunately, this rack did not work for the geometry of my XS road bike. The arms are fixed and my frame could not fit over the cradle that supports the bike near the head tube. Adding a top tube adapter would not have resolved the issue (it would have resulted in an even tighter angle than the original frame). This seems like a solid product, but probably only suited for 'average' and larger size bikes. Ended up going with another brand rack that was adjustable and offered more versatility for smaller framed bikes.
Easy to set up. Works perfectly. I chose this model because the design of my car only allows this "trunk" type of rack. I worried that it wouldn't be as sturdy or secure, but it's great. Even with two bikes, visibility out the rear is still fine. I have no complaints at all!
Fits my 2014 Prius well. I used an e-bike for it and it handled the weight well. I took the battery off to help. The one thing that bothered me is the rubber straps seem to come off a little too easy. Other than that it's great and holding on to it for regular bikes.
Easy to put on and off the car after you assemble it and put it on the car the first time. Easy to fit two bikes at a time and the straps fit snuggly, which makes me feel confident that they'll stay attached and not bounce around unecessarily.
Fits my 2018gti well. Extra care with the straps is always wise with these types of carriers, but I've not had any problems. I do take the rear wiper off just in case. I've only used it with 1 bike. I'm not sure how I'd feel about two on it, but that's just me.
I had no problem with the installation as the instructions were clear and easy to folow. After simple bike loading and quiet road testing at speed with the bike installed, I am happy with the carreir. The Thule is a quality product. Thank you for your prompt service.
I love this bike rack!! It fits perfectly on my Jeep Liberty and is able to transport two bikes. We have used it many times and it works great! It is very easy to set up and strap the bikes to the bike rack. I recommend this rack!!
I used once and I had to install it incorrectly to make it work. In order to hold the rack in place there are hooks that must be inserted on both sides of the trunk in the opening between the car body and the trunk lid. There was sufficient space on the left side, but not the right. By not able to insert the right hook, the rack could fall off. The rack design is good if there is a space on both sides of the trunk lid.
Works great for our 2 bikes on short and long trips. We have had no issues with this bike rack! It is secure and doesn't cause any damage to our vehicles.
