Roof Rack Recommendation for a 1995 Volvo 960 Wagon Without Factory Roof Rack


I would like your opinion as to what roof rack assembly should I purchase for the above car. The car did not come with a roof rack.


Expert Reply:

Since you say your 1995 Volvo 960 Wagon did not come with a roof rack, I assume it has a bare roof with no side rails. Some wagon models of the 960 came with factory installed side rails that run from front to back on the sides of the roof. I have attached a generic photo showing the difference between a bare roof and factory side rails.

I have attached a link to all of the roof rack options available for your 960 wagon with a bare roof. Of the available options, I recommend the Thule roof rack which consists of the following parts.

60 inch SquareBars, part # TH712500
Rapid Gutter Feet, part # TH65BJ

Thule has confirmed that this roof rack will fit your vehicle and Thule is a reputable roof rack manufacturer that makes quality products. The square crossbars are compatible with most roof mounted accessories. If you were interested in any particular accessories such as a bike rack, ski rack or cargo carrier, feel free to email me and I would be happy to make a specific recommendation for you.

If your vehicle has the factory side rails, then you could go with the Thule Evo raised rail roof rack using the following parts.

47 inch SquareBars, part # TH712200
Evo raised rail feet, part # TH710401
