Review of the Thule Passage Trunk Bike Racks on a 2009 Toyota Venza


Today on our 2009 Toyota Venza, we're doing a test fit of the Thule Passage Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack. That part number is TH910XT. We already have our bikes secured down. First, I'm going to show you how we do that. We'll go over some features and then take a few measurements. With our bike in place, we have two cradles with three straps. Two on our frame here and one as our anti-sway in the back.

Start by lifting u and releasing those. Then we can pull our bike off and set it off to the side. We'll take a few measurements here. First, is going to be overall what we are adding to our vehicle. With our arms hanging out, we're adding about eighteen and a half inches. We do have the option to rotate the arms down.

We're just going to pinch at our two pinch points on each side. Wiggle arms back and forth until it comes loose and rotates down. Same for the other side, just wiggle until it comes loose and rotate down. Overall, we're only adding about nine inches. As to how we secure our bike rack to the vehicle itself, we have six straps all together. Two over the top portion of our hatch, two to the sides and two underneath the bottom portion.

We also have these foam pads here at the bottom and at the top that are going to prevent any scratches or abrasions. You do just want to make sure you clean underneath that before you load up your rack. Another thing to note is that we won't be able to use that rare wiper blade with our bike rack installed. As for our fit dial and how we adjust it to secure it to our vehicle, we've got it set to nine here. You would just undo each inaudible 00:01:48 screw at the sides and reinsert it in place. What's great about that is it does fit many different vehicles so you can have one trunk mount rack for all your vehicles.

Make sure to check the Thule fit guide. That's going to be our completed look at the Thule Passage 2, part number TH90XT on our 2009 Toyota Venza.Speaker 2: Here it is on our test course. We'll start by going though the inaudible 00:02:17. This is going to show us the side to side action which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next, we're at the alternating speed bumps, which we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Finally, we have the full speed bumps where we'll see the up and down action, which is just like driving out of a parking lot, garage or driveway.
