Review of the Thule Passage Trunk Bike Racks on a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon


Today on our 2016 Subaru Outback wagon we're taking a look at the Thule Passage 2 trunk-mount bike rack. That part number is TH910XT. Now we already have our bike secured down, so we're first going to show you how we do that. We have two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame and one as our anti-sway in the back. We're going to start by releasing those. Now we can pull our bike off and set it off to the side. With our bike out of the way, we can take a few measurements.

First is going to be overall what we're adding to our vehicle. It's going to be about 18-3/4". Now a great thing about this rack is that it doesn't add as much as a hitch rack would. We do have the option to actually rotate those arms down. We're going to pinch here at our two silver pieces, wiggle those arms back and forth until it comes loose.

Now we're only adding about 8-1/2" to our vehicle. As for how we secure our trunk-mount down, we have six straps altogether, two over the top portion of our hatch, two to the sides above our taillights, and two underneath the bottom portion. Now to adjust this to fit our specific vehicle we have our fit dial here on the side. We do have it set to nine as per the Thule guide. We do want to double check that. We also have these foam pads here at the bottom and at the top that are going to prevent any scratches or abrasions from our rack onto our vehicle.

We just want to make sure we clean underneath where our foam pads are so we don't cause any of that scratching. One other thing to note is that we won't be able to use that rear wiper blade. Now I did mention that fit dial on the side before. That's going to allow us to fit different style vehicles, so you can always have one trunk-mount rack for your entire family. That's going to be our completed look at the Thule Passage, part number TH910XT, on our 2016 Subaru Outback wagon.Speaker 2: Here it is on our test course.

We'll start by going through the slalom. 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.
