      23 Tundra naked roof with pano sunroof

      The baseline system for my 2023 Toyota Tundra works great and looks awesome. I had a wind fairing and swapped it over to the front crossbar. The sunroof works flawless with items loaded on the bars. 5 stars for sure.

      Nearly 4 years, zero issues

      If this falls off your car you installed it wrong.
      I've had mine on my Golf GTI for nearly 4 years now. It's had canoes 6' longer than the car on it. It's been tracked a dozen times with the rack still up there. With the performance modifications, the ECU flash, and the speed limiter removed, at the track, I've done 175mph with this rack on the roof and it hasn't moved a millimeter in 4 years. It's been on there all summer, all winter, still looks brand new, still solid, no issues at all. You don't even know it's up there until you roll the window down and can hear a bit of wind noise from it at highway speeds. It is pricey, but it lasts.

      Felt great about the installation...

      Fell off my car. 2014 honda. Felt great about the installation. It felt very sturdy. Car is garage kept. All seemed well for a few months.

      Then one day the rear one just fell off. Didn't even find out until I parked my car after the 20 minute drive on highways... I feel terrible about who might have been behind me. I was thinking it was a fluke and I was going to buy a replacement but others are posting the same thing. Moreover, it really looks like they are hiding reviews that have less than 5 stars...

      How scary for you and anyone around you that your back tower fell off. We're really sorry to hear that. Although initial installation can be next-to-perfect and proper care be taken by the consumer, products still breakdown. Often times we find that folks aren't tying their kayaks or SUPs at the bow and stern instead to the rack itself. This compromises the integrity of the rack overtime which can cause it to come loose. May or may not be the case for you. Please reach out to our Customer Service department so we can get you taken care of!

      Amazing roof rack

      Very easy to assemble

      Perfect Roof Rack!

      We have a 2019 Honda Insight Touring. Yakima as of today's date is the only one that makes a roof rack for our Honda. It took me about an hour to put everything together while watching Friends. In the pictures the cargo box isn't locked into place. I only put it together to make sure it fits perfectly and to show my wife. We can't wait for our first road trip. The cargo box is the SkyBox 18 Carbonite.
      * Easy to assemble
      * Easy to install
      * Instructions are very well written with plenty of diagrams

      * The cost. But you get what you pay for. I can see this roof rack lasting my life time.

      HD bars

      Interested in system with HD bars to match truck bed bars. Sad Yakima does not answer/respond to questions posted here from past reviews.

      Good stuff

      I put Baseline towers with Jetstream 60" on a 2018 Kia Soul electric, cause it didn't come with the mounting holes. So far it's super strong, I've been carrying lumber around for some construction, not sure the weight but probably around the max recommended and no issues. I will say that the fit doesn't look that great if you follow the instructions for my model based on the recommended baseclips (the curve on the rubberized bottom seems different than the corresponding roof surface. So I did some minor adjustments based on the shape of the roof when mounting it. Happy I have nice roof racks. Which the locks were included for the prize.

      Works as described, super solid. Installed a set on my camper shell as well!!
