Thule said it was unsafe to mount the rack... so you did it anyway?Hi there!
I have been doing some research, as roof racks are a "MUST" on my cars, and was really surprised for Thule's answer:
"Thank you for contacting Thule Customer Service.
Unfortunately after extensive testing by our engineers, this car is deemed a no fit due to the fact that there is no safe place to attach the rack to the roofline of the vehicle.
Thule Customer Service Team"
Said this, I started trying some options with a Thule dealer, and we managed to get installed the roof racks with the Foot kit of the Gen 1 Cruze. What was modified, are the rubber bases of the rear part, that we had to find others...(will post number when I take them out).
Haven't loaded anything yet (I have windsurf equipment) but they seem pretty solid...altough I'm afarid the roof isn´t as hard as my VW Jetta was...hope I don't get any dents...
Yeah, and bumblebees are aerodynamically unable to fly. I've had a roof rack on the last five compacts I've owned. What a twit.I had a talk with a USA Chvey Customer Service, and their answer was "It´s a small car, small cars cant have roof racks, You have the option of changing your car" I was shocked.
It's not the same car. One is made in Lordstown with steel and bolts, one is made in Mexico with salsa and tequila.I like how they say it's unsafe or that they don't make one for the hatchback, but I've seen them made for the sedans.....it's the same car...
