I'm new to roof racks and Thule's product line. Are the towers in this picture the old the older Aero Foot, or the newer 480 series? I've been told they are from a 2009 Mazda 3 hatch, but the owner that just bought the car has never had them on.

Price is right, but if it's the older Aero Foot vehicle specific kits aren't made anymore. The current Thule guide shows equipment from the 2009 Mazda should fit the Cruze if you changed the vehicle kit.

I wish I had a side view of the foot. I talked with the seller, he has no idea what he has.

I want to trust him, but I also don't want to spend 100 miles one way to drive there to look at them, to find out I'm dealing with something really old.

Thanks guys. I foud out I believe they are old Aero 400 towers. They are no longer supported by Thule. I learned a lot googling, and I was wondering why he was only asking $25.00. I really thought it was because of his location, and his I don't know what they are attitude.

Obermd-

I read your thread about the Cruze specific Thule design not fitting a Volt. Are the bars too short? Or does the Cruze GM specific product use a different bar design than a Thule direct kit.

I'm not sure how much I want to invest in a rack specific to the Cruze given it's a 6 year old car, and I don't even have a Kayak yet, but would like to.

Thanks guys.. Had I waited you would have saved me a lot of googling last night, but I learned more than I ever wanted to know about roof rack towers!

Bars are too short. The Volt is wider than the Gen 1 Cruze.
