I had a set on an old ford escort (my first car which I had 13 years until last year). I put these up and had them up there for about 10 of those years. Best rack system ever, easy to install, does not hurt you car and allows you to use Yakima racks the best racks ever. They are made in the USA and They have an incredible customer service department (they really work with you; USE THAT WARRANTY). Other than that I only had to adjust them 1 time in the 10 years I had them up, the do not move around at all. I question Yakima's spacing instructions and have actually found the wider the base the less movement you have, so play around with your cars dimensions and see what works for you.
