The rack secures itself very well to my 2006 Civic, however, the adjustable shoes for the bike frame slide when driving. My bike, which was firmly mounted before a 350 mile trip slid about 5 inches on one side backwards, tipping the front wheel into my muffler and melting a brand new $55 tire & tube. I intend to fix the rack with a pipe clamp, but will never again trust the front wheel on the inside most bike.

Conditions will be different for different cars-I got the rack because it seemed to have the softest pads on the car side (a Saris model made a mess of my trunk lid). The 4 straps on this model are easier than 6 individual straps (both for 6 hooks) and it installs in about 2 minutes. I am not a huge fan of the locking mechanism as it is the only cheap feeling part of the rack-it is sometimes hard to align the lock in place.

I purchased it at $124, it was worth it at that price.
