Not too bad...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This rack isn't too bad...if you have smaller bikes. We had this set up on our 2010 Subaru Impreza with two bikes on it, each weighing about 30lbs, and the rack bounced quite a bit on the back of the car. It seemed like with every dip we drove over you could hear the rack pop the trunk in and back out again...probably not too good for the paint.
It doesn't come with a very good way to secure the bikes to the rack. It gives you a few small straps but these took longer than I would have liked to hook our bikes up.
If you have smaller/lighter bikes, this rack will most likely serve it's purpose. Just don't plan on any long roadtrips.

Is there any way this will fit on a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire?
No, you will need to get a strap rack that has arms that move independently where the bikes rest. On this rack the only parts that move at the piece that actually touch the car. You will need to look at either the King Joe or Quickback models from Yakima. There are not any strap racks at that price that will work well for your car. You will need to spend at least $150.
does the trick
if you're looking to get a couple bikes from point a to b without spending a bunch of money this does the trick. Only thing I would change is making it compatible to adding stability cradles if an owner wanted to.
After using a trunk rack for several months I started to see a good amount of trunk damage even though I was very careful in removal/installation. If you're going to be driving any kind of long distance then I'd reccommend a roof or a hitch system. They're more expensive, but will do less damage to your car and bikes

Anyone know if this rack can go on a Mazda Protege 5 hatchback? The rack I had for a car with a trunk does not fit on the Protege hatchback. Any suggestions?

I have a general question about rear mount...
I have a general question about rear mount bike racks - can they be easily installed and removed? Or once installed they have to be on your car. I need a rack that I can quickly install if I plan on taking my bike on a trip. I don't often do it, but situations have come up.
Yes, they basically have a couple of clips that pop on and off with the additional of a couple of straps. I'd say about 1 or 2 minutes at most.

Check Yakima's website (www.yakima.com) for specific fit info for your vehicle. Their vehicle fit guide is excellent.
This is the same model my parents used growing up to transport us and our bikes on camping trips, and it holds up just as well as I remember. I have an odd-shaped bike and this rack makes it transportable without buying a separate attachment such as a straight bar (although I might invest in one in the future as they make it easier to load the bike). I have already made several short trips and one long and had no problems. Enjoy!

Not So Much
The money you save by getting this cheaper rack will catch up to you over time with collapses and damage done to bikes. Save for a while and get one with bike stabilizers-it will pay for itself over and over.
Does this include the Glass Hatch Hooks...
Does this include the Glass Hatch Hooks as indicated on the Yakima website, or do those need to be purchased separately?
These do INCLUDE glass hatch hooks for glass trunk or gate mounts.
Great Bike Rack

Works great as described; very solid mount.

Is there a way to lock the rack to the car...
Is there a way to lock the rack to the car ? I have the rack and I'm always afraid to leave the bikes on since someone could take the bikes and the rack.
the best way that I have found to lock your bike to your vehicle using a trunk rack is to purchase a seperate cable lock and use the tow loops that are typically on the bottom of your vehicles bumper. run the cable through the loops on the vehicle and then through the frame and wheels if possible. Typically the persin is trying to steal the bike. If you just want to leave the rack on the vehicle, there is no good solution, but the rack folds down in seconds and can be put into the back seat or in the trunk.
Yakima does offer a new rack called a Quickback that does come with a security cable that i attached to the rack and when you put the other end of it into the trunk or hatchback, secures the rack to the vehicle. This is a brand new rack and is also the most simple rack to put on and take off a vehicle. This may be something for you to look into.
