Don’t waste your weekend! Go explore with Saris’ Bike Porter Trunk 3-Bike rack. It’s outfitted with adjustable features to fit a vast variety of vehicles. Constructed of sturdy, durable steel, the rack’s frame has 15 different easy-to-adjust positions. It’s held in place by foam-padded legs and four straps, each with a smartly coated hook to protect your car’s finish. The bikes are held down with ratcheting, anti-sway straps and rest in protective, grooved rubber cradles, which allow the shift cables to slot down underneath and away from the top tube.

This product I am very unhappy with. I have a Ford Escape and it fits very poorly. Every time I need to fold the arms down the entire rack collapses so basically I have to re adjust the whole thing, and its the same process to get it ready for a bike. I have to loosen all the straps uncollapse the rack and then tighten it all over again. It is a pain and time consuming. Also there is NO WAY this will fit 3 bikes on it. None of the holders are adjustable at all. Lastly, two of the nylon straps that are supposed to be held tight with the teeth...decided to no longer work. So there goes that stability.
The directions and online video were helpful setting up the bike rack. It's sturdy and easy to use.
We purchased this with our (small) tax refund and have been using it every weekend. Love biking along the Chicago lake front. Ever since we bought it, we bike more often.
The rack works very well! I've carried a couple bikes and have used it on a few different cars. I've used it for long distance driving and it holds up securely. Would recommend!
This rack is perfect for a couple or young family. Holding 3 bikes it's great for traveling to vacation destinations.. a couple beach cruisers and your road bike to stay fit while on vaca. We love it so far and will eventually upgrade to something larger to accommodate a growing family ;)
We use this rack on a hatchback (Pontiac Vibe). It is fairly easy to set up and use and holds the 3 bikes very well. My one complaint is the mechanism to adjust the angle of the rack is sometimes hard to move because the "teeth" don't slide out easily. But once it is set for the angle you need there is no need to adjust again. This is an affordable rack with a lifetime guarantee and it works on many different types of vehicles. I have loaned it to my brother and it works well on his Honda Fit.
I purchased the Porter for use on my Toyota Prius 2 years ago, and it has been serving me well ever since. I am able to set it up quickly, and I appreciate knowing that my family's bikes will be securely attached for both long and short car rides. I would absolutely purchase another.
I purchased this product this past summer so that my son and I could transport my granddaughters (including his & mine adult bikes) between our two homes. I have a compact sedan and he has a crossover SUV. This bike carrier adjusted to both vehicles with no difficulties. It is was easy attach to both and feels extremely secure.
It only took a few minutes to install. Love the way it breaks down and can be stored away until your ready to use it again.
I only started road biking in early February 2013 and was previously putting my bike in the back of an SUV.I was unsure about a carrier at this point as I had one in the 90's to carry moutain bikes and the bikes never felt secure when we were driving. The carrier also left dents in the car. At riding events I looked at what people were using and then talked to the staff at the bike store and decided on a Saris 3 bike carrier. After reading the instructions and taking some advice from the salesman at the bike store, the Saris installion was quick and easy.I am very happy with this product and ready to ride anywhere.
