I've had two units atop a Honda Accord all summer, and, for the most part, they've worked well. The engineering does seem a bit crude (see other reviews); in particular the locking devices are unpredictable when the unit is side-loading (or unloading) position. I've solved this simply by hooking a bungee cord to each handle when it's down. I, like others, have had no way of locking the whole unit to the bar -- the cores don't work. Still, I've had no back soreness from lifting my boat overhead as I did with my old Hullaports.
