Lightweight and easy to attach to my Lexus 450R... did it myself in about 15 minutes. Took it on a trip across windy Kansas to Colorado. Held a lot more luggage/gear than I was expecting and was a lot less noisy than I was expecting. Pretty sure most of the wind noise came from the actual rack rather than the cargo carrier. Did notice acceleration and gas mileage to a small hit. Other than that I am very pleased with it and plan to use it on all our future trips.
