Thule does not care. Do not trust the fit guide


I purchased the expensive Thule Motion XT L rooftop box after checking the "fit my car" feature. When the box arrived, I discovered that the box does not fit my 2015 Mazda CX 5 with factory crossbars. The seller would accept the return only if I pay their shipping fee, my shipping fee and a return fee. Thule did not even care. I asked "Do you have crossbars that can be installed on Mazda and that will allow the 5th door to open?" and they responded "Unfortunately, we do not have a solution to fix that hatch clearance issue." Thule has a solution, but they do not care about customers. Thule does not care about your purchase either, because the fit guide still says the box fits. Do not buy the box, it will not fit even if Thule says it fits.

2017 Dodge Durango - Works Great!


Used this to drive from Florida to NY and back. Then Florida to Atlanta and back. No issues whatsoever with noise or truck clearance. My only issue (and this is a general Thule issue) is that the key blades are flimsy and break easily. I know this because I also have a Thule T2 Pro XT bike rack and have broken several keys on it just like I broke one on the Motion. It could have been disastrous but the blade broke in the barrel and I could still turn it. I had only one key though so it meant I could only open it from one side during my trip. My advise, ALWAYS carry spare Thule keys when out with their products. If you break a key it could ruin your day/trip so it's always good to have a back up. Besides the key issue, this product works great.
