Roof Racks

Hey All,

I am looking to get a roof rack and I just saw this on Craigslist but I have a few questions:

1. Will that fit my car (2008 Sedan)
2. What else would I need for install
3. Is that a good price

When it comes to roof racks I have no idea what I'm talking about so if anyone could help out, I would appreciate it.

Thanks!

So if 2000-2007 is:

Thule Traverse Foot Pack 480
Thule 50 Inch Load Bar Pair LB50
Thule Fit Kit For 480 and 480R Foot Packs only KIT1565


And 2008-20011 is:

Thule Traverse Foot Pack 480
Thule 50 Inch Load Bar Pair LB50
Thule Fit Kit For 480 and 480R Foot Packs only KIT1620


Would they fit? I'm guessing I go by the 480 and 480R foot packs but I'm not sure. Or do I determine fit by the kit numbers? (Either 1565 or 1620)

Can anyone clarify?

If it will fit, it would be a good deal. Brand new the base system is $365

I can't say for sure, I tried to look into this to fit two vehicles, hoping I could
avoid buying EVERYTHING for both vehicles, but it didn't turn out that simple.

I would recommend you call the manufacturer, but I would also bet money you'll need a different "fit kit," which shouldn't be a big deal.
