Hi,

I have a 2011 Qashqai, I am looking at getting a Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier.
I spoke to a guy at Nissan and he mentioned this type of carrier, it also has some good reviews.
The only negative information I have come across is about the clips which attach to the body work of the car, some people say they can damaged your car.

Has any members have this type of bike carrier and if there's any advice  regarding this type of carrier.

ThanksSmile

Qashqai Q11 (20124+) has large plastic roof spoiler.  
The Saris bones requires fitting to roof top edge, so it needs to pass this spoiler.
The tensioning cables should have a straight run, otherwise paint will rub off (minor issue) and tension lost (major concern).
It will at least need to be very high on the vehicle to keep clear of the spoiler, and feet on the glass so your rear vision will be bad.
I expect you will also need electrics and a light board if you want to stay legal.

A new alternative just coming out is,


keeps bikes to the rear and easy to load/unload.
