Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of denting The Landing Pad 11 seems like a great product, but it dents cars. Even with minimal tightening it dents BMW 3 Series. The worst part about this is it is a known issue with Yakima and they refuse to change the fit or even put a warning on it. The good news is that if it dents your car you can get them to pay for the damage, but it takes FOREVER for them to process it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A more permanent solution to the Q-tower We had a set of Q-towers fail on an '05 Mazda 3 when we had 4 mt. bikes on our rack. After that we decided to try these for a safer mount. They work and look great, but the mounting options on our Mazda 3 hatchback left the bars too close together for our old wheel-chock and fork-mount bike mounts. Not the products fault, but wanted to mention this for other buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typically awesome Yakima Works great on cars with factory hard-points on the roof. Fit my 2013 Subaru Impreza perfectly. Yakima round bars are much sturdier than the OEM Subaru crossbars (also made by Yakima, I believe, but pretty flimsy aero-type bars).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yakima landing pad The product worked fine--I liked the removable covers especially--but the fixed distance in the car roof was too short to carry my tandem canoe so I returned it for a different Yakima product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from >= any other rack mount method As a former owner of a Volvo wagon with roof rails, the bare racks were noisy at speed and dropped the mpg by 2 or more. I disliked the headache of the 10 minute removal of my bars when I wasn't carrying a bike or kayak. I did a bit of research. A friend advised having rails installed and Landing pads, permitting a very fast removal and installation. My replacement vehicle is the newly redesigned Hyundai Elantra--I felt a bit nervous about having permanent hardware (by a Portland, OR rack installing firm) on a new model car, but I felt reassured by their professional approach re: air bag gas cylinders and positioning the bars so that my kayak wouldn't point up or down. I pulled the trigger, going with the landing pads, but not the rails. Labor was $100. As I had my own lock cores and bars, adding Landing Pads & Control Towers brought the total cost to $329. The standard rack system using Q towers and clips would have required much more work to attach/detach and would have left me feeling much less secure about the installation. The labor cost might be less, if you have a car like Mazda 3, which has nuts built in under the composite roof strips. I am happy.
