    if you cannot afford a hitch rack, this may be a good option.

    Pros
    Affordable, adaptable, sturdy if installed correctly

    Cons
    I bought this to use on rental cars, it works well, once installed, you cannot open the trunk or hatchback.

    Overall I would say this is an okay rack. It definitely gets the job done, and I do not have to worry about my bikes being secure. It's not a bad buy for the money.

    Pros
    Lightweight
    Durable
    Good Support

    Cons
    Somewhat difficult to install.
    The red snaps that you pull up to adjust the angle of the supports are cheap (I was expecting better quality)

    Love this rack! I recommend this rack to anyone who, like myself, does not want to mess around with a roof rack. I purchased the King Joe 2 so I cannot technically attest to the qualities of the King Joe 3. I assume they're the same.

    Pros
    Fits virtually every vehicle. It fits on my little Chevy Malibu and my Jeep with little alteration between the two. Goes on easy too! I am very happy with the stability as well. I do a lot of interstate travel with my bike and it does not seem to budge in high winds. It is relatively small and should fit in your trunk when not in use. I like the option to close the pads in my trunk too. Comes with two built-in bottle openers!

    Cons
    It is a tad cumbersome to put on, but if you can't get your rack on your car maybe you should find a different sport.

    enough padding for protection of car
    good brand reputation
    stylish
    bought on sale for 90 bucks

    Pros
    rubber straps are strong & elastic to wrap around frame
    strong to hold 2 bikes, haven't tried with 3

    Cons
    a little hard to install w/ 1 person bc of straps you have to use to tie down rack
