The product is a great design. It is expensive, but I chose it because I have a right arm problem and I cannot lift a bike high enough to load in the regular bike carrier. With the platform type, it is way easier to load the bike.
I tried installation without going through the manual (I only checked the dial setting for my car), and it took half an hour. If I read the manual first, it should be less than 15 minutes. Installing again, with the help of another person, took only 5 minutes. Tightening the wires with the knobs is easy and secure.
The platform uses retractable rails to suit different bike sizes. The rails flex quite a bit on full load (35 lbs) but I believe the V-shape rail can support the weight without failing. In case it fails, Thule provides limited life time warranty.
Loading 2 adult bikes is tricky, because there is not much room between the two bikes. Finally, I succeeded by putting the bikes in opposite direction.
Really like this bike carrier. The bikes won't "swing" while the car is moving, thus avoiding scratching each other, or my car. However, the limit of 35 lb per bike will keep a lot of buyer back, because a lot of adult bikes, especially full-suspension mountain bikes, are over 35 lbs. My mountain bike is over 35lb. I removed the seat and post , and all removable accessories, to keep it within limit.
Before you plan to buy this, make sure that you have the space to store it. It is big and heavy, not easy to be stored inside a cabinet.
Just if you want to know, this product is made in USA (printed in the box, not shown anywhere in Amazon).

I only wanted a platform bike rack to transport my mountain bikes (29er and 27.5) and my road bike.
I have used this rack now for about a month. It is well made and securely mounts my bikes for transport. Regardless of what the product review reads, your paint will get scratched. I mitigated paint damage, by applying Scotchgard 84906 Urethane Paint Protection Film Strip, 84" Length x 6" Width (link below) to protect my paint. The urethane strip was quite easy to install and I can barely notice the film. I applied the film on the top of the bumper and the top of the hatchback where the cables are mounted.
The rack is easy to install, but it's almost 50 pounds. If the weight is a concern for you, the mount can be facilitated by placing the bottom mounting bracket on top to the bumper first; then fix in place the hatchback cables. Once this is done, you can ratchet the cable taut.
If you only want a platform bike rack and cannot or do not want a receiver hitch, this is probably your only option. Fortunately, it is a great rack; albeit an expensive option.
