Mine is 11 years old. The way they attach may have changed for the better/easier. No problems with it. I used this box on my previous vehicle, a Honda CR-V and now on a Mazda 3 hatch. There is some wind noise although nothing crazy. Like I said, mine is big. It is a bit of an ox to mount on my own. Take all your toys to the store to make sure they fit. Mine has swallowed up several pairs of skis and several bags (duffels, sleeping bags, etc). Had it on a Dodge minivan once en route to a bike tour. Too much weight for the crossbars to bear. Ended up sticking a few thick sponges between the bars and the van's roof to prop it up a bit...drove across Wisconsin with no probs. Yeah, it's sturdy.
