Best car bike rack

Hi -

Rather than make the practical choice and get a car with folding rear seats, I got the car I liked and will have to transport my bike on a rack. Sedan with a spoiler - what have you found to be the best, stablest, non-scratching?

Thanks

Debbie

I use the Saris Bones 3 Bike rack. The style makes it flexible for many different car types.

The Bones2 was the rack I had. I used it for the last 1 1/2 years with ZERO issues. The only reason I don't have it now is that I got a new vehicle and got a hitch rack.

The Saris Bones 2 bike rack has been great! I would buy another without question. You will be glad you bought one!
