Get a 1-1/4" trailer hitch (Volkswagen dealer/U-Haul/larger auto parts store) installed. Get a Thule 2 or 4 bike rack that goes into trailer hitch.
I've been using this setup for several years and many, many thousands of miles (bike trips from NYC to Iowa, Georgia, North Carolina, Long Island).
Very secure. No straps or mess to worry about. Gives me immense piece of mind at highway speeds sometimes well in excess of 80 mph. Quick check of mirror is all it takes to know everything's status quo. And in thousands of miles, everything's been status quo.
