Looking for new car bike rack

So it is time to start looking for a new car bike rack. Currently I have a hitch mount bike rack but that doesn't work for our Mitsubishi Outlander since we don't have a hitch for that. What would you guys recommend for a crossover style vehicle that holds 3 bikes? I'm preferably looking for something around the $120 & under range.

I'd recommend getting a hitch for the Outlander. Buy it on-line and install it yourself. Check here: http://www.etrailer.com/hitch-2012_M..._Outlander.htm

Ditto. If you already have a hitch-mounted rack, just go to your dealer or another shop that installs hitches and have them order and install one for your specific vehicle. The shop where you bought your rack and had it installed probably has a relationship with a body repair person or shop that does hitch work.

Hitch versus roof is a matter of preference, but there's no way I would go from having a permanent vehicle rack to something that wasn't. There just nowhere near as good in terms of ease of use and bike protection.
