I used A GetAway hitch mounted rack with a two door passenger car. It has a capacity for two or with an extension, four bicycles. I only actually used it with two and only for urban transport.

The rack has a built-in locking system to secure the bikes and an optional lock will secure the rack to the hitch. The reason I wasn`t interested in a trunck or roof mount is because the metal in cars isn`t as thick as it used to be and a trunk mounted rack restricts access to the trunk.

This particular model will pivot away from the car to permit access to the trunk. I also had a custom hitch built because the available models didn`t spread loads out enough. The metal under a car isn`t as thick as it used to be either.
