High quality product; I have a Honda Fit and I would say that it will work but does not seem super secure. I am able to successfully use 2/3 sets of straps.

You mentioned that you were able to use two thirds of the straps and I wanted to know more details on the other straps? Would you be able to send a picture of the rack installed?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/16/2022


Great product selection. Easy installation. I recommend it to everyone.


The bike rack works some of the time, but repeatedly needs adjusting during use and when not in use. If you lift your trunk up to go in it, the bike rack slams into your rear window. This is a hazard. I had to go through extreme lengths just to secure it to my car. If one of the latches fell off, which it frequently does, the whole thing needs readjusting. The blocks that are supposed to protect your cars paint job don’t work. It scratched my paint job on my car up terribly, as a result of the rubber blocks flipping upside down. I do NOT recommend this product. Buy another bike rack. This one’s too much of a headache!

For trunk mounted bike racks you will want to check the adjustments with every use. It is not recommended to open the tailgate then the bike rack is installed. To help reduce the chances of scratching the pain I recommend cleaning the racks pads and the place on the vehicle that they come into contact with. You can also opt to add a hitch to the vehicle and use a hitch mounted bike rack. In the short term it would be more expensive however it would eliminate the issues that have been described.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/12/2022


Not bad. My first rack for my first XXL bike (Trek FX3 disc). At first was annoyed at the sparse instructions and the “fact” that the top straps weren’t long enough to reach my trunk’s top hinge. Went to collect my bike anyway and the shop assistant showed me that it was total user error: I had the straps in backwards and doubled.
Anyway...she showed me how and we tightened it. Racked the bike and drove the 12 miles home. Wasn’t sure about it (and it’s not the best rack I’ve seen) but it’s simple and does the job for me. Not driving cross country with it but even if I did, I think it’d be secure.

Pros: simple, secure, not too big at all/easily stored.

Cons: not many bells and whistles, doesn’t keep the bike far enough away from the car (pedal might bump the paint depending on how crazy you drive)


I bought this bike rack as a gift for my son after he bought his first car. It fits nicely and is easy to install. It’s also easy to mount the bike on the rack. I feel like it was a great value for the cost. My son is happy with it!


It took a little effort to stop the straps from slipping, but after everything was seated securely and tightened I was able to take my bicycle on the highway without a problem. After months of use there are still no marks at all on the car.


they finally used it and loved it. thank you

Works great we love it!


I purchased this item a year ago, since May 2021 but never used it. Nevertheless, it appears to be fine.

2010 Ford Focus

I have a 2010 Ford Focus SES with a small spoiler on the back and I was having trouble finding a rack that would fit MULTIPLE bikes that could fit my car without crushing my poor spoiler. This one did the trick! It also fit my boyfriend's car easily, and seems like it would fit a whole variety of cars.

This rack is super adjustable and easily fits 3 bikes. I've had it for a year now and have loved using it. Big thanks to for making it so easy to find this!


I just received the bike rack and put it together with the help from the video provided by etrailer. It was very helpful as I'm not the most mechanical. The service was excellent.I ordered the wrong bike rack. I call customer service and Amy E took care of my mistake. She even helped me selection the one that would fit my car. Plus she called and gave me the instructions on how to return the wrong one I ordered. I really appreciate the time Amy took to correct my problem. Plus the bike rack looks great!


Although it is installed, I cannot use it because I had to order an adaptor. I am a woman and the rack only fits men's bikes. Would have been nice to know this when I ordered it. The "sale" price is not as much of a sale since I spent $[XX] for the adaptor.


Pretty straightforward assembly. No tools needed. My initial use of this (with one bike) the rack seemed pretty stable. Was delivered in a timely fashion (ordered on a TUE, delivered FRI). I would recommend this to any families looking for a multibike rack for their vehicle.

2018 Toyota Highlander

The directions are Terrible for install. I’m just hoping my bike doesn’t fly off my car

Thank you for your review. I apologize about the poor instructions. We have an install video that you can watch to make sure your rack is on correctly. The only difference between the strap placing on a sedan vs an SUV is that on an SUV the straps will go up to the top of your hatch and the rack bar will be sitting about at the license plate area rather than the bottom of the trunk.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 08/18/2021


Works great the only thing missing is rubber coating on the hooks on the trunk
Would help to protect the car from unnecessary dings


I think it's very well-conceived and executed. My daughter has preternatural cleverness with these sorts of things, sort of like a character in *Dune*, and she helped me install it (she's 9). Since then, success!

  • Recommended Low-Price Trunk-Mount Bike Rack for 2015 Toyota RAV4
    Trunk-mount bike racks confirmed to fit your 2015 Toyota RAV4 are shown on the linked page. The lowest-price option is the Malone Runway Trunk Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # MPG2142. This is good for occasional use. I attached a review video to see if this is a good choice for your application.

  • Malone RunWay Top Straps Don't Seem Long Enough for 2013 Toyota Prius
    I do not have a picture showing the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack # MPG2142 on a 2013 Toyota Prius but I can tell you that Malone does not have specific instructions for vehicles so getting it just right is going to take some trial and error. I recommend getting the top straps in place first and then going from there. If you have the bottom leg of the carrier resting on the bumper then it should probably come up a little to rest at the bottom part of the license plate well.

  • Is the Malone Runway Trunk Bike Rack Going to Damage My Trunk?
    I understand your concern. Fortunately, we have not heard about any damage to vehicles' trunks when using the Malone Runway Trunk Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # MPG2142. From the weight distribution of the rack, most of the force is actually allayed to the bottom bar that rests above your bumper and the hooks that attach into the front of the trunk. The angle in your photograph looks normal. I went ahead and attached a picture of our expert installation to give you a comparison.

  • Can The Malone Runway # MPG2142 Arms Fold Down?
    You're not doing anything wrong. The arm where the bikes rest are one with the top tube that touches the top of your trunk. The Malone Runway # MPG2142 cannot fold down when not in use.

  • Spare Tire Mounted Bike Rack for 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara
    For your 2003 Suzuki Grand Vitara we have the Malone Runway 3 bike rack part # MPG2142 as a confirmed fit that would work great. It is a 3 bike and you specified a 2 bike but using a 3 bike rack to carry 2 bikes gives you a little more room to work with and makes loading/unloading bikes easier. There isn't a 2 bike option that fits.

  • Will the Malone Runway Fit on a 2015 Ford Fiesta Hatchback
    Yes. There are a number of bike carriers that will fit on the back of your 2018 Ford Fiesta hatchback, including the Malone Runway Trunk Bike Rack for 3 Bikes - Adjustable Arms # MPG2142 you were looking at. This is a nice value rack that has adjustable arms to help allow you to carry bikes level; the only downside is that it does not come with any type of locks included. You can add a cable lock with the Malone LoopLocks Cable Lock - 1" Diameter Tubing - 46" Long # MPG2168. I've linked...

    The Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack # MPG2142 will fit your 2019 Volkswagen Tiguan, even with the rear spoiler. As long as you remain under the 33 lbs per bike weight rating you will be good to go. Please note that with any hanging style rack like this you will want to use an adapter bar like part # MPG2165 for any kid's bikes or any bikes that lack a horizontal top tube. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

    There are trunk mounted 3-bike racks that fit your 2010 Chevy Traverse though the SportRack SR3141 is considered a universal fit and we have not had a chance to test it on a '10 Traverse. Due to this I could not specifically guarantee it will fit, but there is a very similar rack I can confirm that does, the Malone RunWay # MPG2142. This rack attaches to your vehicle with a 6-point strap system and you can angle the arms for adjustment as well as fold them flat to make it easier to store....

    Yes, the Malone RunWay 3-Bike Rack # MPG2142 is a confirmed fit for your 2019 GMC Terrain. It will hold two adult bikes and a child's bike, though the child's bike will need an adapter bar in order to give it a horizontal mounting point (this is true for all trunk-mounted bike racks).

  • Recommended Malone Trunk Rack for 2018 Subaru Crosstrek
    I have a solution for you, but the Malone RunWay 3 # MPG2142 is not a confirmed fit on the 2018 Subaru Crosstrek. Instead, you'll want to use the Malone Hanger 3 # MPG2139, which is a similar rack and has adjustable arms to help. The Hanger 3 is a bit better option too, since it comes with locks integrated, so it will keep your bikes secured to the rack. I've linked a review video of this rack for you to have a look at.

  • Comparing Malone Runway and Malone Hanger Trunk Bike Rack for a 2022 Hyundai Elantra
    The Malone Runway Trunk Bike Rack part # MPG2142 and Malone Hanger Trunk Bike Rack part # MPG2139 are both fits for a 2022 Hyundai Elantra. The main difference between the two is that the Hanger has locks for security of the bikes and another pivot point for greater adjustability with the vehicle. The greater adjustability means a better fit and less contact. The Hanger however is a bit heavier at 15 lbs compared to the Runway at 9 lbs. I recommend the Hanger due to the added security and...

    So long as your 2017 Subaru Impreza hatchback does NOT have a spoiler, it is perfectly compatible with the Malone RunWay 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack # MPG2142. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you plan on carrying kids' bikes or bikes with a step-through or alternative frame you will need to give the bikes a horizontal mounting point by using an adapter, the Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005.

  • Will the Hollywood Racks Express Work On a 2003 Toyota Matrix with 29 Inch Tire Men's Bike
    It is possible that you could use the Hollywood Racks Express 3 Bike Carrier part # HRE3 on your 2003 Toyota Matrix but since this is a rather small vehicle and the arms on the Express are not adjustable, you might run into issues with the men's bike hitting the pavement because of the larger tires. Therefore, a better option for you is the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack part # MPG2142 as you can angle the arms up to provide more clearance.
