2021 Jeep Renegade

Originally I was looking to put a hitch on my 2021 jeep renegade sport for a hitch mount bike rack, after seeing that I would either have to remove seam sealer and drill holes in my rear subframe (this is not a good option living in the rust belt), or remove my entire back bumper off and cut holes in it for the factory style hitch, and still have a rack that is illegal and blocks my license plate/brake lights turn signals I decided to look at different options. A roof rack is a little too high to lift a bike on comfortably. This thule outway platform 2 takes about 10 minutes to install correctly, and is solid and holds the bike securely, and the rack locks to the vehicle, and also the bikes lock to the rack no extra purchases required (comes with 2 keys and plastic spoiler supports). I have driven 80mph over potholes and bumps, also on extreme hills and has held securely.


Great product. Packaging came damaged but product looked ok.



Ordered for a 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid and it fits perfectly. Carrier feels solid and was easy to put together and mount on vehicle.


The rack is great just what I was looking for.
The only issue I see is the straps are plastic so after using them for a little bit they broke. I had to order replacements. Let’s see how much time they last!


Great bike rack. The cable and hook system is extremely strong and tight and being bike to open the trunk with the rack attached (but without bike) is a godsend for packing. Assembly is somewhat difficult due to Thule’s IKEA-style picture instructions. Watching the video is essential. Once assembled, however, attaching and locking the rack in place is pretty simple. Be sure to wash and dry hooks, bumpers, and car surfaces to avoid scratches!


Best bike rack ever


The rear hatch mounted rack fit my X3 just as your website indicated - the technician who described how this rack would fit. I'm impressed with how well it is designed to be stable and to not impact the plastic spoiler above the rear window.

  • Best Bike Rack for Both a 5th Wheel Trailer and a SUV
    The best bike rack that will carry both an e-bike with fenders and a Trek road bike is going to be the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches item # S94FR. This bike rack is rated to be used on all vehicles, motorhomes, and trailers. It has a 70 lbs capacity per bike. You will still be able to access your rear hatch with the carrier attached but you may have to remove the bikes. I measured the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack # S94FR for you and the distance from the center...

  • Carrying Bike Rack on 2021 Toyota 4Runner that is Towing Trailer
    It's actually not recommended to tow a trailer with a trunk mounted bike rack for clearance reasons but we do have a great solution with the Lippert Jack-it # LC429756 which installs by attaching under the jack mounting flange and allows you to carry two bikes above the propane tanks. Then to use it in a hitch you'd want the # LC723359.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2011 VW Golf that Will Not Dent Bumper
    I don't recommend the platform style OutWay, # TH65JV on any vehicle that does not have a metal bumper. The rack is heavy for a trunk mount rack and after adding the weight of bikes to the rack it can deform plastic and fiberglass. The Thule OutWay hanging rack, # TH45JV is a better option because it is lighter. But with any trunk mount bike rack there is always the possibility of leaving dents in the bumper fascia. Be sure to remove the rack when it is not in use to help avoid this from...

  • Will the Thule OutWay 2 # TH65JV Fit My 2020 Subaru Forester with Rear Spoiler?
    I have great news! I confirmed with Thule that the Thule OutWay Platform Trunk Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH65JV does fit 2020 Subaru Foresters with rear spoilers. With the OutWay, you will be able to use the Plastic Spoiler Reinforcement Strap that is provided with the rack. The OutWay comes with a 33-pound per-bike weight capacity and has the benefit of implemented locks to protect your bikes and the rack itself from theft. On top of it all, the rack is made 100% in the U.S.A.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack For A 2016 Toyota Prius
    The Thule OutWay Platform Trunk Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - Adjustable Trays # TH65JV is not a compatible fit for your 2016 Toyota Prius. Instead I recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02634. This truck mounted bike rack features a 4-strap mounting system and interlocking HUB for quick setup on your Toyota Prius. The adjustable arms have SuperCush anti-sway cradles with ZipStrip straps for easy bike loading as well as integrated locks to secure the...

  • Availability of Thule Trunk Mount Bike Rack To Fit 2013 BMW X3
    The one Thule trunk mount rack that fits your 2013 BMW X3 is the Outway Platform # TH65JV. It's a pretty unique style compared to the common hanging style trunk bike racks you usually see. I have the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack, part # Y02637, that will fit your 2013 BMW X3 if you prefer a hanging rack.

  • Will the Thule OutWay 2-Bike Platform Rack Fit a 2019 Honda Accord
    The Thule OutWay 2-Bike Platform Rack part # TH65JV is indeed not a fit for a 2019 Honda Accord per Thule. In regards to the exact reason, Thule simply does not provide this info. I have tired many times in the past to ask about certain fit issues with a trunk mount bike rack but no real reasons were given other than the fit teams decided it would not work. That said, we do have a really great replacement option for you in the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack part # Y02634. The FullBack is...

  • Fit of Thule OutWay Platform Bike Rack # TH65JV on 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe and 2014 Sonata
    According to Thule, their OutWay Platform rack, part # TH65JV is a fit for both vehicles. This being said, due to the heavyweight nature of this bike rack (almost 50 lbs), I typically don't recommend it for newer vehicles and vehicles with plastic clad bumpers as the weight can cause damage. It would be better suited to a larger SUV. You should also take a look at the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms Item # Y02634. This 2-bike trunk rack weighs only 28 pounds...

  • Platform Style Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2013 Honda Crosstour
    I checked with Thule and they do not list the OutWay Platform # TH9003PRO as a fit for your 2013 Honda Crosstour. We do have some trunk mounted racks compatible with your vehicle. We have the two bike Yakima HangOut # Y02637 and a few 3 bike options # Y02638, # MPG2139, and # MPG2142. These are currently the only fits confirmed for your vehicle.

  • Options for Carrying Bikes on a 2012 Toyota Prius V
    I have an option for you to carry bikes with your 2012 Toyota Prius V, but there are no trunk mounted bike racks that will work on your 2012 Toyota Prius V because of the spoiler. You are going to want to install a trailer hitch and use a hitch mounted bike rack. For a hitch I would recommend the Draw Tite Hitch # 24847. I attached installation instructions and an installation video for you to check out also. For a bike rack I would recommend the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Carrier part # S64670....

  • Which Thule OutWay Trunk Rack Fits 2016 BMW 2 Series
    I checked with Thule and while they have the 2-bike hanging style trunk rack as a fit for your 2016 BMW 2-Series they do not list the platform style. The platform version is pretty heavy and the older versions occasionally dented vehicles so they are very cautious about listing it as a fit for your vehicles. I'd rather recommend you go with the hanging style OutWay instead that is part # TH45JV which we know fits well and is really the best option available for a trunk rack for your vehicle....

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2014 VW Jetta
    The only trunk-mounted bike rack that will allow you to open the trunk of your 2014 VW Jetta is the SeaSucker Komodo Trunk Bike Rack # 298-BK1910-SV because it mounts with four vacuum cups instead of straps. The reason a trunk cannot open with a trunk-mounted rack is because opening the trunk will cause the straps to loosen and the rack to fall off. The vast majority of trunk-mounted bike racks use straps to secure to vehicles so they need to be removed before opening your trunk. For your...

  • Which Thule OutWay Fits 2011 Kia Soul

These are both discontinued. The newest version of this line is the OutWay. It comes in a 2- Bike # TH45JV, a 3-Bike # TH56BV, and a Platform model # TH65JV. Take a look at the attached video to see all of the great new features. This line is the most popular and the absolute...

  • Recommendation for a Trunk Mounted 2-Bike Carrier for a 2013 Buick Enclave
    The most popular 2-bike rack being used on the 2013 Buick Enclave would be the Thule OutWay trunk bike rack, part # TH45JV. This rack has easy-to-use fit dials for tightening the attachment straps, and it includes a built-in cable lock for securing the bikes. Since the bikes would hang on the two arms of the bike rack, you would need an adapter bar, part # TH982XT, if you plan to carry women's bikes or other bikes with slanted or oddly-shaped top tubes. The adapter bar allows the bike to...

  • Trunk Mount Hanging Rack or Platform Rack For 2011 Honda Accord
    I can help you find a bike rack for your 2011 Honda Accord. With either a trunk mounted hanging rack or trunk mounted platform rack most of the weight is on the trunk because that's where the bike rack attaches. However, the racks do come with support straps that attach to the top of the vehicle as well so that helps with support. To carry 3 bikes on the Honda Accord Couple or Sedan, I recommend Thule Passage 3 Bike Carrier part # TH911XT because the weight capacity is 105 lbs compared...

  • Recommended ThuleOutWay Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 1990 Volvo 740 Wagon and 1995 Volvo 940 Sedan
    According to Thule, several of their trunk mounted 2-bike racks will fit both your 1990 Volvo 740 Wagon and your 1995 940 Sedan, but the Thule OutWay Platform-Style Trunk Mount Rack you mention, part # TH65JV is not one of them. The vehicles can not support the almost 50 lb weight of the rack plus the weight of the bicycles. The OutWay 2-bike hanging model, part # TH45JV would be an excellent choice, as long as the weight of the bikes does not exceed the 66 lb weight capacity of the rack....

  • Is a Bike Adapter Bar Required When Carrying A Ladies Bike On The Thule OutWay
    If your women's style bike has a slanted top bar, it will likely work on the Thule OutWay # TH65JV without an adapter bar. If your bike is a step-though style and does not have a upper crossbar for the frame clamp to attach to, you will want to use a bike adapter bar. I personally like the Rhino-Rack Bike Frame Adapter Bar # RRRBCA021 because of its push-to-operate tabs and budget friendly price. I have attached a review video of this adapter for you.

  • How to Install a Bike Rack on a 2022 Audi A3
    To carry a bike with your 2022 Audi A3 you'll need to have a hitch fabricated by a shop (since there are none custom made for your vehicle), or use trunk mounted rack since there currently (July 2023) are not roof rack options for your vehicle either. For a trunk mount rack I recommend the Thule OutWay which comes in 2 different styles: - Hanging Style 2-Bike # TH45JV OR 3-Bike # TH56BV - Platform Style # TH65JV This rack was designed for high-end vehicles both with how it attaches...

Another bike rack that you may be interested in from Thule is the Archway 3 Bike Carrier, # TH9010XT. This bike rack uses 4 rubber pads that rest on your vehicle to prevent scratching or damage to your vehicle.

    I have an awesome solution for you but the Thule OutWay 2-Bike Platform Rack part # TH65JV is not a good fit for your 2017 BMW M3. Instead you can use the SeaSucker Mini Bomber Roof 2 Bike Rack - part # 298-BM2006 or the SeaSucker Bomber Roof 3 Bike Rack part # 298-BB3008 . These are the best bike rack to use with higher end vehicles that don't have the standard options available for them (hitch or trunk mount). They have incredible holding power, go on and off of the vehicle very quickly...

  • Platform Trunk Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT
    For your 2013 Hyundai we do offer a trunk mounted platform bike rack that has been confirmed to fit. Check out the Thule OutWay 2-Bike Platform Rack # TH65JV. As far as trunk mounted bike racks go this is one of the nicest ones around. Check out the review video I attached for more info. I would strongly recommend you stay under the weight capacity for this rack (33 lbs per bike) and clean the rear of your vehicle every time you install the rack on it.
