Review from a similar OutWay in Trunk Bike Racks

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!


Review from a similar OutWay in Trunk Bike Racks

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.


Review from a similar OutWay in Trunk Bike Racks

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.


Review from a similar OutWay in Trunk Bike Racks

Great product. Packaging came damaged but product looked ok.

  • What Are the New Features on the Thule Trunk Mounted OutWay 3 Bike Carrier # TH56BV
    The OutWay is the newest version of the Raceway. Thule improved the previous design of the OutWay 3 Bike Carrier # TH56BV by using a stronger material for construction, a higher quality locking mechanism, and developed a new retracting system for the ratcheting cables to come up with the OutWay Trunk Mounted 3-Bike Rack, # TH56BV. The OutWay is made in the USA and is one of our top selling bike racks.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2016 Audi A8
    Yes, out of all the trunk mount bike racks we carry I do recommend the Thule OutWay # TH56BV, for your 2016 Audi A8. I have an older version of this rack and it is by far the easiest trunk mount rack I have ever used. What makes it so easy are the 2 retractable cables it uses to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 straps like other carriers. The excess cable stores inside the carrier so there are no loose ends flapping around. The cables are also more durable compared to the straps. And...

  • Available Trunk Mounted Bike Rack to Fit a 2011 Subaru Impreza STI Sedan with Spoiler
    We have a few different trunk mounted bike racks that will fit your 2011 Subaru Impreza STI with a spoiler. Unfortunately, the Thule OutWay 3-Bike Rack, # TH56BV, will not mount to your Subaru with your rear spoiler. The Yakima FullBack 3 Bike Rack, # Y02633, is similar to the Thule rack and is confirmed to fit your vehicle with the rear spoiler. The FullBack rack also has the adjustable arms that will allow you to keep your bike level when in transit. The Yakima rack also uses anti-sway...

    You mentioned that you do not have a hitch, but there is a very good retractable trunk-mounted rack option for your 2010 Ford Escape Hybrid. I recommend going with the Thule OutWay 3-Bike Rack, # TH56BV, which has anti-sway cradles that secure your bikes at three points, No-Sway cages which prevent the bikes from contacting each other or your Escape, and a weight capacity of 99 lbs. The OutWay also has 2 retractable cables to secure the rack to your car, with ratcheting knobs to adjust...

    Yes, I checked with Thule and the OutWay 3 part # TH56BV that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica so it would be a great option. I attached a video for you to see all of its great features. It is the easiest to install of any trunk mounts that I have seen.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2004 Toyota Prius
    The Thule OutWay, # TH56BV will fit your 2004 Toyota Prius! It holds 3 bikes and has a 99 pound total capacity. It can lock the bikes to the rack and the rack can be locked to the vehicle. It uses only 2 retractable cables to attach to the vehicle so it installs much quicker and easier than any other trunk mount carrier I have used.

  • Will the Thule OutWay 3 Fit on a 2005 Nissan Maxima and Carry 3 Bikes that Weigh 20 lbs Each
    Yes, the Thule OutWay 3 Bike Carrier, # TH56BV, will fit on the 2005 Nissan Maxima. This rack is tested for carrying up to 99 lbs on the back of vehicles, and will work great with your 3 road bikes weighing approximately 60 lbs., as long as the rack is properly installed. One tip that I can offer, is that you should position the heaviest of your bikes closest to the vehicle and the lightest bike out farthest. Always carry bikes as close to the vehicle as possible if carrying fewer than...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Porsche Cayenne
    The trunk mounted bike rack that I would recommend as being the best for the 2009 Porsche Cayenne would be the Thule OutWay Bike Carrier # TH56BV. This rack is on of the easiest to install with its patented dial system and is one of the lightest we offer. It also features anti-sway cradles and a cable lock built into the rack. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying women's or alternative frame bikes I would recommend you...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a Kia Sorento
    I checked with Thule and the Thule OutWay, # TH56BV, is recommended for use on most year models of the Kia Sorento, see instructions link. If you could send me the exact year of your vehicle I would be glad to check and let you know if your vehicle is included in the fit list. The OutWay rack is the one I would purchase if purchasing a trunk mounted rack. This rack is very easy to install and remove because it uses rubber coated cables and a fit dial system that makes installation a breeze.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Carrier for 3 Bikes for a 2015 Toyota Camry
    I do recommend the Thule OutWay trunk mount bike rack # TH56BV for your 2015 Toyota Camry. I own an older generation of this rack and it is by far the easiest trunk mount carrier that I have ever used. The 2 cables it uses, instead of 6 straps, make it easier to install and the cables are more durable and store in the rack. The Raceway also includes an integrated cable lock to deter bike theft and the access to the retractable cables can be locked to deter theft of the rack. The arms...

  • Trouble Installing Bottom Hooks on Thule OutWay Bike Rack on a 2013 Kia Soul
    The issue you are having is not uncommon and not unique to the Kia Soul or a specific year. You mentioned removing the hooks from the cables but that is not necessary. All you have to do is get the top hooks in place to support the rack. Then pull the bottom cables out enough and pull open the hatch a little, put the hooks in place, then shut the hatch like normal. I have to do this on my car and my wife's SUV. Works every time. The video thing is coincidence since I have personally installed...

  • Where Should Lower Arm of Thule OutWay Trunk Rack # TH56BV be positioned on 2013 Kia Soul
    The lower arm of the Thule OutWay Trunk Rack part # TH56BV needs to basically be sitting on top of the bumper of your 2013 Kia Soul so that it provides vertical support for the rack. Right now its on the outside of the bumper and needs to be moved up higher till its on top of the bumper.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Without Trailer Hitch
    Since your 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML350 does not have a trailer hitch receiver installed your bike-carrying options will consist of either trunk-mount or roof-rack-mount types (that naturally require a roof rack be installed on the vehicle). Trunk-mount rack options for your ML350 will be the most cost-effective choice and the link provided will let you see all compatible 2- and 3-bike carriers. Please note that you cannot transport more than 3 bikes on the trunk of your vehicle. You can...

  • Will Any Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Install on 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan Without Rear Wiper Interference
    Any trunk-mount type bike rack installed on a vehicle, including your 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan, will interfere with its rear wiper. This is why your previous question was answered with a recommendation to install a trailer hitch and hitch-mount type bike rack, since hitch-mount racks do not require any contact with the rear window of a vehicle. The inability to use a rear wiper with a trunk-mount rack installed in actual practice is not a very severe issue, since the loaded bikes themselves...

  • Will Rhode Gear Ultra Shuttle 3 Bike Rack Fit 2010 Toyota Sienna Mini Van
    Rhode Gear was bought by Yakima some years back and their vehicle fit guide information ceased well before your 2010 Toyota Sienna was produced. I contacted Yakima and they are unable to confirm a fit. This does not necessarily mean that the rack won't work for you, only that Yakima cannot provide absolute certainty. You can test-fit the rack if you wish and determine if it fits to your satisfaction. Usually if a Yakima-brand rack fits your vehicle, then the Rhode Gear rack will too. For...

  • Video Review for Thule OutWay Trunk Mount Bike Racks for 2008 Lexus RX350
    The question you are referring to from Gordon has a basic review video on the 3-bike version of the original Thule Raceway 9002. That generation is no longer available. The 3-bike version is not a fit for your 2008 Lexus RX 350 but the current 2-bike version, the OutWay # TH45JV is a fit for your Lexus RX. I have included the video of the # TH45JV that you could use on your vehicle.

  • Releasing the Arms on Thule OutWay 3 Bike Carrier # TH56BV
    Take a look at step 4 in the instructions. When you open the lever that deploys the arms, you need to push down on the arms slightly to disengage them before pulling up to open them. This should make releasing the arms much easier for you. I have also linked you to the full instructions for the Raceway three bike model.

  • What are the Folded Dimensions of the Thule OutWay 3 Trunk Mount Bike Rack
    I went down to our show room and grabbed a Thule OutWay 3 Bike Carrier # TH56BV2 to take some measurements. All measurements are approximate. When folded up it is 23-7/8 inches wide, 8 inches front to back (this can change depending on how far the arms are folded down), and 26-1/2 inches tall (this can also change depending how the arms are folded).

The upper mounting arm will rest on the rear hatch glass when this item is installed. Please see the attached photo showing how the carrier mounts on a hatchback type vehicle.

  • Can the Rear Hatch on a BMW X5 be Opened with a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Installed
    It is not recommended to open a rear hatch or trunk of any vehicle with a bike rack mounted to the trunk. The hinges of a rear hatch or trunk were not designed to support additional weight and could fail under the weight of a bike rack. Also, due to the way trunk mount bike racks attach to the vehicle, the side straps could fall off or slip once the trunk is open. The hooks of the straps could also bind up and damage the edges of your rear hatch. The best option for not losing tension...

  • Is Thule OutWay 3-Bike Rack Suitable For 2016 Scion iM?
    You mentioned that our fit guide has the Thule OutWay 3-Bike Rack, # TH56BV, as a confirmed fit for your Mazda 5, but is not listed for your 2016 Scion iM. That basically means that we have not had an opportunity to fit that rack on a 2016 Scion iM like yours and I reached out to Thule and they have not fitted that rack on your vehicle either. It doesn't mean it will or won't fit, however, because your Scion is a hatch back with a small spoiler, there is a good chance that it won't fit....
