Expert Reply:

For your 2013 Hyundai Sonata (based on your concerns) I would advise a different method with which to carry bikes. Getting a bike on a roof rack can be difficult especially for a smaller person regardless of arm strength.

So for you I recommend using either a trunk mount bike rack or a hitch mount bike rack. Either of these options will also cost less than a roof rack and roof bike rack and will make it easier to load the bikes.

For a trunk mount bike rack I recommend the Yakima FullBack # Y02634. It weighs just 21 pounds and attaches to the vehicle with 4 straps. It features easy to use straps and anti-sway cradles, and it will be much easier to load the bikes. I have linked a video review for you.

If you want to go with a trailer hitch then you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24965. Then for a hitch mount bike rack I recommend the lightweight Swagman XC, # S64650. I have linked a video review for you.
