Roof Rack Recommendation for 2018 Honda Pilot that Allows Sunroof to Open Potentially


I have a 2018 honda pilot exl bare roof, no factory rails with a sunroof and I was interested in the square thule roof rack with the tranverse 480 and the fit kit. The listing says that I should not open my sunroof while its installed. Is that the case? Is there a set that will work with my sunroof? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

With aftermarket roof racks you really don't want to open the sunroof of the vehicle as it will create quite a bit of noise. I checked with other roof rack manufacturers and Yakima, for example, only has the line:

If your vehicle is equipped with a sunroof or panoramic glass roof, prior to operation, ensure adequate clearance exists with roof rack and/or accessories installed.

So the Yakima JetStream rack part numbers # Y00426, # Y00146, and # Y06152 would be a great option that has similar aero shaped, 60 inch crossbars as well.
