Will The Thule OutWay 3 Fit A 2011 Lexus RX 350


Will this fit a 2011 Lexus RX 350?


Expert Reply:

I do have a solution for you. While the Thule OutWay 3-Bike Rack # TH56BV is not a confirmed fit for your 2011 Lexus RX 350.

My recommendation would be the Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack # SA803. This rack is sturdy, capable of carrying 3 bikes at 33 lbs each and yet is still lightweight at 11 lbs which makes mounting to your Lexus easier. Saris provides a limited lifetime warranty as well so they stand behind their product quality.

If you're transporting kids or alternative frame bikes, the Saris Bike Beam Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes # SA3040 is a great choice to help level and secure your bikes. Having used a hanging style bike racks with my own kid's bikes, I can tell you these can save you a lot of frustration to help make the most of an outing.

Included are video resources with more information on these solutions.

Hello I have a 2011 Lexus RX 350 as well. When I went to Saris's website, for the 3-bike version, it says VEHICLE FIT NOTES 2 BIKE / 70 LB LOAD LIMIT. Bikes must be located in positions closest to vehicle. So I am not sure this product with my car is allowed to have 3 bikes. What do you think?

You are correct. The Saris Bones # SA803 on your Lexus RX350 is limited to two bikes. I checked with Yakima and found that the FullBack 3-Bike Rack # Y02633 is a good fit and can handle 3 bikes at once. The total load limit is 90 pounds, or 30 pounds per bike.

@ChrisR indeed that’s correct. It’s unfortunate that was showing that rack as incompatible with my car.
