Can I Leave Roof Rack On Through the Winter


I have a 2015 Nissan Rogue. Can these stay on through a Chicago winter or should they be removed?


Expert Reply:

Yes your roof rack is okay to stay on your vehicle through the winter. The crossbars # RRVA126B-2 are constructed of aluminum and will definitely hold up. The nylon foot pack # RRRLKVA is weather resistant and the Fit Kit for your 2015 Nissan Rogue # DK396 is rubber coated.

Here in Missouri(not as harsh of winter as Chicago) we leave our bars on year around and we don't have any issues. Sometimes the lock core will show a little bit of wear from winter conditions but several people have had their roof rack on for years without any issue. One time to take your crossbars off is when you go through an automatic car-wash.
