Will Truck Mount Rack Affect Hatch on 2021 Subaru Forester Over Time


I have a 2021 Subaru Forester. Interested in buying a bike rack that is for the back gate vs. hitch type. Have there been any issues or concerns about lessening the integrity of the lift gate?


Expert Reply:

There won't be any issues with the liftgate longevity when using a trunk mount bike rack on a 2021 Subaru Forester because the hatch should not be opened with the rack installed even when there is no bikes. Therefore, there won't be an affect. If you're looking for a trunk mount rack I recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack part # Y02634. This rack has rubber feet to prevent scratching, adjustable arms for the best ground clearance, and cam-buckle straps for a tight fit on the vehicle.
