Roof Rack Availability for a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx with a Sun Roof and Moon Roof


Will the Inno roof rack work on our 2005 Malibu Maxx when it has a sun roof and the moon roof behind it? I dont see where the sun roof will be a problem, but I am wondering if there is enough support for the roof rack when the moon roof reaches closer to the edge of the car.


Expert Reply:

Inno does offer a roof rack for your Malibu Maxx, consisting of parts # INXB138-2, # INXS250 and # INK521. This rack's installation is illustrated in the linked video; it installs on the door frames but will not interfere with closing the doors or be an issue with the moon roof. It is not recommended by the manufacturers to use your moon roof when using the roof rack. This is due to wind noise as well as them not being able to control what and how you load the rack.

Before loading cargo or other accessories on your roof I suggest a check of your owners manual to confirm the vehicle's weight-carrying capacity, which could be less than the rack's 100-lb rating. The lowest-rated component determines the limit for the entire system.
