    Got this for my 2015 Subaru Forester- it looks great and doesn't really lower my gas mileage. Have drove across the country twice with it thus far and haven't had any issues. Only issue is that you have to take the antenna off with this box, but that's not with every car.

    Purchased at REI. Salesperson checked website and advised this box would be compatible with my 2016 Subaru Outback. I found that when opening the rear hatch it scrapes the rear spoiler. I will be returning it for a Skybox 16 or possible the Thule Force XL 625. With the exception of the above the Skybox 18 seemed to be an excellent product.

    Picked up an older model at an REI garage sale and it's been great! It doesn't seem to affect mileage too much on my 2001 Subaru Outback, even with a full load. Yes, it does interfere with the back hatch, but you can still open it most of the way and it's the second largest box Yakima makes, so it's to be expected. I experienced very little wind noise at highway speeds.

    The mounting clamps are sturdy, easy to adjust, and fairly intuitive. You'll probably want a buddy to help you get it on and off your car though.

    My only complaint (and the reason it was so cheap at the sale) is that the scissor lift style hinges that allow the box to open on both sides can bend if the box is loaded improperly or if the alignment isn't right. Mine came with a bent lift. Still, it barely affects performance, and so long as you don't overfill the box or slam the lid you should be fine.

    Just installed on my 2010 Acura MDX, and it fit perfectly, even with the hatch open! Was looking at the 16, but was really glad the 18 fit, with two kids and a dog, we can always use the extra space. Love the look of the textured lid too, but that's just personal preference. Can't wait to load up next week for body boarding on Vancouver Island!

    Its awesome, easy to install. Their guide said it would fit my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee but the back hatch won't open w/out scratching the rear spoiler. Exchanging it for a 16, hopefully hatch opens good with it. Only a 4 star b/c their website says it fits but not really.
