Great Cargo Box and looks great on car
Review by Gdyear78
I purchased for my Audi Q5 so j would have extra room with putting my dogs in back. Just purchased a new BMW X1 and also fits great. I would make sure whoever is purchasing has a rear gate that is adjustable, that seems to be the trick. Both the Audi and BMW did, that helped.
DON'T GO BY THIS SITE FOR FIT!
Review by LGJ
This is a great box, and I got it because I could leave it on and drive in the garage because it is LO, but wide and long, so u can still get a good load inside. I love the box, BUT while it will fit on top of many SUV's, you will not be able to open the rear hatch, and you risk damaging the hatch and the box. I have used it on a Toyota Highlander & Lexus RX350. The rear door will only open about half way, and u have to be VERY careful to avoid damage. Having said that, if you are willing to deal with that, or have a car without the little spoiler, then go for it.
Pain to Install
Review by Michigan Man
When I ordered online, I checked the Yakima website and it affirmed the Skybox Lo would fit my 2016 Outback. It is over 9 feet long and the rear hatch won't go all the way up. The biggest challenge was installation. The cam locks that fit on the cross bars are very awkward to tighten and close. When I turned the handle too far, both cams fell out. It is then very difficult to line up the cam and put everything back together. It took well over an hour to secure it to the vehicle. A poor design with lots of plastic materials. I would take it back, but I waited a month for delivery and must leave tomorrow to get all the presents to the grandkids.
Doesn't really fit 215 cm skis
Review by Husky mom
I'm giving this 4 stars, because it is a nice cargo box, but not for our needs. We bought this for our new Toyota Sequoia, thinking we could get by with a lower profile box. But this does not hold my husbands 215 xc skis with out putting them in 1 specific location. His 187 powder skis took up all the 'usable' length in the box. The braces that allow the lid to open on both sides get in the way. Also the combination of tapering of the lid and the quick release mechanism in the bottom it doesn't really have much room for our alpine skis, maybe our 4 pair, but if friends are along there won't be room for their skis. This is going back to REI in the morning. I think we will hang on to our old Load Ranger a few more years.
Doesn't fit Honda Pilot
Review by Joel
The Yakima website said this would fit my 2014 Honda Pilot...and it does, except that I can't open the hatch without hitting the box. The factory crossbars for the Pilot are situated toward the rear of the vehicle, and there is no way to adjust it to make it work.
Gave 3 stars because I in general still like Yakima products. Will be returning this 1 today though.
Best Cargo Box We've Owned!
Review by Ean
This is the fifth Yakima cargo box that our family has owned over the years. I purchased this one to carry my ski gear in the winter and my fishing/golfing equipment in the summer. It fits amazingly on our 2014 Ford Escape SUV and looks very sleek. It has only knocked our average MPG down (1) MPG from 24.5 to 23.5. For the amount of extra space it allows us, it was worth every penny. Plus its made of 80% recycled materials. Makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. As always Yakima's customer service is unparalleled. They have bent over backwards to help us out over the years and because of that we are a Yakima family for life.
