I have the rack below. Good price and no issues. A few buddies of mine use the same rack and they also have only positive things to say.

*Edit to say that a few days ago I posted a picture with the rack and bikes. You can find it on my profile.

There are a bunch of different mount options:
  • Roof
  • Interior
  • Liftgate
  • Hitch
Which are you considering? If you have a hitch that will be the easiest to use. Next easiest would be interior mounting, but that will limit your cargo space. Roof racks are problematic for these cars; they're tall! My last-resort option would be one that straps to the liftgate--these are a PITA to install and remove.

Plus they will damage the paint.

If you are just transporting one bike, Interior mounts are pretty awesome. They keep the bike out of the weather and safe from any sort of theft. I have a Large frame dual suspension and it fits with the front wheel off and seat down without issue.

It fits two road bikes just fine. The interior rack was the whole reason I got this car. Keeps my bikes safe and clean.

Here is my way of hauling. We still can get all of our stuff in the vehicle even with the bikes. Two roll board suitcases, several coolers, folding chairs, plus a bunch more. Just hope I never get a flat on the trip!

requires 4 bungee cords, 5/16 threaded rod, some 5/16 plastic washers and some 5/16 wing nuts.

I am using the Thule two bike trailer hitch mount. I purchased mine from a guy on craig's list and it was significantly less than retail.
