I used this on a 2009 Chevy HHR to carry my two bikes nearly 450 miles at highway speeds. I have only made one trip with this bike carrier and it has done the job that I expected it to do. The tip down is also a nice feature so that you can access the trunk without having to remove it from the hitch. Another interesting feature of this rack is that the hitch pin is threaded which makes it difficult to remove and impossible without the proper tools. I imagine this feature is there to add more stability to the carrier and to make it more difficult for a thief to run off with your rack full of bikes. Initially, I was a little uneasy with using this because the bikes were seeming to bounce around a lot even on the smallest bumps. I was constantly looking through the rear view mirror to make sure they were still there. However, everything made it safe and sound.
