    Does anybody know of a decent universal bike carrier that will fit a large saloon car??

    I’ve tried to find one for my A6 Saloon 2008 but only seem to find ones that are suitable for upto 2001 models.

    Anybody know of or use a decent one they could reccommend??

    saris bones 3 bike rack, will fit just about any car due its design. Very strong, easy to fit and very stable.

    Thanks guys, I have checked the Saris website and pretty much all of their carriers fit my car. Look pretty cool too rather than looking like a bit of scaffolding.. 🙂

    I have the Saris 3 bike rack, not had a problem with it does what it says on the tin..

    Using on a Zafira atm, picking up an Nissian Quashie next mth should be ok for that too…

    Have had two Saris racks (Gardian & current Bones RS) both excellent and fitted to a VW Jetta (Saloon) fit brilliant.
