Hi,

We recently bought a 2019 Ascent and want to use a 2 bike Thule Archway (2 bike carrier) 9009 rack that we already have. Of course since the Ascent is so new its not listed in the bike rack fit guide.. wondering if anyone has been able to use some thing similar.. is it the same as a Tribeca or a Forrestor fit? IF not do any of you have recommendations on a trunk mounted bike rack that holds 2-3 bikes.. Dont want to get the hitch mounted systems for the Ascent just yet.

Thanks, Z

If you are ultimately planning a hitch rack, I'd just do so immediately.

Even if the Archway can technically be fitted to the Ascent, those strap-on racks are brutal to cars. I had a one long time ago put dents where it hooked onto the door. The spoiler also might be an issue with all that weight hanging on it. The thought of straps touching the paint and also holding tension against the spoiler looks like a recipe for paint damage.
