    Whispbar wb201 roof rack

    I am getting a new car. My prior car had a hitch with a kuat nv system which was awesome. My new car can not accommodate a hitch. I have been looking at the whispbar wb201 as it looks clean, safe and easy to use. Does anyone have any experience with this system?

    Tesla. You void the warranty if you out on a hitch.

    I've had Whispbar racks on both of our cars for the last several years. I have the ones that go between the rails on top of the car and look like factory racks (rails on top of BMW 5 series wagon and X5 SUV). I like them a lot, they seem to work great with a combination of boxes, bike racks (Thule Echelons and Rocky Mounts Brass Knuckles). On my BMW wagon, I'd almost swear that the car is quieter with the racks on that when off.

    So I think they are a good product and I'd recommend them.

    It's illegal for the dealer to void a warranty for something that does not interfere with the car or with a system that fails. If you put on a hitch and mess up the taillight wiring, or the rear fascia, or it messes up the chassis somehow (they are usually designed so that's no issue, but just speaking hypothetically) or if you really ARE towing and tear up the transmission or engine, then those issues could not be warrantied, but the Magnuson Moss Act makes it illegal to deny the warranty if the system/cause has nothing to do with your modification.
