I'm trying to decide if I should put a roof rack on or not. I just purchased a new 2012 4WD and the dealer said they would throw in a roof rack. They are going to call me to make an appointment. I saw a few pics of CTs with the rack and heard it is noisy with the moonroof open, but I'd like some input from anyone who has one. What do you think of it? I heard that you can take it off and cover the spaces with molding covers, is that true?
Thanks for the input! :)

Everything you said is indeed true for the CT.

I leave mine on year-round, and it is noisy. Considerably more than without (when the moonroof is open).

It does just unbolt and the kit comes with "plugs" to cover up the receptacles when the rack isn't on. But truth-be-told I leave the rack on year-round.

There is at least one thread in the forum already which discussed the rack in depth, and even shows some other aftermarket options.

Thanks! I did do some searching and found some other threads. Couldn't figure out how to delete this one though! :)

I've been using a Rage Performance universal roof rack for years. I can fit it to all of our cars (except my S2000, of course). It's rated at 150 pounds but I've had over 300 pounds on it for a 2,500 mile round trip. It fit my Integra, Accord, CRV and I intend to use it on the Crosstour.

Thule load bars

I wanted to use my older Thule bike & kayak racks, which were fitted to 50" Thule square load bars. Thule calls for 58" bars for the CT. The 50" bars fit very well. I think the 58" bars would be head bangers when getting out of the car.
