Pros: everything
"The Saris Sentinal 3 Bike Rear Carrier works a treat. Goes on easily and is simple to use. Bikes are mounted quite easily although my son's bike was a bit of a squeeze. I have also purchased some additional straps to anchor bikes to it, although this is probably about me being over cautious than any perceived failings of the carrier. All in all it is simple to use, small enough to store away easily and carries three bikes. Just what is required!"

Pros: simple to fit
Cons: straps sliding on sides to tail light may cause da
"Whilst the carrier was simple to fit the straps come loose after a period of driving and the side straps are unsuitable for specific types of boot lids. I have a Volkswagen CC and the rear boot is angled in, the strap then slides to the tail light and may cause damage, I have to pack this with soft packing material when using."

"We struggled to find a bike carrier for the back of our car as most models are made to fit hatch back cars.
We managed to fit it with out any difficulties and would recommend this rather than having to consider buying roof racks etc.
Its a bit tricky putting kids bikes on as the frame is smaller but did manage.

"I've had cheap cycle racks in the past but I'm glad I spent 10% more as the Saris rack works well. Easy to assemble (many aren't) and with clear instructions, well made, and strong enough to carry 3 bikes, it has so far done the job well. Only criticism is the clips come without any rubberised protection for your car's paint work, which is a let-down. But it only takes a few minutes to add some gaffer tape and you're ready to go. A big plus is that it folds down easily and goes into the boot while you're riding, so it'll still be there when you come back. Worth waiting a couple of days for delivery to nearest Halford's store."

Cons: straps slip, will not carry oversize tubed bikes
"Good sturdy product, was apprehensive carrying 3 bikes with it being so light weight but it is very strong and rigid and easily carried 3 bikes."

"Does the job well considering how cheap it is. My only gripe is that the metal clips that attach to the car are not covered in a protective foam meaning they will scratch the car paintwork- I have had to wrap them in gaffer tape to protect it. Other than this it is a solid rack that folds and fits in the boot easily. It should be noted 2 people are needed to attach it properly."

Pros: fitted a saloon car
"Spent a long time researching the best bike transporter to fit my alfa romeo 159 (saloon). I didn't want a roof rack, as our bikes are too heavy to lift and I didn't want to spend a fortune.
This carrier fitted the bill - it's good quality and the instructions were easy to follow.
I felt confident driving with one bike on the carrier, would have for two, but we struggled to get 3 on.
The carrier came off easily and left no marks.
Overall a good purchase and once we get new lighter bikes I'm sure we'll be using it for all 3.
N.B. Great delivery service from Halfords, arrived within the 5 days timescale given."
