Mein Auto: '13 X1 3.5 M-Sport
I've been using the Saris Gran Fondo for about six months on my wife's Cadillac SRX and have been pretty happy. The extra weight of the rack can cause the automatic lift-gate to get confused. If I guide it, it lifts no problem, but if I use the remote it works about 60% of the time. I am getting the X1 and because I work in a bike shop, carrying bikes is a daily occurrence for me. I will probably look into a hitch in the spring... But it is nice to know that the Gran-Fondo works too.
