Would you use this bike rack on your X5?

Says that it's compatible for 2012 and 2013 but not prior. It's the Yakima King Joe Pro 3...I got it because I wanted a rack that could go back and forth between my X5 and my wife's van (or Land Cruiser in a year or so)....Only issue I see with it, fit-wise, is the top straps over that rear deck lid.... Doesn't seem to put much strain on it but not sure what to think. The other issue is that my daughter's bikes wont even fit on it nor will one of their bikes fit in the trunk of my X5 either....so....guess this is more of an FYI than anything but would like to hear some feedback.
