I had the Yakima and didn't like the way it fit. I now have a hitch mount rack.

Hitch mount isn't the best for snowboard when winter comes back around. Hoping to be able to install a roof rack without damaging the door jams of the car like I did with the fit.

When I went form the Civic to the Accord, I transferred the Yakima roof rack with 58" Bars, Fairing and the Q-Towers. Just had to buy the Q5 clips.

And does it fit nice? Are the doors closing smoothly or will anything get damaged (paint/finish)? Need to haul my daughter to college and looking for a solution. Clearly the trunk won't be enough and I don't want to take two cars . I like this Yakima thing and the basket seems to be a perfect solution for me.

I have had no issues with door closing nor issues with paint chipping with the Q-Towers. They system works well. Just a little bit of advice, if you plan on getting the fairing, the footing on the fairing weathers so make sure you pay attention to it. If they get worn down, the vibration from the fairing will start to scratch the paint. Other than that no issues with the Yakima system.

I also use the RocketBox Pro 14 to carry items when the trunk gets full.

I am looking at this system as well. Did you get the 53" bars or the 60" bars?

The Thule Aeroblade Edge is the only thing I would consider after having a regular roof rack, unfortunately not available for 9th gens yet.
