Roof rack (Outback - if equipped)

CAUTION
  •  For cargo carrying purposes, the roof rail must be used together with the roof rack. The roof rail must never be used alone to carry cargo. Otherwise, damage to the roof or paint or a dangerous road hazard due to loss of cargo could result.
  •  When using the roof rack, make sure that the total weight of the roof rack, carrying attachments and cargo does not exceed the maximum load limit. Overloading may cause damage to the vehicle and create a safety hazard.

Cargo can be carried on the roof after securing the roof rack to the roof. When installing the roof rack on the roof, follow the manufacturer's instructions.

The maximum load limit of the cargo, roof rack and carrying attachments must not exceed 176 lbs (80 kg). Place the heaviest load at the bottom, nearest the roof, and evenly distribute the cargo.

Always properly secure all cargo.

Installing carrying attachments on the roof rack

When installing any carrying attachments such as a bike carrier, ski carrier, kayak carrier, cargo basket, etc. on the roof rack, follow the manufacturer's instructions and make sure that the attachments are securely fixed to the roof rack. Use only attachments designed specifically for the roof rack. A roof rack set is designed to carry loads (cargo and attachments) of not more than 165 lbs (75 kg). Before operating the vehicle, make sure that the cargo is properly secured on the attachments.

NOTE Remember that the vehicle's center of gravity is altered with the weight of the load on the roof, thus affecting the driving characteristics.

Drive carefully. Avoid rapid starts, hard cornering and abrupt stops. Crosswind effects will be increased.
