It is not a bad rack. For certain applications it is the best way to go. I had a Honda Del Sol for a while. It is a targa top car, so no fit for a roof rack and a hitch can't be installed either. I had a trunk rack for a while, but then bought a full suspension MTB. I bought the Hunch Rack mainly because of that bike. One thing I did like was that I could open the trunk without removing the rack, which I couldn't do with another trunk rack. The Hunch Rack works best on cars with long trunks or hatchbacks.

I have one for use on a Focus hatchback, had to re-configure the straps to make it work. It seems a little "cheesy", prone to rust. All that said, it might still be a good deal for you. Just don't "store it on the car". It does go on & off easy enough and is way cheaper than a roof or hitch mount (unless you already have a treailer hitch) and looks cooler & works better than most trunk/hatch type racks. Hope this helps, psychodan.

I mount it on my Mazda Protege and use it to carry my recumbent. I put my road bike in the trunk, with the back seats folded down. So, with a tiny car, I can tote two bikes.
