When loading the roof racks, we recommend you evenly distribute the load, as well as maintain a low center of gravity. Loaded vehicles, with higher centers of gravity, may handle differently than unloaded vehicles. Take extra precautions, such as slower speeds and increased stopping distance, when driving a heavily loaded vehicle.
The maximum recommended load is
50 lb (22 kg) for vehicles with a panoramic roof, and
80 lb (36 kg) for vehicles without a panoramic roof. For vehicles with adaptive suspension, the maximum recommended load is
80 lb (36 kg), regardless of roof type. Evenly distribute the load on the roof rack.
Never place loads directly on the roof panel.The intended design of the roof panel is not to directly carry a load.
Make sure that you securely fasten the load. Check the tightness of the load before driving and at each fuel stop.
