If your vehicle has plastic roof rails, do not mount roof racks or load carriers on the roof rails.
When using the roof rack, make sure that the total load carried by the roof rails does not exceed the loads listed in the previous table. Overloading or incorrectly distributing the load could cause damage to the vehicle.
We recommend you position the front roof rack/bar in line with the center pillar, between the front and rear doors. Position the rear roof rack/bar at least
700 mm to the rear of the front roof rack/bar. Evenly distribute the cargo load to the roof rack mounting points, both in front, behind and across the vehicle.
For cargo carrying purposes, use the roof rails together with the roof rack or bars. Do not use the roof rails alone to carry cargo. Otherwise, it could result in damage to the roof, paint or loss of cargo.
When carrying luggage on the roof rack, do not exceed the gross vehicle mass rating (GVMR) and gross axle weight rating (GAWR).
If you need to carry a load on the roof rack of the vehicle, use extra caution when driving and make sure you secure the loads. Remember that the mass of the load on the roof alters the center of gravity of the vehicle, and increases the crosswind effects, thus affecting the driving characteristics. Drive carefully, avoid rapid starts, hard cornering and abrupt stops.
