Can't open tailgate
on 13 November 2009
I have the 2-bike version of this, rather than the 3-bike version. It is advertised as allowing 'boot access' by tilting. Nowhere on the packaging (or on descriptions on internet sites) does it say that you may only be able to open the tailgate a few inches. Any pictures show a car with tilted bikes and a tailgate fully open.
When I wrote to complain that my tailgate would not open fully, all they said was that I should have tried it out before buying it. How can you do this if buying on the internet? Or even if you buy it from somewhere like Halfords? It comes in pieces which you have to assemble yourself.
So - if you choose this because you want access to your boot without taking the bikes off, just be aware that you might not get it!
