1. Poor documentation and instructions, which say refer to the Car Compatibility List at the Sales Outlet or the manufacturer's website. Good luck finding the Car Compatibility list, as I couldn't find it. You need to refer to it to ascertain if part I has to be used with your car or not. If you find Perruzo's web site, you can download the instructions for the Cruiser Delux before you but this and see what I am referring to in the parts list on page 1 and step 2B on page 2 and step 11 on page 4.
2. Step 5 on page 2 shows how to install Part L, which is a molder plastic piece that suppourts the three bicycles. There are two bolts with nuts that hold this part onto the pipes that stick out towards the rear. The longest bolt goes through holes in the middle of Part L, but you will have to drill these holes out yourself. The part is ABS plastic and has an artifact from the injection mold that covers up the hole and it is too tough to cut out with a knife. I have stopped at this point and will take up the assemply later and then edit this review to say how I got on with installing the carrier on my car and using it. See my photo of Part L included here and you can see that the hole is mostly blocked.
It seems quite sturdy and fairly well made, but Perruzzo should pre-drill the holes, so it gets only three stars for now, but only because I am used to DIY other wise it would be two. I had a hard time reading the instructions due to my need for reading glassesa nd it having small print. PDF instructions from the website can be zoomed, but are not as easy to flip through quickly.
Update: last night I sent an email to Perruzzo and was pleasantly surprised to receive an answer by 7:40AM today with an answer to question 1. above. I do need Part I with my 2011 Honda Jazz. They sent a URL where I can find the Car Compatibility List. I will update this review later with more photographs and they might have a URL in them. They won't be clickable links, but they will help anyone find the precise instructions for their vehicle.
I fitted this rack onto a Citroen C4 Picasso (2010 model) and have had no problems carrying three bikes. For those puzzling over how to do it (as it doesn't appear to be an officially supported vehicle), I threaded the top straps under the spoiler and hooked them onto the metal. Don't put the straps over the spoiler - you'll just end up damaging the car and the rack will sit too high up, loading the glass. The middle straps hook onto the glass (no problem as long as no metal is touching) and the lower straps actually went through the tie-down hooks on the floor of the boot. These hold the straps solidly and work well once the boot is closed. I also used a couple of gardening knee pads to distribute the load more evenly - certainly better than using a towel but make sure the car (and pads) are clean first. Once you've done it the first time, it only takes 5 mins to get the whole thing on and off.
I was able to fit it easily and quickly to my Nissan Micra and used the supplied adaptors on the middle straps due to the windscreen extending to the edge of the lid. I think I could've managed to avoid using them as there is metal behind the edge of the glass but I felt safer using them.
I mounted two cycles (a medium MTB and large hybrid) easily and securely. Although I fitted them quite high on the car, I found I had to remove the front wheel off one bike (large frame, 28" wheel) to avoid obscuring a rear light cluster.
On the first trip, we travelled about 80 miles to Kielder, about 50-50 motorways and twisty bumpy country roads. I checked the straps several times during the journey and only had to make an adjustment on the safety strap once (due to the load settling). If anyone has problems with straps loosening, please ensure that the strap enters the buckle from the rear as it will self tighten (this should be added to the instructions!).
Have attached pictures of where we had to drill a hole.
Once you've managed this you're pretty good to go- the rack fits well on my Corsa SE (64 reg). Minor scratches in a couple of places on my car because of the plastic/metal buckle bits but the rack sits firmly once the straps are tightened and the bike was very secure.
