Dizzy What roof racks will fit 2002 SL1?

I'm having a hard time finding roof racks that fit. Thule and Yakima seem pretty expensive new/ don't make ones that fit anymore.

So it's either scavenge online for used which has proven hard.
Or find other knock off bands that fit. Anyone know of any?

I went with a used Thule 400 set. The Thule 400 is pretty plentiful on the used market and many accessories work for it. I believe the Thule Kit 2060 will also fit 3g sedans but I can only guarantee they fit 2g sedans. I like the Thule option because they are very easy to dismount compared to all other brands and don't create a gap in the door line.

There is an actual Saturn roof rack on eBay made for our cars, but it doesn't have keys. Saris doesn't make anything for it anymore so the only way you'd be able to use it is with a trip to a locksmith.

I actually have gotten busy with other things but I been a bit busy... I need to work it out....

The Big question before you get looking at roof racks is how much are you looking at spending they aren't "cheap" but a set of used can be made to work on the non-new pricing

I can speak for Yakima, the new baseline towers will not work on a S-Series but the Q towers will... I have all the info saved on my computer

I actually have set of clips brand new (have a spare set) that I would be willing to let go (direct fit for your car), check your PM I can get you set up

I run the Yakima Q Towers and I've been pretty happy with them. I like the look of the round bars over the square that Thule offers.

Your best bet for buying them cheap is to buy them used with implements (bike rails, canoe stops, kayak mounts, etc..) then sell off the implements you don't want/need. I pretty much broke even on my setup. The clips are the hardest part to find as they are unique to Saturn. Scoop up Saturnins offer and you're of to the races.

Buying them locally has the advantage of cost savings on the shipping. Sell the extra parts on eBay.
