5.0 out of 5 stars XXL fits my 2014 toyota sienna..., December 23, 2014
We downsized from a suburban to a minivan, which forced me to invest in a rooftop carrier. I researched the fire out of Thule and Yakima, and ended up buying the Thule force. Purchased the carrier from REI. The salesman said that they sell 3 thule to 1 yakima, and if it was his coin he would buy thule. I bought the thule force XXL from REI

In the past year, we have been to key largo, orlando, nc mountains, and multiple 350 mile trips to grandma's house. in the 15k miles we put on the van probably 7500 were with the roof top carrier. Here are my thoughts...

1- buy the biggest one you can- I was nervous about this but am glad I went big. REI had to special order the XXL thule. However, it fits on my van, the back gate fully opens and with 3 kids, and a dog, the space is really handy.
2- This thing takes 5 minutes to set up and 5 to take off. super easy
3- Its tough as hell- My interstate trips I'm running 80mph- to 85mph with speeds up to 90mph. this thing can take the abuse... (knock on wood). Im very impressed with the quality of the Thule.
4- gas milage suffers by about 1 mpg. I got 20.1mpg running 80 mph on my last 350 mile trip.
5- The claw attachments are first class. Easy to use, adjustable, and borderline idiot proof.
6- It takes 2 people to put it on and take it off.

All in all, Im very happy with my Thule Force XXL. It doubles our storage capacity, and does so with little pain. I highly recommend it.

perfect shoes for my son. They are very durable, and my adult friends like the "old school" look. My son keeps them tied, and slips them on. He loves them!

5.0 out of 5 stars fixed my sears kenmore He2t!!!, September 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a kenmore He2t frontloader washing machine we a F-27 error code flashing, and failure to drain. I drained the big item filter, cleaned it out, and then ran the machine again. The washing machine was still showing the failure to drain code. I could hear the water pump running, but nothing was draining. After spending an hour on google, I determined that I might need a new water pump, and amazon recommended this one. I had the new pump 1 day shipped to my home, and installed on delivery. Installation took 20 minutes, and was easy enough.
I'm happy to say this pump fixed my problem! We are a family of 5, and having a washing machine go down is a minor emergency. Im happy to report we are back in business!

5.0 out of 5 stars fits 2014 toyota sienna..., April 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Showed up a week after ordering... but the box was massive. It weighed over 100lbs! I won't rehash prior reviews, but I will say that used the install video from [...] which was very helpful.

I did not take the plastic underbody panel off... I instead cut an opening with a box cutter. the plastic panel was very easy to cut. Install was pretty easy.

I really like the unit. It is very good looking, and tucks in under the bumper. Great product at an excellent price!

3.0 out of 5 stars works pretty well... Cheap., July 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This unit does a good job of charging one device. If I plug 2 in at the same time, I sometimes have charging issues. Also, in one of the slots, the apple product rejects the charger as not being compatible.

anyway, I seldom charge multiple devices at the same time, so I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tire for the price..., August 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought a set of these for my 2007 suburban 40k miles ago. They perform well in snow, rain, and highway driving. very good handling, with even tread wear. I was hoping for over 50k miles, but for the price, 40k miles is fine with me! Thanks for this deal, amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars fast! added this to 2008 unibody macbook aluminum..., August 5, 2012
My 2008 macbook was really starting to show its age. Slow boot times, lots of beach balls, etc. I upgraded my macbook Hard drive to a samsung solid state drive. My computer is much faster! I compared my boot times with my buddy's brand new macbook pro. My old macbook is now performing similar to the new macbook pro!

This was an easy upgrade and relatively cheap. If you are on the fence, do it!

ps- I installed the SSD in my optical drive. Computer works great, and no booting or sleeping issues to report. I now have a 1tb WD drive in my standard slot, and the SSD running my OS in the CD slot. SWEET MOD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book..., July 10, 2012
One of the best books I've ever read. Well developed characters make this book. Stop looking, start buying...

By the way, I bought the book on tape and the narrator did an amazing job. I really enjoyed the experience. Well Done!
