    crossbar question

    Are hatch and 4 door crossbar sizes interchangeable? Cause I checked out some OEM crossbars supposedly off a same year wrx hatch and no way were they fitting my sedan. One was much longer (or wider however you look at it), the mounts on my sedan look about the same distance apart. Thanks in advance.

    Over a year on my factory roof rack and not a single problem.

    I thought that the sedan and 5-dr crossbars were the same.

    A quick search yields: Impreza (2.5L) Fixed Roof Carrier Cross Bar Kit 2008-2014, SubaruGenuineParts.com

    Hrrrmmm. The racks I was checking out must have been from another model. From what I saw the oem crossbars looked just as good as any yakima/Thule I've ever owned... Newbie: what did you do to go through three sets of racks!?
