If the vehicle has a roof rack, you can load cargo on top of your vehicle.

✽ NOTICE

If the vehicle is equipped with a sunroof, be sure not to position cargo onto the roof rack in such a way that it could interfere with sunroof operation.

CAUTION - Loading roof rack

When carrying cargo on the roof rack, take the necessary precautions to make sure the cargo does not damage the roof of the vehicle.

Loading cargo or luggage in excess of the specified weight limit on the roof rack may damage your vehicle. Severe wind updrafts, caused by passing vehicles or natural causes, can cause sudden upward pressure on items loaded on the roof rack. This is especially true when carrying large, flat items such as wood panels or mattresses.

WARNING - Driving with roof load

Always drive slow and turn corners carefully when carrying items on the roof rack. The vehicle center of gravity will be higher when items are loaded onto the roof rack.

This could cause the items to fall off the roof rack and cause damage to your vehicle or others around you.
