Roof racks are a great way to transport items, but buying roof racks that are not factory made or fashioned for your car can be a big no-no.
Genuine parts are always better than those parts that are designed to work with a huge range of vehicles but that are not specific to any. When it comes to a piece of hardware like a roof rack, this is especially important to keep in mind. Roof racks are a great way to transport those items that are far too large to fit into the cabin of the car. These racks are designed to bolt to or affix to the roof of the car and to make sure that the weight of whatever you have stowed there is evenly distributed along the roof to prevent denting and other issues. A good roof rack that is designed for your car is going to fit better, is going to be easier to install, and is going to be a better product all around.
There are plenty of reasons you should choose a genuine roof rack over one that is produced for the mass market. The first is obviously that a roof rack from Honda is going to fit Hondas better. These racks are also likely to be better made and to be of a higher quality than some other racks. On top of that, these racks are also going to be easier for technicians to install and may even come with a warranty from the factory. Another reason you should choose genuine Honda roof racks is that they are going to be better fitted to your Honda than some other cookie cutter racks.
When it comes to aftermarket racks it is hit or miss if they are going to be good quality, if they are going to last, and if they are going to fit on your car and work well. You may get a rack that is not Honda that works well, and you may get one that falls apart.
