Anyone know of good quality cross bars under a $100 they would recommend and/or own and use?
I need one to hold a carrier basket, not that much weight.

thanks

I found the Volvo factory option (Thule) bars that snap right into the rain-gutters of my slick-roof V70 for $50 on a car that was listed for sale at a local Volvo Independent shop. Shop owner was happy to sell them to me. Take a look at your local CL and see if any V70 or S60 P2 cars have these removable cross-bars. Though if you have euro-rails, all of this is no help, though craigslist is where you'd find a used set of Thule/Yakima cross-bars and euro-rail clamps (usually fit a variety of sizes of euro-rails).

i have been looking everywhere I can locally. so far the search hasn't been good. i did find a set of OEM square rails but no response from the buyer for over a week. the search is still on but also keeping an eye out for other options.

A quick search (2.5 hours from you) shows a Thule set for 35 bucks on CL.

Depending on which car in your signature you're seeking them for (I would assume the 01 v70 since you're in this section), these are on ebay for a 100 buy it now (s60):

And these for a v70 for 48 bucks! (but not OEM):

Yesterday I just happened to stop by Strandberg Auto which is a local Volvo/Saab euro junkyard and they had just gotten a XC70 with OEM volvo cross bars! picked them up for $75 they were in great condition!! I'll post up some pics as soon as I get the roof basket on!

I love Strandberg Auto. Been going there since the 1980's and every time feels like a religious experience. Glad you scored.
