I have the racks for the top of my car, but after 7+ years of using the same (Thule) rack on all of my cars, I've since switched over to just folding the rear seat and throwing them in the trunk for a couple of reason that otherss have mentioned but I'll echo/summarize:
  1. MPG on the highway suffers with the roof racks
  2. Protect your boards from salt, dirt, water, general road grime
  3. It's easy to buy a cheap ($20-$30) unpadded bag to protect your car from your board
  4. One less thing to do when getting ready to hit the road and shred
  5. Don't advertise to other drivers and LEO that you're some "punk" snowboarder
