Good luck, there is no such thing as a cheap & good rack system for anything.

Problem with magnetics is that modern cars have different amounts of steel per sq foot due to thickness etc, so one car may be fine, the next may have hardly any hold. Maybe Yakima just stopped making them because they were unreliable?

Company I work for makes door mags for taxi's etc and it's hard to know if they're gonna be good from one vehicle to the next.

They may just be discontinued. The packaging in the pic looks old and worn. This is why I was wondering, were they discontinued for a reason, like failure.....
