Secure the crossbars to the roof rail before loading. The crossbars are available from a NISSAN dealer.

Always distribute the luggage evenly on the roof rack. Do not load more than 99 lb (45 kg). Be careful that your vehicle does not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or its Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR front and rear). The GVWR and GAWR are located on the F.M.V.S.S. or C.V.M.S.S. certification label (located on the driver’s door pillar). For more information regarding GVWR and GAWR, see “Vehicle loading information” in the “9. Technical and consumer information” section.

- Do not exceed maximum roof rack load weight capacity.
