    2017 CX-9 Crossbar confirmation

    Hi all,

    I've seen a few threads here about the CX-9 crossbars and roof racks, but I'm still unsure if the OEM crossbar (0000-8L-N02B) can support a Thule-type rooftop cargo carrier. My CX-9 GT came with the roof rails already installed but no crossbars. I'll need the cargo carrier for a summer trip with the family and don't know if the Mazda OEM crossbars, with their gentle arcs, will correctly support the cargo carrier. Any thoughts on this? Thanks!

    Mine works perfectly fine. I have the oem crossbars and it holds the weight of my Thule cargo box. I’ve put a 100lb kayak on them, I’ve had my three Thule sidearm bike racks with three bikes and have been fine. I wouldn’t push it to much pass 125lb just to be safe. But I have had no issues with them. You might need a leveling adapter for the roof box depending on which on it is because of how the bars curve.

    hi! I know it's a late response. I'm just going to echo what Tom has written. I have a Big Thule Cargo Box & I have no issues with it.
