    Thanks for taking the time to post your message:

    The new rails seem more durable...

    I am guessing you work at Subaru and this is hands-on information. Valuable!

    I have a 2015 Outback 3.6R that is starting to exhibit this problem. I am using the roof rails heavily, and needed to build my own steel rails as shown here (they bolt down into the Subaru tie-down plates):

    http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/...ml#post2938810

    I have a >3000 km trip upcoming, and the rack will be full. Since the "old" Subaru rack *seems* to be strong enough for the time being, I have to decide between:
    a) Get the new roof rails now, and hope they are installed properly, and don't create new problems (e.g. squeaks from the headliner reinstallation)
    b) Do the trip with what I have now because if it ain't broke, don't fix it (yet)

    May I ask, what you would do?

    Regards,
