with tower/clip racks on Civics. Not sure why that could be, I've had no problems with Yakimas on Accords from '90 through 2000 to '08.
Concerned about that, I connect my front bar to the rear bar to make it one unit.
Hate to worry you more, but considering the reports, thought I should raise the issue.
If I had to guess, I would think boat motion on the racks shifts one of the crossbars until the clips no longer hold the crossbar down firmly. Might be an error in following mounting instructions.
