My 2007 sport has those black runners on the roof, but they're so nontraditional that I have no idea what cross bars would fit it. Any ideas?
Unless you’re talking about not having any roof rails at all. It’s a sport and I know some sports don’t have roof rails. Not to be confused with Cross bars. Roof rails go from front to rear on the roof, cross bars fit on top of roof rails and go from door to door. Then a basket or rack can go on top of that. So you need all three things. If you don’t have the roof rails then you’re out of luck. Sounds like you may just be talking about the trim not actual roof rails. But I still say please google this stuff it’s not that hard.My 2007 sport has those black runners on the roof, but they're so nontraditional that I have no idea what cross bars would fit it.

No, I shouldn't. I avoid the dealership like the plague. I do all my own maintenance and have kept my 2007 on the road without a single trip to the $tealer$hip.Or at the least you can take it into the dealer and ask them what you need and have them do it. You should be using a dealer for service anyway.
Not everything has to cost $$$, especially some plastic clips and two metal bars... $600+ for one bar? Are you freaking kidding me? Who can afford that? It's a scam.Things cost $$ these days. Don’t cheep out, and yes you should be using dealerships. Cause when you get ready to sell that 07 any new car you get from anyone will only be able to be worked on at a dealer. So treat them right so that they are still around to help you out. Cause you will need it. Cars are built to ware out these days kinda like laptops and smartphones. You may not like it but cars are disposable consumer goods now. Expensive yes!! But disposable also yes.
mad for google thing… I had to do all the work for my car to find out what fit. And without more info you are the only one who knows what you need. Also again don’t cheep out. You do get what you pay for these days.
Sorry it went this way for you. been around for a long time on forums and most of them turn out this way . Funny you brought up cvt, I had to buy the dip stick for like 12 bucks off amazon lolNot everything has to cost $$$, especially some plastic clips and two metal bars... $600+ for one bar? Are you freaking kidding me? Who can afford that? It's a scam.
Like I said. I'll never use the dealership. It's a cash grab scam that I can't afford. So I taught myself how to do all my own maintenance and I've saved myself tens of thousands of dollars. I don't go through cars like socks. I keep them until the wheels fall off, so I don't have to worry about having some dealer's approval attached to my vehicle. Go ask a dealer how much it is to change to CVT fluid in these cars. You know how much it cost me? $40. My old Jeep is going strong and I plan on driving it for well over 200K miles.
