We installed the cross bars on our Pilot and our Passport ourselves. The Pilot was a lot easier to install, no issues. The Passport was more challenging since it was a tighter fit and actually ended up leaving scratches in the paint on the inside of the rails they attach to as we slid them into place. No big deal, we got some touch up paint and fixed it. I think the Passport cross shouldn't have been as tight as they were, the Pilot cross bars installed so much easier. Definitely worth the cost savings.
