    I’ve found the Toyota part number for their rack kit, PW301-47005, but it says it fits 2016-17 models. Anyone know if it will also fit Gen 3’s?

    Great forum!!

    Judging just from images, I'd say no:

    It has a connection point on a curve, which very likely is unique to fourth gen. I would just look for a generic, one-size-fit's-all roof rack.

    Thanks Mendel. If no one here pops in with one, I think I'll try a few Toyota dealer parts departments on the chance someone is familiar with it. Thing is I can't find a part number for a 2012. Jut need to try a little harder I guess..

    Yes, apparently it’s made by Thule and cost about 50% less. So, high quality, low price.
