I'm in New Zealand, and I've recently bought a 2013 Outlander PHEV. It's a Japanese import. I took it to a roof rack place to get one a rack fitted. It doesn't come with the front-to-back bars each side to attach the bars to. Instead it has a Rubber liner running front to back each side flush with the roof. Under this are some clamp attachments but no pin holes.

The guy seemed to know his stuff- and after some research told me there are no roof racks that will attach to this available outside of Japan.

Anyone else have this issue? Anyone know how to get some bars that fit this model?

Thx
Fuzzy

If you haven't already, go to a Thule dealer.

Their racks are sold as components and can fit any car.

(one component connect to the car, second is the vertical posts, third is the bars).

(I believe that they also make most integrated racks for new cars too.)

Actually the roof racks sold by Mitsubishi are rebranded Thule racks. But they fit to the roof bars that are standard on 2013/2014 cars -and following years for that matter.
Do you have a Japanese base model with Lancer-type roof attachments by any chance?

Lancer has this type of attachment:

There are mount points under the rubber strip (you can pull it out to see them) but I'm not sure of the right mount kit. I'm in NZ with a Japanese 2013 premium model, interested in getting some roof racks too, not so keen on risking the wrong mounts.

I've got same - fixed points under a strip - I am also in NZ. Mitsubishi dealer mentioned they can get MZ314636 @ NZD$570+GST. I'm still not sure this is the right kit, and don't know whether my accessories would fit... Please share your experience!

Mitsubishi dealer brought in the MZ314636 $570+GST racks in, but these were for different mounts - ones that bolt-on with bolts.

I'm heading to try Whispbars (aka. Yakima) today. Apparently they have some brackets that "might" fit.... let's see how that goes.
