Similar to a previous front page deal from a few years back...here.

Pep Boys has the FloTool RhinoRamps MAX 16000 lbs, 2 Pack [pepboys.com] on sale for $44.98 - 20% (Save 20% with Promo Code MMJ20) = $35.98 + any applicable taxes. Select free store pick up to save on shipping (or free shipping on orders over $50.00), or pay an additional $9.00.

These are great for quick access such as oil changes for those with smaller vehicles...or larger vehicles if you dare. I have a Mini and a Passat that they work great for and haven't personally had any issues.

Details:
Sturdy, durable RhinoRamps allow for reliable and convenient access to the underside of your vehicle. Patented polymer internal support system and wide stance offer excellent weight distribution and unbeatable strength. The innovative CoreTRAC non-skid base helps reduce slippage while the 17 degree incline provides easy use for low clearance vehicles. These portable automotive ramps are great for cars, pick-ups, sport utilities and vans.

Great deal.

These things are worth more than every penny, when you see how much time and effort it saves you.

Simply drive up, no jacking it or using jack stands needed (for safety, you may want to use jack stands, that being said, I dont)

If you don't have a car with wide tires (my car has 255 front (10") and 285 (11") rear), then buy the regular RhinoRamps, or if its under 12k pounds (supports 3k per ramp, 6k per pair... can only use 1 set of ramps at a time

Just make sure to follow directions, and actually have someone watch you drive up the ramps, so that you're centered on the ramps, and don't drive onto (or over) the lip at the end of the ramp plateau.
All the crushed ramps you see pics of on amazon reviews/etc, are because they didn't center/stop properly...or they used them on uneven pavement, like a gravel driveway, dirt, etc.

IF you have a low profile car, you may need to build extensions from wood planks. It's 17 degrees max, my car is 11 degrees. (Under $20 including screws, if you get 2x12's...2x10's if you do the regular Rhinoramps...can get away with 2x8's. All depending on your tire size. Remember that these measurements are when wet, so 10" is more like 9")

I agree with your comments on the failure issues I have seen posted online, but hard to say without being there. That being said, I know of a lot of responsible users who have never had an issue. This is also the reason I use a stronger ramp then I need to. The Flotool RhinoRamp 12,000 lb Ramps, 2-Pack [pepboys.com] is on sale for $31.98 but I think the extra $4.00 is worth it for a little peace of mind.

I didn't realize it was only $4 difference. It's worth that, since it gives the avg narrower tire more leeway, with having the tire within the width of the tire plateau.

The pics online are usually pretty clear, ie, the wheel is past the lip. The ground is gravel, etc. It's off centered.

And the failure is always when the person is driving onto the ramp, not while it's supported already.

Good timing on these. Have a CX5 in need of an oil change and for whatever reason there isn't a traditional lift point on the front of those cars.
