I already bought one to my cr-v. So, i plan to use this with jack stands.
I have the old one from different brand from CT. But, i let it in snow in backyard ( i forgot to bring it in) .Maybe i cannot use it anymore?

Thanks OP. Got one last night and change the oil in my car today using them. It takes some effect to get car on but they are very stable. I did put two jack stands there to make myself feel safer:)

Like an earlier poster said I also jam them up against the tires and give them a good tap with my rubber mallet to secure them.

It's the UV rays from the sun that will destroy plastic and make it brittle, not snow or water. If they haven't been sitting out there all year, they should be fine, just give your vehicle a good shake before you get under once on the ramps. If you have jack stands it wouldn't hurt to place them under there just in case, but don't forget to remove them before you try to drive off the ramp...

Looking at the reviews on Amazon, I'd never trust my life to some plastic.
Lots of plastic things being used in hospitals to keep folks from dying . Lots of plastic clips in your vehicle holding sensors etc that keep you alive when driving down the highway at 100kmph or more.
It's all about proper application of the material.
All this " never trust my life to plastic" talk is getting old.
100 years ago, they'd never trust their life to those 4 wheeled death traps they call cars and their mule was much safer. To each his own.

For those that live near the border, Home Depot (US) has them for $39.97 regular price. My friend just picked a set up today (in store)

As for durability, I would never leave anything plastic outside year round and expect the plastic to hold up over the year. LOL. I have an original set of Rhino Ramps from 10 years ago (garage kept) and they are still fine. There is a small rubber pad on the bottom side that is suppose to help with the slippage but they can still move if you don't have the right angle when the tires approach them or run up to them too fast. My car is lowered and I use a 2x4 in front to get onto the ramps easier. Other than that, no problems what so ever.

Do you have PVC window frames? How are they holding up to sub zero temperatures and UV exposure, LOL.

There are many different plastics. You can't really make generalized comments that anything plastic won't survive outside.

GTEH!
I've been using these "plastic" rhino ramps, from a different manufacturer sold at CT, for 10 years now for many oil changes and have had no issues. *shrugs*

Scepter Pro Ramps are on sale for $49.99 at Part Source.

Although they're rated for 12,000 lbs vs. Rhino's 16,000 lbs.

I think even PA got their ramps on sale.

Question for those using the ramps for fluid changes - how do you get to the full drainage since the vehicle is not level, or it just does not matter?

Both vehicles that I currently change the oil on have the drain plug at the rear side of the oil pan so I think that having the front end raised up helps get more of the oil out.

Depends on where your drain is located.
