answer 1
The bike is quite close to the car, so it is possible it will hit the back of the car. You would need to use some king of padding to stop this occuring.

With regard to straps. There are no straps provided to stock the bike swinging.

answer 2
Yes it is and no there are not:
On my car a Peugout 106 I have to position the nearside pedal away from the body and wrap the crank and the front Disc with a thick cloth. You need to secure the bike once its on the rack. I bungee the front wheel to the the little towing loop (offside rear) on the car and bungee the front wheel to the frame to stop it swaying.

see my review..

It's a 2008 doblo MPV with a single flat upward opening boot. (not the double door van type)

Couldn't find a doblo on their website but a Citroen Berlingo is very similar and was listed as OK
