Well designed and installation worked perfectly, as shown in the instructions. Instruction clarity could be improved by providing them in color.
Packaging is a failure! Box was received with a big hole in the side and the hitch was sticking out of the box about two feet. Luckily there was no damage to the hitch.

It has been working as intended, I carry all my 3 bicycles on the trailer hitch with a thule bike rack.



by:
2014 Ford Focus

Fairly easy to install, even by myself. Yup, no help needed. I used jack stands to hold the hitch, and the car was only about 3" off the ground. [I have ramps made from 2X lumber.] It worked well. The only issue was a slight misalignment when initially mounting the hitch with M8 bolts to mark the holes for drilling the 15/32 hole. I had to use a drift pin to get the last M8 bolt in. It was only off by a hair, it was no big deal.
It was very easy to mark & drill the 15/32 holes. The fish wire method works great to get the spacers & carriage bolts fished in. Only a small amount needed to be ground around the access hole. I was a bit concerned about pushing the carriage bolts back through the holes when raising the hitch again. But it was no problem, hitch went in easily.
Torqued all the fasteners and double checked them again. All-in-all it took about 90 minutes doing it alone. I'm sure it could have taken about half the time with help. Shipping was fast and free. I plan to use the hitch with a bike rack, not towing.

Easy to install on a 2012 Ford Focus. Everything was included. Took about 2 hours total. After one year, still working great.

Easy installation, excellent mounting instructions, perfect fit, came with all attaching hardware, looks great. I also bought wiring kit, easy installation, great mounting instructions, perfect fit, also came with all attaching hardware, works perfectly! Excellent product, great price, super fast shipping, wonderful communications!

Fast delivery, and a fairly easy installation. The product is very well engineered and the welds are great. I towed a 1500 pound trailer for over 600 miles, and had no issues whatsoever. Thanks for a reasonably priced, high quality product!



by:

Great product. Simple instructions. I drilled 2 holes and easily secured with 6 fasteners. Solid mounting and looks clean.

Your products I purchased from you were a great fit and great product. Ive told people about your products and will continue to do business with you.

Just finished installing the hitch receiver and it was really simple and it looks great!



by:

Seems like it's going to work great upon installation. Simple to mount and attach bike rack to. Highly recommend.



by:

Excellent solid product. Clear installation instructions, which went relatively smoothly. I'm a relative novice, although handy, and took a little over an hour.



by:
2012 Ford Focus

My hitch and wiring adapter arrived promptly and in good condition. The installation of the hitch went smoothly and with no unexpected surprises. The installation of the wiring adapter was easier than the instructiions indicated, as there was a twelve volt power source right next to the driver side tail light assembly, eliminating the need to run a power wire to the battery in the front of the car. This was an install on a 2012 Ford Focus 5 door

thanks for writing the review. Were there mounting holes already, or did you have to drill them?Thanks!

Patrick B.

6/18/2013

There are a total of 6 attachment points. 4 of them are pre-existing weld nuts in the frame that the hardware just threads into. There will be one hole, on each frame rail, that will need to be drilled. Check out the instructions link on the page for more information on the drilling, specifically Step 2.

To be honest it has not been used yet I bought it for a bike rack and a little bit of rear end collision protection. She's been ill and drives on I70 almost every day.No rust on it yet!



by:

This company is terrible. I recently ordered a tow hitch from them and after two weeks it still was not shipped. I called them and they said they didn’t ship my hitch because it was behind too much other stuff in their warehouse and I would have to wait until it was more accessible. Total B.S. I will never order anything from this company ever again.

Oh no, Im sorry for your frustrating experience with etrailer. It sounds like you caught us during our warehouse expansion. We have since doubled our warehouse space to avoid this type of situation.

not installed yet( had shoulder replacement surgery )



by:

The receiver was straightforward to install. Often aftermarket products don't even fit the vehicle it was designed for, no a problem here. I would recommend some mechanical inclination for the installer, or atleast some thoughtful research and a bit of confidence. Be sure to read the description, directions, and know what your vehicle is capable of. It was installed with just one person. Considering I have a compact car, I need to be mindful of loading/weight of my trailer (it is a small 3.5'x5') and speed/distance traveled, but it has taken the place of a truck for 95% of my needs. Customer service is very comprehensive-- they even send you a one year follow-up. It is everything that it promises to be. Highly recommend.



by:

Fits my make and model. Ford Focus 18’. Feels snug and I’ve had no issues using it with my bike hitch. The torque spec are completely wrong and I sheared a bolt during installation using a torque wrench… so ignore the torque specs and just tighten till it feels secure.



by:
2018 Ford Focus

Bought this so i could pull a U-Haul with my ford focus and move across the country. I never had any issues, i highly recommend this hitch



by:
2015 Ford Fusion

Very fast delivery. I self installed using the instructions furnished and the very informative online video. I am 80 years old and did the installation alone using ramps to get under my car. Since I have had two rotator cuff surgeries, I needed help to lift the hitch into place. I used a floor jack and balanced the hitch on the lift plate of the jack and secured it with a block of wood and bungee cord to secure it. Every thing went well and the hitch looks great. This is the second hitch I have installed using ETRAILER instructions. My previous hitch was for a 2015 Ford Fusion and it also worked as expected. I enjoy dealing with ETRAILER.

Dodge Grand Caravan

I am very pleased with the hitch and ease of installation. To date, I have installed hitches on 5 vehicles for myself, my wife and daughter, including a Dodge pick-up and Caravan, Nissan Versa, Dodge Dart, and now this Ford Focus. We use the hitches mostly for hitch-mounted bike racks. Installing this hitch on my Ford Focus was one of the easier installations. The only problem I encountered was the bolt head was just slightly too big in diameter to fit into the access hole on the vehicle frame, so I had to grind about 1/16 inch off one side of the bolt head with a bench grinder to enable it to fit through the access hole. I have purchased all of these hitches from etrailer.com and I have always been 100% satisfied with their product, free delivery, and installation instructions. I wouldn't buy a trailer hitch anywhere else!



by:

your service was excellent. I called in my order as i did not have a secure internet site to give credit card info. right from first contact, to shipping to actually receiving my order everything was as stated it would be. I knew exactly what day the order was to arrive. I live in Canada and the same parts would have cost me more than double this amount. With price, free shipping and excellent service. What more could you ask for. I have and will keeping letting friends know what a great experience this was
. A big thanks to Steven C for all your help.

the trailer hitch and wiring hasrness worked perfectly. it looked like it was factory installed. we have since sold that vehicle.



by:
2015 Ford Focus

I was impressed with how easy it was to install. It really did only take 20 minutes. I did have a dremel to enlarge the hole and I good uni bit. I am using the hitch for my bike rack and it is working great. Please consider a 2 in receiver option so I have more bike rack choices. I bought this hitch cause it was made in the USA. Thanks Curt for building your products here!



by:

Hitch was well constructed and finished.
Installation
was quick and easy because everything fit perfectly. It will be used for pulling a small trailer, mounting a bike rack and mounting a step with light mainly for appearance when not towing or packing bikes.



by:

Received hitch sooner than expected. Plan on using it for a cargo hauler attachment. Phone and email response times were fast and helpful. I would definitely do business with etrailer again!
I only wish I would have researched the site a little better. I would have purchased the Draw-tight vs the Curtis hitch as I intend to have around the 200# tongue weight and will need to use a strap to help support the cargo.



by:
2012 Ford Focus

Directions that were supplied are OK but it was the YouTube video that made the installation much easier. I installed this hitch by myself using ramps. It would have been much easier with another set of hands but I just used blocks of wood to hold up one side while I worked on the other side. Highly recommend you look at the video first.



by:
Ford Focus

Still holds up great after a year (and a Michigan winter). I only use the hitch on my Ford Focus for a bike rack. Super easy to install. No special equipment required. Maybe some patience if you don't have floor jacks.

See what our Experts say about this CURT Trailer Hitch

  • Does the Curt Class I Hitch for 2013 Ford Focus Have Weld Stop Built into the Hitch Opening
    Actually the Curt Class I hitches do not have the weld stop in the hitch tubes to prevent Class II only accessories from being used. It's not a well-known feature we advertise as the absence of it does not mean you can use a Class II only accessory. If you are wanting to use a Class II only accessory in this hitch I can't recommend it, but I can say that the hitch does not have the weld stop.

  • How Easy is it to Install a Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2012 Ford Focus
    A trailer hitch receiver for your 2012 Ford Focus, like the Curt # C11158, is a pretty straightforward install for someone with the correct tools. Especially, if they're somewhat mechanically inclined and are using a lift. The instructions are included with the hitch (I've also linked them on this page if you want to look at them), and I've also linked a video from when installed the Curt on a Focus.

  • Ground Clearance When Installing Curt C11158 Trailer Hitch on 2018 Ford Focus
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11158 is going to sit right up against the bottom of the bumper fascia on your 2018 Ford Focus hatchback so it's not going to affect ground clearance too much. This Class I hitch features a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds and a towing weight limit of 2,000 pounds. I highly recommend also checking your copy of the owner's manual to verify the vehicle's limits, as you will need to adhere to those if they are lower. I have attached an installation...

  • Is There a Towing Capacity for the 2012 Ford Focus
    I tried looking up the towing capacities of a 2012 Ford Focus and wasn't able to find any information. This leads me to believe that Ford does not want you to tow with this vehicle. The Curt Hitch part # C11158 that you referenced would be better off used for hitch accessories like bike racks or cargo carriers. You should note that all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps. Failure to properly support these loads will...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Ford Focus Platinum Sedan
    The best option for a trailer hitch for your 2013 Ford Focus Platinum Sedan would be the Curt hitch part # C11158 which is a confirmed fit. Only the hitch opening would be visible underneath the rear fascia of the vehicle which is about as hidden as it's going to get. I like this hitch over the Curt option because it does not require a stabilizer strap when you carry a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Curt hitch does.

  • What Hitch and Wiring Harness Will Fit 2013 Ford Focus Towing a Trailer With 2 Motorcycles
    Although the Curt # C11158 is a fit for your 2013 Ford Focus, it is not to be used for towing. It can only be used for either a bike rack or cargo carrier. On page 217 of the 2013 Ford Focus owner's manual Ford cautions to never tow a trailer with this vehicle. Your vehicle is not equipped to tow and no towing packages are available. We cannot make any recommendations that would contradict what Ford states about the towing capabilities of any vehicle.

  • Bike Rack Weight Capacity for Curt Hitch that Fits 2018 Ford Focus
    The Curt hitch part # C11158 that fits your 2018 Ford Focus has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs which means between the weight of your bike and bike rack you'd be limited to 200 lbs. So 175 lbs like what you mentioned having between the bike and bike rack would be just fine.

  • Can a 2 Inch Cargo Carrier Be Used on a 2017 Ford Focus
    I do have options for you, but they currently only offer a 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver for your 2017 Ford Focus. For this, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11158 which is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. In order to use a cargo carrier with a 2" shank you would also need an adapter like part # HTAD. However, using an adapter will reduce your hitch's weight capacity by 50 percent.

  • Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Ford Focus
    We have a solution for a cargo carrier that would support a 50 lb power chair but you would need to have a trailer hitch installed first like the part # C11158 which is confirmed to fit your vehicle. Then for a cargo carrier the part # C18110 would easily support the weight of the chair. I attached a review video for the chair on a similar Focus as yours as well.

  • What is the Difference Between a Class I and Class II Hitch?
    Structurally, a class II trailer hitch is designed to hold a bit more weight than a class I. This is because the materials that compose a class II hitch are stronger. All class I and class II hitches have the same 1-1/4 inch receiver opening which are compatible with 1-1/4 inch accessories. I went ahead and attached a diagram that shows the typical weight capacity differences between class I and class II hitches. For your 2018 Ford Focus Sedan, we only carry class I hitches.

This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver so you will need a Class I compatible cargo carrier, and the best option for that is the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18145 because it offers a large amount of space inside the carrier to carry cargo, with nearly four feet of length and a foot and a half of width,...
