Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.


Hitch looks like decent construction for a class one bolted on perfect. If your car doesnt have the exhaust heat shield it literally takes less than 5 minutes to put the bolts in and torque of them to spec, if you have the tools. Good buy made in the USA and will haul my bikes. Paid extra for the 3 day shipping for the hitch and my new bike rack both shipped out promptly that day 3 days later it was here.


Super easy to install and completely hidden. I'm very happy with this hitch.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Fairly easy to install. Works great. Barely noticeable, when not in use. Doesn't interfere with clearance. Made in USA & reasonably priced. I highly recomme

2012 Chevrolet Cruze

This is the second Curt I have installed on a Cruze. It is a well made product. Installation on my 2012 Cruze ECO was easy and took less than an hour.
As always the service from etrailer was great! Why even look anywhere else!

2013 Chevrolet Cruze

It took me longer to find my torque wrench than it did to install it. Lol
And the video is incredibly helpful


One side was bent ended up bending it back myself

Sorry that you had to do that! This is called flex and happens commonly. Here is more about flex in this help article:

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Great products and really easy to follow installation instructions.

2012 Chevrolet Cruze

2012 Chevy cruze wiring harness hooked up very easily shipping was extremely fast. Also ordered the Reese hitch. Exact fit. Thanks etrailer


Nice product. Fits like a glove with the install time around 15 minutes.Excellent service from etrailer.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

Very easy to install, just like the video showed. installed in about 30 minutes. quality of the welding looks good.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Mounted this on my 2014 Chevy Cruze with RS package. Fits perfect! Tucks in close to rear fascia and is hard to notice unless your kneeling or at a distance. Fast shipping from a Great seller!


Easy installation using existing mount holes. Works great with my trailer and my bike rack too.

2013 Chevrolet Cruze

Quick shipping and well packaged. Great instructions with awesome video available online. Installed in 10 minutes!

2014 Chevrolet Cruze is one of the best internet sellers! I have purchased several trailer hitches, wiring harnesses and other miscellaneous products over the years, and they are always prompt, courteous and accurate with their information. The hitch I recently purchased arrived on time, and everything I needed was in the box. Following the installation instructions I was able to install the hitch in less than 15 minutes, without help. As always, the fit was perfect and the installation went off without a hitch! Sorry, I couldn't resist!!!!

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

Receiver Hitch fit the 2014 Cruze with no modifications. Took about 30 minutes to install. The nifty bolt installation tool (fish wire) was excellent. It is used with a bike carrier and a basket carrier for my brother's fishing gear.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

I purchased the C11282 hitch receiver, hitch bar, and wiring kit that all was perfectly matched to the '14 Chevy Cruze. I already installed the package after watching with the concise on-line video instructions. Great product, instructions, easy installation, and rapid standard shipping.

I considered purchasing the hitch package from a local brick and mortar store but decided on to insure all the parts were matched for my car.

2011 Chevrolet Cruze

2 minute install, very easy

2012 Buick Verano

Great product. I didn't have a lift for the car, so fishing the bolts through was a little tough around the muffler. (There was a brace in the way so the muffler didn't drop down to much on my 2012 Verano.) Once that the bolts were fished through though, it only took about 10 minutes to get it bolted on and it looks great. Will definitely tell people looking to buy a hitch about this.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze

The hitch installed very easily. I used a floor jack to hold it up, after I fished the bolt/plates into the frame. Made it much easier than trying to bench-pressing the hitch while trying to install the nuts... Very well made hitch, will hold my bike rack perfectly!


Etrailers products always exceed my needs. I have used them for my past 3 trailer set ups and will continue to use them. Their customer service is excellent. The trailers hitches are so easy to install too! 10/10 would definitely recommend.

2013 Chevrolet Cruze

The hitch receiver for my Chevy Cruze (C11282) has a nice finish, appears to be very well made, (Nice welds and heavy duty material) is surely a great quality product, which will probably outlast my car! The installation was easy, only took about 20 minutes, and I didn't even have to lower my exhaust as the directions suggested. Very happy with my new hitch receiver and it works great with my bike rack.

2013 Chevrolet Cruze

Service was amazing what i wanted is what i got. would definitely recommend etrailer to anyone, very satisfied with my Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver.


Built will nice, got it fast and was easy to install. Will order again when I need a hitch

Great love it
henry w - 06/30/2015


All the parts were there. The how to video on youtube made it an easy install. I haven't towed anything with it yet. I also bought the wiring harness that fits my car. Again the how to video made it a much easier job. All things considered: great product, quick delivery, easy install. Would recomend highly.


I have had this hitch on the car for a couple of years now and have had 0 issues. Has held up very well. I normally attach a 2 bike rack and have never worried about it falling off. If you are installing yourself make sure to set aside extra time during the install. Installation took 2 hours longer then I had planned.

  • What Will the Curt Hitch # C11282 Look Like Installed on a 2015 Buick Verano
    Yes, the cross tube of the Curt Hitch part # C11282 that you referenced will be hidden when installed on a Verano like your 2015 Buick Verano. Check out the picture I attached that shows this hitch installed on a Verano similar to yours.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Cruze
    For your 2012 Chevy Cruze you would need a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 24882. The Chevy Malibus and Cruzes are different enough vehicles that a hitch from one would not fit the other. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Will Magna-Flow Aftermarket Exhaust Tips Affect Hitch Fit on 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
    I do not see any fits for Magna-Flow complete aftermarket exhaust systems offered for your 2012 Chevrolet Cruze so I presume you are referring only to exhaust tips rather than a complete aftermarket exhaust system. The installation of any of the hitch receivers offered for your vehicle should be unaffected by the exhaust tips installed on your Cruze. Many vehicles require for hitch installation temporary lowering of the exhaust to provide better access to the hitch connection points on...

All are light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I types that can carry up to 2 bikes (no matter what the bike rack's capacity is). All will install in an essentially identical manner since they all will use the same mounting points on your Cruze's frame. The link provided will show you all three.

  • Which Hitch for 2014 Chevy Cruze Has Best Ground Clearance
    The Curt hitch part # C11282 has the ground clearance advantage by 3/4 of an inch. When we installed it on a 2014 Chevy Cruze we found that from the top of the hitch opening to the ground measured 10-3/4 inches and with the Draw Tite part # 24882 the same dimensions was 10 inches.

We'll use that dimension when recommending a cargo carrier that will work for you. I have attached a helpful article that explains how this measurement is taken.

    The Curt Hitch part # C11282 that you referenced comes with everything needed to install the hitch on your 2013 Chevy Cruze. It comes with 4 square hole spacers, 4 carriage bolts, 4 flange nuts and a 7/16 inch pull wire. I attached installation instructions plus an install video for you to check out also. This hitch comes with a ball mount and ball plus a pin and clip, so to complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the Curt Wiring Harness part # C56214.

    The Curt # C11282 for gas models of the Chevy Cruze and # C11371 for diesel models of the Chevy Cruze are identical in the mounting locations. The difference is in the drop of the # C11371 for diesel models is 5-1/4 inches for exhaust clearance compared to the drop of the # C11282 being 3.88 inches from the mount to the top of the receiver tube according to my contact at Curt.

  • Bike Rack Clearance Provided by Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 Installed on 2013 Chevy Cruze
    When we installed the Curt # C11282 and the Draw-Tite # 24882 Class I hitches on a 2013 Chevy Cruze, we found that the Curt hitch had a 6-1/4 inch measurement from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. The Draw-Tite was recessed so that the dimension was 3-3/4 inches. To determine if your rack will be compatible, simply measure from the hitch pin hole to the closest obstruction on the rack, be it the upright, the foot of the rack or in the case of a platform...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 on 2012 Chevy Cruze with RS Package
    According to Curt Manufacturing, the # C11282 is compatible with all models of the Chevy Cruze, including those equipped with the RS package. If you will be using the hitch for a bike rack or a cargo carrier, keep in mind that the warranty requirements of the hitch require that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 is required. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24882 has no such requirement, which is why I would recommend it over the Curt model. I have linked you to installation instructions...

With this hitch you can install a Class I rated hitch mounted bike rack, but you will also need to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2013 Chevy Cruze
    The price difference and the name of the hitches are due to different manufacturers. Since both the Curt option, part # C11282, and the Draw-Tite option, part # 24882, are 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers with a 200 lbs Tongue Weight capacity and 2,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight Capacity they are pretty much the same hitch. I do recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sport Frame # 24882 though (the "Sport" is just part of the name of the hitch) because the Curt warranty requires that a Support...

  • Curt or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Buick Verano
    Function wise the Draw Tite part # 24882 is the winner for your 2013 Buick Verano. The reason I say that is that the Curt you mentioned requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack and the Draw Tite does not. So it is the winner in my opinion.

In fact, we have a customer review that was sent in where they installed the Draw-Tite hitch on their ECO model and it took them about 30 minutes! Out of both options I recommend using the Curt hitch # C11282 for your application. Although you need to use a Support Strap # 18050 for all non-trailer loads, it does not have a weld stop in the hitch...

    There are some subtle differences between Curt trailer hitches # C11282 and # C11425. The receiver is longer on # C11425 and they don't have all the same vehicle fits.

I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Curt Wiring Harness # C56288.
