Clutch!!!! Ordered from this website twice and delivery was perfect, it’s understandable when there is delays due to COVID but honestly, etrailer.com has always came through when I needed. Just to put this particular transaction into prospective, I arrived at [towing store] (bless their hearts) for my scheduled appointment and found that they didn’t have any hitches for my vehicle in stock but had already placed some on back order. Not sure if it was etrailer or one of your competitors but mine and theirs came in at the same day. Just in time for my planned trip. I had a small window to decide how I was going to move my fishing equipment for my move/fishing vacation because that’s just how we operate in the military sometimes. I can’t believe I drove 897 miles using this hitch assembled with a 5x8 trailer with approximately 500+lbs of fishing equipment with my 2017 Honda Accord sedan. It was flawless. I would imagine it’s not recommended to drive over a certain speed limit but let’s just say I wouldn’t recommend it either..again flawless, it was raining too by the way. Overall I am satisfied with my first trip and will be looking forward to utilizing this for my kayak. It would be excellent to be able to pull up at the boat ramp in a small Honda Accord and launch close to the boat ramp fully rigged for a in/out scenario. That is my goal.

After owning this hitch for a year the hitch has held my bikes steady and secure(paired with a kuat 2 bike beta rack). Fit and finish is still the same as when I first got it installed. Since the car/hitch is somewhat low, with the rack attached, the handle of the kuat will sometimes hit the ground when the incline is high enough (from parking garage to the street).

Although the construction of the hitch is very good there is a problem with the way its constructed with respect to the welding of the hitch to the round bar to the flat mounting flanges. I don''t know if a fixture is used in the process and if there, is then it needs to be evaluated. After install it I used a hitch with an 8" length and found the bar was not level to the car. It pointed in a downward direction. I had to shim the back of the mounting flange to achieve some degree of levelness where the hitch goes. Before I did that I did check with a level to see if the car mounting surface was level to the floor and it was. After verifying that, I started with a machinist wedge and inserted it until I got a level reading. It turned out I had to shim both side 1/4". I bought several hitches from eTrailer in the past but they were made of square tubing and I had no problems. They still have the best around and will continue to buy from them.

The Hitch was easy to install with the exception of lowering the exhaust, which was hard for me to do, and the instructions of how to do it were not that clear. The Hitch also works as it is supposed to, however I am not sure if the stabilization strap helps, because my rack seems to sway more with the strap. I am also worried the strap could damage my trunk lid, but I guess it shouldn't.


Comments
Im looking to buy the same car you have and need to carry two bikes. Do you have a lot of sway when bikes are mounted?

Comments
I do carry 2 bikes sometimes and the only sway is due to my rack not being the sturdiest when it is pulled tight with the strap. but the sway is minimal, maybe 1/2-1 inch

First I would like to say that etrailer.com was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I was notified of the progress of my order through several emails and was never left wondering when my order would arrive. The Curt hitch is well made and intelligently packaged to prevent damage. I watched the installation video on the etrailer.com website before I ordered so I knew what to expect. The installation was child's play; it took less than an hour. The hitch is being used the mount a 3 bike rack. The total weight of the rack and bikes is about 100 pounds. The hitch is rock solid and has no trouble at all supporting this load. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and installation.

Easy install on my 17’ accord sport. Fishing the bolts is easier than you’d think but make sure you put them through the rear most holes. There is one close to the access hole but it’s too far away to mount the hitch and the diagram only shows one hole not 2.

Easy install. Thanks for the video. I watched the video and read the directions, could not have been better. Right down to cutting the heat shield, just use the dimensions shown and you will be good. Took about 45 minutes to install, taking my time, and that includes jacking the rear and letting it down. Thanks etrailer again for another hitch and the support that comes with it. Saved $280 doing myself, including the harness, over what xhaul. wanted.

Great product - highly recommended. I purchased this one for a 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring. The Touring/Hybrid comes with an additional cover that hides the driver side frame where the hitch mounts. I removed the plastic cover, took some basic measurements, and cut it to allow access for the hitch to be bolted in. I then reinstalled the plastic cover before installing the hitch. From there, just follow the standard instructions. I had to make the modification to the exhaust heat shield as depicted in the included instructions. Everything else was straight-forward. I've installed and used this same hitch on another Accord, so I know it is bullet-proof.

Worked as described, installation steps and video were very helpful and on point (including the trimming of the small metal piece for the Honda Accord). Use it almost every weekend to carry two bikes during the summer biking season.

This product fit onto my 2015 Honda Accord and is exactly what I expected. Though I haven't really put it to the test yet, it seems sturdy and capable of doing it's job. I will say I think the instuctions could be better (although it really is a pretty simple job), and I'd have also preferred if the fishing wires had been a few inches longer (they were still definitely adequate, just not any extra slack to work with which is difficult when working over the muffler) and I did run into an issue with those fishing wires that others may want to be aware of. Once you screw the bolts into the spiral end of the fishing wire you can not unscrew them! Do not test if they fit, do not put them in before you've fished the wire through, and be careful because if you screw them even one thread too far it will cause the wire to cross over the bottom threads, preventing the screw from being able to fit through the mounting hole. I had to jump the wire back down the bolt one coil/thread at a time for one and used thread to pull the other through because I ruined the other one trying to get it back off the bolt. Hopefully this helps someone else avoid these silly issues. If used properly, I'm sure those fish wires are a really great tool.

The hitch was in great condition when it arrived. I install Hitch on my new 2017 Honda Accord. I had no problems installing it, I watched your video, read the instruction. I was about 2.5 hours from beginning to finish using a floor jack and two jack stands. I had no assistance installing the hitch. I took a couple of breaks, but at 66 years young it was easy. This was my second car I have installed a etrailer hitch on. Six years ago I put a etrailer hitch on a 2010 VW Jetta. The instruction have been excellent each time.

Great, I have used it at least once a month with my Cargo carrier, finish still looks like new.

I was able to install this in 1 hour and 15 minutes. Installation video and heat shield cutting instructions were on point. The only challenging part was undoing and putting back the muffler hockey puck holders. Make sure to wd-40 before you even attempt to pull those rubber things off. Anyways, I was determined and all turned out very good. In lew of raising the car, I was able to park it on an inclined driveway and had plenty of room to work with. I just used a sturdy box to hold up the muffler, no muffler strap necessary. Plus, when the car is lower to the ground, it helped lifting the thing a tad bit easier, being that I was solo on a this project. This thing had some heft to it. Just make sure you have all the tools in the instructions readily available. Don’t forget a sharpie so you can trace out the cutting line on the heat shield. Another good thing I found out is that you can occasionally check the tightness on the nuts cause they’re exposed convenient for easy future access. I foresee many years of confident service from this bad boy.

Received my hitch in the mail yesterday. Installed in about one hour by myself in my driveway. Directions were easy to understand and informative. I also referred to the video for my car on your website for additional help. The hitch works excellent with my bike rack. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase! The hitch is extremely sturdy and well built. I would highly recommend this hitch to anyone in search of a good quality item.

I have needed a trailer hitch on my Honda Accord for years but never did because of the cost. When I found the hitch from trailer with a great sale I ordered immediately. The hitch from Curt is an exact match for my car and the quality is remarkable. I or see ordered on Monday and received it Wednesday. The packing for the hitch was well done with no damage. My installer said how easy it went on. I am really impressed with the value and quality the retailer provides.

Easy to install, size is prefect. When I opened package, I noticed lots of deep scratches and a few spots that was chipped on the hitch. The scratches I’m not worried about but the chipped spots since it’s past the clear coat and down to the metal. That will cause it to rust. It looks like this was a returned item based on what I saw.

Installed on a 2015 Accord Sport with Manual transmission to tow a trailer that holds my street motorcycle. I use it to tow my trailer for hundreds of miles to get my motorcycle to destinations with lots of curvy roads. The hitch is doing a wonderful job and this is my second one from Etrailer.com therefore I would highly recommend both the hitch and Etrailer.com. P.S.

    The size of the install bolts that secure the Curt hitch part # C11681 to the rear of your 2015 Honda Accord are 7/16-14 x 1 1/4.

  • Trailer Hitch, Hitch-Mount, and Trunk Mount Bike Racks for a 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
    We have a lot of great hitch mounted bike rack options if you are looking to add a hitch to your 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid.

For a bike rack you will be limited to 2 bikes maximum because the hitches for the vehicle are Class I hitches. I recommend going with a light weight bike rack to reduce the...

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2013 Honda Accord Sedan V6

  • Draw-Tite vs Curt Hitch for a 2013 Honda Accord
    For carrying a bike rack the biggest advantage that the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24899 has over the Curt Hitch # C11681 is that it does not require the use of a stabilizing strap when carrying a non-supported load such as a bike rack. If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need a Curt Stabilizing Strap # 18050 to secure the rack.
