2016 Chevrolet Volt

As usual, Curt delivered a product that fit perfectly. This is the third hitch I've purchased from them and all three have been installed on different vehicle platforms. 4 star review would be 5, save for the point made below.

One area I wish they'd either have taken into consideration when designing the hitch, or provided a work around for. The thickness of the flange creates a gap when reinstalling the exhaust hanger bracket. I've attached pictures. one shows the gap and the other shows it 'filled' with 4 washers. Without the washers it is impossible to completely tighten the hardware and any attempt to do so will bend the bracket, potentially creating a failure point from vibration down the road. 40 cents at Lowe's fixed the problem, but including the washers and adding to the instructions would be a great step to take - are you listening ETrailer review readers? ;)

I've used the hitch to receive a cargo hauler, and 2" ball for towing our trailer. Very happy with the product and would recommend it to anyone in the market.

2017 Chevrolet Volt

Super easy to install. The trailer wiring definitely takes longer than the hitch does. I would recommend getting a right angle drill adapter for taking the torx screws out of the wheel well area. This allows you to not have to remove either of the tires. The shipping box was pretty beat up and the hitch was sticking through in multiple places. I didn't see anything that got bent though. One additional thought, they (Curt) should probably include some washers or some sort of spacer to place between the muffler bracket and nut after installing the hitch. Without it there is a fairly large gap.

2016 Chevrolet Volt

Super easy installation

2018 Chevrolet Volt

Was very easy dealing with your company.


good price


The product was delivered quickly and was quality built. The instructions were easy to follow and the included torque specs were appreciated.

However, the only thing I would like to see included in this kit are washers or another type of spacer to fit in-between the space between the exhaust bracket and the frame of the car. There is a space left the thickness of the new hitch bracket that the original aluminum bumper beam bends around as you tighten down the M8 exhaust bolts upon re-instillation. There are pictures another customer posted that show this issue. Otherwise a very easy install.

The underbody panel on the car also does not need to be taken off fully. Only the back row of M7 screws and Torx screws in the wheel wells need to be removed. When you put on the new hitch bracket you can just use the aviation shears and cut around the perimeter of the hitch in the fabric. Saves a little time. Very happy with this hitch.

2006 Volvo S40

Excellent receiver, second one i have purchased. Does take some time to install but works well after installation. Used primarily to carry bikes. Hitch went thru the carton., somewhat lose inside the box, there needs to be more protection for the receiver tube, it doesn't appear to be damaged.

2017 Chevrolet Volt

Followed the instructions and turned out great. WARNING the video does not so what to tighten bolts back down to so I strongly recommend using the pdf instructions.

Chevrolet Volt

Very quick delivery, the product met the description - this hitch works perfectly for our bike rack on our Chevy Volt. I'm a very happy customer.


Just as advertised. Plenty of installation video. Almost as easy as it looked! [Thumbs Up]

2019 Chevrolet Volt

Fit great

  • Getting Holes To Line Up When Installing Trailer Hitch On 2017 Chevrolet Volt
    When a trailer hitch is installed on a vehicle and you find that the holes are sometimes not perfectly lined up and the hitch needs to be adjusted to get everything to fit. Our installers will use a small tool that they insert in the mounting hole on the hitch and in the mating hole of the vehicle frame and move the hitch so that bolts can be inserted. Some are tougher than others. This is a common practice and should cause you no issues with the performance of the trailer hitch as long...

  • Comparing Draw-Tite and Curt Trailer Hitch on 2017 Chevy Volt
    I went to the warehouse to take a measurement, and the stop tab depth on the Draw-Tite # 24947 is four inches from the front of the receiver, so there should not be an issue with insertion depth on your 1UP USA bike rack. The reason for that tab is because like the Curt # C11436, the Draw-Tite is a Class I hitch, and the tab is designed to prevent an accessory from being used unless it is Class I rated. In terms of measurements the hitches do offer slightly different ground clearances;...

  • Best Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2019 Chevy Volt
    I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" part # 24947. Of the options this hitch has the most bang for the buck. It is rated for 200 lbs of tongue weight and 2000 lbs of gross trailer weight. Be sue to check your owners manual though to see what your volt is rated for and don't exceed that. It also doesn't require the use of a stabilization strap like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" part # C11436 does...

  • Can Curt Stabilization Strap 18050 Be Attached To 2018 Chevy Volt In A Way That Does Not Damage Car?
    Absolutely! We have reached out to Curt about this in the past and the Curt Stabilization Strap # 18050 can be wrapped around the bike rack and then attached to the safety chain loops. This will allow you to secure your bike rack to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11436 you were looking at for your 2018 Chevrolet Volt. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Is 18050 Support Strap Needed to Carry Bike Rack on 2018 Chevy Volt Using Curt C11436 Class I Hitch
    I can absolutely help clear that up for you. At one point Curt stated that in order to retain warranty coverage for their hitches, the # 18050 support strap needed to be used for non-trailer loads. Approximately 4 or 5 years ago, they changed their stance on this and no longer require the strap be used, although this is still shown on some of the hitch install instruction sheets that haven't been updated since this policy changed. Typically, the strap would attach to the vehicle where...

  • Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack for a 2017 Chevy Volt
    If you are having a 1-1/4 inch hitch installed on your 2017 Chevrolet Volt, such as the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C11436, there is a Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack, # SH12G, which is a fit on 1-1/4 inch hitches. This rack will secure a pair of bikes via ratcheting hooks on the front wheels and ratcheting straps on the back wheels. It also tilts for access to your rear cargo area and folds up for rear storage. I have included links to a video review of this product, as well...

  • Is Vehicle License Plate Not Visible if Receiver of EcoHitch 306-X7338 is Used on 2017 Chevy Volt
    The license plate bracket included with the # 306-X7338 hitch would flip upward which would indeed make the plate not viewable from the rear. This means that you might need to remove the license plate and mount it to the rear of the hitch mounted accessory so it's visible. If you'd prefer not to deal with that, you could use a standard hitch like the Curt Class I, part # C11436. When installed, the only portion of the hitch that would be visible is the receiver tube and the safety chain...

  • Hitch and Hitch Bike Rack Compatibility on 2017 Chevy Volt
    I checked your order and the Curt Class I hitch # C11436 is a confirmed fit on your 2017 Chevy Volt. This hitch will be ideal for using the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # SH12P. You will need to use the Curt support strap # 18050 or a similar item to help stabilize the rack's weight on the car. This is a Curt warranty requirement.

  • Best Hitch for Carrying Bike Rack on 2019 Chevy Volt
    The best hitch will depend on which bike rack you're using. If you have a rack compatible with a 1-1/4 inch hitch, you'll want to use the Curt # C11436 Class I hitch. If your rack is compatible with a 2 inch receiver, you'll want to use the EcoHitch # 306-X7338. Both hitches install so that the crossbar is hidden behind the bumper for a clean, factory-installed appearance. I've linked to installation videos for both hitches for you to check out.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Chevy Volt
    I actually have 2 different recommendations and it all boils down to what you want it to look like on your 2019 Chevy Volt. The Class I Curt Trailer Hitch # C11436 is one of the options and it displays the 1-1/4" receiver beneath your rear bumper, but it's only the receiver. The crosstube (that you are worried about) is actually hidden behind the bumper beam. The top of the receiver sits about 11" above the ground when we installed it on a 2018 Volt as you can see in the attached installation...

  • Bike Rack Compatibility with 2017 Chevy Volt
    If you don't already have a trailer hitch for your 2017 Chevy Volt, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class I # 24947 which is a custom fit. This hitch will have a measurement of 5-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of the bumper. That same measurement is 5-1/4 inches when using the Curt # C11436 which is also a fit for your vehicle. That hitch however requires stabilization strap # 18050 for a bike rack. If you want a clamp...

  • Comparing Weight of EcoHitch, Curt, and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for 2019 Chevrolet Volt
    The EcoHitch # 306-X7338 weighs 37 lbs, Curt # C11436 weighs 26 lbs, and the Draw-Tite # 24947 weighs 21 lbs. The EcoHitch Invisi Trailer Hitch Receiver uses a flip-up license plate kit since the hitch installs behind your license plate. This does mean that you will not have a visible rear license plate with your bike rack installed. Typically your license plate would be obscured with the bike rack on the back regardless of the hitch. If you're worried about the legality of the plate not...
