Will a CURT Trailer Hitch Fit a 2012 Kia Sorento SX with Single Exhaust


I have the V6 with single exhaust on the right side. Will this hitch work without any modifications to the vehicle? I read some other comments where it will not fit on the 2011 dual exhaust models and want to make sure I dont run into any problems.

The CURT Trailer Hitch # C13073, is designed to fit on your 2012 Kia Sorento SX since it has single exhaust, with only minor heat shield modification required under the vehicle. For the hitch to install properly, the heat shield will need to be cut and reinstalled. You will remove about 8 inches from the heat shield and you can use aviator shears to trim it. I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video showing a typical installation for you.

If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit, # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 balls, a hitch pin with clip, and a carrying bag.
