Hitch was shipped in a timely manner. Upon arrival, I installed on a 2013 Ford Taurus. Pretty straight forward. The pictures that can be found on eTrailers website accurately depicted the installation procedure. The hardest part was getting the fishing cable to the hole so I could fish the bolts to the correct holes. I like the way the hitch looks on the car. It is hidden and not really noticeable. I won't be able to give towing feedback as this hitch will only be used to carry bicycles. Good product and good company to do business. Would recommend eTrailer!!96156
