Just installed this hitch receiver on my 2014 Mazda 6 without any problems. My first time installing a receiver. Took about 45 minutes taking my time and chatting with a buddy. Hitch build quality is good. Holes lined up on the frame rails perfectly. All parts were included in the package, and instructions were pretty good. I do feel like the receiver is a bit exposed and could probably be tucked in a bit tighter into the vehicle (but we're talking 1/2" here at most). That said, the receiver is NOT the lowest point on the underside of the car so I don't expect any significant impact on MPG from wind drag, if any at all. Tip for DIY installers: You use fishwire to get 4 spacers/bolts into the frame and aligned in their respective holes. On each frame rail (left and right), there are 4 holes, all of which are shown in the instructions. 2 middle holes are clearly for the bolts, and I assumed the other 2 were the access holes for fishwiring the spacers/bolts into place (i.e. one nearest each bolt hole). This is NOT the case. You only use 3 holes total: 2 middle for the bolts, and only the rear-most (towards rear of vehicle) hole is used as the access hole for BOTH bolts. The front-most hole is not used at all in the process. The spacer will fit through the front hole but not the bolt. This cost me about 10 minutes on the install because it's virtually impossible to remove the spacer once in place. I got everything sorted out in the end but just wanted to mention that as it's not explicitly clear from the instructions (well, it wasn't to me). If I can figure out how to upload some photos I'll do so later. 75214





Comments

Thanks for the good comment. Wasnt sure it would fit, but I see from the pic in the above review and your comments, it really works. Are you planning lots of towing or just bikes etc?

Per the Owners Manual, the 2014 Mazda 6 should not be used to tow any trailer.

Product was delivered in a secured box. Had planned to install myself but my car had a charcoal canister recall so I had the dealer install, they charged one hour. Looks great! 145335

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry 2 Bikes on a 2015 Mazda 6
  • In order to be able to carry up to 4 bikes on a 1-1/4 inch hitch the hitch will need to be a Class II hitch. Class I hitches can only carry 2 bikes max. I attached an FAQ article on hitch classifications that you might find informative. The only hitch we carry for your 2015 Mazda 6 is the Curt Hitch part # C11356 which is a Class I hitch. The Thule Hitching Post Bike Rack part # TH934XTR that you referenced can be installed into a Class I hitch but you can only carry 2 bikes with the...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Mazda 6
  • The Curt hitch part # C11356 that you referenced would be an excellent choice for a hitch for your 2015 Mazda 6. For a bike rack the most popular one we carry is the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers. Check out the review video I attached.

  • Choosing Hitch That's Most Concealed for 2015 Mazda 5
  • I've created a photo for you showing all three hitches next to each other. All three hitches share a very similar design, have the same weight capacities and would install in the same manner. The crossbar and receiver opening of all three hitches would be visible below the rear bumper fascia of the 2015 Mazda 6. Of the three, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite 24908 if you were using the hitch as an attachment point for a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrier. If you...
