Great quality, looks great, pretty easy installation. Highly recommend! E-Trailer did a nice job providing instructions. Took about an hour on my 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. 58983

Instructions where very good and clear. I was able to bolt up the hitch quickly (less than 30 min) and very easily. I would suggest a second set of hands just to guide it into place a little easier. The use of the round bar makes it look "stock" and it blends in very nicely. Used on 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. P.S. I am not using for towing, just a cargo carrier and maybe a bike rack. 41176

I have stuck with Curt for many of my car's hitches. The quality is the best and fit is always excellent. The install on this particular vehicle was simple. The only complaint I have from Curt and/or etrailer is these hitches really should be wrapped with stretch wrapping. I have had a total of 6 hitches sent to me over the years and everyone of them comes in chipped and scratched. The mounting plates are the first to rip through the box and sometimes actually get bent. It would be nice to get a hitch one of these days in perfect condition.124041

  • What is the Difference Between CURT Trailer Hitch # C13079 and # 13581, 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • Basically, the trailer hitches you are looking at fit 2 different vehicles. The CURT Trailer Hitch, # 13581, is designed to fit NON-Sport models of the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander. If you have a Sport model, you would need CURT Trailer Hitch, # C13079. The vehicles have different mounting points and dimensions so they require different hitches.

  • Curt Hitch Recommendation for Carrying a Bike Rack on a 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch part # C13079 that you referenced has a 2 inch opening and would work well with a bike rack that is designed for hitches with 2 inch openings like the model you referenced. Curt recommends the use of a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 any time you carry a non-supported load like a bike rack or cargo carrier. Check out the installation instructions I attached for this product I attached.
