We're going to have two zip strips up at the top, and one off to the side. That's going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth, possibly hitting the bike rack or the bikes in front of it, and damaging them.

Honda Civic Questions

  • All three of these platform bike racks are very similar when compared to one another. There are some differences though that I will outline to give you a better idea of what each has to offer and what might work best on your 2007 Honda Civic. To start with, all carriers can carry two bikes, but they all have a different overall capacity in terms of weight. The Swagman XTC-2, # S64670, has a capacity of 35 pounds per bike, or 70 pounds total. The Swagman 2 Bike Carrier, # S64650,...

  • Starting with a trailer hitch mount, it is the most stable way to carry bikes on a vehicle. It is also easy to load and unload the bikes when compared to a roof rack set up. There are many bike racks available but on a 2003 Honda Civic sedan you are limited to carrying 2 bikes at most because all of the hitches available for the vehicle, see link, are Class I hitches that can only support 2 bikes. For this set up you would need to buy a hitch and a bike rack. On a trunk mount,...

  • When equipment is installed on the roof of a vehicle, wind noise will occur. It is unavoidable, but you can do certain things to minimize the noise. The round bars used with the Yakima rack system you mentioned can be quieted to some degree by using a fairing like part # Y07049. Keep in mind, the fairing will help streamline the rack itself, but whatever is placed on the crossbars like a cargo basket, box or ski rack will cause further turbulence and therefore noise. Using...

  • I did some digging and found that the Curt trailer hitch # C11391 does fit the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan si model so you can use it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be using the hitch for something like a bike rack or cargo carrier you will need to make sure that the accessory is rated for use on a Class I trailer hitch. Class I trailer hitches are limited to 2 bikes maximum. Curt recommends the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050,...

  • I spoke with my contact at Optronics and was informed that the Lumen Difference between the # STL22RB and the # STL72RB LED tail lights is not tested by Optronics. I was told though that the more LED lights that are in the tail light the brighter the light will be whether the description says super diode or not. I have personally installed the Sealed, 6-1/2 inch Oval LED Trailer Stop, Turn and Tail Light, 10 Super Diode, item # STL72RB, on a CornPro 24 foot car hauler and...

  • To flat tow your 2004 Honda Civic you will need vehicle specific base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, a supplemental braking system, tow wiring for your Civic, and a wiring extension. For base plates, I recommend a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit. If your Civic is a Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2236. If your Civic is a standard model, not SI, SIR, or Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2234. I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 to use with the Blue Ox baseplates. The...

  • I contacted our representative at Hidden Hitch about the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # 60834. The representative at Hidden Hitch informed me that the thickness of the tubing for part # 60834 is 3/16 inches. The arms of the hitch that connect to the frame of the vehicle are 1/2 inch thick. This is a Class I hitch and is intended for light duty use as it has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. Part # 60834 includes a drawbar, pin and clip. If you plan to do light towing,...

  • The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805 is designed to be able to fit your 2015 Honda CR-V. A technical note for the bike carrier states that the lower hooks will need to be replaced with the Saris Hatch Huggers for Bones Trunk Mounted Bicycle Carriers, part # SA3035 when installing the Bones on your 2015 CR-V. I have attached a link to a product review video for the hatch huggers you can check out.

  • The Draw-Tite Class I hitch that fits your 2012 Honda Civic sedan, part # 24763, is made in Mexico. This is not at all uncommon for lighter-duty hitches like this. Curt offers their own Class I hitch, part # C11391, that is USA-made and which includes a pin and clip. Note that if used with any non-trailer load, say a bike rack or cargo carrier, Curt requires you to use their stabilizing strap # 18050 which is not a requirement for the Draw-Tite. If you like you can order...

  • There are actually a few items you will need to safely flat tow your 2010 Honda Civic 4 Door. If your Civic is a DX, EX, or LX, you will need Roadmaster EZ Base Plates, # 521557-1. You will then need a compatible tow bar like RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar, # RM-020 with Quick Disconnects # RM-201. I have included a link to the installation details for the tow bar for reference. To complete the towing set up for your Civic, you will need safety cables, lighting, and a supplemental...

  • We have confirmed with Curt that the hitch part # C11391 has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Honda Civic SI Sedan so it should work well for you. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670....

  • The Yakima KingJoe Pro, part # Y02624 would be an excellent choice for your 2008 Civic. The KingJoe Pro is very easy to use, and actually looks good on the back of a vehicle. Keep in mind that the rack has a 70 lb weight capacity. I will provide a link to the install instructions as well as a link to a product demonstration video

  • While there are people that flat tow the 2012 Honda Civic automatic, I have found that Honda states that the vehicle should not be flat towed. You will want to consult the owners manual to verify the flat tow-ability of the vehicle. If the owners manual says not to then I do not recommend going against what Honda says. If you find that the vehicle can be flat towed then there are 5 items you will need: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking....

  • I reviewed the installation instructions for the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, part # 59759, and there is no specific mention of any fit issues on the 2007 Honda Civic 4-door equipped with a sunroof. (For your reference I have sent a copy of the instructions to you in a separate email.) My contact at Rola advises that there may be clearance issues between the sunroof and the front crossbar. Also, as with some roof racks from other brands, there may be fit issues between certain...

  • The bike rack that I would choose for your 2013 Honda Civic sedan is the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9006XT. This bike rack uses support pads with a flattened surface that will make better contact with your trunk over the round pads on the Passage bike rack. The Gateway bike rack uses molded rubber pads that will last longer than the soft rubber pads of the Passage bike rack. If you will be keeping the bike rack attached to your vehicle for extended periods of time, it is...

  • When the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24763 is installed on your 2008 Honda Civic Coupe there will be about 4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on your rear bumper which wouldn't be enough since the Thule T2 # TH917XTR requires that measurement to be 3-1/2 inches at most. If you check out the picture I attached you will see that the Curt Hitch part # C11391 will actually stick out past the bumper so it would work well for you with your T2 rack. Curt...

  • For your 2016 Honda Civic Touring I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24937 which is listed as a fit for all styles of the 2016 Civic. If you plan on doing any towing the proper ball mount to use is # 3593. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. And for trailer wiring you can use # 119179KIT to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear of the vehicle. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to...
