I checked out the video on youtube and read the other reviews for my 2016 Honda Pilot. The hitch arrived a day early. I followed the simple instructions and was able to install the hitch in about 45 minutes by myself. Having another set of hands would have been nice but I just used a jack stand to keep one end up while I worked on the other side. Getting the exhaust out of the way was a bit of a pain but with a little WD-40 I was able to move it easier. The hitch looks like it was made to be there. All in all I couldn’t be happier.l and have already recommended the product to friends. 553341

I just bought a 2016 Honda Pilot and I can't believe this hitch is already in production and ready for delivery in just a few days. And although this hitch is strong enough to pull a big trailer or boat, I plan to use it for my bike carrier only. The price is amazing too. I asked the dealer if they could install just a hitch and was told, "No. You have to install the wiring harness as well." Total cost? $580 plus tax and installation fees of about $225! I'm impressed by the near invisibility of the hitch. On most cars I see with non factory hitches most of it is hanging below the bumper and you can clearly read it's manufacturer's name in bold letters. Not a Good look! Lastly, when UPS driver brought the box to my front door I thought it had fallen off the truck somewhere down the road. The box looked like it had bounced down the road for about a hundred feet. Not to worry. Even the driver was impressed that the hitch had neary a scotch and was ready for immediate installation. 213729

I have the 2016 Pilot and was very displeased by the dealer response and price when I requested the hitch as well. I was nervous to order this, not knowing if indeed it would fit due to the new design and model just being released. So, were you able to install this one without any complications?

More from Doug L. First, make that scratch not scotch. Secondly, the directions and YouTube video both show installation on the Acura MDX. However, both SUVs use a similar chassis so the directions were appropriate. I questioned having to first. lower the spare tire but quickly realized that I could rest the hitch on the fully lowered spare while I positioned the hitch into place. Also, attach the side with tailpipe first because if you attach the other side first youll hit the tailpipe when you try raising the hitch.

Just for the record, the receiver portion of the hitch sits BELOW the bumper, unlike the expensive factory hitch that is all hidden BEHIND a removable cover in the bumper.

As always, the Curt hitch and etrailer are the best! I got notification it was delivered. I went home and installed it in about 15 minutes by myself (probably not recommended). Dealership cost was over $500. Installed by myself and got the hitch from etrailer, it was less than $160. 461484

Ordered the hitch for my 2016 Honda Pilot on 2/29 and received it 3/2. Super speedy. Box arrived on front porch with one small tear so I didn't even check the product. My husband threw it in the back today and I had it installed at Goodyear. The Uhaul near me only installs their own product. I hated their tacky stickers on my last car so forget their product which was priced a lot higher. Goodyear charged $25 to install with an only for you price. This was after they checked that it was an easy install and I gave them the Uhaul $29 price. The video made installation look easy but I don't own a torque wrench and would have paid the $50 quote I first received for convenience sake. Thank you! The savings are being put towards a new bike rack. 239455

Super easy to install, just 6 bolts! Looks good! Package was in good condition upon delivery. I think it took longer to install the wiring harness than the hitch. End to end installation time for both was about 1.5 leisurely hours. 528281

A little more difficult to install than I had anticipated. Unless the hitch is tipped down and slid up behind the exhaust pipe hangers, it will not go into place. I mounted it by my self and it rubbed the exhaust hangers until secured in place. If the portions that fit flat on the frame were notched slightly, this would not have been a problem and would have swung into place much more easily. I believe that this would still have been a problem even if I had a helped on the install as the hitch is wider than the rubber bushing on the exhaust hangers. That said, it is a heavy duty well made product and looks great on my 2017 Acura MDX. 445716

Trailer hitch and wiring were both as represented by etrailer. They installed fairly quickly in accordance with the instructions. They were received expeditiously after the order was placed.

First time ordering from eTrailer in Canada. Knowledgeable staff fast delivery. We ordered Curt hitch for 2016 Honda Pilot Touring. Took a chance as not sure would fit Canadian Honda as this is for US models. Dealer installed without issue. The top of the hitch receiver is 14" above ground level. This is below the rear lower bumper panel. The hitch does not have bracket for the wiring harness - will deal with this later. 219409

Good product. Nice fit and they used high quality steel and bolts are excellent. Etrailer does a great job of supporting their sales with installation videos, that's why I went with them. BUT horrible job packaging for shipping. They threw wiring harness, full tow hitch frame and tongue with ball all in one box. They had their own boxes but the wait of the frame and being loose crushed and destroyed other boxes. Also frame came out of large box and chipped paint on two edges, so I had to paint these two damage spots before install. 5 stars product. 1 star packaging. 426083

I purchased a new Curt trailer hitch to put on my 2016 Acura MDX. It's primary use will be for a bicycle rack. Let me first start with the website - it's great! Etrailer does a fantastic job of being current and having all the latest stuff. The product review videos and installation videos are awesome and they were a huge help in helping me make a smart decision on what product would work best for my use and vehicle. As for the hitch there were no surprises. It had clean solid welds and a pretty darn good painted finish for a trailer hitch. It was a perfect fit and I installed it easily in 30 minutes tops. I had also planned on buying a 2 bike platform bike rack from etrailer but found myself needing it much sooner than I had planned for so I bought one from a local bike shop. I ended up paying $40 more than what etrailer had it for.... But again thanks to their website for helping make a smart decision on a bike rack. 299930

The hitch went on in under 30 minutes... it would have been half that if the frame holes weren't so "gunked up". Installing was very easy and I was able to do it without another hand to help hold the hitch while I secured the bolts. I bought this on Saturday and it was delivered on Thursday, all for no shipping charge. The video was great. I watched it before in installed the hitch. It was so detailed, there was no need to read the paper instructions. 422300

Excellent tow hitch and easy to install. Arrived as described, about five days. It took three of us to lift and screw in, but once you get one bolt up for each side the remaining bolts can be easily screwed in. Great pricing too. I will purchase all my future products from etrailer.com since everything went smoothly with no problems noted. 903141

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • How Does Washer Face when Installing Curt Hitch # C13146
    You'd want to put the convex side of the washer against the bolt head of the hardware that comes with the Curt hitch # C13146 when installing it. That way the head pushes it flat as you tighten it which acts as a lock nut.

  • Recommendation for a Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness on a 2014 Acura MDX
    The Curt Class III Receiver Hitch, # C13146, is a great choice for your 2014 Acura MDX and offers maximum towing capacity of 6000 pounds and tongue weight capacity of 900 pounds. It is a good idea to check your owner's manual to obtain your vehicle's towing capacity and follow which ever has the lowest weight capacity rating. The Curt Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring Harness, # C56192, plugs directly into the vehicle's existing wiring and should be a pretty easy install for you. Before you...

  • Torque For Bolts On Curt Trailer Hitch When Installing On 2014 Acura MDX
    I spoke with my contact at Curt about your 2014 Acura MDX. They told me that the torque is 139 ft-lbs for the M14 bolts for the part # C13146 hitch installation. I am unable to tell you why the specs for the Acura OEM hitch is so much lower. As far as handling and feeling heavier, my contact said it may feel a bit different because installing the hitch will tighten up the frame on the rear of your MDX, but you really should not feel the 45 lb weight with the hitch installed.

  • 2014 Acura MDX Trailer Hitch Recommendation
    The big difference between the hitches we offer for your Acura MDX is basically that the Draw Tite part # 75225 comes with a bracket for trailer wiring welded to it which you wouldn't need. Because of that the Curt part # C13146 that you reference is the winner. Without the wiring bracket present this hitch is the least visible so it would be what I would recommend for you.
