2022 AcuraRDX

Installed Hitch on 2022 Acura RDX Advance package with factory installed spare tire. This is the second hitch I have purchased and installed from etrailers. Shipping was fast, but as many others have said box arrived with portions of the hitch exposed outside of the box. Hitch had several scratches in powder coat which I covered with spray gloss paint. Reason for 1 star removal.

Hitch was fairly easy to install after removing spare tire and dropping the 2 driver side exhaust hangers as there was just not enough room to get hitch into place over the muffler otherwise. A second set of hands is best to position hitch and get bolts started without cross threading. Factory spare tire fits after hitch - it is a very tight fit against the receiver but it does fit. I have not tried the hands free tailgate sensor, as never used it so wasn't worried about it. (lesson learned, turn it off in the car settings so you don't keep opening and closing the tailgate while installing the hitch!)

Hitch extends 2.5" from the bumper, but as the back of the hitch receiver is up against the spare there is no way to have it extend less. The OEM option uses a new bumper trim piece which hides some of the extension. I was OK with the look as dealer wanted nearly $1,500 for parts and labor. Images show dimensions, including dimension to the spare at the top of the receiver.


Customer service answered my questions thoroughly and quickly and the hitch receiver was shipped quickly too. The hitch fit perfectly, everything lined up. Installation was straightforward. I only had to lower one side of the exhaust to get the hitch to slide into place. The exhaust hangers were the toughest part of the job. I was able to remove them by hand once I applied some lubricant. An extra set of hands would have made it a little easier, but you can install this with one person. I am very pleased with etrailer's service and product.


No issues with install and the hardware that was included was heavy duty! Installed it without lifting vehicle at all. Just make sure you have a friend help


My hitch went all the way to east coast before coming back to Nevada. As a result the box was full of holes. The powder coating was worn thru in several places. The holes did not allow for me to install the mount. After filing the holes I finally got the hitch mounted. Now there is no way to mount the spare tire.

I recommend to use a rust-oleum spray paint to cover any scratches to prevent corrosion in the future but I will have customer service reach out to you about the damage. This particular hitch only fits with spare tires that are 18 inches or smaller.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 03/11/2022


No mounting screws or washers in the box, just the hitch.

We recently sent you replacement hitch hardware and were wondering if you had any feedback about the hitch for other shoppers? We look forward to hearing from you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 08/08/2022
Yes - received- very happy now - thank you
-- comment by: Kevin - 08/13/2022


It took a bit if persuasion to get the hitch to fit. The mounting points weren't aligned. It works and is solid.
Also worthy to note that the packaging is terrible... It arrived in a cardboard box with no protection. 3 holes punched through where the brackets are and were all obviously scratched up as a result.

It doesn't affect the performance of the hitch but if I'm buying something new, I just feel like it should be free of flaws.


Hitch is heavy duty and looks good. After installation does not get in the way. Perfect for hauling with an Acura RDX


Product fit perfectly and is high quality. Had it for a year now, works perfectly.

2019 AcuraRDX

The instructions say you have to remove the spare to install the hitch, but it does not tell you that once the hitch is installed you cannot reinstall the spare.

The slots in the hitch that correspond to the holes/nuts in the chassis were too short. I had to extend the slots by about 3/16 to be able to get them in.

The flanges that fit inside the chassis were too wide to allow the hitch to fit in between the anchoring locations. I had to use a hand sledge to bend them so it would fit.

All in all a bad experience. For something that should have taken 30 mins to install, it took nearly 90 minutes and resulted in my losing my spare tire!!!

This fits with factory temporary spare tire which is normally 18 inches. The other issue sounds like flex which can be fixed with the tips in this article:
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 10/05/2021


It’s exactly as advertised. No problems, but I had it professionally installed. You need a lift to do it easily.

2019 AcuraRDX

Love it. Sturdy and perfect fit to my 2019 Rdx. Would love it more if there was a way to make it more oem flush to hide the arms behind the defuser panel, but i cant complain. the product works just as it's described.


Was a little hesitant to order this and install myself. Was not exactly an easy install…but definitely doable! Removing the rubber vibration pieces to the exhaust is a knuckle buster especially when not lifting the vehicle! BUT, one it in fit well, and am SUPER happy I did it myself! Excellent quality, on-time shipping, and an A+ company to deal with. HIGHLY recommended!


Absolutely garbage packaging I have not opened the package but it better not be damaged!11

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will have our customer service team reach out to you to assist.

2019 AcuraRDX

Great price, fast free shipping, what more do you need. Etrailers is my go to for all my towing needs. I know if I have an issue the service will be there as always.


Fit well but it does mess with the foot activated hatch opener sensor. I'll need to see if that sensor can be moved.


Easy install. Looks great. Great price.

2019 Subaru Forester

Just installed the 4th Hitch Receiver I've installed from Curt (Hyundai Santa Fe, Subaru Forester, GMC Terrain, and most recently, an Acura RDX). Every installation was perfectly fitted with good instructions and all the hardware I needed.


Easy to install. Good product


Perfect fit. Very pleased once again.


The hitch was easy to install and looks quite nice on the car. Great price compared to the dealership quote.


The ordering process was easy, the product was exactly as described and it arrived on time. Couldn’t be more pleased!



Great fit and is just perfect for my RDX - Thanks


Hitch was delivered in just a few days! Fit perfectly!

  • How Far Recessed Is the Hitch Pin Hole On Curt Hitch for 2021 Acura RDX
    The Curt trailer hitches like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C95CR for a 2021 Acura RDX all measure 2-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the receiver. This will allow you to use pretty much any bike rack.

    Though I can confirm the Curt # C95CR will definitely fit your 2021 Acura RDX and is designed to fit all package/trim options, we have not done an install on this vehicle as of yet. With that being said, we do not have the needed measurement requested, unfortunately. I double checked with Curt and there is no issue with the Technology Package, but you will need to find the sweet spot for the liftgate sensor on the bumper. The receiver opening will be right in the middle, but you can go...

  • Will The Curt Hitch Receiver Fit A 2022 Acura RDX With A Factory Trim Piece
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2", part # C95CR, will fit your 2022 Acura RDX. There are some issues that you should be aware of before installation. The first thing is your spare tire will have to be 18" or smaller in order to install this hitch receiver. If you have a larger spare tire, it will not be able to be stored underneath your vehicle. In addition, you may lose the functionality of your hands-free lift gate due to sensor interference. With regards...

    I confirmed with my contact at Curt that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C95CR will fit all models of the 2021 Acura RDX and will not interfere with the spare tire on models with the Advance Package. The instructions do state that removal of the spare is required for installation, but you can then re-install the spare after the receiver is installed.

  • Will The Curt C95CR Hitch fit A 2022 Acura RDX Advance With 19" Wheels?
    The Curt # C95CR, which will fit your RDX, can handle wheels up to 18" in diameter, but not over that. So yes, your spare will be fine as it is a 17" wheel. However, as the regular wheel on your 2022 Acura RDX with the Advance package is 19" and came with 235/55 R19 Continental CrossContact LX Sport tires, which measure 29.2" in diameter, it will need to be stored in the cargo area if you ever have to run the spare tire.

  • Curt or Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2021 Acura RDX to Resist Scratches/Corrosion
    While there won't be a difference in terms of corrosion resistance between the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C95CR and Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76268 for your 2021 Acura RDX, I recommend the latter, the Draw-Tite # 76268. The reason why is that the Curt has a slightly glossier finish than the Draw-Tite, so scratches are going to be a bit more noticeable. These two hitches are otherwise exactly the same, with the same installation, and as of this writing there are no...

    The American made Curt Class III Hitch Receiver # C95CR is a confirmed fit for all models of the 2022 Acura RDX, including the Advance package. With that said, 19" wheels cannot be stored under the vehicle as the hitch will sit inside of the frame and will take up too much room for it to fit properly. As to the kick sensor, I have never seen one ever be completely negated. You will need to find the sweet spot on either side of the receiver as it will sit in the same place as the sensor. The...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendations For 2019 Acura RDX To Carry Etrailer Cargo Carrier
    Both the Draw-Tite and Curt 2" Class 3 receivers will be able to accommodate the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier # e98874. I do recommend going with the Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch Receiver # C95CR as this is made in the USA and typically will have higher quality powder coat paint to do a better job of resisting rust and corrosion. Another reason to go with the Curt is because Draw-Tite states that spare tires 18" and smaller will fit, but Curt states that all sizes will work.

Yes, the hidden crosstube looks a little more sleek, but for the longest time pretty much every hitch had the crosstube visible so as far as function goes you'll be just fine.
