The Curt hitch I bought from etrailer was a great price, shipped fast and I installed it in about 15 minutes. Great shopping experience.


All parts arrived the next day. Everything fit per installation instructions. Wish everything I order online worked as well. Thanks again for carrying products made in USA.

Great. Made in America made even better

Hitch fit as it should. Good price. Decent turn around after ordering.

2011 Volvo XC90

The hitch fit my 2011 XC90 perfectly. Instruction say to remove and replace the rubber muffler mount, but you don't have to fully remove it, just take the bolts out and rotate the whole mount straight down to the ground on its rubber. Then put up the hitch, and rotate the mount back up and put the bolts in. It was EASY! Also cutting out the XC90's plastic valance was no problem. You just draw a rectangle with a Sharpie. I used a sawzall, but a hacksaw or even tinsnips could do a good job. Cutout is about 2 inches by 5 inches and it's below the car, the cut area is not visible at all. I included a pic.


Hitch was easy to install and has worked flawlessly.

2005 Volvo XC90

Have not installed the receiver hitch. It does not work with my vehicle even though it says it is the correct hitch for a 2005 Volvo XC90. It hits the exhaust. I am not an amateur at installing hitches. I've bought from you before and not had any problems.

Curt, I apologize for any inconvenience with your order. Occasionally, a installed hitch will make contact with a vehicles exhaust system. Thankfully, there are some remedies available for this issue by looking at this helpful link. I hope this helps!

2005 Volvo XC90

Ordered the Curt hitch and T-tap wiring harness for the 2005 Volvo xc90. Everything shipped quickly and came packaged together. I appreciated the emails telling me when teh package shipped and tracking information. The hitch went in smoothly and without and problems. All hardware was included and the holes lined up perfectly. The wiring harness could not have been easier. simply unplug the existing light connections and snap the new harness inline. A cordless drill is a must to secure the ground screw, even though it is self tapping. The kit included everything I needed, including wire zip ties.
I would recommend to anyone looking for a hitch related product; good product and great online videos to walk you through an install.

This hitch was perfect on my 2013 Volvo XC90 - we loved it and used it a lot! The guys at our local gas station and service garage installed it easily. We just sold our car, and unfortunately the hitch would not fit on our new car - this was the hardest thing to give up!


The hitch is high quality. Fits my car perfectly. Shipped quicker than I expected! Great price as well.


I purchased two hitches from etrailer. Both fit the car perfect. The videos on how to install were great.

2007 Volvo XC90

The product was of great value and construction. Instructions were simple and installation was easy. On the 2007 XC 90 we had to pop the rivets that hold a plastic piece of the bumper to keep it from virbrating. We did that, used zip ties with the same holes and wrapped around the bumper. I drove 600 miles and no noise. Excellent product.

2004 Volvo XC90

I installed on a 2004 volvo xc90. I watched install video went exactly as shown. Only hiccup was I had a bumper support that I had to trim/grind 1/8 of inch or so. Also if you are laying underneath car best having 2 people. I managed with a jack but wasn't easy.


Super easy and straight forward. Had the hitch installed in 20 minutes. No fuss. You will need a helping hand. A bit much for someone alone. We are always happy with Curt products. And like always, eTrailer is AWESOME!


They were prompt accurate and the product was of exceptional quality.

Brad - 08/15/2021

2006 Volvo XC90

Perfect fitting product and relatively easy and I am very experienced. There is a little bit of trimming of the bumper cover to make it fit exactly right, but this can be done with a hack saw.

2004 Volvo XC90

Installation of the hitch took 45 minutes in my driveway with hand tools and a jack, fit exactly as it should and the instructions offered ample detail.
The muffler on my particular model ended up sitting directly against the hitch but I don't foresee any issues and it could be easily remedied by a muffler shop for a few bucks.

2004 XC90 T6


etrailer made it a simple process for a good price. They didn't have the hitch I ordered in stock and with a simple phone call the replacement hitch was on it's way with no issues.

Volvo XC90

I bought this hitch for use with a bike rack on my Volvo XC90. It was very easy to install and works great. The online video instructions from eTrailer were very helpful.


Great service. Competitive prices.


Installation was a bit of work but not too bad. Probably took 2hrs at most. It is a snug fit and you have to trim a bit of fascia out of the way. I am happy with the look and function of the receiver. Overall very satisfied.


The receiver is quite heavy so I struggled to line up the holes, but once done, it fits snugly and wirks

2013 Volvo XC90

Thank you for the follow up. I love the trailer hitch exactly what I needed and it looks great.

Volvo XC90

Looks great, works even better, I believe this is the best one on the market for the Volvo XC90.

2008 Volvo XC90

Was easy to install on my 2008 XC 90. Did it in a street parking spot outside my apartment in less than an hour.

2012 Volvo XC90

I have a 2012 xc90 and the 2011 hitch fits perfectly, but it effects my back up sensors a little annoying

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch # 13559 Fit 2014 Volvo XC90 And Does Fascia Need To Be Trimmed
    The Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13559 is a fit for your 2014 Volvo XC90. Per the instructions, some minor trimming of the fascia may be necessary when installing the hitch. This Class lll hitch features a 2 inch receiver opening and bolt-on installation. It comes with all of the hardware and the installation instructions. When using a hitch on the back of your vehicle you will want to consult your user manual or your dealership to make certain you do not exceed the manufacturer recommended...

  • Weight and Dimensions of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13559
    Thank you for your service! When it comes to shipping the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13559 has a weight of 38 lbs (including the packaging) and comes in a box that is 58" x 8" x 26". I did go out to the warehouse and found the hitch itself measures 44-3/4" long x 12-1/4" deep x 9" high. This is a fit for US versions of 2003 - 2014 Volvo XC90 so I am unsure if it will fit your vehicle if you purchased it across seas.

  • Curt or Draw Tite Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Carrying Cargo Carrier with 2013 Volvo XC90
    For a cargo carrier application the Draw Tite hitch part # 75152 that you referenced would be the better choice. This has the higher 500 lb tongue weight capacity which is the correct figure to use for a cargo carrier. Weight distribution capacity is when you use a weight distribution hitch. Which can't be used with a cargo carrier. Hidden Hitch is no longer made, but they were made by the same company as Draw Tite so they were the same hitch. I attached an install video for this hitch...

    We provide our own videos for installations. We have not had the opportunity to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13559 on a Volvo XC90 yet. The # 13559 does have a bolt-on, no drill installation and comes with the necessary mounting hardware and instructions. I have also included a link to the installation instructions. We do have a video of a Draw-Tite hitch being installed on a 2013 Volvo XC90. The installation of the Draw-Tite is going to be extremely similar to the Curt. I...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2006 Volvo XC90 for Use with a Bike Rack
    The correct hitch for carrying a bike rack with your 2006 Volvo XC90 would be the Curt Hitch part # 13559. The reason it is called a trailer hitch is because this product was initially designed for people to tow trailers with their tow vehicles. Later people came up with ways to use the hitch to carry bikes using bike racks designed for the hitches. So this hitch would be exactly what you need. The most popular bike rack we offer that would work well for you would be the Swagman XTC-2...

  • Best Trailer Hitch For 2013 Volvo XC90 For Towing Trailer
    So there are two hitches that fit your 2013 Volvo XC90, which are the Curt # 13559 and Draw-Tite # 75152, and between the two, the best hitch for your '13 XC90 for towing is the Draw-Tite: - Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75152 The reason I like the Draw-Tite the most is its larger capacity, which speaks to its overall build strength, as well as how it installs. While the Curt requires you to trim the lower fascia of your Volvo, the Draw-Tite does not, keeping its original...

  • Does The Curt Class III Trailer Hitch Fit A 2004 Volvo XC90 With Spare Tire Underneath
    The Curt Trailer Hitch, # 13559, on the 2004 Volvo XC90 will not interfere with the spare tire. The spare tire is removed before the hitch is installed to allow easier access to the mounting locations on the vehicles frame. After the hitch is installed then the spare tire can be put back in place. The installation video of the hitch on the 2010 Volvo XC90 did not show them removing the spare tire or reinstalling it after installation. There is a tie down bracket underneath the vehicle...

  • Is Curt or Draw-Tite Hitch Easier to Install on a 2008 Volvo XC90
    Out of the Curt # 13559 and Draw-Tite # 75152 hitches that fit your 2008 Volvo XC90 I recommend going with the Draw-Tite because it has a small cutout that fits easier with the exhaust hanger bracket so the install is slightly easier/quicker. I like the design of the Draw-Tite over the Curt anyways because the safety chain loops are easier to access which will be nicer, especially if you plan on using it for towing. To complete your towing setup you also need the T-One Wiring # 118411...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a 2004 Volvo XC70
    I do have a trailer hitch receiver that will fit your 2004 Volvo XC70 but it has a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening, not a 2" receiver tube opening. They do not make one with such for your Volvo and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13559 that you referenced will not fit. The correct trailer hitch I recommend for you is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12318 which as previously mentioned has a 1-1/4" receiver tube opening. The 1-1/4" receiver tube opening however can still do mostly...

  • Can Trailer Hitch from 2010 Volvo XC60 Be Used on 2012 XC90?
    We do have a hitch fit for the 2012 Volvo XC90, but unfortunately the 2010 Volvo XC60 and and a 2012 XC90 use different hitches. For the 2012 XC90, I'd recommend the Curt Class IIl hitch, part # 13559. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness, part # 118411, a # 2923 ball mount and for a trailer ball, use # 40038 for a 1-7/8 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.
