Excellent quality, totally worth it ! Hitched a trailer with a Jet Ski and never had a problem with it !


Great product works very well for my ne eds


I have owned this product for one year. Product fit and durability has been excellent! I have recommended e-trailer products to a couple of friends, and they are all happy, too! Thank you for offering excellent aftermarket products, along with supporting materials! The installation videos are key.

Honda Civic

Purchased 1 year ago. I bought this to install on my honda civic so I could put a bike rack on the back for trips. I've only done this a few times throughout the year but never any issues. I like etrailer's website for showing pictures of the products on your specific vehicle because I know next to nothing about cars and car parts. The customer service is definitely above the norm and I would purchase from etrailer again


Hitch fit my car perfectly. Performs exactly as expected. Great hitch a customer service.


I ordered this hitch , and I don’t remember seeing it specific civic coupe or sedan . I got this hitch installed and it wouldn’t fit . Had to cut off muffler and put a new smaller one on .


Solid and looks great! Can’t ask for a better fit. Tuck nicely under the rear bumper.


I haven't installed it yet, but I got this simply because they have a fantastic video tutorial of it. It seems like great quality (from what little I know of trailer hitches) and I'm looking forward to getting her hooked!


I have ordered many hitches from this company b/c my wife gets company cars and we only have them a couple of years. So about every 2/3 years I have to get another hitch for my bike rack. I have always been pleased with the products and have yet to find a better price point. I recommend this company if you need a hitch.

2016 Honda Civic

Great delivery time. Shipped to my house within 2-days of placing the order. I actually drove back home to get it and install it with a family member, it shipped so fast.
Only issue I had was not with quality, but with DRILLING THE HOLES THROUGH METAL during the installation.
You NEED SPECIAL DRILL BITS - COBALT COATED DRILL BITS to drill through the metal/steel frame on the underside of my Honda Civic.
Once we got the right drill bits, the rest of the installation went pretty fast.
The DIRECTIONS on ETRAILER and CURT'S website did not say you needed cobalt drill bits to drill through steel on the underside of the car.
Other than that, great product. Waiting for my bike rack to arrive so I can use the hitch.

Great product. Very durable.
Jarrod - 05/04/2021

2017 Honda Civic

Very solid hitch. It took me about 1.5 hours but was not that hard to install. The cold bothered me more than the work. The frame on the Honda is pretty hard, so getting the first holes through was interesting. After that things went smoothly. The step drill is a necessity. Also a good drill is needed. I put the rear of the car on ramps and this provided plenty of clearance to drill holes. I used a car jack to hold the hitch in place to mark location and then when finally installing. The fish wires worked perfectly, really a great addition.
Instructions and video were excellent.

Great, Daughter uses it to attach a bike carrier and haul her bike around
Bob Z - 01/06/2019


This hitch receiver has treated me very well. After a year of regular use with a bike rack, it has held up very well. It also looks great. Installation was simple and did not take very long.

2017 Honda Civic

Seamless experience with quality product and easy installation! Looks great and stealthy on the vehicle.

2016 Honda Civic

Hitch perfectly working fine and loving it every time I go ride my mountain bike. So easy to mount my bike rack now.

Its always been very good and happy with this hitch after a year. Great product...
Michael R - 01/15/2018

2016 Honda Civic

Great product, have used it often and appreciate the quality.
It would be nice if you offered a tool to cut through tempered steel.
On my 2016 Honda Civic, the frame steel where the back holes ( nearest to the bumper) of the hitch mount is tempered steel. I had to use a stone grinding wheel to cut those holes. The front holes drilled with a standard bit.

2016 Honda Civic

Awesome Hitch, perfect for the bike rack and 2 bikes I'm pulling made my life easier knowing i can secure my bikes to something for travel without damaging my trunk or the bikes. The company itself has tons of great reviews and I only came here on a recommendation but after see the step by step tutorial on installation I was all in and ordered the same day. Have not regretted it, going on almost a month now. So hyped! You'll hear me rave to the next one looking for a hitch about this company!


Just finished installing the tow receiver, which, for one person, was fairly easy. The installation took about 45 minutes, but I had a couple of problems. The first problem with the installation occurred when I was only given three carriage bolts, instead of four. So, I had to go to the hardware store to get one, but they didn’t have any, because they are 7/16” and the store only had 3/8” & 1/2”, so I went with the 3/8” and then adapted the fish wire to accept it. Other than that, the installation went smoothly. I then installed my bike rack and went for a quick drive and found it was super sturdy, without any wobble.


Literally, could not be happier. Had it a year now and love it.


Great Hitch and very easy to install for the do it yourself person. I use the hitch for my bike rack only as the vehicle does not recommend pulling a trailer. I'm considering buying a new vehicle and I will be a repeat customer.

2016 Honda Civic

I am very happy with the trailer hitch. I purchased the hitch to carry my two bicycles. The hitch fit perfectly on my 2016 Honda Civic. I could not be happier.


Exelent support asistence


hitch perfect and reasonably priced. all set to go biking!


Ordering / shipping was straightforward and a year in the hitch is still working perfectly with my bike rack. Would definitely recommend !

2017 Honda Civic

The trailer fits perfectly to my Honda Civic.
thing to keep in mind is to use brand new drill bits, because it is hard to get them through the frame, but once that is done everything else is pretty easy.


My mechanic installed (because that's why they're in business). Already used with the bike rack, design good so the truck clears when opening..

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic Sedan
    I checked with Curt and they list the # C11604 now as a fit for the 2018 Honda Civic Sedan like you have so it would fit and work well.

  • Does 2016 Honda Civic Sedan have to be on a Lift to Install Curt Trailer Hitch 11604
    A lift is not required to install Curt trailer hitch # C11604 on a 2016 Honda Civic sedan. It would make it easier but it isn't a necessity. Jacking up the rear of the vehicle, rolling it up on some ramps, using jack stands, any of these will give you enough space to install the hitch. I have linked a video showing an example installation of this hitch for you.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2018 Honda Civic Sedan with Dual Exhaust
    For your 2018 Honda Civic sedan with dual exhaust, the Curt # C11604 is not a confirmed fit. The only trailer hitch receiver we have that is confirmed to fit your vehicle at this time is the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24954. This is a Class I hitch that will only be compatible with Class I rated accessories. The Curt # C11604 is only confirmed to fit 2016 and 2017 models. Pour votre Honda Civic 2018 à double échappement, le Curt # C11604 n'est pas un ajustement confirmé....

  • Will a Trailer Hitch Fit a 2017 Honda Civic EX-T with Honda Sensing Technology
    Looking at the graphics and info about the Sensing technology on the Honda website it does not appear that there are any sensors or equipment at the rear of the vehicle that would interfere with the installation of a trailer hitch on your 2017 Honda Civic. Also, Curt does not have any restrictions for hitch # C11604 other than it was designed specifically for sedan models and will not fit models with center exhaust. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. If...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic LX 4 Door
    There is only one Curt hitch that fits your 2018 Honda Civic sedan and it's the Curt hitch part # C11604. I would actually recommend the Draw Tite part # 24954 instead though for your vehicle because it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack and because only the hitch tube hangs down below the rear bumper so it is much less visible.

    When you install an aftermarket part on your vehicle like a trailer hitch in this case, you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11604 is confirmed to fit your 2016 Honda Civic sedan. I've linked an install video for you.

  • Installation of Curt Class I Trailer Hitch on 2016 Honda Civic Sedan
    The Curt Class I hitch you've looked at, part # C11604 would work perfectly for carrying a bike rack and two bikes on your 2016 Honda Civic Sedan. Drilling will be required to install the hitch, but as you can see from the installation instructions that I've linked for you, the installation isn't terribly difficult. The # 18050 stabilizing strap would hook into the gap at the top of the trunk lid, just behind the rear windshield. If you look at the video I've linked for you, you can see...

  • Recommended Ball Mount Recommendation for Use with Curt Hitch on 2018 Honda Civic
    The problem is that Class I hitches like what you have require you to only use the recommended ball mount for that hitch. This is due to the lower capacity of the hitch not being rated for added leverage of a higher or lower ball mount. With the Curt hitch part # C11604 that you referenced you have to use the # C45521 which has a 2-5/8 inch rise.

  • Solution to Carry 3 Bikes on a 2017 Honda Civic
    I have an alternative solution for you, but the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11604 will not allow you to carry a 3 bike rack. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11604 is a Class 1 hitch and Class 1 hitches can only carry up to 2 bikes. The reason Class 1 hitches can not carry more than 2 bikes is that they cannot handle the additional torque on the frame from the 3rd-4th bike. Instead you can use the Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack # SA803. This is a trunk mount style of bike rack that will...

  • Can Curt Hitch for 2018 Honda Civic Sedan Be Used for Vehicle Recovery
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11604 is an excellent easy to install option for a 2018 Honda Civic Sedan. It could then be used for vehicle recovery within reason, snow should be fine but mud on the other hand could create too much force for the hitch to handle. I recommend using the Bulldog Winch 3/4" Shackle for 1-1/4" Hitches part # BDW20239 for an attachment point.

  • Will the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11604 Fit a 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback EX-Nav
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11604 is designed to fit the Sedan model of the 2017 Honda Civic and is not compatible with your hatchback. For a Curt trailer hitch that is confirmed to fit your hatchback you would need the part # C11463. There is a design difference between the 2 and if you check out the installation videos that I linked you can clearly see why one would fit the hatchback over the other. Lifts do make installing any trailer hitch easier but if you are comfortable working...

    We do not currently have an approved list of mechanics/shops for installing a trailer hitch on your vehicle, however any local mechanic with a good reputation will be able to handle the installation without issue. For your 2016 Honda Civic, I recommend going with the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch # C11604 if you have a Sedan model, or the Curt Class I # C11463 if you have the Coupe.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2017 or 2018 Honda Civic Sedan EX-T
    The Curt trailer hitch receiver # C11391 is not a fit for a 2017 or 2018 Honda Civic. That hitch only fit 2006 to 2015 model years. For a 2017 Honda Civic Sedan EX-T you will want the Curt # C11604 which is not yet a confirmed fit for 2018. For a confirmed fit for both the 2017 and 2018 models, I recommend the Draw-Tite # 24954. Either option will work well with your bike rack. Let me know if you have further questions.

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2017 Honda Civic to Carry 42 lb E-Bikes
    There aren't any trunk mounted bike racks that will have the capacity you are needing. Trunk racks pretty much max out at 35 lbs per bike. So you'd need to go with a hitch mounted solution like the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202. Then for a hitch you'd want the part # C11463 for if you have a hatchback or coupe or part # C11604 for if you have a sedan.

  • Can a Bike Rack that Fits a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch be Used with a 2016 Honda Civic
    All of the trailer hitches for the 2016 Honda Civic are going to be Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. In order to use your 2 inch bike rack you would have to use an adapter, # HTAD. However, doing so will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent meaning the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed the reduced capacity. There are a couple of hitches that fit your Civic; Curt hitch # C11604, and Draw-Tite hitch # 24954. They install differently...

    A trailer hitch can be installed on your vehicle by a qualified mechanic without difficulty; they are installed with relatively few tools so if there is a local mechanic you trust or one that has a solid reputation you know of it will not be a difficult or time-consuming job; roughly a half-hour or so.
