Highly reco etrailer. All the bits were in the box and the install video was spot on. In fact they made it seem TOO easy. And that was my downfall. I needed a buddy to help and shared him on the video (he has the space and tools - I live in Brooklyn and don’t even have a garage). The two of us watched the install video and we’re like ‘no problem! I ordered the hitch and about a month later (not due to delivery but schedules) we finally tackled the job. And it did not go well, all ‘user error’. I meant to rewatch the video right before we did the install but we had some minor crisis so I forgot. Bad idea. Everything we did wrong was pointed out in the video: to start the hitch was really, really well built and engineered. So it doesn’t have a lot of tolerances, it basically fits perfectly. So the part in the video about cleaning off the bolt seal, that’s super important. Us idiots didn’t do that. So we struggled to get the hitch in place to line up with the bolt holes. We also did not have a lift or even decent jack to give us more space. It’s doable, but not ideal. Given how we were struggling to line up the holes we made a really stupid decision to use a jack to lift the hitch up. Kinda force it up and into place. Dumb rookie mistake that we could have avoided had we rewatched the video and re-learnt that the bumper rails are what the bolts are attached to. So is pushing it up misaligned the holes, resulting in us stripping one of the damn nuts. Luckily there was a mechanic down the road who had a set of metric taps and a lift and he kindly helped us fix our mistake. The whole exercise could have been done in less than 40 min, had it not been for our bravado and that silly expression ‘when all else fails, read the instruction manual!’
But if you watch and follow the instructions from etrailer, installing a Curt hitch on a VW 2020 Tiguan will actually be really easy. I can’t imagine how much eye-rolling their techs will do when they read this!

I do want to add that the purpose of installing this hitch was to make it easy to put bikes on the car. We also bought an Allen 3 bike hanger with an adapter for 2” hitches. Please do not buy this thing. It’s well made but poorly engineered. I’m returning it after driving the bikes around the block. Very unstable. And the adaptor has broken in many folks experiences on [line].Such a pity, because as I said, it’s well made but poorly engineered.

If anyone has a great 3 bike rack they would reco, I’m here. Really need something I can trust.


Comments
Thanks for your entertaining review. As far as the bike rack, we do not carry the Allen 3 so I looked it up to see the price point and if it was a hanging rack. The bad thing about hanging racks is the bikes tend to rattle around more, but it is the most cost effective option. If you want a 3 bike rack that will do the job go with item # MPG2130

Thule Helium Pro 3 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum

. If you want to try a platform rack they are heavier but hold onto your bike wheels instead of the frame, so no contact, less movement, and more secure, go with item # HR4000

Great product and great service. However this is the 2nd hitch I ordered from etrailer that has come in a box that gets destroyed in shipping. Looks like UPS attempted to retape the box but once it was delivered parts of the hitch were completely exposed. See photos.

I installed the hitch yesterday on my 2022 VW Tiguan.
I had put one of these on my 2019 VW Tiguan earlier this year and it worked and fit perfectly.
I was a bit disappointed this time.
First, not having the factory bolts and having to do the fishwiring wasn't ideal. That's certainly not etrailers concern, I understand.
Second, I had to remove a large piece of trim from under the car (presumably a splash guard) in picture . It was in the way of the hitch but also covered 2 of the bolt holes as well as the access holes for fishwiring.
Third, and probably most importantly, as you can see in images, the trim on the bumper is compressed and is now bowed with the hitch installed. I even cut 2 slits into the underside of this trim to allow it to flex. In order for it to truly fit, I think I would have to do some pretty invasive surgery on that piece of bumper, which I'm not really comfortable doing. And I'd have to remove the hitch to try it, which isn't a small task.
It doesn't look that noticeable, but I'm a bit concerned the pressure the hitch is putting on the bumper will warp it over time and/or even lead to cracking.



by:

This is a great hitch but not so easy as far as installation. The frame on the car has internal parts that need to be aligned when installing and in my case needed to have the whole bumper removed. Then the rust stucco spray needed to be scraped off so the hitch can fit in alignment with the holes. But don’t let this discourage you. Once completed, it’s really solid and fully capable of handling its max load with ease. Solid craftsmanship. I only took off one star because of the installation snafu I had but hopefully this clears it up for future installers.

2022 Volkswagen Tiguan

Bought this for my 2022 Tiguan R Line . Had to remove the rain guard on the bumper because it was in the way of the hitch bolt holes. The hitch is very heavy and I was not able to hold it and pull the bolts through with the fish wire by myself. Had Uhaul install the hitch and wiring for 2 hours labor so not bad. Volkswagen should just keep the bolts in the frame like previous models. Shipping was fast but the box came damaged and the hitch had some scratches but it is not a big deal. Overall would reccomend but would have a mechanic install if you do not have a lift and extra set of hands.


Comments
On 2022 and newer Volkswagen Tiguans the plastic shroud connecting the frame and bumper cover rear of the muffler will need to removed and will not be replaced during install. I do recommend to touch up the scratches with a Rust-Oleum type of spray paint to prevent corrosion in the future.

A friend needed a hitch on his Tiguan so he can store his bike rack and pull his medium sized camper. People at work told me to buy it from etrailer and I did. It showed up right on time, and install was honestly very straight forward. Figment was spot on, all the holes lined up and the supplied hardware was correct.

I would refer anyone I know to buy from them and if you are looking for a hitch on your Tiguan to buy this one. The class 3 has a 2” receiver witch allows more options and strength when it’s needed most.

2021 Volkswagen Tiguan

Perfect fit! Perfect directions. Bottom line if you watch the video and follow step by step instructions then your golden. If you have the Tiguan with no factory hardware I advise you to watch the video where they show you how to fun the fish wire setup. (Super easy)



by:
2020 Volkswagen Tiguan

So far so good. Install was slightly harder than shown due to the bumper bar. However, once you line it up properly it's fairly easy to get it installed. I would strongly recommend 2 people to install as the hitch is hard to set in place. I ended up using 2 jacks and moved the bumper bar lined up so we could put in the default 16mm bolt / washer in. My wife didn't complain and said it was barely noticeable so I think we have a winner. Hopefully it doesn't drag and hit anything but we live in a major city so hopefully that isn't an issue. Fits my rack nicely and we're excited to hit the local trails.



by:

Hitch is solid and works great on my 2019 VW Tiguan! It does appear to sit a little low to fit around the rear fender, but I have not scraped the pavement with it backing out of my driveway. I had it installed from my local service gas station. I use it all the time to carry up to 4 bikes around with no issues.

Volkswagen Tiguan

I was able to install this on my VW Tiguan with help from my buddy to hold it up. I pulled a small trailer to haul a motorcycle from another state. It worked well and I still have it installed. I would recommend this hitch. It’s is made with quality. The price is good.



by:
2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

I like the hitch a lot but it took me more than 30 minutes to put it in! I did it by myself in a little over an hour. I used a little 2 ton bottle jack to hold it in place and get it around into the right position.

The directions provided were clear - it's quite straightforward.

Once the bracket is in close to the right place, if it's quite tight like mine was, I recommend you use a mallet or something to bump the brackets so the mounting holes are centered as much as possible. That will help make replacing the bolts easier. Then, to replace those bolts, put one hand on the bumper (the metal tube - not the plastic bumper cover) and move the bumper up and down and in and out. around so the bolt threads nicely. You can reach the that bumper easily in the center of the car under the license plate. Move that around until your bolt is threaded nicely, then you should be good to go. I got one of the back ones started but left it quite loose. Then I worked around and got them all in loose, then simply tightened them up and moved the exhaust back up.

It looks great. There's no cutting of the bumper cover, which is good. I was concerned about it being really low but I'm not sure it goes much below the muffler and I don't think it's the "low point" of the undercarriage.



by:
2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

Hitch was a great direct fit on my Tiguan and the installation video on etrailer site was super helpful. You can do this without vehicle being lifted or even jacked off the ground. The only hang-up was the vehicle undercoating on frame made it a bit "sticky" to get the bolt holes aligned but with some manipulation was a great fit. Don't hesitate to do it yourself as dropping the exhaust is easy.


Comments
Its like its not there which is key for it being installed and forgotten as it does the job with no qualms.

The tow hitch was *exactly* what I was looking for! It fit my Tiguan perfectly and I did not have any issues installing it. It took me just under two hours to install, and that was mostly due to my doing it without help, so it took some extra time to set up a jack to help with lifting it and balancing it.



by:
2018 Volkswagen Tiguan

The hitch receiver fits my 2018 VW Tiguan R Line after I did some mods, I also prefer the 2" receiver on this hitch to the 1 1/4" receiver that VW offers. The installation was not easy because they said that CURT did not test it on 2018 R Line Tiguan package. I had to lower a little bit the exhaust after installation because it was a little interference with the exhaust pipe, but after that incovinient was solved, every thing just fit good, I´m very happy to use my THULE rack on it. The receiver looks great on my Tiguan R Line, check it out the pictures.

Volkswagen Tiguan

The hitch was a perfect fit. I ran into problems due to the car because the welded nut inside the frame moved not allowing two of the four bolts to be screwed in. If you own a 2020 VW Tiguan, I attached a PDF of how I solved the problem. NOTE: I did all the work with the car on the ground. If the car would have been on a lift, the issue would still happen, but might be easier to resolve.

Perfect and still looks great.

Easy to install. It took me a little bit longer to install it than 30 min. After removing factory bolts brackets inside frame had a little tension and misaligned with openings in frame. Hitch openings are perfectly aligned with openings in frame. Once bolts were guided the installation went smooth. Great product. It will be used for bike rack.

I installed for someone else and have not heard back from them which is a good sign! Install was easy and the instructions combined with the video were all I needed.

If you can change a tire, you can install this hitch. No need to cut the rear valance which I did not want to do.

Bought this for my bike rack and it works great. Just have to turn off the rear back up collision avoidance when your bike is on the rack.

If you need a decent departure angle this is not the hitch for you.


Comments
Works great for a bike rack mount! I use this every week to transport my bike to the park. No rattling or anything like that noticed and the receiver still looks good, not rusted or anything after a year.

Just what I needed. Not going to be hauling a trailer with it but excellent for cargo rack. Definitely did take note during the install video where he said to have a helping hand. Bench pressing this bad boy while trying to thread a screw was a B! Get someone to help definitely.

It’s been a year and still great. Hooked a trailer up to it to just move it down the road with no issues. Mostly use it for bike and cargo rack. Highly recommend this hitch.

I have the trailer hitch put on at Pep Boys which only charged me $50.00 to install. It fits perfectly unlike what you order from VW. VW part requires that you have to have part of the bumper cut to make the trailer hitch fit.

This trailer hit fits perfectly and I don't hit my legs when putting items in the back.

I highly recommend purchasing this product.

  • 2019 Tiguan Cannot Get Bolt to Thread Left Rear Bolt
    On the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13381 uses M10-1.5 bolts to hold it in place. What we run into all the time is fouling of the weld nut located in the frame rails of the VW Tiguan. I recommend using a nylon or wire brush and some lubricant to clean it out. Test again with the bolt if it will not thread at that point clean the weld nut with a M10-1.5 tap and all will be well.
