Installation instructions were very explicit and installation was completed in less than two hours by two men. Hitch is well made. etrailer decal affixed to the hitch was installed up-side-down so the the name was not readable from the back of the car.. 474979

Hitch put on the car in anticipation of tow and bike carrier use, but have not used it for either purpose yet.

Perfect fit and easy install. I purchased my receiver and light harness and received them faster than advertised. Products came with great instructions and the online videos made the install a snap. I recommend the Curt hitch and recommend ordering from etrailer.com. Customer service was outstanding. When I put my hitch on my SRX, the trim piece wouldn't fit back on (which I knew before ordering by watching the videos online). It was not difficult to cut out a hole in the facia for the hitch to stick through. I used a box cutter/ utility knife to carefully cut out the hole. I started by making the hole smaller than I thought I needed, then slowly cut away the plastic until I got a good fit. 325998

I installed the hitch today and it did take a little longer than expected. This was due to the fact that three of the holes did not line up as expected and it required using a jack and pry bar to get them located properly. (one on each side and one in the middle) The holes were off by a maximum of 1/8 inch but it did make the installation more difficult than necessary. 573604


Comments
The mounting flanges of the hitch are constructed of a mild steel that has a little bit of give to it. This allows the hitch to flex along with the vehicle to a small degree, and also allows the mounting flanges to be gently manipulated back into place if they should become misaligned during shipping and handling. Ill link to a help article that explains a few methods of moving the mounting flanges back into position.

The hitch went on very easy. I looked at all of the other options and the CURT looked like it would fit the best. I notched out the cover and it looks real good on the car. 2012 Cadillac SRX Check ot the picture. 69978


Comments
RobertI saw your photo of your SRX on the eTrailer website.Can you further explain how you notched out the cover on your SRX for the hitch as am going to do the same on my 2013 SRX and would appreciate any advice.i.e. Did you cut the cover into a left and right piece or were you able to just notch out a piece in the center, and any suggestions on type tool you used to notch it.Then how are you able to reattach the cover with the hitch now in the way?thnxGeorge

I used a small cutoff rotary Tool to notch out the cover. It took a couple of tries to get the right fit. It takes some effort to get the ball in the hitch. You can cut more of the cover to make it less of a pain to get the ball in. The less you cut the better it looks. Bob

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Installation of Curt Hitch C13002 on 2011 Cadillac SRX
    Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13002 will install on the 2011 Cadillac SRX such that the end of the receiver tube will extend out past the location of the OEM knock-out panel. This is why that panel must be notched. If you refer to the linked image taken from our install video you'll see the receiver tube position relative to this panel. The complete install video and the written instructions are also included for your reference.

  • Can the Center Knockout Panel be Re-Installed After a Trailer Hitch on a 2015 Cadillac SRX
    The receiver tube portion of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13002 will extend out past the rear bumper fascia on the 2015 Cadillac SRX so the center knockout panel cannot be reused unless modified. This will be the case for all aftermarket trailer hitches available for your vehicle. However, if you trim the center knockout panel around the receiver tube opening and install a hitch cover like part # I-728 you can achieve a very clean look which you can see in the attached photo. Unfortunately,...

  • Will Addition of Trailer Hitch and Transmission Cooler Allow 2015 Cadillac SRX to Tow 2,900 LB Boat
    I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2015 Cadillac SRX and it states that if you do not have the factory trailering package then the SRX has a maximum towing capacity of 2,500 pounds. With the factory trailering package the capacity increases to 3,500 pounds. I wasn't able to determine what exactly is included with the factory tow package but I can say that installing aftermarket enhancement parts like a transmission cooler will not increase the towing...

  • Grade of Hardware Included with Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for Cadillac SRX
    The hardware included with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13002 is Grade 8. If you need replacement hardware you can use # RHK and choose Curt from the drop down then enter the part number of the hitch receiver. This will get you the exact replacement hardware included with the hitch originally.

  • Why Does Curt Hitch for 2016 Cadillac SRX Have Higher Capacity than Vehicle
    A lot of times our hitch manufacturers rate their hitches for higher towing capacities than what the vehicles they fit have. This is just a way to make sure the hitch never fails. You always have to go by the lowest rated component in a setup for the overall capacity as you are only as strong as your weakest link. The American made Curt hitch part # C13002 that you referenced would be a great choice though. I attached an install video for more info for you to check out as well. Since...

  • Are Power Tools Required to Install the Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Cadillac SRX
    There are no power or pneumatic tools required to install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13002 on your 2013 Cadillac SRX though they would help with removing the old hardware. However, you will want to obtain a torque wrench if you do not already have one as it will be recommended to torque the bolts down to the manufacturer's specifications. If you do not have a torque wrench you can rent one from most local auto parts stores free of charge or purchase one from us, part #...

  • Comparing Curt And Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches For 2015 Cadillac SRX
    The Curt Trailer Hitch # C13002 weighs about 20-lbs. The Draw-Tite hitch # 75682 weighs close to 19-lbs, so there is very little weight difference. Both trailer hitches are Class lll and have 2-inch receiver openings. I have attached links to installation videos for both of these hitches you can check out.

  • How to Pick Out Correct Rise/Drop Ball Mount for Cadillac SRX When Towing
    That depends on the coupler height of your trailer when sitting level. You'd need to measure from the bottom lip of your coupler down to the ground when the trailer is level. Whatever the difference is between that number and the height from the ground to the top of hitch opening on your vehicle is the amount of rise/drop that you need. I attached a help article that covers this as well down below.

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 2015 Cadillac SRX
    When towing a relatively high amount for the capacity of a vehicle it's a great idea to have an aftermarket transmission cooler. For a 3,500 lb trailer towed by your 2015 Cadillac SRX with a hitch like the part # C13002 I would recommend going with a cooler like the part # D13502 which will fit and work well. This measures 11" Wide x 7-1/4" tall x 7/8" deep which would easily fit in front of your radiator.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Options for a 2013 Cadillac SRX
    The wiring harnesses available for the 2013 Cadillac SRX come in two different styles. Models that came with a factory tow package do have a plug and play style connector such as # 118259 or # 56096. If you are unsure whether or not you have the tow package you can contact the dealer, give them the VIN of the vehicle and they should be able to tell you how it is equipped. The other style is a hardwire harness such as # C59236 or # 119179KIT. Plug and play harnesses are not always available...

  • Draw-Tite vs. Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2015 Cadillac SRX
    The trailer hitch receivers that fit your 2015 Cadillac SRX are remarkably similar; the offer the exact same installation, the same clearances, and the same look. Both the Curt and Draw-Tite hitches are going to be concealed, as you can see in the accompanying photo of a '15 SRX, and are relatively simple bolt-on installations. There isn't a deciding factor that can be pointed to that would make me recommend one over the other, and both will serve you will so if I were you, I would...

  • Will Adding a Higher Rated Trailer Hitch to a 2010 Cadillac SRX Increase Its Towing Capacity
    Trailer hitch receivers, such as the Curt # C13002 that fits your 2010 Cadillac SRX, are often overrated compared to the vehicles they're designed to fit. Unfortunately, adding a higher rated hitch does not increase the towing capacity of your vehicle, you're always limited by the lowest rated component of a towing set up which is often the vehicle itself. So if you've found that your Cadillac has a maximum towing capacity of 2,500 pounds then you cannot tow a heavier trailer. Your...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Cadillac SRX
    The Curt Hitch part # C13002 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Cadillac SRX so it would work well for you. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount...

  • What is Towing Capacity of 2012 Cadillac SRX
    I looked up your 2012 Cadillac SRX and it has a towing capacity of 2,500 lbs so as long as the boat and trailer weigh less than that you'd be fine with this as your tow vehicle. For a trailer hitch the Curt part # C13002 would be a great option with more capacity than you'd need plus a relatively easy install. Then for trailer wiring all you'd need is the # 118259 for an easy install. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900....

  • Size of Tubing Used to Construct Curt Class III # C13002
    The cross tube of the # C13002 Curt Class III Receiver hitch is constructed of rectangular tubing that is 2-1/2 by 1-1/2. Looking at the front face of the cross tube, the tubing would be 1-1/2 inches tall and 2-1/2 inches deep, so the # 18156 connector mounting box would be a better fit for you.

  • How To Install A Curt Hitch and A Brake Controller On A 2010 Cadillac SRX

For towing you will also need the Draw-Tite Ball Mounts, # 2923, the Pin and Clip, # PC3. The hitch ball will be either the Tow Ready 2 Inch Hitch Ball, # 19247, or the Tow Ready 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball, # 19260.

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring Harness and Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2011 Cadillac SRX
    If your 2011 Cadillac SRX already has the connector to plug a trailer wiring harness under the rear bumper then all you need for a wiring harness is the Tekonsha Custom Harness # 118259. This plugs directly into the connection and provides you with a 4-way trailer connector that will hang under the Cadillac's rear bumper. We recommend mounting the 4-way, with a mounting bracket, like # 18144. If your Cadillac did not have the connector under the rear bumper you would need the Upgraded...

    There are Class II and Class III hitches available for your SRX. I'd recommend going with a Class III hitch because it's more common and there's more accessories available for the 2 inch Class III receiver. I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13002. This hitch has a higher capacity than the other hitches, but you might be limited by the towing capacity of your vehicle. Consult your owner's manual for specifics. This hitch is actually the lowest-priced of the Class III options,...

  • Recommendation for Truck Mounted Rack on a 2011 Cadillac SRX
    The neat thing about the Hollywood Trunk Mounted Bike Racks are that the Over-The-Top uses top support arms and contact points to route the straps over the spoiler, so there is no downward force specifically on the spoiler. This setup is necessary if the spoiler is plastic because it can become deformed or damaged under the extra weight. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. Another option would be to install...

  • Recommended 1-1/4 Trailer Hitch for 2016 Cadillac SRX
    The trailer hitch I recommend for a 2016 Cadillac SRX is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12070 for 1-1/4" or part # C13002 for 2". These are both excellent assembled in USA options which offer a bolt-on fit. I actually recommend going with the larger 2" option due to the amount of accessories compatible with this but either will work well. If needed, you can use a reducer such as the Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # HT02.
