Video Transcript for Trailer Hitch Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Cruze - Curt

Today on our 2012 Chevy Cruze we'll be installing the Curt Hitch, part number C11282. Next we'll give you a couple measurements to assist you selecting accessories for your new hitch. From the center of the hitch pinhole to the outer most edge of the bumper is 6 inches. From the top of the receiver tube to the ground is 11 inches. This will assist you selecting accessories such as a ball mount, bike rack, or cargo carrier. To begin our install, we'll first go ahead and point out the attachment points. We'll have a total of 4 attachment points, 2 on each side. These attachment points are pre-drilled holes in the frame by the manufacturer.

To secure a hitch, each one of the attachment points will get a 7/16ths carriage bolt and block, along with a 7/16ths flange nut to secure the hitch. Now to get our hardware in the frame, we'll use the supplied 7/16ths bolt leaders, by feeding the bolt leader through the attachment point and out the access hole, forward of the frame, sliding on the block and thread on the carriage bolt. Feed them both into the frame and pull them into position. Once we've finished installing the rear attachment point, we'll then leave the bolt leader on the carriage bolt and repeat the same process on the opposite side. Now with all our hardware in the frame, we're ready to put our hitch in place. Then we'll bring the passenger side up to the frame, feeding the pull wire through the forward attachment point and being careful not to push the rear hardware into the frame as we put our hitch in place.

Then we'll install the rear attachment point flange nut. Next we'll move the bolt leader for our forward attachment point and install the second flange nut, here on the passenger side. Now with our passenger side installed finger-tight, we'll repeat the same process on the driver's side. With all our hardware installed, we can now go ahead and tighten it down. Next we'll torque to specifications as indicated in the instructions. Now with our hitch secured and torqued to specifications, we're ready to hit the road. That does it for the install for the Curt Hitch, part number C11282, on our 2012 Chevy Cruze.

Product arrived in a timely manner. The instructions were simple to follow and when I needed help I was very happy to not have my call answered by a machine. They picked up in one ring! Very happy with the overall service and product! 156872

Hitch looks like decent construction for a class one bolted on perfect. If your car doesnt have the exhaust heat shield it literally takes less than 5 minutes to put the bolts in and torque of them to spec, if you have the tools. Good buy made in the USA and will haul my bikes. Paid extra for the 3 day shipping for the hitch and my new bike rack both shipped out promptly that day 3 days later it was here. 411178

I purchased the C11282 hitch receiver, hitch bar, and wiring kit that all was perfectly matched to the '14 Chevy Cruze. I already installed the package after watching with the concise on-line video instructions. Great product, instructions, easy installation, and rapid standard shipping. I considered purchasing the hitch package from a local brick and mortar store but decided on to insure all the parts were matched for my car. 127204

Easiest install ever. Watched video and installed it in under 15 minutes. Works great with rack for my needs. Only loading it with about 150lbs including weight of rack, so it's perfect. Price was awesome and as previously stated install was a breeze. Shipping was fast and customer service was super helpful when I wanted to add a strap to my order. Overall I am completely satisfied with the product and support. 374433

Mounted this on my 2014 Chevy Cruze with RS package. Fits perfect! Tucks in close to rear fascia and is hard to notice unless your kneeling or at a distance. Fast shipping from a Great seller! 172816

Great product. I didn't have a lift for the car, so fishing the bolts through was a little tough around the muffler. (There was a brace in the way so the muffler didn't drop down to much on my 2012 Verano.) Once that the bolts were fished through though, it only took about 10 minutes to get it bolted on and it looks great. Will definitely tell people looking to buy a hitch about this. 249195

After reviewing the super video for this unit on my car I ordered and installed it with no problems. A very minor discrepancy was that the printed instructions called for a 3/4" socket but the parts are 7/16" nuts -- no big deal. This is for a Chevy Cruze and is to be used to carry bikes. The easiest way to handle bikes. I would definitely go with again. 220942

I just installed this hitch over the weekend and it is well concealed. Installation was easy. My only gripe (which really wasn't a big deal) was the instructions were pictures of another vehicle which didn't seem to matter but the bolt sizes listed on the instructions were wrong... It said 3/4 or 13mm which aren't even equivalent sizes. The bolt was really an 11/16. 178475

Wow! I received the trailer hitch the day after I ordered it. I watched the video on installation. I thought there was no way it could be that easy. My 6 year old daughter and I installed the hitch onto my 2013 Chevy Cruise. I timed it and it took 8:32. In less that ten minutes I drove it off my wheel ramps. Amazing. 145860

Took me 10 minutes to install on my 2011 Cruze Eco. I didn't even need to jack the car up. The cross member is completely hidden by the bumper. It's a very stealth design. Super fast shipping, had it in 2 days. I highly recommend etrailer and Curt hitches. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. 69869

Pretty straight forward install, I did not have ramps or even a lift to install so it made it a little more difficult to accomplish. Overall, I am happy with the product but will have more to say after I put it to use with my mountain bike but I do not foresee any issues. 210083

by: Roger C.09/23/2014

The hitch installed very easily. I used a floor jack to hold it up, after I fished the bolt/plates into the frame. Made it much easier than trying to bench-pressing the hitch while trying to install the nuts... Very well made hitch, will hold my bike rack perfectly! 152743

by: Seth V03/16/2014

This product was very easy to insall. It took about 30mins to fully install. You will want an extra person to help you. One persons to hold the receiver in place and one person screwing the nuts on the bolt. I recommend this hitch, you can hardly see it under my cruze. 120858

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch
Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?

  • Advisability On Using Extensions With a Tow Bar
  • Although it would seem like an ideal way to carry the items you wish to carry, I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and they told me that they strongly advise against adding additional extenders to the hitch. Adding the reducer on your receiver does not reduce the towing capacity, but the double receiver does. Normally, adding extensions to your receiver reduces the towing capacity by 50%. Adding an additional extension would certainly reduce the towing capacity by another 50%. With that...

  • Can 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Tow a Trailer with Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11282 is confirmed to fit your 2014 Chevrolet Cruze as long as you don't have a diesel engine. If yours is a diesel you'll need # C11371 instead. I checked an online copy of your owner's manual and your Cruze is able to tow a trailer that is 1,000 pounds or less. You should verify with your printed copy to be sure. To tow a trailer you'll also need a ball mount, hitch ball, pin and clip, and trailer wiring. To power the trailer's lights use the...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 on 2012 Chevy Cruze with RS Package
  • According to Curt Manufacturing, the # C11282 is compatible with all models of the Chevy Cruze, including those equipped with the RS package. If you will be using the hitch for a bike rack or a cargo carrier, keep in mind that the warranty requirements of the hitch require that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 is required. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24882 has no such requirement, which is why I would recommend it over the Curt model. I have linked you to installation instructions...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
  • For the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze, the CURT Trailer Hitch, # C11282, is verified to fit. If you will be carrying bikes with this hitch on your Cruze, the Thule Vertex 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9028, is a popular 2 bike rack option. If you will be towing with your Cruze, I have listed some items you may need to complete your Class 1 towing setup. 1-7/8 inch hitch ball, # 19256, or 2 inch hitch ball, #19258 Trailer Wiring Harness, # 118058 Ball Mount Bag, # ETBMB Hitch Lock, # 5200

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2015 Chevy Cruze
  • If you have a gas engine in your 2015 Chevy Cruze you would want the Curt Hitch part # C11282, if you have a diesel engine you would want the part # C11371. For a ball mount you would want the part # C45522, 1-7/8 inch ball part # 19256, 2 inch ball # 19258. If you are looking for a bike rack the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 is a great option. It's one of our most popular racks and has been reviewed very well.

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • The difference in the shipping weight for the Draw-Tite part # 24882 and the Curt Hitch part # C11282 that is also a confirmed fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze is due to the different side bracket plate designs. The Curt hitch has much larger brackets attached to the cross tubes with more material and that is why it weighs about 10 lbs more. Both of the hitches available for your vehicle are Class I hitches. These hitches are limited to only carrying 2 bikes due to the limited weight capacity...

  • Can a 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Hitch Adapter be Used with Curt Trailer Hitch C11282 on a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • As you have mentioned, the Curt trailer hitch # C11282 (and other brands) for the 2012 Chevy Cruze have 1-1/4 inch receivers. Because of this, to use a 2 inch accessory, you will need to use a hitch adapter, # HTAD. However, this will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The Curt hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds, by using the adapter, it is reduced to 100 pounds. This means that the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 100...

  • Bike Rack Clearance Provided by Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 Installed on 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • When we installed the Curt # C11282 and the Draw-Tite # 24882 Class I hitches on a 2013 Chevy Cruze, we found that the Curt hitch had a 6-1/4 inch measurement from the hitch pin hole to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper. The Draw-Tite was recessed so that the dimension was 3-3/4 inches. To determine if your rack will be compatible, simply measure from the hitch pin hole to the closest obstruction on the rack, be it the upright, the foot of the rack or in the case of a platform...

Of the three hitches shown on the linked page I suggest the Curt # C11282 since it has the same weight capacity as the others but it costs less.

Since you said the rear fascia is different, you can take a measurement to see what bike racks will work for you. You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel.

  • Function wise the Draw Tite part # 24882 is the winner for your 2013 Buick Verano. The reason I say that is that the Curt you mentioned requires the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack and the Draw Tite does not. So it is the winner in my opinion.

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Buick Verano Turbo
  • There is a hitch available for your 2013 Buick Verano Turbo, check out the Curt Hitch part # C11282. I attached an install video for you to check out. With this hitch you can install a Class I rated hitch mounted bike rack, but you will also need to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050. I attached a review video for you to check out for this product. The most popular hitch bike rack with other Verano owners is the Thule Doubletrack Bike Rack part # TH990XT. I attached a review...

  • Curt or Draw Tite Hitch Recommendation for 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • The mounting brackets of the Curt Hitch part # C11282 are much bigger than the Draw Tite hitch part # 24882. That is the weight difference. If it were me I would go with the Draw Tite. It has a better price, the same capacities, doesn't require a stabilizer strap like the Curt does with non-supported loads, but also because the lighter weight will make it easier to install. For trailer wiring you would want the part # C56214, for a ball mount part # 3593, and then for hitch balls...

  • Is Bumper or Fascia Trimming Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • To install Curt trailer hitch # C11282, you will not need to make any modifications to the bumper or rear fascia. You will need to temporarily lower the exhaust by simply removing the affected area off of its hangers while supporting the pipes with a strap. And there is a heat shield that has to be modified as well but it is under the vehicle and not visible. Once installed the receiver will be below the rear fascia. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the hitch...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2016 Chevy Cruze
  • The Curt hitch part # C11282 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Chevy Cruze so I would recommend it for your. The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry...

  • Will the Thule Helium Aero Fit a Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • When we did a test fit of the Curt trailer hitch # C11282 we measured 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the rear bumper. I have linked a video showing the installation for you. On the Thule Helium Aero, # TH9042, it measures 14-3/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast, 11-1/4 inches to the lever that allows the rack to tilt, and 4-1/2 inches to the anti-rattle knob. Because the rear bumper curves up above the hitch, there will...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • Yakima bike racks that fit 1-1/4 inch receivers do not fit most Class I trailer hitches. Since all of the hitches for the 2012 Chevy Cruze are Class I hitches, you will want to look at some other racks that are Class I compatible. However, on a Class I trailer hitch, both bike rack manufacturers and hitch manufacturers agree that the most bikes you can carry safely on a Class I trailer hitch is 2. To carry 2 additional bikes you would need to add a roof rack to the vehicle. With the...

  • Can a 2013 Buick Verano Carry a Hoveround Scooter on a Trailer Hitch
  • If by pulling it you mean towing the Hoveround on a trailer then your 2013 Buick Verano could handle that. But if you mean having the Hoveround on a hitch-mounted carrier and off the ground then it depends. Both of the trailer hitches that fit your Verano ( # 24882 and # C11282) are Class I hitches with a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. Tongue weight capacity is the amount of weight that can be suspended from the receiver. So the combined weight of your Hoveround and the carrier...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Buick Verano with 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
  • Thanks again for your recent purchase! The Yakima Doubledown 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, # Y02424, can be used on a sedan but it is not compatible with a Class I hitch like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C11282, that installed on your 2014 Buick Verano. In this case it wouldn't work for your sedan but no worries, I have numerous other options for you and have included those in the attached link. One of our most popular options for a Class I compatible bike rack is the Swagman...

  • Hitch Installation on 2013 Chevrolet Cruze and Use of Hitch-Mount Bike Rack
  • Three hitches are offered for your 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, including the Curt # C11282 that you referenced. All are light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I types that can carry up to 2 bikes (no matter what the bike rack's capacity is). All will install in an essentially identical manner since they all will use the same mounting points on your Cruze's frame. The link provided will show you all three. Two of these, the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch models, are both made by the same company, Cequent Performance...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for a 2016 Chevy Cruze
  • The Curt trailer hitch # C11282 is rated for 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 200 pounds tongue weight. Your 2016 Chevy Cruze is rated for a maximum of 1,000 pounds according to the owner's manual. this will limit the hitch to 1,000 pounds. The hitch does fit the 2016 Cruze. The correct ball mount for this hitch and vehicle is # C45522. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. And for trailer wiring use # 118508 to add a 4-Way flat connector to the rear...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier For 2014 Chevrolet Cruze
  • We have a video of the Curt Hitch part # C11282 being installed on a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze and the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper is 6-1/2 inches. We'll use that dimension when recommending a cargo carrier that will work for you. I have attached a helpful article that explains how this measurement is taken. The hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. The hitch-mounted cargo carrier I recommend is the Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier, part...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • For your 2012 Chevy Cruze you would need a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 24882. The Chevy Malibus and Cruzes are different enough vehicles that a hitch from one would not fit the other. I attached an install video for you to check out as well.

  • Is Bolt Leader Wire Included in Installation Kit for Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11282
  • I might be a little biased but I think that our install videos are awesome. Written instructions get the job done but seeing someone complete the installation on video takes all of the guess work out of it for me. I'm glad to hear that you also feel that they are a great help. As for the bolt leader wire, yes it is included with the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C11282, for your 2014 Chevrolet Cruze. This is a custom fit hitch and offers bolt-on installation with no drilling...

  • Will Magna-Flow Aftermarket Exhaust Tips Affect Hitch Fit on 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
  • I do not see any fits for Magna-Flow complete aftermarket exhaust systems offered for your 2012 Chevrolet Cruze so I presume you are referring only to exhaust tips rather than a complete aftermarket exhaust system. The installation of any of the hitch receivers offered for your vehicle should be unaffected by the exhaust tips installed on your Cruze. Many vehicles require for hitch installation temporary lowering of the exhaust to provide better access to the hitch connection points...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Cruze to Carry Bike Rack
  • Your Chevy Cruze would need a trailer hitch installed in order to carry the Thule Double Track # TH990XT bike rack. The hitch is sold separately. Of the hitches avalabile for your Cruze, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24882. The Draw-Tite model isn't the least expensive, but it would be better suited to carrying the bike rack you're interested in. The Curt # C11282 warranty stipulates that a stabilizing strap, part # 18050 be used for non-trailer loads like bike racks....
