Everything arrived on time and were the correct items purchased. My hitch was bent to the point that the bolt holes did not line up with the vehicle. I had to bend the steel by beating with a sledge hammer to straighten it out. This fixed the problem. I do not know if this was an etrailer problem or a curt hitch problem.


Comments
This is a flexed hitch problem. Hitch receivers are made with mild steel that are made to flex during an event of an accident. Here are some tips to get it aligned:

It's a great product looks very sturdy but the bolts on the right side next to the muffler is not screwing in. I need 3 different bolts to fish inside and bolt it that way not taking chance for just the left side and middle bolt only. Untill I get those bolts for now it's useless.

Thank you for the review! Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.

Super easy to install even by your self. if you have an older vehicle make sure you grab a tap or thread cleaner. Its listed in the instructions the thread size and diameter. I struggled with the last three bolts due to corrosion, the tap took about 10mins to make the threads clean. Hitch looks great and was delivered super fast.

Still works perfect, survived a michigan winter with zero corrosion or rust.

Its really very sturdy, needed another hand for installing. I installed it on a 2005 Honda Pilot, so needed to remove tow hook on rear driver side to install hitch. I had issues with rusted weld nut on passenger side, one is completely moved out, other two had no threads. I had to order the CURT 18-Inch Trailer Hitch Fish Wire for 1/2-Inch, to install the bolt from top and used a nut from bottom. Where the threads are completely gone, used a Irwin 12-1 25 mm bottom tap to rethread and was able install the bolts. Primarily using this hitch to carry a 2-bike rack. Used it for a 20 mile round trip so far, everything looks great, no wobbling. Also bought a Rola 2 bike rack from etrailer.

This will be a rather long review since I am combining the entire purchase in this one review. To start I am a 60+ yr. old female & not mechanically inclined but after getting an estimate of over $900. 00 from the local Honda dealer to install a receiver & the electrical wiring so that I could tow a small trailer I decided to shop around. I wasn't even sure of what all I would need or what the parts were called except for the ball. I visited a few websites & sent a few emails to inquire. Etrailer was the first to respond to my questions & provided links so I went back to their site. After viewing a video on the different receivers that would fit my Honda Pilot I favored the Curt receiver. That was my starting point & I moved on to the next item I would need which was the hitch. I never knew there were so many possibilities & I didn't have a clue what the rise & drop was all about so I sent another email. Within a matter of hours I'd gotten a response from a fellow named Jon G. He was just the hook-up I needed!! The links he provided answered all of questions I had & gave me the education I needed. (I was still waiting for responses from the other websites I'd sent inquiries to.) I was certain at this point that I would make my purchase with etrailer.com & proceeded filling up my shopping cart with the Curt receiver, the Curt ball mount, the chrome hitch ball, the electrical wiring & an anti-rattle hitch pin. Before I paid for the items I asked Jon G. for 1 more favor. Would he kindly view the items in my cart to make sure I had matched the items up so that each would fit correctly with the other. He did & I made the purchase. Within a few days the order arrived & I was confident enough after watching the installation video & reading other reviews that I could install everything myself. I used the lift in a friend's garage & enlisted the help of a female friend. She held the receiver up on one end while I was at the other installing the bolts. Then it was her turn. Together we had the receiver installed in less than 30 minutes. It was so easy!! Next, we installed the wiring That took close to an hour. Mainly because we were trying to be so careful when pulling back the rubber & popping out the panel clips but we got 'er done & did a beautiful job of it, if I may say so myself. All in all, it took almost 2 hours to complete but that includes disposing of cardboard boxes, putting away the tools, lowering the S-L-O-W lift & backing the vehicle out of the garage. etrailer is #1 in Customer Service & Satisfaction, Product Variety & Quality & Anything that You want to Hitch. Well, almost anything.....you can't hitch your kid....or, your dog....er, dogs. Thanks again, etrailer. You guys are BOSS!!!

etrailer is the place for my future purchases. I purchased a hitch and yakima bike rack and etrailer not only came through with the goods but also price matched the competitors. I dont usually write reviews but the service was so good I had to. The rack and the hitch are holding up since I purchased it last year.

After making prior purchases from etrailer.com, I was certain I was making a great decision to add a tow-hitch to my 2004 Honda Pilot. After ensuring the correct fit, etrailer.com excelled in providing installation instructions that (even a novice installer) can walk through with ease. Overall, the installation took roughly 45-minutes, thanks to the video installation walk-throughs via etrailer.com. One more reason etrailer.com surpasses the competition.

After owning my 2003 Pilot for 12+ years and 250,000 miles, decided to add a hitch so I could use a bike rack. Instructions were exact and fits perfectly. Took maybe 30 min total from unpacking to tightening last bolt, and that was only because I had to clean 2 of the holes out.

This was the perfect fit for my Honda Pilot. Installation was very easy; no mistakes were made! The Curt Towing Starter Kit Trailer Hitch Ball Mount was the perfect match for the Trailer Hitch receiver, as it came in a plastic box that fit perfectly in the small stowable compartment in the back of the Honda. Everything stays in the car, tucked away neatly in the plastic box.

I would definitely recommend this product, and etrailer.com - they are fast, and very responsive. I'm a tracking geek when it comes to ordering stuff online, and you know right away that they got the order, and when it ships, then the online tracking info shows you on a map exactly where it is. But on to the product! First, the videos on this site, and customer feedback, not to mention good prices and free shipping (over $150) were driving forces in making this purchase from etrailer. I was not disappointed. The shipping was quick (I did pay a few dollars extra for 3-5 days shipping, but only because we're going away in 5 days, and wanted to make sure we had it on time - but I would imagine it would have still gotten here quickly with regular shipping). Just like the video, installing this was a snap. I borrowed a torque wrench from a friend and cleaned out the bolt holes with a wire brush the night before, and the next morning installed the hitch receiver in about 30 minutes. Definitely easier with 2 people - my son help up one side while I put a bolt in the other side, then I was good to go. Only complaint (minor) is that there should have been extra cardboard support between the part in the center that sticks up and attaches to the bumper. It broke through the box during delivery. I was not damaged, but could have been. The actual hitch connector, although it was wrapped, probably could have had more padding, as there was a chip in the paint on the bottom... I can touch it up, so I'm not too concerned about it. The hitch is very low profile - others I have seen are larger and more obvious. This one is barely visible below the bumper, other than where you need to connect to.

I was able to install the hitch and wiring harness easily. The hitch came with the bolts and washers that were needed. I was even able to order the cleaning brush. They had how videos that really were helpful, watch a couple minutes and go to work. I really think etrailer is the best! I couldn't be more happy with the ordering, shipping, and installation.

I ordered a trailer hitch on the weekend. It was shipped within a few hours, tracking updates were immediately provided, and I received the hitch within 3 business days (free shipping). I opened the box up and found everything in it to be satisfactory and I hooked it up to my car within 30 minutes (with the right power tools). Thank you and I will be doing business with you again in the future.

Installed this hitch on a 2006 Honda Pilot in about 40 minutes. Fit was beautiful. Nice product. Here's a helpful hint for cleaning corroded weld nuts. Get a 1/2 " fitting brush from the plumbing dept of your local hardware store. Cut the handle off and place the brush in your cordless drill. Same principal as the battery terminal brush only much faster and easier. I cleaned the six M12 holes first then went to the two M10 holes. Total thread cleaning time was less than ten minutes for 8 holes. All bolts spun in with my fingers when I was finished. Good luck!

I mounted this on my 2005 Pilot in anticipation of towing a utility trailer. It was so easy to install, I at first thought I was doing something wrong...it was that easy. It is solidly built and the trailer light plug-in I purchased with it is beefy, and a cinch to hook up. The shipping was timely. About a month ago, I finally got my utility trailer and, after towing a few thousand pounds of broken concrete, timbers, furniture and building materials, I would say that I am very pleased with the Curt Trailer Hitch.

This trailer hitch fit perfectly on my Acura MDX. Installation took me about an hour and half, mainly due to the fact I was not using a lift and lying on my back to do the install. I would definitley suggest having an extra person help with the installation. It would have been difficult if not impossible to hold the hitch in place while and bolt it on at the same time. Video instructions on etrailer made all the difference. The videos notified me of potential issues I might have during the install so that I was prepared for these and they didn't hinder the installation. Shipping was free and extremely fast (ordered on a Wednesday and arrived the next day). I highly recommend this hitch and etrailer.com.

I received my hitch receiver in 3 days - which is amazing. It was a Curt hitch and this is the 5th one I've installed in the past couple of years. They are absolutely simple to install! The hitch fit perfectly on my wife's Honda Pilot and looks good too. We can now use her car to tow a boat or snowmobile trailer occasionally and will primarily use it with a cargo carrier and motorcycle rack. You can't beat E-Trailer for service or price. They're great!

I ordered a trailer hitch for my 2004 Honda pilot. It came in less then a week good packing. I watch the video on how to install this helped a lot. I installed it in about 20 minutes it fit perfect and all the right bolts. In the video it shows to clean the threads with a wire brush. Mine wear full of rust this took me about 40 minutes to clean. I also got the wire harness for the hitch this fit great to about 15 minutes to install. All in all this was a great experience. I would highly recommend this company. I ordered all parts online this was easy to navigate all parts needed.

  • Does Trailer Hitch for 2008 Honda Pilot Come with Everything
    For just a hitch for your 2008 Honda Pilot all you would need is the Curt # 13328 which comes with everything you'd need to install. You might be asking if this comes with trailer wiring, which it does not, so if you needed that as well you'd want the Tekonsha kit part # 118336 which is very reliable and easy to install.

    There are a couple of possible reasons why the center mounting flange on Curt trailer hitch # 13328 is not lining up with the holes in your 2007 Honda Pilot. First, sometimes in the shipping process a hitch can flex. As long as there are no indications of stress the flange can be flexed into the correct position. The other possibility is the order in which the hardware was tightened down. If you were to change the order of how the hardware was torqued down, say starting with the...

  • Above Ground Height of Curt Class III 13328 Trailer Receiver Hitch on 2004 Acura MDX
    I don't have that exact measurement handy, but I was able to figure it out for you. The drop measurement (distance from the underside of the frame member to the top of the receiver tube) is right at 3 inches. This measurement on the Draw-Tite # 75599 is just a little bit less at 2-1/2 inches. This means that the inside top of the Curt # 13328 would sit at about 16-1/2 inches above the ground, versus 17 inches for the Draw-Tite. I've linked you to the install instructions for each hitch.

I have linked an installation video to show you the process (on a 2003 Honda) and you can refer...

  • Comparing Factory and Aftermarket Trailer Hitches for a 2007 Honda Pilot LX
    Besides the huge price difference, there will not be a lot of differences between aftermarket hitches like # 13328 and the factory or dealer option hitches. I do not know who makes the factory or dealer option Honda hitches but I can give you the specs for the Curt hitch and you can compare them to the factory hitch specs. The Curt hitch is rated for 350 pounds tongue weight, 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight. When used with weight distribution it is rated for 500 pounds tongue weight...

  • Hardware for Curt HItch # 13328
    The only hardware required are bolts and washers which are supplied with your Curt Hitch # 13328. If you need replacement hardware you can order our kit # RHK. I have added a link below for that item. Be sure to fill in your hitch brand and model number. Some customers find the the bolts thread smoother if they use a 1/2" Tube Brush # 814092 first. I have included a link to the hitch and brush.

  • Exhaust Rattling Against Trailer Hitch on a Honda Pilot
    Exhaust rattling against a trailer hitch is a common occurrence but it is easily fixed. Exhaust pipes and mufflers hang on rubber isolators. The hangers can usually be manipulated to gain more clearance between the exhaust and the hitch. I have included a link to the right that covers the different fixes for this problem.

    All three ball mounts will fit into the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver that you mentioned.

  • How to Tow Multiple Trailers with a 2003 Acura MDX
    We have you covered here. The Curt Class III, part # 13328, is definitely a good choice for your 2003 Acura MDX. There are some things that need to be taken into account, though. Though the Curt hitch has the highest towing capacity for your vehicle, the only way it can handle 4500 lbs is to be combined with a weight distribution (WD) system. With a WD system, it can tow up to 5000 pounds. Without one, it can only get up to 3500 lbs. For your WD system, I recommend the Blue Ox TrackPro...

  • Stainless Steel Locking Hitch Pin for 2-Inch Class III Curt Hitch 13328
    Curt custom-fit Class III hitch # 13328 is a confirmed fit on your 2007 Honda Pilot. I linked an installation video to guide you through the process. Tools needed are listed in the linked instructions. For a stainless steel hitch lock you can refer to the linked page. The lock you referenced # e98882 will work fine, as will the Bulldog # BD580402. Both have a center span - the inside portion - that measures 2-1/2-inches so both will be as close to a snug 'custom fit' as is possible.
