Still works great! Between the Smyth ute conversion (I installed the hitch while I was cutting the car and had easy access) and the flatbed trailer I’ve hauled furniture, motorcycles, and all kinds of stuff. Nothing has loosened or bent at all! 528624

Volkswagen Jetta

I'll be the first to say it. Mounting a hitch to a Jetta/Golf is sketchy. They say it's good for 200lb tongue weight and 2000lb load capacity; had I not tested it myself I would never have believed it. Four (3/8") bolts through the spare tire well on the left side, one 1/2" bolt and one 3/8" bolt on the right side. All through thin sheet metal. The install direction leave something to be desired. They tell you to square it to the car but there are no easy reference points to square to. I ended up using a magnetic level attached to the hitch, bolting the 1/2" side in and jacking the left side up till level. Then I shot a line down from trunk latch (theoretically center of the trunk) and slightly adjusted center on the hitch. To make sure it was square, I measured from the front of the receiver to the rear of each fenderwell (metal not plastic). I was out 1/32 of an inch so OK. The center of the receiver is your only reference point as nothing else is identical left or right of the receiver. I used black rtv silicone to seal the bolt holes. After install I am a big guy and stood/jumped on the hitch after installing (I'm 300+ lbs.) and no problems stood out. The only thing I didn't like was the 3/8" bolt on the left side deformed the tire well when torquing down to spec. A bigger washer should have been provided here. It's first test came in the form of a 5x8 open trailer with ~900lbs of rain soaked sheetrock. I should say I also used a euro drawbar (does a better job of keeping the trailer level on the low car) and the recommended light harness which I would not recommend for the average user to install (reviewed seperatly C-56175). The trailer is ~500lbs empty. 10 miles round trip to the county dump and back. Up to 60 mph and stop and go and lights. Braking distance was obviously longer (no trailer brakes) and you can definitely feel the trailer (5 speed 1.8 gas turbo car). When I got home I looked for stress cracks, bends and re-torqued all the bolts for piece of mind. The instructions recommend re-torquing the bolts all the time. They should have provided locking washers with the kit or lock nuts, I may change the nuts out or put locking washers on when I get a chance for a little more piece of mind. All in all for the price and since I sold my truck the convenience of being able to tow both my trailers around without having two vehicles is great benefit to me. 179035

I bought this hitch for my 03 Jetta and it worked perfect. I used it to tow a trailer from New Mexico to Michigan. Selecting the correct height hitch was important. 749819

2003 Volkswagen Jetta

Needed a basic hitch for the daughters 2003 VW Jetta 2.0 sedan, she has a small jet ski trailer and a hitch mounted bike rack. This hitch fit both criteria and was moderately priced. We had it installed by our local VW dealer and it went in very easily according to the technician. The design of the hitch makes it almost invisible the way it is tucked up underneath, very clean looking and does not take away from the rear clean OEM appearance. The attached photo was taken at the dealership during installation. I'm sure we could have installed it ourselves but we had it in for service so figured it would be a great time to just handle it. Very happy with the product. 671256

Easy install. Performs exactly as advertised. You will have to buy a special electrical kit to be able to hook up trailer lights. 657628

Great product! Has worked flawlessly and I'm very happy with it. It was also easy to install. Installed on a 2005 Jetta and has been used only for a Thule bike rack. 625461

- C11070

Easy to install. Haven't had a chance to pull anything. But seems stout. Only thing I'd probably add is a plate to the inside of the trunk pan on the vertical bolted side. 581470

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon
    We do have a trailer hitch that fits your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Wagon but # C11070 does not fit. Instead you can use Curt trailer hitch # C11083. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch. Curt also says you have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using this hitch for any...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta GLS
    The reason the Curt Hitch part # C11070 that you referenced won't fit a GLI is because the GLI models have OEM ground effects. The GLS models do not have the ground effects so the # C11070 would fit. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If you are looking to doing any light towing with your vehicle, I would also recommend these items listed below. Wiring Kit # 119178KIT 2 inch Hitch Ball # 19258 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball # 19256

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2005 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
    Both the Curt and the Draw-Tite Class I hitches for your vehicle are very similar in appearance and function. When installed, the receiver on either model would sit just below the bottom of the rear bumper. The available ground clearance below the receiver would be very similar with both models. The main discernible difference between the models is the finish on the hitch itself. The Curt model uses a finish that is much more glossy in appearance. In a vehicle such as yours, the average...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Wiring For 1999 Volkswagen Jetta
    If you have the letter 'M' in the 8th position of your VIN, the trailer hitch I recommend for your 1999 Jetta is part # C11070. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. If your Jetta is the GLI model with the ground effects package the hitch will not work for you. If you have an 'H' in the 8th position of the VIN, the hitch I recommend is part # C11010. This is also a Class l hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. None of these trailer hitches come...

  • Do I Need to Lower Exhaust on 1999 Volkswagen Jetta TDI in Order to Install Curt Hitch 11070
    In order to install Curt Hitch, part # 11070, you will need to undo the exhaust, probably just at the rearmost rubber hanger. This will provide some room to manipulate the hitch into place, and easier access to holes when tightening bolts.

  • Could Hitch from 1999 Volkswagen Jetta Fit 2001 Volkswagen Jetta
    If the 99 year Volkswagen Jetta was the 99.5 mid-year update then yes, a hitch from it like the Curt # C11070 would also fit a 2001 Volkswagen Jetta. If it was an early model Jetta then it would not carry over.

  • Is the Installation Process the Same on a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta as a 2000 Volkswagen Jetta
    Yes, the installation video of the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11070, on the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta is the same for your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta. According to Curt there were no changes in the installation process for this hitch between those years. If you are looking to doing any light towing with your vehicle, I would also recommend these items listed below. Wiring Kit # 119178KIT 2 inch Hitch Ball # 19258 1-7/8 inch Hitch Ball # 19256

  • Will the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24748, Fit a Gas Turbo Model 2002 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8 Turbo
    Actually, all of the available hitches for any model of the 2002 VW Jetta have the same rating. They are rated for 200 pounds tongue weight capacity and 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight. However, they are not interchangeable among models. The mounting locations between models are different. The hitches are designed accordingly based on subtle differences in mounting locations under the vehicle. For a gas turbo model, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, # 11070. It comes with a...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for the 2005 Jetta TDI
    We do have trailer hitches for your 2005 VW Jetta TDI but the only you looked at, part # C11000, is not a fit. If you have the 2005 Volkswagen Jetta TDI New Body, the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24866 will fit.
