Purchased this hitch so I could carry my mountain bike on a bike rack after using a truck mounted rack and was very happy I did. The Curt hitch took about 30 min to install and was ready to rock. The included installation "fishing wire" thing was a lifesaver. It's very solid and kept my bike rack in place. Recommended! 376297

Awesome hitch!! Exceptionally easy to install with included detailed and very easy to follow instructions. Would easily purchase another Curt hitch and would highly recommend others to do so. However, the vehicle I installed my hitch on recently bit the dust. So I removed the hitch in case I buy a similar vehicle (2003 - 2005 Honda Civic). If not, I have a great used Curt hitch for sale if anyone is interested. 683630

Excellent product, very high quality. I was able to install it in under 30 minutes. The included fish wire tool made threading the mounting block and bolt very easy, they dropped right in to the mounting hole. I am using this hitch mainly for my 1upUSA bike rack. The hitch and rack look awesome on my 2001 Honda Civic LX. Thanks etrailer for the great product and fast shipping! 349807

Very easy to fit into place, didn't have to remove anything off the car. Instructions were clear, video was helpful, and the fishing wire included was especially helpful. I took some advice from a reviewer who said they wish they had this on some kind of jack to get it into position and avoid pushing the bolts back inside. Placed it on a regular floor jack and lined up the holes, fell right into place. 318484

This product was easily installed on my 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid and it will be used for a bicycle rack. This hitch is well-made and very solid. Etrailer included the bolt fisher wire without me asking them to and this was a huge help. I installed it myself in under an hour. I got the general idea by watching Youtube. I backed my car onto my oil change ramps and followed the diagram instructions. Of note, the Civic hybrid has a plastic heat shield under the rear driver's side but this was easy to move out of the way after removing a couple plastic screws under the bumper. 275668

I primarily chose this hitch receiver for a Honda Civic 2004 because I didn't want to punch notches or drill holes into the chassis as part of the installation Although I wasn't able to jack up the car for installation, it was only moderately difficult to accomplish within about an hour. I am about a month into using it, and so far it has performed well. 222752

After receiving hitch, (on time, in good order) I peeked under my very low rear end ('03 Honda Civic Hybrid) and was concerned. A skid panel covered one side of the mount and muffler blocked access hole on other side. I couldn't be sure it would work and put off doing the job till I'd have time to deal with problems. Today I finally had a whole day of leisure (if necessary) and it really wasn't too difficult at all. Of course I had to jack it up and put it on stands and I did have to remove the plastic skid panel and cut/notch it to fit around the hitch bracket after it's installation and I found that fishing the spring backwards on the muffler side solved that trickiness. Once I got going on it, about two hours. Good product, good fit and the fishing solution is really cool! Thanks. Tim Williams, Clearlake, CA It's in, its solid 217981

I wanted to start out by complimenting etrailer for their customer service. I ordered the hitch and promptly received an email and a phone call letting me know there was a little delay as the hitch was in route to them and they wanted to know if waiting was ok or if I wanted to change my order. I was very impressed by the the extra effort. This hitch will be used for a bike rack and waiting a couple of extra days in the middle of winter was no perfectly fine. I ordered the Curt partially due to the fact that there was no drilling for the Civic install and it was indeed very simple to install. The hitch was well packed and fit the car exactly as it should. The bolts were easy to fish through with the included wire and the bolt holes in the hitch lined up very well with the holes in the car frame. Like I mentioned, the install was very easy. Once I had the car up on jack stands, the install was literally 15 minutes. It took me longer to get the jack out and the car lifted than the actual hitch install. Easy install and great customer service. 172910

Product was exactly as advertised. I very much liked the fact that I did not have to drill any holes in my car and I was willing to pay more for this hitch versus other cheaper hitches Installation instructions were clear and installation was relatively easy with one exception: You have to thread the two carriage bolts and spacers from one hole in the car frame rail to another using a provide fishwire. This proved to be a pretty tricky task despite the detailed instructions. I would have appreciated a video demonstrating this. 85260

We are glad to hear you are happy with the install. We actually do have a fish-wire tutorial video. Though it may not be helpful to you at this point, I am sure others that read your review will be glad to have it. http:/www.etrailer.com/tv-fish_wire.aspx

The Curt Trailer Hitch was easy to install and it has proven very sturdy in a recent intrastate trip to get to some trails in Wisconsin. I highly recommend this hitch for the Honda Civic Hybrid. 54588

The entire hitch came in one box, and bolted right onto the car with no drilling. The instructions were clear, and we used the youtube videos to help with the wiring. The installation took about 20 minutes for the hitch and 3 hours for the electrical. Hitch is installed. Thanks etrailer! 48606

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Hitch?


  • What is the Difference Between Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitches for a 2005 Honda Civic
  • Neither the Draw-Tite hitch # 24706 or Curt hitch # C11204 require any exhaust modification for installation so they are the same in that respect. With the Draw-Tite hitch there are access holes on the bottoms of the frame rails that need to be enlarged to install the hitch. A drill can be used but you could also use a file or other tool to enlarge the holes if they are not large enough for the hardware to fit through. You will not have to drill any new holes.

  • Which Hitches will Fit a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid
  • The hitch you were looking at, part # 24719, will not fit your 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid. It fits 2003-2005 Civic Si only. The hitch that will fit your 2005 Civic Hybrid is part # 11204. It is a hitch from Curt. I have added a link to the hitch and the instructions below.

  • What Hitch Will be Least Visible on a 2004 Honda Civic EX 4 Door
  • The Curt hitch, part # 11204 will have the least amount of material visible underneath the car. They Curt design puts the cross tube further back which means only the receiver tube will be easily visible. The do this by using the tow loop on the vehicle as another anchor point. I have included a link to the instructions for the hitch below. The hitch comes with all the necessary hardware to attach to the car as well as a drawbar, pin and clip. It is a Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitch and will...

  • Trailer Hitch Fits for 2005 Honda Civic and 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid
  • The trailer hitch fits for the 2005 Honda Civic are not affected by whether the vehicle is a hybrid or not although for some other vehicle models this does matter. The fits do vary between the 2- and 4-door non-hatchback versions and the Si version. All of the hitches offered for either vehicle version are light-duty Class I types that can be seen using the included link.

  • Options for Carrying Three Bikes with 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid
  • To carry three bikes on your 2004 Civic Hybrid, your best bet would be to use a trunk-mounted rack like the Thule Raceway, part # TH9002PRO. The Raceway is extremely simple to install and remove, with only 4 cables attaching it to the vehicle. Instead of the usual straps that need to be adjusted, the Raceway uses ratcheting cables that adjust in seconds. If the pedal trailer you are speaking of is the sort that bolts on to the seat post of a bike, I doubt that it would work with the rack....

  • Is Fishwire Tool Included With Curt Hitch For 2001 Honda Civic
  • The Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C11204 has the fishwire tool needed for installation of the hitch. This hitch has a 1-1/4 X 1-1/4 inch receiver opening, and is a Class l hitch, and is a good fit for your 2001 Honda Civic 2 or 4 door if it is not a hatchback. The hitch will not fit Si models. All non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt.

Draw-Tite # 24706 Curt # C11204 All of these hitches have a tongue weight of 200lbs. and a 2,000lbs. towing weight. What sets them apart besides price is that the Curt hitch will require the use of a stabilization strap # 18050 with any non trailer load, like a bike rack of cargo carrier.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2005 Honda Civic
  • For your 2005 Honda Civic LX 4 dr Sedan, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24706. Because of differences in the rear exhaust and fascia area under the back bumper, the Draw-Tite # 24719 only fits the Civic Si models. If you click the provided link, you can see an installation video.

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid
  • I have a hitch solution for you, but the Hitch part # 24719 that you referenced will not fit hybrid models. You will want the Curt Hitch part # C11204 as this hitch is confirmed to fit your 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid. For trailer wiring you would want the wiring harness part # C59496. For a ball mount you would want the part # C45521, for a hitch pin you would want the part # F-4, for a 1-7/8 inch ball you would want part # A-80.

  • Why Is a Power Wire Needed For a Trailer Wiring Harness On a 2002 Honda Civic
  • The power wire for a trailer wiring harness like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C56341 is needed on your 2002 Honda Civic because the vehicle's lighting circuits are not capable of handling the additional load a set of trailer lights would require. If you were to use a non powered trailer wiring harness you would likely short out the vehicle's lighting circuits. If you have not already made your mind up on a trailer hitch, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch...

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid
  • The issue that prevents the # 24706 hitch from installing on a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid is the exhaust location. However there is a hitch solution that will work for you. Check out the Curt Trailer Hitch # 11204. This hitch is confirmed to fit hybrid models also. I attached installation instructions for this hitch also.

  • Installation Details for Curt Class I Hitch # C11204 on 2005 Honda Civic 4 door
  • You are correct, the spacer block and bolt will need to be fished through the frame. I have linked you to a video that explains this technique. If you need to lower the exhaust a bit in order to access the mounting holes, I have linked you to a video showing how this is done. Simply spray the rubber isolator and mounts with a spray lubricant like WD-40 and slide the mount out of the isolator. I have also linked you to the hitch installation instructions, as well as to an FAQ article...

  • Will the Curt # C11204 Fit a 2004 Honda Civic with a MagnaFlow Exhaust System
  • As long as your MagnaFlow Exhaust System, like part # MF15712, on your 2004 Honda Civic is similar in size and location to your OEM exhaust system then you should have no issues installing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11204. Even if your aftermarket system is slightly larger you can manipulate the hangers a little to accommodate the trailer hitch. I have linked the instructions for the trailer hitch for you to look through to help you determine fitment.
