E Trailer supplied a complete hitch kit for my VW Passat. It was so easy to install I did it myself in about an hour. Highest rating review for this product and this company. 297947

Exact same hitch I bought for my last car. I found the performance of the hitch on my old car to be excellent. Only issue I had with the hitch itself was that the finish didn't hold up. the receiver tube and flange were quit rusty when I sold the car which was 3 years after it was installed. 576095

Natalie, was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole ordering process. she googled and verified with her vender to make sure the order matched my Volkswagen. I have never installed a hitch on a car before and was very worried if I was going to get the right things. She even emailed me letting me know my that my order was delivered to my door this afternoon. If you call and order as for NATALIE. 690915

The hitch conceals well and is under the bumper enough that it won't be accidentally kick when walking by unless the ball mount is left in place. The finish seems to be holding up well and is not rusting, but it's only been through two MI winters thus far. The install was fairly simple with only minor cutting needed. 358049

Installation was a little tricky, getting the bolts to line up with the plates, but the trimming of the fascia was easier than I expected. All in all took me about an hour to do by myself in my garage. Feels really solid, and seems to be really secure with my Kuat rack attached. Would recommend! 384347

I own a 2012 VW Passat. The hitch works great but it sits too low to the ground. Once I have 2 fat tire bikes on my Thule rack, or two heavier people in the back seats without bikes, the hitch will drag on the ground if there is ANY incline. Now when I load the bikes on I have to pull the car onto the street so that I dont drag and dig into my asphalt. Wish they would have come up with a better design. The hitch itself works great and I have no complaints. 666477

Nice clean installation with clear easy to follow instructions. This hitch installation is unusual because there isn't any need to fish bolts into obscure locations in the subframe. The crossframe of the hitch is totally hidden from sight and from aerodynamic drag. The only part that shows is the receiver tube and safety chain rings. Installation on the newer Passats requires trimming an added aero panel. My 2017 R-Line has this panel and my wife's 2016 SE has it. My daughter's 2013 TDI does not have it. See enclosed pictures for trim locations. Sorry I did not measure exact dimensions. Mock installing the panel and a sharpie helps to get the trim necessary. All in all this is a great hitch. It installs easily and tows very well indeed. 334401

Product is HIGH quality. Installed on a 2017 VW Passat SE. Two comments regarding install, apart from instructions that came with hitch. My SE has the light package. I do not know if what we discovered under the fascia trim just to the right of the exhaust is exclusive to the SE or not. There was an electrical junction box with a number of plugs attached. This was screwed into the fascia. This box had to be unscrewed from the fascia and relocated without screw attachment once the hitch was installed. There simply was not room to reattach the junction box after hitch install. (See photo) Also, the underbody trim cover that runs from the fascia to just north of the spare tire well had to be trimmed differently than what previous installers have suggested. Note attached photo. I fall into the novice installer group. 60 mins. is a pipe dream. The etrailer folks provide directions from Curt. If you are like me, you do not have a torque wrench, a dremel or rotary tool to attach a cut-off wheel, or T-15 & T-25 torxbit sockets. Things to know: You can rent (free of charge) a torque wrench from [local Auto Parts store]. For the dremel, I used a hacksaw blade in a simple handle that can be purchased at Home Depot. The torxbit sockets puzzled me. Don't spend the money on them if you don't already have them. Use a star bit inserted into compatible screwdriver handle. 367670

I'm pleased with this hitch as I needed to pull my 5x8 trailer with my racing kart on it to the track. Made the mechanic watch the video to get a feel for what we were about to tackle and the install was a breeze.. definitely a 2 person job. 867956

This tow hitch has held up well, it's still as solid as the day I put in on my car. I'll admit I've probably towed more then I should in my 2014 Passat. I've moved my Vtx1800 in a 15ft trailer and zero turn lawn mower frequently. 802610

Bought the hitch for my mountain bike. Installed it in three to four hours with the frustration of having big forearms trying to reach between the frame and the bumper. The installation video was a great reference but having a friend with a lift in their garage is not practical. This is my second hitch that I have bought from Etrailer and I will definitely buy one again. 800430

Fast Delivery. The directions were easy to follow. Everything went together beautifully. The vehicle itself is a little low for a hitch but other than rubbing the ground as I leave my driveway I don't have any problems with the hitch or the wiring harness. 767721

First of all if you buy this product, be sure to reinforce the welds on the bumper brackets supplied, the nuts are barely tack welded on and snap off easily. Secondly this kit does not come with the pin. Lastly the bolts that go up to the brackets above the bumper beam should be at least a half inch longer, they are not the right size. 758746


Comments
I reached out to my contact at Curt, and they said it sounds like the brackets with the weld nuts may need to be flipped over in order for the bolt to install properly. I also asked them about the weld nuts snapping, and they confirmed this is not an issue they have seen before. My contact suggested to make sure to tighten the bolts proportionally in order to minimize the tension placed on the first weld nut.

Both the trailer hitch and wiring harness have worked flawlessly for the past year. I have towed a loaded trailer along the East Coast through extreme environmental conditions ranging from; high heat, heavy rain and snow, dust and sand without any resulting problems. It is comforting to know that the rear trailer lights are working while towing a high-end motor vehicle through a heavy storm when visibility is poor. 607385

  • Hitch Recommendation For 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT Model
    I do have a great option for the 2018 Volkswagen Passat GT but the Eco-Hitch part # 306-X7317 is not a fit at this time. I contacted Curt and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11234 is a fit for the GT model. It is also a concealed cross tube design much like the Eco-Hitch design. The only difference is the Curt hitch is a 1-1/4" and the Eco-Hitch is 2" so the weight capacity is lower. The Curt hitch can handle 200 lb tongue weight but that is enough to carry a bike rack or cargo...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver That Fits 2014 VW Passat TDI
    While there is a 2 inch trailer hitch recevier that fits your 2014 Volkswagen Passat TDI, I checked with Curt and can verify the only one of their hitches that fits your Passat is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11234. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, but has a concealed crosstube so the only part of the hitch you see is the receiver, as you can see by the accompanying photo I added of this hitch on a 2014 Passat. As for a 2 inch hitch, there is one that fits,...

  • Is Stabilizer Strap Really Required when Using Trailer Hitch on 2014 Volkswagen Passat
    The stabilizer strap like part # 18050 is required by Curt on their lighter duty trailer hitches like the # C11234 you referenced when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a video that shows exactly how it is used typically. Since I personally wouldn't want to mess with using the strap I would recommend you go with the Draw Tite hitch part # 24880 instead as it does not have this requirement. These hitches are pretty simple to install. A DIYer like yourself would...

  • Recommended Hitch With Minimal Fascia Trimming for 2012 VW Passat
    There are twoavailable Class I hitches for a VW Passat, the Curt # C11234 and the Draw-Tite # 24880. Both hitches will require that the underbody panel be trimmed to about the same degree, but the good news is that the trimmed portion is not visible from the rear of the vehicle. If you look at the diagrams I edited for you, you can see the amount of trimming required for each hitch, plus a photo showing the Curt hitch installed on a vehicle. The Draw-Tite would look almost identical...

  • Is Drilling Required to Install Curt Trailer Hitch 11234 on a 2013 Volkswagen Passat Diesel

There is some trimming required on an underbody panel and this is covered in the instructions as well. This hitch comes with the appropriate ball mount, hitch pin, and clip.

  • Availability of 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver to Carry Bike Rack on 2012 VW Jetta
    Although none of our hitch manufacturers offer a 2 inch receiver that would work with a VW Passat, I do have an option for you. I would agree with wanting to avoid using an adapter. Using an adapter would lower the 200 lb tongue weight cacpcity of the hitch by half to 100 lbs. THis would mean that the weight of the racks and the bikes paced upon it could not exceed 100 lbs. Also, Yakima states in the instructions for most of their bike racks that they do not recommend using a hitch adapter. Rather...

  • Options for Carrying Three Bikes with 2013 VW Passat
    All the hitches offered for your Passat are Class I hitches.

You still have some options. You could install a hitch like the Draw-Tite Class I, part # 24880 and a Class I compatible bike rack like the Swagman # S63360. You could carry the remaining bike on the roof using a roof rack and a...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8L and Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack
    First, since you want to use a hitch for a bike rack I recommend avoiding the Curt hitch because it has a special requirement when using the hitch with a bike rack. Per the Curt warranty requirements you would have to use stabilization strap # 18050 when using a bike rack or cargo carrier. On the Sherpa there is no good place to attach the strap. I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 24880 which is a confirmed fit for the 2017 Volkswagen Passat 1.8. This hitch does not have a strap requirement. Regarding...

    For what you're using the hitch for, you'd be fine with a low-cost option such as the Draw-Tite Class I receiver, part # 24880 but if you were planning on also using the hitch as a mounting location for a bike rack or a cargo carrying tray, you might be better off going with a 2 inch receiver like what would be provided by the EcoHitch # 306-X7317. There are many more accessory options that are compatible with a 2 inch receiver, so if you were going to use the hitch for something other...

  • Removing Clips to Take Fascia Off of 2017 Volkswagen Passat to Install Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver

  • Will the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Fit a Class I Trailer Hitch and Hold 4 Bikes on 2012 VW Passat
    Class I trailer hitches like # 24880 can only support 2 bikes even if the rack can hold more. The issue is not the weight of the bikes but how far the weight is from the receiver. A third or more bikes on a Class I hitch puts too much stress on the hitch and can result in loss of hitch and damage to the vehicle. It is like using a long bar to loosen a lug nut when changing a tire. The Yakima RidgeBack, # Y02458, can fit a Class I trailer hitch but it would be limited to carrying 2 bikes...
