The hitch fit perfectly. No complaints there, but just an FYI, if your automobile is older or driven alot on gravel, grab a tap to clean out the threads on the car, it will save you some curse words.

I bought this hitch for my 2017 Kia Forte ES. It took me about 45 minutest to install it. The directions via Youtube were easy. The only thing to note is that you don't have to loosen the tail pipe as directed as it fit right over the top. The screw holes in the body of the car aligned perfectly. The installation of the tail light kit took longer then the hitch to install. All hardware fit well. The clips (or connectors) that are attached to the rear car lights were exactly correct. If I were to come up with a negative, it would be that the screws that attach the center of the tow bar are long and hang down. I hear them scraping the ground when I pull out of my driveway. Not a fault of the manufacturer, I just have to go under and cut them shorter. I use the bar all the time. I bought a trailer at Tractor Supply. I have a 1 7/8 and a 2 inch ball as I find I need both of them. Great product and company. I highly recommend.

When I received my order, I was outstanding by the professionalism of etrailer team to keep me update for any changes during the shipping process. I was amazed by the time that I spent to install the hitch. The only issue that I have was to make a perfect cut-out in my pan cover on the left side of the trunk which is located underneath. Otherwise it looked great with the rack bike. Total spend to put everything together with the tools ready 50 minutes. I have no regrets.

Unbelievable! I am 70 years old and it took only 45 minutes to install the hitch. It was so well engineered that none of the bolts were hard to thread in and tighten. The only small issue was the weight was a little bit of a struggle for me - but I got it !

Works well with what I need a hitch for. And many of people have asked where did I get it at and I refer them to you guys. Install was simple and easy and took no time at all. Thanks for the follow up as well. When I need something you guys are first choice.

Installation took 45 minutes for the receiver, fit like a glove. Wiring harness went in easy, the stretch to the passenger side was a little bit tight but was able to be tucked away with some doing. Instructions made sense, follow them!

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Can a 2017 Kia Forte Tow a Boat Trailer
    You can put a trailer hitch on your 2017 Kia Forte and for that I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11368 if you have a sedan or part # C11395 if you have a hatchback. However, Kia does not recommend towing a trailer with this vehicle according to the owner's manual. If you choose to ignore this then in order to tow a trailer you are also going to need a trailer wiring harness part # C53KR, a ball mount part # C45521, and a hitch ball part # A-80 for 1-7/8" or part #...

  • Can 2017 Kia Forte Sedan be Used to Tow 300 lbs - 500 lbs
    If you are planning on towing 300 - 500 lbs then we do have the equipment for your 2017 Kia Forte but please note that in the online version of the owner's manual (page 5-91) it states that Kia does not recommend using your vehicle for trailer towing. So the decision to tow will be entirely up to you and you need to check all of the weight ratings but it might be worth looking into a different vehicle if you plan on towing often. With that being said, I recommend using the Curt Trailer...

  • 2015 Kia Forte Hatchback Trailer Hitch Recommendation
    The 2015 Kia Forte hatchback is referred to as the Forte5. For a hitch confirmed to fit this vehicle you would want the part # C11395. 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 a...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2016 Kia Forte EX Sedan with Chrome Exhaust Tip
    A factory exhaust tip is taken into account when a hitch receiver is designed. So the Curt # C11368 will fit your 2016 Kia Forte EX Sedan as long as the exhaust is from the factory. You should know that using the Curt Class I hitch receiver will require the use of a support strap # 18050 for any non-trailer loads like a bike rack. You can use the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24903 instead which doesn't require the strap. If you're going to be towing with your Kia you can use # 3593 for...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Kia Forte S
    Curt, the manufacturer of trailer hitch # C11368 lists it as a fit for all models of the 2017 Kia Forte so that does include the S model. 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 non-trailer...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Carrying Manual Wheelchair on a 2017 Kia Forte
    Both hitches available for your 2017 Kia Forte, the Draw-Tite # 24903 and Curt # C11368, have tongue weight ratings of 200 lbs. If by manual wheelchair you're talking about a standard wheelchair that is your basic design and can fold up then I don't think that will weigh enough to really make a difference and your Forte should be able to handle that weight just fine. I recommend going with the Curt # C11368 simply because we have found that they tend to have better welds and a thicker...

  • Can A 2015 Kia Forte Pull a Jet Ski
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C11368 has a 2,000 lb weight capacity therefore so long as the weight of the jet ski and trailer do not exceed this then you will be fine. However, the issue is that Kia does not recommend towing with your 2015 Kia Forte so that will be up to you to decide whether or not you abide by this recommendation. In order to complete your towing setup you will need the following: Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness part # C53KR (Sedan Only) Curt...

  • Is a Trailer Hitch Visible on a 2016 Kia Forte
    Curt hitch # C11368 will be partially visible on your 2016 Kia Forte. The receiver will be visible and part of the crosstube. But the vehicle sits pretty low to the ground meaning that it would only be visible at certain, low angles. Of you are looking at hitches because you need to carry bikes then you might consider a trunk mount rack instead. With a trunk mount rack there is no hitch and there is no permanent installation. You can put the rack on and take it off as needed. I have...

  • Can I Tow a Trailer with my 2017 Kia Forte EX
    We do have the equipment to tow with your 2017 Kia Forte, which is primarily due to consumer demand rather than hard to find towing information. You are also correct that per the owner's manual (page 5-91) it states that Kia does not recommend using your vehicle for trailer towing. I can't recommend towing with this vehicle since the manufacturer says not to and we can't provide a towing vehicle weight capacity. I can provide the weight capacity of the # C11368 which is 200 pounds maximum...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2014 Kia Forte
    The owner's manual for your 2014 Kia Forte EX only states that they do not recommend towing a trailer. It doesn't say you can't but it also doesn't give any capacity information. But given that the weight of your trailer is all of 400 to 500 pounds even your small car would be fine towing it. With Curt trailer hitch # C11368 installed the top of the receiver opening will be about 1 inch or so below the bottom of the rear fascia. Measure up from the ground to a point about 1 inch below...

    We have a large selection of 2-bike racks that will work well with the Curt Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11368 that you have installed on your 2017 Kia Forte. There isn't going to be a 2-bike rack available that features a total length of less than 17 inches, as this wouldn't allow for enough space for the two bikes to sit side-by-side. Are you needing the 17 inch maximum distance for clearance with something like a garage door? One of the shorter 2-bike racks we have available...
