2004 Chevrolet Malibu Classic

Couldn't be happier with my purchase! My order was filled and shipped right away. There were three hitches that fit my car and it was nice to see a rating scale used for a degree of difficulty on installation. I chose a more difficult install to get a higher tongue weight rating. The result exceeded my expectations! Great hitch that was a custom fit for my car. I was concerned about clearance with the muffler running parallel to the bumper, but the install was awesome. No struggle with placement and when the muffler needs replacing, all kinds of room and no hassle. Great product! 502721

Works great, perfect fit on my car, part of my frame needed touchup but the mounts were all good. Use it for a utility trailer to haul my 800 lb Yamaha 1300 around. Does a good job, Thanks 695620

Overall I'm very satisfied with my experience with etrailer.com. From my initial contact to receiving the product within a couple of days. Install was a breeze, just bolted up unit as per instructions and drilled 5th hole to complete, the entire process took maybe 40-45 minutes. This hitch is perfect for my short towing needs, within my price point and is nicely made. 664957

Fast delivery, easy install. One hole to drill. Had it bolted on and a trailer hooked up and rolling within an hour after delivery. 45503

What a great product! I spent quite a bit of time on the net and this hitch is by far the best buy I could find. Their competitor was about $10 cheaper but that was a Class I. This is a Class II and it includes the reciever too, so nothing else to buy but the ball, not included with the other brands. Installation went very well, took about an hour. I thought the fishwire would be the hardest part but it was so easy. Put the wire through the plate, screw the bolt into the coil and in about a minute it was in place! Nice! This is the best deal you will find. Very satisfied! 36647

  • How to Get Bolts into 2002 Chevy Malibu Frame to Install Hitch
    To get the install hardware into the frame rails of your 2002 Chevy Malibu to install the Curt hitch part # C12027 will require using the fishwire method. This basically requires feeding the wire through the access points of the frame so that you can attach bolts to the fishwire and then pull the bolts into place.

  • Modifications Required to Install Curt Class II Receiver on 2003 Chevy Malibu
    The Curt Class II Receiver Hitch, part # 12027 bolts to the vehicle in 5 places. Once four of the bolts are in place, the hitch is used as a template to locate and drill the hole for the fifth bolt. No modifications to the bumper or frame are required, other than drilling the one hole to accept the 1/2 inch carriage bolts. A fish wire is provided to run the carriage bolts and block spacers into the vehicle frame. I have provided a link to the installation instructions for you to review.
