This is a very well designed and built hitch. The installation process was much easier than expected. However, my 2016 RDX had a significant amount of rust in the threaded holes in the under body of the vehicle. I needed to purchase a M12-1.25 thread tap to clean up the holes and the bolts went in without any effort. The finished receiver looks nice and does not stick out like many other hitches that I've seen. I would highly recommend this hitch to anyone that is looking for ease of installation, quick shipping and best of all, a great price point. 653951

Just leased new Acura RDX and wanted to install a hitch and bike rack. E=Trailer's web site and customer service (Christine) were top notch. I loved the personal attention and the You Tube videos on how to install the hitch. It took me about an hour but I was able to get underneath the car and follow the instructions. The handle nuts are the key to holding this hitch in place. It helps to bend them for easier access. Once you do that, it's a snap. 225149

Meets or exceeds all of my expectations. Install was even easier than I thought it would be. The dealer wanted $1059 for a hitch (with harness) installed. You have to be kidding me. Since this will only be used for a bike rack I didn't need a harness anyway. First, this hitch wasn't listed on the 2016 page for the RDX but since I didn't think the mid-model refresh really changed anything structurally in the back of the vehicle I ordered it from the the 2015 page. As I hoped, it fit perfectly, just like the 2013-2015. When I ordered the only hitch listed for the 2016 RDX was an 1 1/4" model and I wanted the 2" model. The install went even better than I though it might. I did the work by myself and saw were some others had used zip-ties to hold up one side while working on the other. I found that wasn't necessary for me. I was able to lift the hitch up to the approx. position and hold it there with one hand while I threaded the M12 screw into the factory weld nut with the other. Then I scooted over the other side while still holding up the hitch and threaded the other M12 screw in. From there it was just like the video show. By the way, the videos are absolutely a great way see how to do the install ahead of time. It makes things so much easier to watch somebody do the install while explaining what they are doing instead of having to read through installation instructions. I did put a little loctite on the screws just for a belt and suspenders caution although with the torque specs. for the M12 & 1/2-13 screws there is probably close to a zero chance they would ever come loose. Although I didn't time myself but it couldn't have been more than 20 minutes to install once I had the tools laid out, hitch unpacked and started the install. And I absolutely love the way the hitch looks on the RDX. Super clean with only the receiver showing. It always has bothered me to see vehicles where the supporting tubes are clearly visible viewing from the back. I want to give a shout out to Etrailer also. The hitch was ordered on Sunday and I was hoping it would ship on Monday so I could have it by the weekend and get it installed. Monday came and I had no word of it shipping so I called Etrailer. They said it was in stock and would probably ship on Tuesday. I was a little disappointed since that meant I wouldn't get it until the following Monday. But, when the shipping noticed came from UPS on Tuesday I saw it was being shipped 3 Day Select so I would get it Friday and could install it Saturday as I had hoped. I don't know if my phone call had anything to do with it or if it is standard policy to ship 3 day but it was a very pleasant surprise. I loaded up my new 1UP USA bike rack on the hitch and it works and fits great while being rock solid. In the future if I need any towing products I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Etrailer or Curt. Highly recommended. 212750

I installed the Curt trailer hitch P/N C13130 to my new 2015 Acura RDX AWD. It took about 20 - 30 minutes, I took my time. It looks good. It fits flush with the underneath of the rear bumper of the vehicle (although, I don't know if you can really call it a bumper in this new vehicles) or the frame of the vehicle. Just follow the instructions of the movie clip provided by Etrailer. The wiring connection is no problem either. I used P/N 56008. The trailer connector in the vehicle is located (when looking from the rear) opened tail gate, there is a panel on the left side mid-way of the tail gate. Pop the panel out. There is a blue connector tucked inside approximately 10" from the edge of the opening going forward. (NOTE: Acura recommends that you remove the negative connector end from the battery before doing this, which will reset your navigation system, but you can reset it again after connecting the negative cable back to the battery). Plug the trailer wiring into the blue connector inside the opening . Plug the large fuse (10 Amp) into the red fuse holder in the supplied wiring, make sure it sits all the way in. The black box that came with the wiring harness is the light converter. I placed mine by attaching it to the inside frame with the double adhesive tape that came with it, just make sure you clean the frame of the vehicle with alcohol before applying it. You can feel the frame by sticking your hand inside the opening, towards the back, and as a precaution I tied it with a nylon strap. Route the rest of the wire with the connector at the end for the trailer hook up through the lower, rear foam located in the tire compartment and tuck the pig tail into the tire area. When towing a trailer just open the tail gate, bring the connector outside and close the tail gate. The rubber seal around the tail gate is very flexible and will not pinch the wires. Lastly, inside the engine compartment there is a fuse box with all the fuses. Inside the plastic lid there are additional fuses. I used a 20 Amp fuse and inserted in the 4th slot, then reconnected the battery, and I am done. Please note: I have not towed as yet and can't assert any thing I have done will work. I am planning, not to tow more than 1500 lbs. My writing herein is for information only of my own installation. I DO NOT RECOMMEND OR IMPLY ANY USE OF TRAILER PARTS, ELECTRICAL MATERIALS IN ANY VEHICLE. 186275

The Acura dealership charges $750 for a trailer hitch installed. I was hesitant to buy my own hitch for installation because I thought something that expensive must be really hard to do. NOT AT ALL! Thank-you etrailer.com for the video that gave me the confidence to install this on my 2015 RDX. Written Instructions were easy to follow. Took about 30 minutes to unbox, install, and breakdown the box it was shipped in. Once installed, this hitch is almost undetectable (looks great). I am a 42-year-old woman and did need my husband’s help to hold the hitch in place while I tightened the bolts. I purchased this hitch for use with a bike rack and it looks and works great!! 489491

Well Made product. I installed it in about 1/2 hour. I will be using it to carry bicycles. I have not ordered the CURT bike rack as of yet, but will be soon. My hopes for the CURT Trailer hitch is that it is well painted and won't look like a pile of rust in a couple of years like other hitches I have seen, I am certainly happy with what I have so far. Thank You 516856


Comments
Due to its location under the vehicle, the hitch CAN get dinged up over time from gravel or other road debris. If the powder coating is chipped, rust can set in, its unfortunately unavoidable. Youll want to give the hitch a quick once over twice a year or so and check for the beginnings of any corrosion. If any corrosion is found, a quick cleaning with some sandpaper and a shot of rust-inhibiting spray paint will keep the rust in check.

The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver for my 2016 Acura RDX arrived in excellent condition and was quite easy to install. The instructions that came with the Receiver were easy to follow but I did have a problem. The handle nut stripped out while tightening torque specs. I have a Craftsman Commercial Micro Adjusting Torque Control Wrench. I called eTrailer and they assured me that the torque specifications in the instructions were correct. Based on their assurance, I can only conclude that my torque control wrench is not calibrated correctly and the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver deserves 5 stars. 444588

I watched the video to make sure I knew what to do. I have a 2017 RDX Acura. It has two braces on the rear bumper that your video did not show. I had to disconnect them to get the bumper to fit. I could not re-connect the braces, so I am hoping the hitch holds the rear bumper tight for me. Other than that the hitch went on very easy. 874265

My second Curt hitch receiver in a few years. Service once again was great. However, the fit wasy not perfect... this receiver rubbed against the twin tailpipes at the rear. Minor bending of the tail pipes provided acceptable clearance, but this should not have been necessary. 811911

As usual on every Curt Hitch I have purchased they always are well made and fit exact. The hardest part was trying to find the factory plug on my 2015 RDX for the trailer wiring harness. Its buried behind the interior service door shown in the directions, behind the left rear quarter panel. Its further back then what it appears, you can only feel for it and it does not pull out. Make sure you go to the fuse box under the hood and put the fuse in or your lights will not work. I used a 2" drop down receiver and flipped it over and that still seems slightly low for my trailer with 15" wheels so depending on your trailer you might need a 3" drop reversed. 809826

Hitch fit perfectly. Very easy installation - just 4 bolts. Was a little difficult because I'm 72 and had to lay on my back since my son and I were installing the hitch in my garage - no lift. The Curt video was right on with regard to the installation of the electrical connection. Total time for both the mechanical part and electrical was 45 minutes. 809737

Next to a magnetic car sticker, this is the easiest vehicle accessory I have installed. The hardest part is preparing the vehicle. My Acura is 5 years old and has been driven during the Northeast winters. The factor threaded mounting holes were corroded. It took about 20 minutes of wire brushing, WD40, and chasing the threads with a bolt I got at the hardware store to clean up the threads. Installation was just like the video. Just angle the hitch up in place. I used a jack stand to hold the hitch while I could get the bolts started. Price was good and delivery was reasonably quick. 806596

  • Trailer Hitch that Fits 2019 Acura RDX
    The Curt hitch part # C13130 does not fit the 2019 Acura RDX. For a hitch we do know is a fit for the 2019 RDX we have the Draw Tite part # 76268 which is also a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening. There was some confusion at one point and the Curt was thought to be a fit for the 2019 model but now we know it does not fit.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2016 Acura RDX
    We always recommend using a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver over the 1-1/4" size because they have higher weight ratings and because you can use a wider variety of bike racks. Technically since the 1-1/4" is smaller it will be less noticeable but realistically there isn't that big of a visual difference between the 2 sizes.

    A stabilizer strap will attach to the hitch accessory and then attach to the vehicle to provide support for the accessory to help prevent some of the shock from bumps from being transferred to the hitch.
