The hitch has a lot of space inside the box without any inserts protecting the hitch. Good thing there is no major damage that could have prevented a good install. Installation - Detailed & easy to follow for DIY. Video helped a lot. Product - look good as described. I like the part where the hitch is hidden & flushed on the bumper. 4 star overall. It could have been 5 if the Packaging is good. Now, time to buy a better (platform) bike rack.

2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

Just installed yesterday, haven't had a chance to try out yet, but quality is there, feels solid. Install was straightforward as others have shared, similar hangups with foam on bumper being too thick making reinstall of fascia difficult. As my car is three years old, removing bumper fasteners was a bit precarious (be very careful or have spares available). Bumper bar had also seized to bolts a bit on one side but after removing all nuts and a little wiggling it came free easy. I just held the bumper up to figure out cut, had to cut a little deeper as some stated in order to fit. With this particular hitch you could get away with cutting two narrow slits that will fit around hitch since it is not one solid bar where it elbows but two plates. Overall very happy with this purchase, can't wait to put it to use!

So the hitch itself is great. This hitch fits several years of Subaru Outbacks. Mine is a 2012 and the videos and instructions had a differences from mine. First the instructions lead you to believe that you trim the bumper clip off center from the center hole but you trim it exactly in the center. The video shows you unbolting the back clip from the vehicle body but on a 2012 there are no bolts. The biggest problem with the instructions is that they say to trim bumper clip 4.5" deep on my car that didn't work at all. I've attached a photo that shows what I trimmed, it was almost 6"and that was barely deep enough. I also left the foam piece off because the plate that mounts to car is approx. .375" thick and there's no accommodation for the thickness. Between the deeper bumper trim and thickness of the foam it was very difficult to replace the rear bumper clip. The hitch seems very well made and finished. This style seems better than one that bolts to the frame underneath with no need to drop part of the exhaust, cut part of exhaust shield, drill holes through thick steel or crawl under the car. Delivery was fast and the online support for installation seem pretty good except for the differences listed here. Install time would have been under 3 hours if the instructions had been correct for a 2012.

Hitched arrived fast and was in good condition. Two issues were encountered. The notch specified for the cover is too big. I undercut mine and tested the fit. i ended up with 3 1/2 x 5 inches and DID NOT curt through the center push pin hole. The push pin fit correctly after install and there was about 3/16 inch clearance around the receiver frame. The bigger issue involved the internal bumper that sits on the bumper frame. There is no compensation for adding the hitch. The hitch pushes the internal bumper to the rear by the thickness of the hitch mounting surface. Doesn't seem like much but it has a MAJOR impact on seating the cosmetic bumper later. I ended up fabricating my own frame brace bumper using a shop floor tile. This reduced the chance of a cover crack during in a minor collision. You could leave the factory bumper off and take the risk. The floor tile was half the thickness of the factory internal bumper. The cosmetic cover should not require big forces to re-seat. If it does something is WRONG. Proper seating only requires medium finger pressure producing audible clicks along the quarter panel. If there is any misalignment it will not seat correctly.

Package was delivered later but thats to be expected during these chaotic times. The hitch itself has some good weight to it. I mean, its heavy! Installation was pretty easy! I put it off at first thinking how complicated it was gonna be just by watching their provided video. Then came the day i needed the hitch so I thought I cant be that bad. My 2019 Subaru outback was a lot easier I didnt have to pull as much fasteners as shown on the video. I also didnt have to cut a big piece off the facia. It made it even easier that the facia was pre-marked and there were lines where to cut. It was way under 90min to complete the installation.

I need a hitch to tow my trailer, and they wanted almost 400.00 and one of my coworkers just bought a hitch from your compney and told Me to check you out. I am so glad I did. The Price was untouchable, and the quality was Just like the OEM part. From time of order till sitting on my door step was great. Thank you so much for your great service. Herbert

Great quality black powder coat finish. Design allows hitch frame to be hidden inside bumper fascia. Fit perfect over bolts. Great customer support. Good people on the other end.

Super Heavy duty Hitch for my 2019 Subaru. Packed very carefully. Arrived when expected. Took about three hours to install. Those plastic clips are sure a pain to get out without breaking. You do have to take entire bumper off the car. BTW the instructions are rolled up into the hitch(didnt see them till after install and taking off protective strapping.). The video is right on step by step directions. Very Happy!

Great hitch, especially for the price. I installed this on my 2013 Outback, and I really like the nice clean look. The instructions and videos were mostly good, but the fascia trim diagram was wrong. It showed the cutout offset from the center clip hole and only 4-1/2 inches deep. For the 2013 Outback, the cutout must be centered and 6 inches deep. The hardest part was removing and installing the bumper fascia, since I hadn't done it before. All in all it wasn't bad. I could not get the bumper fascia back on with the foam bumper cover installed, so I left it out. After reviewing more Q&A on the etrailer web site, I saw that it is common for these not to fit with some types of hitches, and the insert is not necessary. The bumper does not feel any different without it. It would be helpful for the instructions and videos to mention that it may not fit.

Good product, bolts right on. I found where Subaru recommends this type of mounting over the type that bolts / drills from underneath as it keeps the bar inline with the crumple zones of the frame. My draw bar is a loose fit in the receiver but that seems to be the nature of these things. The diagram in the instructions for trimming the bumper veneer was a little off. My version says 4" x 4-1/2" with the right edge centered on the mounting hole. I had to shift this to the left 1/2" and make the notch 5" deep. When removing the plastic panel to access the tail light bolts slide it up 1/4" to disengage a tab / slot connection. When replacing the bumper veneer, start by engaging the slots / tabs under the tail lights. That will help everything else line up. Plan on replacing the push-pins in the wheel wells. For me only two of eight were in place anyway and the heads snapped right off. Three bucks at the parts store.


Comments
Still running strong. One note, it is important to use a torque wrench to tighten the bolts.

2015 Subaru Outback Wagon

This is a great product. Here are some of my thoughts on installation. I have a 2013 Outback, and it would have been nice if there was a video showing installation on that year. The oldest model with a video is a 2015. There were a few differences but nothing I couldn't figure out. The biggest thing is that I ended up jacking up both sides of the rear of the car and taking the rear wheels off. It was nearly impossible to get to the plastic tabs that needed to be removed with the wheels on. As for the foam piece, I did need to make it thinner in order to get the bumper back on. I ended up using a hand saw and (awkwardly) cutting ~1/8" off of the front of the foam piece. This did the trick. I also needed to cut the notch out of the bottom of the bumper much deeper than what the instructions call for. Almost 6" instead of 4.5". For replacing the tabs that hold the bumper on, I figured out that it is helpful to completely remove the inner piece first, then put the outer piece in place, and then pop in the inner piece. Overall this job took me 4.5 hours (I was not rushing at all!). I'm very happy with this hitch receiver.

2016 Subaru Outback Wagon

I just installed this yesterday on my 2016 Subaru Outback (28-May-2020) and below are a some of the challenges I faced that I hope will help you in your installation: 1. The plastic pins that hold the top of the bumper fascia to the side of the car body are very hard to remove and I broke one. This is the one type of pin where the middle gets pushed in and clicks in order for the clip to be removed. Be extremely gentle and maybe use a little WD40 or something similar to help it slide out. 2. All of the 14mm bumper bolts had varying amounts of rust which made them difficult to remove. I used a rust penetrant spray and was able to use a 3/8" drive but it was a bit of a struggle. A 1/2" drive would have made things much easier. 3. Make the cut in the lower bumper plastic about 3/4" deeper than called for in the directions as well as 1/2" wider; then test fit everything to make sure there is clearance before reinstalling clips, screws, etc. 4. The bumper fascia was a little tricky to get back on and seems to sit back the same width as the thickness of the trailer hitch mounting bracket, which makes sense. I highly recommend removing material from the foam bumper insert with rough sandpaper, a small saw, wood rasp, etc. to compensate for this. 5. The mud flaps were difficult to remove since the mounting screws are so close to the tires. I have a small 90 degree Phillips screw driver so was able to get them out and put them back in, but if you don't, you may want to remove the wheels and jack up the rear of the car. 6. It was very difficult finding the wiring harness to plug in my Curt C56040 trailer light set. The video makes it look so easy, but I can assure you that it was quite difficult. Once I was able to get my hand behind the panel per the video, I noticed that my wiring harness was taped together in two places using blue tape, so maybe this will help you if you are going to be using the trailer light kit. 6. Just a few final tips: -I drove the back of the car on ramps so I didn't have to bend down too much. This was a life saver -Plan plenty of time so you don't need to rush. It took me about three hours or so without rushing through it. Just don't rush. Breaking plastic body parts isn't worth it. -See if someone can help you line up the bumper fascia when you go to put it back on -Line up the bumper fascia under the tail lights first as the video shows and which was mentioned in other reviews. -I found the video much easier to follow than the printed directions, so I recommend having your phone, tablet, laptop, etc. available for reference Good luck. I hope this helps.

Great product! Instructions were not too straightforward for the 2011 outback. Particularly, the instructions for bumper cover cutout wasn’t clear. I needed to cut atleast 1 inch more from bumper cover than what was in the manual so reinstall took some time. Good instructions would have saved an hour or more from the install time. Otherwise happy with the product.

Holes on hitch did not align well with bolts protruding from frame. First time I've really had a problem with a Curt product. The bolts had a stub on the end and I just gently hammered a couple up or down until the hitch slid over them. Hitch is otherwise nice. The specified cutout in the rear apron is a bit large. I cut it almost an inch narrower and it fits nice around the hitch, not that anyone would see it. Installation is not all that bad. It was close to 2 hours for me, I am mechanically inclined but took my time since it's a pretty new car and I have to keep the wife happy. I just watched the video along the way. I also installed a Factory tow wiring harness at the same time. You will probably want to install wiring at the same time while you have everything apart. Watch the video for install



- C13410

Easy enough to install for someone who doesn’t know much about cars. I watched the video twice and then had someone assist. The whole process took about two hours but then again I don’t have any power tools or experience so I’m sure others can do it much faster. Very well made. Expect it to serve me for many years to come.

2018 Subaru Outback Wagon

This tow package was for the 2018 Subaru Outback H6R. It fits beautifully. Just a minor trimming on the bottom side of the bumper. No unsightly showing of the tow bar or anything related. The removing, and reinstalling of the bumper after the tow package installation took about 2 hours (due to the sensors on the bumpers and their connections). Value for the money, Fast delivery. I did not contact customer service for this purchase.



- C13410
by:

Fast delivery, easy installation, and good price. Installed on a 2016 Subaru Outback in 2 hours. I am not a "car guy" and it wasn't too bad. Pointers from installation process: Definitely use some WD-40 on the plastic tabs holding the fascia. It really helped loosen up the pieces. I did not trim the foam on the bumper and had no issues with reinstallation. I did not have a right angle phillips screw driver for wheel well screws but was able to rig a vise grip with a phillips head drill bit.

  • Does Curt Trailer Hitch Sit Against Bumper for 2010 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13410 will fit up snug against the bumper of your 2010 Subaru Outback Wagon and if you reference the linked instructions you can see that you actually need to trim some of the bumper fascia.
