Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

Here is my review and photos: 4 stars out of 5 2018 Passat SE w/ Technology pkg. Draw-Tite 24880 I have now installed at least 6 hitches from etrailer and their products and service has been great. I see another reviewer that has a 2018 Passat SE w/ Technology where the Hands-free Easy Open trunk no longer works after installing the hitch. ONE WORD OF CAUTION, if you use the instruction and cut the lower bumper fascia 5" by 2.5" as instructed, you will cut through the electronics unless you drop the bumper fascia and separate the wiring from the fascia, and relocate the wiring before cutting the fascia. After I relocated the wiring harness and installed the hitch and trimmed bumper fascia, everything works and looks great. This hitch with mounting plates that go over the bumper rail is much harder and takes longer to install than a hitch that bolts into factory mounting holes or welded nuts, but what are you to do if you own a 2018 VW Passat. I have photos of the care needed when cutting the lower bumper fascia to avoid cutting the wire harness for the Technology package. For the fascia to clear the hitch and reach the factory mounting holes, I had to cut the fascia 6" wide to fir around the "drop-down". You can see it in the last two photos. Thanks for all your help and great products, 629117


Comments
The hitch is working great. With my previous notes on how to relocate the wires for the Technology pkg before cutting the fascia, my technology pkg works great, and you can still use your foot to open the trunk hands-free. Yes the hitch drags occasionally when going over curbs and driveways, but hey, this car sits lower than say, an SUV. Great job to etrailer.

Everything fit well, seems to be heavy duty. One thing not mentioned is that it is very difficult to fit the receiver up in place if the rear of the car is not up in the air. The videos show them installing on a rack but I don't have one. I used my floor jack and a pair of jack stands so that I could get under the car. Once I got that done it was smooth sailing. Might be a good idea if the instructions mentioned not enough ground clearance to fit the receiver in place without proper ground clearance. 837781

When i needed to add a trailer hitch to my car for a move, i searched around and this was pretty much the cheapest priced hitch i could find( about a hundred cheaper than uhaul) so i got it and installed myself without taking the bumper off and im very pleased with my purchase.

Took my etrailer hitch to the local body shop and Anthony attached it without trouble. Have since driven from Northern PA to Texas and back (3200 mile round trip) with a Cargo Carrier attached to my hitch, and it was sturdy, quiet, and just fine. It has allowed me to carry extra gear (especially camping gear) when traveling overnight. I also have attached a bike carrier to the hitch, and have been pleased with the results. No matter how careful you are, a bike rack that is NOT attached to a hitch always ends up scratching the car. So the hitch allows my bike to stay well away from the trunk and fender of the car to keep that from happening. 746691

Working great and have towed many different things with it and happy overall with it, the only down side is the car is very low and sometimes turning into some driveways it scrapes the road, but not a big deal ??

Volkswagen Passat

This works well, and was easy to install, but on the Passat it hangs low and is located outboard the bumper. This causes frequent dragging on medium slopes in roads and driveways. Unfortunately many places i visit have slope transitions and I drag the hitch regularly unless I cross the transition diagonally. I had originally bought it to mount a bike hitch, but I have had an issue finding one that will not increase the tendency to drag at an affordable price (many are long and low). 546114

2017 Volkswagen Passat

I installed this Draw-Tite hitch on my 2017 VW Passat SE by myself. The hitch is heavy and well built. I followed the instruction videos which where very helpful. My 2017 passat has a rather large plastic shroud that had to be trimmed and made the job just a bit more time consuming, but not impossible. Measuring and trimming could have been more tidy on my part but I wanted the shroud to have extra room for reinstalling. I was more precise when measuring for the two drilled holes allow the center brace bolts to fit through the shroud. Tip: Harness 117842, when unplugging the left and right wires for the trailer lighting harness, pull the red clip out the depress the locking tab to disconnect the OEM plugs. Running power from the battery was the most time consuming. 545908

The hitch is as good as expected with 2 exceptions. If you're mounting this hitch on a 2018 Passat w/Technology, it will block the trunk release sensor beneath the bumper. At present, the bolts that clamp the hitch to the frame that DrawTite ships are about 1/2" too short. However, the eTrailer customer service is outstanding. They found longer bolts and ship them right away. All is good now except for the trunk sensor. I'll live with it. 501834

2017 Volkswagen Passat

I purchased ta hitch for my Passat so I could use a tray-style bicycle rack, and I chose this specific hitch because it doesn't require stabilizing straps. The hitch has performed well over the last year, with only minor surface rust. It's mostly unobtrusive appearance-wise, but it tends to scrape frequently on steep driveways. All-in-all, it's a solid choice for a hitch that hasn't caused me any headaches. 488184

  • How to Determine Towing Capacity of 2018 VW Passat
    The best way to determine what your vehicle can tow is by looking at its owner's manual. Unfortunately, VW manuals are hard to find online unless you own the car already so I don't have a way to look at it for you. From the research I did it seems that the max towing capacity of your 2018 Passat is 1,000 pounds which sounds pretty likely. I recommend checking your manual to be certain though. Once you know how much you can tow you'll need the parts to do it. The hitch I recommend...

    Yes, there is a hitch for the SE R-Line model of the 2020 Volkswagen Passat SE R-line with part # 24880. The hitch is a 1-1/4" Class I receiver so you do want to make sure your bike rack is compatible. There is a tab in the hitch receiver that only allows Class I accessories. It is a concealed cross tube design to the only portion of the hitch that is visible is the receiver tube. I have added an installation video for your reference.

  • 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...
