Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Instructions in the box said (and showed) to "sandwich" the muffler mount between the driver's side frame rail and the hitch... which would result in an uneven and unstable hitch mount (with hitch bolted directly to frame rail on the passenger side).
Instructions available online correctly said and showed to bolt hitch directly to rail on both sides.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


The hitch fit my 2011 XC90 perfectly. Instruction say to remove and replace the rubber muffler mount, but you don't have to fully remove it, just take the bolts out and rotate the whole mount straight down to the ground on its rubber. Then put up the hitch, and rotate the mount back up and put the bolts in. It was EASY! Also cutting out the XC90's plastic valance was no problem. You just draw a rectangle with a Sharpie. I used a sawzall, but a hacksaw or even tinsnips could do a good job. Cutout is about 2 inches by 5 inches and it's below the car, the cut area is not visible at all. I included a pic.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


Have not installed the receiver hitch. It does not work with my vehicle even though it says it is the correct hitch for a 2005 Volvo XC90. It hits the exhaust. I am not an amateur at installing hitches. I've bought from you before and not had any problems.


Comments
Curt, I apologize for any inconvenience with your order. Occasionally, a installed hitch will make contact with a vehicles exhaust system. Thankfully, there are some remedies available for this issue by looking at this helpful link. I hope this helps!

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


Ordered the Curt hitch and T-tap wiring harness for the 2005 Volvo xc90. Everything shipped quickly and came packaged together. I appreciated the emails telling me when teh package shipped and tracking information. The hitch went in smoothly and without and problems. All hardware was included and the holes lined up perfectly. The wiring harness could not have been easier. simply unplug the existing light connections and snap the new harness inline. A cordless drill is a must to secure the ground screw, even though it is self tapping. The kit included everything I needed, including wire zip ties.
I would recommend etrailer.com to anyone looking for a hitch related product; good product and great online videos to walk you through an install.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


This hitch was perfect on my 2013 Volvo XC90 - we loved it and used it a lot! The guys at our local gas station and service garage installed it easily. We just sold our car, and unfortunately the hitch would not fit on our new car - this was the hardest thing to give up!

I purchased two hitches from etrailer. Both fit the car perfect. The videos on how to install were great.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


The product was of great value and construction. Instructions were simple and installation was easy. On the 2007 XC 90 we had to pop the rivets that hold a plastic piece of the bumper to keep it from virbrating. We did that, used zip ties with the same holes and wrapped around the bumper. I drove 600 miles and no noise. Excellent product.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


I installed on a 2004 volvo xc90. I watched install video went exactly as shown. Only hiccup was I had a bumper support that I had to trim/grind 1/8 of inch or so. Also if you are laying underneath car best having 2 people. I managed with a jack but wasn't easy.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


Super easy and straight forward. Had the hitch installed in 20 minutes. No fuss. You will need a helping hand. A bit much for someone alone. We are always happy with Curt products. And like always, eTrailer is AWESOME!

Perfect fitting product and relatively easy and I am very experienced. There is a little bit of trimming of the bumper cover to make it fit exactly right, but this can be done with a hack saw.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


Installation of the hitch took 45 minutes in my driveway with hand tools and a jack, fit exactly as it should and the instructions offered ample detail.
The muffler on my particular model ended up sitting directly against the hitch but I don't foresee any issues and it could be easily remedied by a muffler shop for a few bucks.

etrailer made it a simple process for a good price. They didn't have the hitch I ordered in stock and with a simple phone call the replacement hitch was on it's way with no issues.

Review from a similar Trailer Hitch 13559 in Trailer Hitch


Installation was a bit of work but not too bad. Probably took 2hrs at most. It is a snug fit and you have to trim a bit of fascia out of the way. I am happy with the look and function of the receiver. Overall very satisfied.

The receiver is quite heavy so I struggled to line up the holes, but once done, it fits snugly and wirks
