Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid

Question:

Does this hitch or any of the ones you sell fit the 2017 Acura MDX Hybrid? Acura says towing is not recommended with the hybrid, but I want to use it for a bike rack.

Expert Reply:

Yes, you can use Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75225 on your 2017 Acura MDX hybrid. The hitch will fit with a full-size spare if the spare is the 18 inch but not if the spare is the available 19 or 20 inch. If you have a 19 or 20 inch full size spare in that area (which being a hybrid I am not sure if the spare is in the same place as gas models) then the spare would have to be relocated if it interferes with the hitch installation.

I don't know how many bikes you want to carry or if you have a bike rack already but I can tell you that owner's of the 2017 MDX like the Thule Vertex 5-bike rack # TH9030XT and the 4-bike Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. I have linked videos of both racks for you.
