Do Hitches Impact Warranty When Used With a 2017 Audi Q5?


Do the hitch receivers work for the 2017 Audi Q5 2.0 T? The video on your site says yes, but no consumer comments about this. Also, the installation appears to require some wiring work and bumper work. Does any of this void or impact the manufacturer warranty?


Expert Reply:

There would be no warranty issues unless the installation and the part caused a problem; you are protected by the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act, which allows you to use aftermarket vehicle parts with no impact to your warranty.

Each of the trailer hitches we have as fits for your 2017 Audi Q5 would work, but I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # 75940 over the Curt # C13136 because the use of the Curt hitch requires the use of stabilizing straps # 18050 with all non-trailer accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers.

I've added links to install videos of both the Draw-Tite and Curt for you to take a look at.
