Review Product
Perfect fit "but"
This is a great hitch and would have been very easy to install "EXCEPT" The holes on the car were a problem. It lined up perfect with the holes but the holes needed to be redrilled. Had we known why the bolts would not go in and drilled out those holes it would have been a snap to install. Because of where the hole is, you can't see if the hole is clear. So it took an hour of trying until we realized where we were puttng the bolts through, the hole had metal overlaping keeping the bolt from going through. It would be good if in the instructions it warned that this hole might need redrilling. Now I could install one in 30 Min!
