I was amazed at how perfectly the hitch was customized to fit my vehicle (2000 Honda CRV). The entire job took me about 90 minutes. More than half of that time I spent fishing the carriage bolts and spacers through the holes of my car's frame--I could have used 4 wires (supplied with the hitch's hardware) instead of just one, because the first bolt took only a few seconds, but then I couldn't get the spring end of the wire off of the bolt's threads, so I had to unwind it in a way that disfigured the spring. That required me to kind of re-wind it before doing each of the other three bolts, which took the extra time and made it harder to get everything through the holes. But it was still pretty slick the way it worked. The instructions should have said to only thread the spring end of the wire onto two or three threads, max. Also, once you see the wire in the second hole, the instructions should say to grab it and pull it through carefully with needle-nose pliers, because I could not get it with just my fingers. Overall, I am very pleased.
