The hitch appears to offer a good value and was easy to install on a 2009 Hyundai Elantra Touring. I had to make a minor adjustment since the hitch would not fit on to the frame rails. After spreading the hitch by holding it in a vise and bending the mounting plates a little( about 1/4in) it fitted really easily. A couple of installation tips. 1) pre-install the 4 mounting bolts in their tapped holes to clear out the paint and undercoating. Just run them in and out. Makes the bolts easier to start when holding the hitch in place. 2) Measure the distance to the outside of the frame rails and compare with the measurement on the hitch to ensure that it will fit. If a bit too tight, bend the hitch brackets a bit. Overall an easy install.
