I installed a Draw-Tite receiver hitch on my 2009 Honda Civic to be able to mount a bike rack for carrying bicycles. The hitch arrived in fine condition. I was a bit surprized that it did not come in a box, but that was OK since it was not damaged or skuffed. Installation was easy. I recommend watching the installation videos that are on-line, rather than just reading the one-page installation guide. I installed the hitch myself (one person with no help). The key to making installation easy for being able to do it with one person was to use a zip tie (or center U-bolt) to hold the hitch up in place first so that bolting it to the frame rails is easy. Otherwise, two people will be needed for the installation to be able to hold the hitch in place while bolting it to the frame. The hitch looks good on the car. I am very pleased with the hitch so far. The real test of time will be to see how the hitch looks and works 15 years down the road.
