The hitch for my 2004 Avalon seemed well made but the mounting holes didn't align properly with the Avalon's chassis. I had to clamp the hitch in a vice and bend one of the mounting flanges. That still didn't quite do the trick, so I had to also enlarge one of the bolt slots with a small metal file. Once the bolt holes lined up, installation went nicely. One small issue for use is that there is quite a bit of slop in the receiver. I wrapped mine with some duck tape to stop some of the rattling and banging noises. Overall I was satisfied with the end result, but installation wasn't easy.
