Anyone have a pic of a trailer hitch installed on a TourX? Thanks in advance!
etrailer.com has some options here and each one has a link to instructions 2018 Buick Regal TourX Trailer Hitch | etrailer.com
When I went to get my trailer hitch the local Buick dealer said the hitch was on back order and didn't know when it would be available. E-trailer shipped the Curt hitch and wiring harness to me within 3 days and the dealer installed both for $135.00. Lot easier than climbing under the car, lowering the exhaust, cutting the heat shields on both sides, bolting up everything and then running the wiring harness from the battery to the back end. It was a three hour install but the dealer had it flat rated for an hour and a half. They did a nice neat clean job and I am very pleased.
I installed my hitch myself (the Curt hitch ordered through the dealer) and mine does not interfere at all with the kick sensor. I have the full logo showing and the functionality is unchanged. I think the small amount of adjustability of the hitch can result in the lighted logo being minimally obscured in some cases, but functionality should not be impacted.Does the hitch interfere with the “kick sensor” or logo light used to open the rear hatch?
Generally no, but I've scrapped twice when leaving a parking lot to a main road when the pitch down was a on the steeper side.Thanks so much!
Any issues with dragging the ground? Ground clearance?
The TourX is rated at 1,000 lbs in the states. But in Europe it is rated at 4,500 lbs with trailer brake at much lower speed limit.
Stormin here Norm, who told you it was rated for 1000 lbs in states?
Buick just researched and told me the manual is correct, 0 tow rating.
Did not have answer why GM acc. sells hitch for it rated at 3500 lbs.
I think you and Norm are correct that it will tow 1000 lbs with no problem.Buick told me it’s 1,000lbs after a lengthy back and forth through social media.
Luckily I don’t plan to tow with it, so 0 is fine for me.
