Additional Information

The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 525 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Mazda CX 5 (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at It features a square tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.

The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).

CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

Rookie Mistake on installation.

Rookie Mistake; on the Mazda CX-5, when lowering the muffler pan, be sure to remove the rubber bushing on the lower mounts of the rear most muffler mounts. The hitch, once installed, does not provide enough clearance to reinstall the bushing to the upper mounts.

Fits perfectly and the fish wires help with the installation

This product represents the "Made in USA" label. It's nice, sturdy, and fits perfectly for my 2014 Mazda CX-5. Installation was easy and I did it myself. I didn't even have to raise the car since it's an SUV and it already has enough clearance. I haven't towed anything heavy yet, but my bike rack fits well with the hitch.

CURT Hitch #13127

This is the third or fourth CURT hitch I have installed over the years, and every time, I find the part to be well made and fit perfectly. I ordered this hitch for my 2014 Mazda CX-5, and I was able to install it with no problems - good fit, good finish. One note - the instructions advise you to remove the rubber isolators to lower the exhaust system - definitely a must, but the instructions need to add one step. While the front isolators can either be removed from the chassis side or the exhaust system side, the isolators at the rear need to be removed from the muffler, not the chassis. Otherwise, the side plate of the bolted-in hitch blocks the hooks on the chassis. Luckily, I had not tightened the nuts when I realized this, or I would have had to unbolt everything and redo it with the isolators on the chassis hooks. Other than that, installation was a snap. The fishwires needed to get the bolts in place made things very easy. Well done, CURT!
