Mazda 6 Trailer Hitches

    About Mazda 6 Trailer Hitches


    The Mazda 6 is a stylishly designed vehicle with head-turning sporty looks. The car’s cabin is edgy and spacious, providing great comfort as you cruise down the freeway. It has nimble handling potential, responding to the lightest touch of a button. Its superb engine makes towing a trailer an easy task. With a trailer behind you, all your hauling needs are easily settled. All you require is a Mazda 6 trailer hitch from CARiD and you are ready to go. CARiD’s products are synonymous with top quality. They are sourced from the most reputable brands in the country. They are designed by professional engineers using sophisticated techniques to ensure precise fitment and safety. Your choice of trailer and hitch will depend on your car’s towing capacity. This information is readily available on your owner’s manual. You also need to consider load distribution within the trailer. Improper weight distribution is the primary cause of many trailer related incidents on the road.

    Trailers typically transfer 10% of their trailer weight onto the tongue. A weight-bearing hitch transfers the total tongue weight on the rear axle making the back heavy and the front tires light on the road. This makes steering a bit tricky. You also run the risk of blinding oncoming traffic with your headlamps. To prevent all this, use an equalizing hitch to transfer some of the weight to the front axle, thereby enhancing stability on the road. Alternatively, you may opt to use a weight-distribution hitch equipped with a spring bar mechanism to transfer some weight to the front tires. Mazda 6 trailer hitches are resilient, all-weather equipment. They are also not susceptible to rusting. Each purchase comes with an instruction manual to guide you through the process of installation. CARiD also provides support in form of accessories to aid in the successful installation and operation of the hitch.

    When you’re setting up your trailer with a new tow vehicle, several things need to be considered: the ball mount and ball must be rated to take the weight, and the ball has to be at the right height. Once you have determined the proper weight class, choose a ball mount of a high enough class for your trailer, and set up your ball mount and ball for proper towing. Here's how you do that.

    "Very impressed with CARiD, as my hitch was delivered in 3 days. No problems there. The hitch has excellent quality and nice powder coat finish. But the actual installation... Well, don't try to do it yourself unless you can raise the car high enough to get adequate work room. I took it to my mechanic, and even on the hoist, it took over an hour. But it's on now and solid with no problems. Very happy when it was all complete. Using it for a bike carrier, Yakima, so this hitch is going to be great. Very happy with CURT hitch."

    "Arrived quickly. Easy to install, but it had over an inch of play between the frame and mounting points and I felt that tightening the bolt could have torn the frame, so I put thick washers between the hitch and the frame and still had a lot of space that the frame had to bend and fill. The hitch should have been made at least 3/8 inch wider to limit this frame stress. Also, the mounting plates should have been wrapped so they both did not land up tearing thorough the cardboard box and have the paint chipped off so I had to repaint them before mounting the hitch. "

    "I have purchased several other items from CARiD in the past. They have all been top quality, as is this hitch cover. It installs easily and is made of stainless steel, so it won't corrode. It makes a nice appearance, looks like factory OEM equipment. "
