The Mazda MX3 has a sharp styling design and head turning sporty looks. It provides an impressive ride quality and competent handling. The Mazda’s strong engine and tight suspension combine to create tremendous towing ability. The interior cabin is spacious and the cargo area reasonable. However, to increase the vehicle’s utility level attach a trailer to the car and utilize its awesome towing potential. You will need a quality trailer hitch to hook up your trailer. There are many trailer hitch suppliers out there but few can match the quality at CARiD. CARiD stocks products from the top brands in the country. These include CURT, REESE, HIDDEN HITCH and TOW READY among many others. With these brands behind your car, you can expect quality and reliable service for a long time to come. Your first order of business is to determine your MX3’s towing capacity. This will help you determine the weight class your car will pull and its corresponding hitch.
The products on offer include weight-bearing hitches and weight-distribution hitches for small and medium trailers and Gooseneck and 5th wheel trailers for larger trailers. Load distribution is always a primary consideration in these matters. Weight-carrying hitches dump the entire trailer weight on the rear axle making the back heavy and the front tires light. The effect on the steering function of the car is not good. Worse still, you end up blinding oncoming traffic with your headlamps due to the slightly raised effect, thereby endangering other road users. To avoid all these, use an equalizing hitch to transfer some of the weight onto the front axle. A better alternative is to use a weight-distribution hitch equipped with a spring bar mechanism to transfer a portion of the tongue weight onto the front tires. Mazda MX3 trailer hitches come with a limited warranty guaranteeing against defects in quality and workmanship.

"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. "
