CARiD offers a variety of Saturn Vue trailer hitches to choose from depending on the trailer that you intend to tow as well as the car that you have. Each trailer hitch comes with a manual that will assist you in determining if your car will be up to task depending on the weight of the trailer, the weight of your Saturn Vue and the hitch hat you have purchased. For any vehicle to remain stable when in motion and towing a trailer, 10% of the total weight of the trailer has to be at the tongue of the hitch. If you have more weight than this on the tongue of the car, then you will encounter some problems while you are moving. All the weight will go to the back wheels of your car, making your front wheels lighter and this will make steering a major problem. You will also end up interfering with oncoming traffic because your headlights, now raised, will be interfering with oncoming drivers. This is why it is best to get a weight distributing hitch that will ensure that the weight is equally distributed on all wheels of the car.
Shifting the weight on your trailer to create some balance or using sway control devices may seem like the answer when you experience instability while driving. This might work but it is just transitory. The only way you will be assured of stability when towing, is by ensuring that you have the correct combination of hitch type, trailer size and car weight. To determine the weight balance before beginning your journey, you might be required to go to the truck scales and this should be done with the trailer fully loaded with what you intend to tow. Overall though, you will have an easy time towing when you identify the best trailer hitch for your Vue. CARiD can help you in doing that.

"Good connector. It was easy to install and the ends have nice factory style connectors, so you can just plug them into the existing connectors (vs splicing the wires in like some other brands do). I did have to cut and splice the yellow wire because it came up short, but it may have been due to where I attached the box and/or where I routed the wires (not a big deal either way). If you splice any wires, I recommend you solder or crimp the splice and then apply liquid electrical tape and shrink tubing over that. I was pleased with this product."

"Good-looking hitch. Welds looked nice and surface/paint was nice and smooth. I recommend you go a ½ copper tube fitting brush to clean out the thread holes (or a similar small wire brush). Once I got the brush and cleaned out the holes in the frame, the installation went smooth. Iâ€™m pleased with my purchase."
