Hi,
New MDX owner here.
We just got Grigio Metallic 2011 MDX tech/ent
I was promised to get hitch installed as part of the deal.
Went to the dealership to install it and they told me it's going to be MasterHitch (installed at 3rd party shop).
Now I'm trying to reason with them to get the original OEM hitch. Does anybody have pictures for 2011 MDX with original ACURA hitch and harness? I'd like to see how the OEM hitch looks installed.

@blacksheep: thank you! I saw these but I don't think my bumper has this removable section where the hitch goes. Did yours come with hitch or did you have it installed? Is there more to it ?( transmission cooler?) What are you towing? Anything to watch for?

Mine was installed when I bought the truck so I couldn't tell you if / how that panel comes off. The transmission cooler is standard on 2nd gen MDXs & they have a 5000 lb tow rating

I tow all sorts of things, as needed. Nothing much to watch for. If you tow something really heavy that is fitted with electric brakes you need to install a brake controller (I don't and I haven't)
