Toyota really has their head up their azz. If you look under the car you see the tapped holes for the receiver hitch on the passenger side. On the driver's side the tapped holes in the frame are completely covered by massive plastic from the spare tire well. Those bastids deliberately covered those holes so you can't mount a receiver hitch. No hitch maker is going to touch this car with that mongo piece of plastic there. They are not going to cut into it. I am ripped at this deliberate sabotage at the hands of mighty Toyota. And don't tell me "this car isn't made for towing". They went to the trouble of installing the tapped holes then some moron designer designed up a nice huge spare tire well with no consideration for a hitch. The Corolla can accept a receiver hitch and Matrixes of years past. This iM could have had a receiver hitch with some consideration to good design. Oh what a feeling!
ETrailer.com sells a Curt Enterprise Class 1 hitch I put it on my iM after first buying it in August 2017 still holding up well ... that bolts into the holes in the rear iMís frame .You do have to trim some of the lower underside plastic ,it clears the stock exhaust.I am using a Thule 2 bike cradle setup....Sept.2019
