I have the Tow Defender and am very happy with it. This is from the instruction sheet " some Blue Ox and
Demco baseplates vary in width. If you find that the shoulder bolt adaptors do not line up with the pre-drilled holes
in the support tube, you must drill new holes in the support
I am towing a 17 Corolla which is similar. There are a couple of quirks you need to learn....pushing the ignition button one time (if you have push button start) unlocks the steering wheel. If you should have reason to open the drivers door again after closing, it will lock the steering and you will need to go thru the procedure again.
Also, when you push the button to place it in the accessory position to provide 12 volt power to the power port for a Brake Buddy or similar braking system, it will time out in twenty minutes and cut off the power supply to the power port. You will need to purchase a heavy duty power port extension cord with alligator clips to hook up directly to the battery and run it thru the door or have a continuous power supply installed inside the vehicle. If you purchase an extension don't buy a cheap one from Amazon. I got mine from West Marine and it is heavy duty.
PM me if you have any questions.
