White Diamond Pearl ****2019 Touring****
There is another thread H-E-R-E regarding changing the left rear and right rear door checker to increase opening angle.A few minor annoying things are the the back doors and their ability to swing out wider. Really notice it putting in a car seat.
I installed couple strips of Velcro Stick-On strips (hook side only) onto the back of the cargo mat. It grips onto the rear carpet very well for me. Suggest you only put the hook-side velcro on the portion of the mat that is forward of the built-in cover 'hinge' . . . that allows the mat to slide/rise a bit on the rear section when you lift it, making lifting easier. And no more mat sliding over the handle.Also bought the OEM cargo mat, I wish it stayed in place better. When I slide things in and out, it moves, which a lot of the times covers up half of the under floor storage handle.
Also, if you install an aftermarket hitch, such as one made by Curt or Draw-Tite, wherein removal of rear bumper is not necessary (personally don't know how well hands-free tailgate functions with an aftermarket hitch, since it lays directly below the sensor bar. As an e-trailer review stated "Excellent choice install was a breeze with no cutting needed , although the kick feature to open the lift gate does not work I wouldn’t have purchased this for their reviews said it will not interfere with this feature").And lastly, I wish they came installed with a hitch. Having a Touring, you need to move the kick sensors. Which means I have to play with electric, and taking off bumpers on a brand new car pains me. So I rather have the dealer do it, but that means spending $900+ for basically a hitch.
As for the OEM hitch, some members on this forum have advocated installation (and the required hands-free adapter with it's cut-to-size bracket and reduced length sensor rods) without removing the bumper. I chose to remove the bumper when installing the OEM, and it doesn't require complex effort to do so . . . more a matter of getting past the anxiety of removing a large body panel on a new vehicle. Read instructions well, take your time, and you can do it. Or pay dealer or shop of your choice to do the labor. Choose your option.
