I have a 2015 Outback that I bought used at a dealer 2 years ago. I had a U Haul hitch installed by U Haul right after I bought the car. When I hit minor bumps, there is a pronounced clunking noise coming from the rear. I had the car at the dealer today for a state inspection sticker and asked them to look into it. They said that the hitch doesn't fit the car properly and something (they didn't say what but I'll follow up) is hitting it. They said that a factory hitch wouldn't do that. I looked online at the factory hitch ($500, ouch) and the ball is way too close to the bumper and it would only take me about 2 tries to crunch the bumper into the trailer tongue. So, couple questions: Anyone else having problems with a U Haul hitch? Is there a longer ball mount available? Is this a real problem or just a noise?
