Hitch for a 2009 Focus SEL?

I am interested in installing a hitch on my 2009 Focus SEL so I can install a hitch mounted bike rack. Does Ford offer a factory hitch for the Focus? If not, I would love to hear everyones feedback and suggestions for which hitch to go with. I know there are a lot of options, i.e Curt, Hidden-Hitch, Draw Tite, Reese, etc. Please let me know what you think, all input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

yes, ford does have an OEM hitch, but in all reality, you can go to any store and get a universal class 1 hitch and you will b fine

Thank you for the reply. By any chance, would you happen to have the part number and/or a link to it? Please let me know. Thanks again.

Just talked to my local Ford dealer, and they said they don't have any information on a hitch for the 2009-2010. Can you shed some light on this for me? Thanks!

If your car is getting hitched, does that mean you have to pay for the wedding?

So assuming there isn't a factory hitch for the Focus, which aftermarket hitch is the best (Curt, Hidden-Hitch, Draw Tite, Reese, etc.)? Any thoughts and or input are welcome. Thanks.

I have a Hidden Hitch (brand) on my 2009 SES for the reason you stated bike rack. When I get home I will find the part number. They are all over Ebay thats where I picked mine up.
