    Quick 2013 V question re tow hook

    I have a 2013 V wagon on order. I understand that after 2010 there is no place to screw in a tow hook on the regular CTS.

    Is this also the case for the V?

    The reason I ask is because for my current 2009 V there is a tow hook receptacle and I have used it for the tow hook license plate holder on occasion. I have a tow hook, but I have thankfully never had to use it.

    If there's no receptacle under that "tow hook cover" in the front, I'll have to install one of those hideaway front plate devices when I get the new wagon.

    TIA!

    I want to jump on this... I went to the dealer for the hook, because in order to have your car put on a flatbed properly you have to have that hook... The cars are supposed to come with them...so I was told.... Anyhow, dealer had no idea what the hell I was talking about... They said those holes in the bumper, front and back, were for assembly line.... Anyone got the part number for it???????????

    I have one our company made. A few members here have purchased them from us. It is made with grade 8.8 materials and has an oval eyebolt w/m16 x 2 threads, is rated over 3700 pounds. It is a quality piece, not a cheap homemade one. Feel free to PM me if interested. It is much less than OEM.

    GM tow hook/eye number is 20840384.

    PM member "Lindsay Cadillac Parts", or call them (their number is on their ad on the right). Luke at Lindsay Cadillac will hook you up for an excellent price. That's where I got my tow hook. Not to mention, he's a site sponsor.

    Thanks, How much did you pay for the tow hook. Trying to decide to either do the D3 which comes with a tow hook or the ROHplate

    Re: Quick 2013 V question re tow hook

    I paid a little over $50. Again, call Lindsay or PM them to find out the current cost.

    Were I to do it again, I would have gotten the D3 2-in-1 solution. I have the ROH plate and the GM tow hook separately and the two together cost about the same.

    cool thanks for the feedback. So the D3 one does include the tow hook? Wasn't sure since it says optional on the page
