Just got a new s60 AWD. I want to use a trailer hitch mounted bike carrier like this one due to keeping the bike away from the paint/car:

Has anyone had a trailer hitch installed?
Has anyone had any experience with other bike racks (dealer options or not) they would recommend?

I used to have a 99 Galant LS and a very simple bike rack, the back bumper got scraped severely from my bike's disc brakes. Also melted a tire from hanging near the exaust one trip. I would like to never do these things again...

You should check out the S60 roof mounted bike rack. It fits into a bracket that already exists in your rain gutters. The rack never touches any paint. You can then buy Thule, or (with special mounts) Yakima accessories to cary anything.

I wanted to do the same exact thing!

The problem is the Volvo Trailer Hitch is round, while all of the bike racks I have found are square.

Nope! Volvo's new trailer hitches have a square tip so that they can be compatible with the bike racks!
