Curt or Drawtite or just about any aftermarket hitch the finish stinks for durability. Factory hitches are usually much better. My joke working here at a Toyota dealership (where we install tons of Curt hitches) is they are rusting before your shiny new car leaves the lot.
If you want to prevent that from happening you better recoat it with something much better like a POR15 or something from the Eastwood Company or perhaps a high quality undercoating.
Realistically what do you expect for under $200 bucks.
Oh and IMO there is nothing worse than an ugly hitch hanging below a car never mind a rusty one. Horrible just horrible!
