Auto Loan Repos, Delinquencies Rates Down in 2013

ID-10014636A new report from Experian Automotive shows that Americans are maintaining and even improving on keeping up with their auto loan payments.

In the second quarter of 2013, only 0.36 percent of vehicles were repossessed for non-payment, a 14.8 percent drop from the first quarter’s rate of 0.43 percent. 30-day late payments are also steadily dropping, and in the second quarter of 2013, 30-day late payments hit their lowest number since 2006 when Experian Automotive began following delinquencies and repossessions.

Interestingly enough, over a third of open vehicle loans in the second quarter of 2013 consisted of nonprime, subprime, and deep-subprime loans. One might expect that with so many subprime lenders there would be more delinquencies and repossessions, but Experian’s statistics from the second quarter tell a completely different story. For this reason, banks and lending institutions are more willing than ever to approve auto loans for consumers with subprime and deep-subprime credit.

Bad Credit Auto Loan: Car Repossession Rate Drops

As lenders are getting more flexible with auto loan terms and approving more sub-prime auto loans, repossession rates are surprisingly dropping.

According to Experian Automotive, the repossession rate in the fourth quarter of last year dropped 28 percent. Though there was a slight increase in delinquencies during that same time, this statistic shows that car buyers are making their payments on time, even if they had subpar credit or no credit prior to getting the auto loan.

Hopefully the repossession rate will continue to drop. Many people with challenged credit are in need of another chance to rebuild their credit history, and one of the best ways to re-establish credit is with an auto loan. When lenders see that consumers are less likely to fall behind on their payments and go through repossession, they will be more willing to take a chance on someone with challenged credit.

Bad Credit Auto Loans: More Subprime Auto Loans in 2012

According to one of the big 3 credit bureaus, now is the time for subprime credit car shoppers to go for an auto loan.

Earlier this month, Experian Automotive released statistics about auto loans written in the third quarter, and they found that 42 percent of new and used auto loans were for subprime buyers. In this report, subprime buyers are classified as buyers with credit scores below 680. Overall, average credit scores on new auto loans are down to 755 compared to 763 last year, and looking at individual automakers, the average scores could be as low as 694.

For car buyers with a troubled credit history, it is clear that this is a great time to buy. The end of 2012 is offering a perfect combination of holiday sales specials and lenders ready to grant auto loans. Besides that, car buyers looking for a used car will get the added advantage of dealerships wanting to move last year’s inventory to make room for the new models.
