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.

Low Monthly Car Payments Drive Subprime Credit Auto Sales

ID-10073066Going into summer 2013, banks and lenders are offering more options to subprime credit auto buyers including lower monthly payments and longer auto loan lengths.

According to Experian, the average monthly payment on a new auto loan in 2013 is $459, and new car buyers are extending the length of their loans as long as 84 months. 19.5 percent, or nearly 1 in 5 new car buyers, are opting for 73 to 84 month auto loans.

The obvious downside to a longer auto loan is that it will cost more in interest than a higher monthly payment and a shorter loan length. It is simple math, and there is no way around that. Still, a longer auto length is often a good option for consumers who need a lower monthly payment. Plus, they can always make higher payments and pay off the loan quicker if their financial situation changes and they have more money to put towards the loan.

Bad Credit Car Shoppers Trading In for Better Interest Rates

Last year all across the country, car shoppers with subprime credit got approved for auto loans, often for much better terms than they imagined. In 2013, even more people are applying for auto loans, and along with them, consumers are looking to trade in their car in hopes of getting a much lower interest rate.

Back when subprime auto loans were less available, consumers with challenged credit would pay up to 25 percent interest rates on their auto loans. Their car choices were dictated solely by what they could get approved for, not what fit their needs as a driver. Some of these people are still paying off their loans, and they are asking themselves why they would throw away more money on high interest rates for a car they didn’t really want in the first place.

Fortunately, they don’t need to keep paying insanely high interest rates. If these consumers paid their loan on time and otherwise kept up with their financial obligations, their credit is probably good enough to trade in for a much better car and loan terms, especially now. 2012 was a great year for people with challenged credit to get back behind the wheel. 2013 is looking to continue this pattern, but there is no way of knowing how long these optimal conditions will last. People who are considering trading in and trying for that lower interest rate should keep that in mind and perhaps get into a dealership sooner than later.

Are you looking to trade in your car? Are you looking for a new or used car but concerned about your credit? Approved Loan Store wants to help you!

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.
