Credit score factor “proportion of balances too high,” with virtually no balances

Dear Experian,

How did I get the comment “proportion of loan balances to loan amounts is too high” when all I have is a car loan with nine payments left on a 60-month loan and only owe about 15 percent of the loan amount?
