Tags: Automotive, Automotive, Risk Management
Loan delinquency rates are one of the most important statistics to track in the automotive finance industry. If consumers are not repaying loans on time, it puts billions of dollars at risk. When high dollar volumes are at risk, it is a negative for everyone in the lending world, including consumers, automotive retailers and lenders themselves.
Experian Automotive has found several clear patterns that can help lenders better understand the root cause of loan delinquencies. These can be found in vehicle buyers themselves through credit scores and length of credit history; through the vehicles themselves and their own history; and through the loans themselves by understanding the impact of high loan-to-value ratios.
