Automotive Credit Continued to Strengthen in Q4 2010

by Mercator Advisory Group 0

Experian Information Services’ Q4 2010 report provides a positive report on automotive credit from both volume and delinquency perspectives.

The company’s Q4 2010 report shows automotive credit overall continuing to strengthen as 30- and 60-day loan delinquencies exhibited sharp declines. The report also showed the share of loans to credit-challenged new vehicle shoppers grew by 18.2% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared with the fourth quarter of 2009.

Originations began to loosen in the second half of 2010 while used vehicle financing decreased year-over-year in the highest risk tier, Experian noted. New financing increased all segments, including an 18% growth in subprime new financing. Consumer loans grew a modest amount from last year and new payments were down while used payments showed a slight increase.
