Auto Loan Delinquency Rates Spike to Great-Recession

Dec 2, 2021


As we look back on the effects of the recent recession, it becomes clear that the impact on various industries was substantial. One sector that experienced significant turbulence was the automotive industry, particularly with regards to auto loan delinquency rates. In this article, Life Designers, a trusted name in business and consumer consulting and coaching services, will explore the reasons behind the spike in auto loan delinquencies, both during and after the recession, and how we can help individuals and businesses navigate through these challenging economic times.

The Great Recession and Auto Loan Delinquencies

The Great Recession, which lasted from 2007 to 2009, had a far-reaching impact on the economy. During this period, many people faced financial difficulties, resulting in a significant increase in auto loan delinquencies. The loss of jobs, declining housing values, and overall economic instability made it difficult for individuals to make timely auto loan payments.

Auto lenders faced a substantial rise in default rates, leading to financial losses for both lenders and borrowers. Lending institutions tightened their lending criteria, making it harder for individuals with less-than-perfect credit to secure auto financing. This situation further exacerbated the financial strain felt by many consumers.

Post-Recession Auto Loan Delinquency Rates

Although the economy started recovering after the recession, and many industries experienced improvements, the auto loan industry continued to face challenges, with post-recession auto loan delinquency rates remaining higher than average.

One factor contributing to the sustained high delinquency rates is the increased issuance of subprime auto loans. These loans are provided to borrowers with lower credit scores, and the risk of default is inherently higher. Additionally, factors such as extended loan terms and inflated vehicle prices have also contributed to the overall increase in delinquencies.
