I'm surprised it's only 32%.

No surprise there. Cars are super expensive and they depreciate a lot. Most people get tired of their vehicles in 4-5 years.
Many also don't have big down payments or car equity to trade in so it is a vicious cycle.

I don't understand this:

which means that dealers lenders are willing to accept an immediate loss for new transactions

Any negative equity is rolled into the new loan so how are the lenders taking a loss?

*If people stuck to paying for new vehicles in 4 years or less this would not occur.

I didn't understand that either, buy from further reading it sounds like they expect a large number of these loans to go into default with the lenders not getting their money back

In reading the article the consumer can get into an unsustainable cycle.

Owe $15k on car worth $10k, they roll $5k onto the new loan. You buy a $25k car with a trade in and no down payment and driving off the lot you owe $30k.

It's insanity. There's perfectly good new cars available for less than $15K. An excellent job of marketing by auto manufacturers.

It still is consumer thinking paying now in 5-8 year loan terms. Depreciation out paces the payment and surprise you are upside down.

Given that 625 credit score and up can finance over 100% of the value of the car plus and hard adds, it isn't hard.

They then charge interest on the greater amount and make money, not lose it.

People need to keep their cars for longer, until it's paid off, AND THEN you're free to go trade it in if you want. Use that 2-3k car value as your down payment on the next one, of you want.

I have a low APR on my Mazda 3 and have been paying $50 extra each month. Once it's paid off this year, it will have maybe 70-80k on it and is in MINT CONDITION. I plan to use it for an additional 5 years PAYMENT FREE before I even begin to think about getting another car payment.

People these days just can't manage their money nor their desires.

crackmeup

The reality is, the people who technically NEED to buy those cars because it's in their budget, end up buying some $32,000 Benz instead and then struggle with the $800 monthly payment. But hey, at least they look good driving to work... to McDonalds.
