More Than 1 In 4 Car Loan Applicants Have Something In Common

ID-10064739If over 1 in 4 new auto loan applicants had a common shared trait, car dealerships across the country would be clamoring to know what that trait might be. The truth is that there was a common trait shared by 27 percent of of loans for new cars in the first half of 2013. What was the common trait, and how can car dealerships use it to bring in more business? Read on to find out more.

According to Experian Automotive, 27 percent of new auto loans in the first half of 2013 were subprime auto loans, or loans granted to consumers with poor credit or no credit. These customers have gone through credit problems like loan delinquencies, job loss, and bankruptcy, or they never had the opportunity to establish credit history in the first place. Many consumers with low credit or no credit are in dire need of a reliable vehicle so they can get to work, pick up their kids from school, and keep up with their other responsibilities.

This is a demographic of people who are eager to buy, and yet many of them are not being sufficiently served by their local dealerships. They are viewed as high-risk buyers because of their credit histories, and sales teams at dealerships are not always trained with the knowledge they need to work with these customers.
