2013: Subprime Auto Loan Originations Up, LTV Close to Record Levels

ID-10098865For car buyers with subprime credit, there has never been a better time to buy. With loosening credit standards on auto loans, dealerships are actually competing for their business and doubling the number of subprime auto loans.

According to Automotive News, the average loan-to-value ratio (LTV) for auto sales to subprime credit customers has gone up 114.5 percent, getting very close to the current record of 121 percent in 2008. During the fourth quarter of 2012, subprime auto loans originations hit $18.4 billion, and dealerships across the country that were not marketing towards subprime credit consumers started to notice they were missing out on a piece of the pie.
