After brief respite repo men engaged again may

Paul A. Eisenstein, the Detroit Bureau - 1 day

There has been much talk about the US foreclosure crisis record highs during the recent recession rises. But car buyers also struggled to pay their bills and to prevent that the repo man shows at their door.

The good news is that loan delinquencies fell economic downturn dramatically since the depths of the country and went just as strongly back repossessions have. In fact, says they hit a 12-year low in the year 2012, Manheim consulting. But another study warns that the turnaround could be soon.

For the first time since 2009 the number of 60-day car could credit delinquencies rose in the fourth quarter of 2012, warns Experian Automotive, and with lenders who write risky subprime auto loans, which the industry during the recession struck, repo-man soon employed again.

For the moment, is only 0.46% of the outstanding car loans he fell to his hands repossessions to 27.6% in the fourth quarter, says a new report of Experian. Was that the loans, banks, credit unions, "caught" or financial companies exhibited independently, automaker operated or other lenders.

"Overall our Q4 analysis shows, that the auto market is extremely healthy," says Melinda Zabritski, Director of automotive credit for Experian Automotive. "Of course, never an increase in default rates view, but if you a step back and take a look compared to the market, where it was three years ago, we have still remarkable stability."

For now. But Experians new report raises some flags. This 60-day delinquencies, even slightly, from 0.72% in the fourth quarter during 2011 0.74% of the last three months of the year 2012. This was still the first rise since Q4 2009.

That's enough worry some observers, including Manheim Chief Economist, Tom Webb who repossessions forecast could rise by 26.9% by 2015.

Industry observers say that in this case, that the industry ascribed to themselves, yet can have. In the years before the recession, lenders seemed ready, pretty much any cash offer. Actually broke Japanese automaker Mitsubishi almost went, if it a NINJA-loan program young, first-time buyers aim to attract was burned. This is shortcut for no. income, no. get back a free ride for a year - the key jobs or assets, and many of the people who match this description, when the first payments were due were pleased.

With conventional loans, terms were clearly relaxed as they were by housing lenders, create an industry nightmare, when the economy collapsed.

But car manufacturers not much happier with what followed. Lenders went to the other extreme. Sometimes even potential car buyers with top of credit scores could not loan to align. And the leasing deals that had become a large part of the industry but completely dried for everyone. The lack of lending has helped the U.S. automotive market its biggest crisis since the great depression.

On the positive side for credits signing meant that that the customers only the most qualified and responsible. And in turn, delinquencies fell 31.8 per cent between 2009 and 2012 - last year only 1.3 million vehicles will be taken back, according to Manheim, the lowest level in a dozen years.

But even as repo fell, lenders were loosening the terms last year a factor of the unexpectedly strong recovery of the U.S. automobile market which rose to 14.5 million last year. More credit will be required, to an expected volatility fuel the 15.5 million for 2013 could see.

The question is whether the lender on the practice returns that caught up with them during the recession or more qualified buyers to enter the market. The slight increase in the fourth quarter of repossessions are economists like Manheims Webb, reason to be concerned.
