2021 remained a tough year to get financing in if you were struggling with credit issues. According to the Experian State of the Automotive Finance Market Report for the fourth quarter of 2021, subprime loans continue to make up less of the overall market.
Every since the pandemic began, subprime financing has been hard hit by the shift in lending toward a more prime market. In Q4 2021, subprime lending took another dip to just 16.03% of the overall vehicle financing market in the U.S. This is down over half a percent year-over-year from 16.71%, and just over a 3% drop from pre-pandemic levels of 19.84% of the market.
With fewer borrowers taking advantage of subprime loans, there are plenty of prospects out there waiting for your store to give them the opportunity they need. Even though fewer loans were given to borrowers in the subprime and deep subprime ranges, they still make up a significant chunk of the car-buying market, and they need you.
