According to fed researchers, 6.5 percent of car loans are 90 days or more past due, compared to 0.7 percent of credit union-serviced loans.

Faye Park, president of the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, told the Washington Post:

"Predatory lending practices and a lack of real transportation options leave many households trapped in debt with few ways out."

Senior director at Fitch Ratings, Michael Taiano, added:

"Your car loan is your No. 1 priority in terms of payment. If you don't have a car, you can't get back and forth to work in a lot of areas of the country. A car is usually a higher-priority payment than a home mortgage or rent."

The U.S. housing mortgage industry is valued at around $9 trillion; the auto loan market, $1 trillion.
