REPORT: Car loan delinquincies jump almost 9 percent
The states with the highest delinquencies are Mississippi (1.62 percent), California (1.46 percent), and Louisiana (1.37 percent). On the other end, those with low delinquencies – and most likely to be paying on time – are found in Alaska (.19 percent), North Dakota (.34 percent), and Wyoming (.41 percent). If there is good news to be found in the report from TransUnion, it is that the average outstanding auto debt fell from the prior year – a direct reflection of owners holding their cars longer and credit tightening on new purchases.
