High-risk borrowers are having a hard time paying their auto loans. Last year, 8.7% of these subprime loans had late payers. This year, the number is up to 10.9% and climbing.

The government has provided help with delinquent rent and home loan payments as well as student loan payments but there is no help for car payments.
