More Americans are getting car loans. Experts say that for the first and second quarters of this year, loans topped the $1 trillion mark. But, at the same time, the number of people who are failing to make their monthly payments is also on the rise. Chris Kukla is the executive vice president of Center for Responsible Lending, a research and advocacy group that fights against abusive lending practices. He says the number of people who are not making their monthly car loan payments for 30 and 60 days is a red flag. He says hundreds of thousands of people could lose their cars.
