Lender invest­ments are expect­ed to come increas­ing­ly under pres­sure as cred­it tran­si­tions from an excep­tion­al peri­od of low risk to one of decid­ed­ly high­er risk. Cred­it con­di­tions will con­tin­ue to be favor­able for some time, but not at quite the same unprece­dent­ed lev­el. Cred­it con­di­tions are expect­ed to weak­en for auto loans. This will put down­ward pres­sure on used vehi­cles prices, as will expand­ing pool of used vehi­cles.
