US Pirg and the Frontier Group says since 2009, the amount of money Americans owe on their cars has increased by 75%.
Americans owe more than $1.2 trillion on auto loans, the highest in U.S. history.
The study found a significant share of that debt is held by Americans with lower credit scores, who are particularly vulnerable to predatory loans with high interest rates and inflated costs.
