A common complaint from low-income families and consumer advocates standing up for them is the lack of available financing options.

Oftentimes prospective auto loan borrowers wonder how much they can afford when it comes to financing a vehicle. What percentage of one’s income is the perfect amount to ensure one doesn’t fall into default? Default usually occurs when borrowers take money out for an amount outside of their means to repay.
