I think our main concern is in calling for some type of federal policy that affects the issuance of credit cards or any credit to consumers. This is a very competitive business and it does provide a great amount of convenience to consumers. Any effort to curb that would affect a lot of lower income consumers disproportionately.
Bank loans have pretty attractive interest rates these days. Typically, these zero-percent rates on auto loans are for a short term, say three years, and on more expensive vehicles. People end up buying the car, but use a bank loan to do so. Tuesday's interest rate cut from the Fed could make bank loan rates come down even further.
