Coronavirus Car Payment Relief Program
Due to COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, a number of Americans are facing, and will face financial hardship, finding themselves unable to pay all of their bills. One of those bills may be auto payments. To that end, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has put together a list of automakers and lenders that are offering borrowers avenues of relief. This list will be updated regularly to help you figure out if making your next car payment is one worry you can let go of for the time being.
