And that financial burden gets pushed directly to consumers.

I'm already baffled as to how normal people can afford a new car. Even with seven (Seven!!!) year car loans, the monthly costs for a typical new car are far too high for me to justify. It seems impossible to me for the median household income (~$52k) to buy a median priced car (~$33k).
