(CBS/CNN) - Many signs point to a rebounding economy, but a survey revealed times are still very tight for nearly all Americans.  Bankrate.com discovered 76% of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck still struggling with the great recession.  Fewer than a quarter have enough savings to pay for six months of expenses if they'd lose their jobs and another 27% have no savings at all.   
 
More drivers are having trouble getting their car loan payments in on time.  Credit reporting company, Transunion says that the rate of U.S.  Auto-loan payments at least 60 days overdue is up from last year.  Transunion says the uptick in loan-delinquency is driven by a rise in late payments among borrowers with less-than-sterling credit.  As the economy improves, banks are more comfortable lending to those with bad credit.
