Auto Loan: Is it a good idea to pay it off entirely early?
I have less than $1000 owing and I have been reducing it fast. It is possible that I will pay it off within a couple of months (two years early) but I have heard that it will adversely affect my credit score if I do so. I could quit the high payoffs and stagger the debt, again, for the next two years if that helps my score but need some advice.
