Could I get another car loan ?
Hi There,
So I currently have 1 year left on an auto loan that I could or could not pay off early, the amount is less than 2500. I "want" to buy another car just for a fun side/weekend car and the total would be about 15k for that. I have pretty good credit, never late but not too many accounts on my record 1 car loan and 3 credit cards, my FICO is atleast 780 and I know it isn't much but I gross 55k a year. I just want to know if I am better off paying my current auto loan off first then applying for another loan or apply for a new loan now and just keep paying my current loan full term. What do you think would be better in terms of approval and good for credit building?
