How long does it take a paid off auto loan to reflect on your credit?
I paid off my car in April after over 3 years of making payments that were scheduled for weekly. I've been checking since April and it still does not reflect that my car has been paid off. How long does it normally take to reflect on your credit?

Generally takes about a month. Can take up to two. If you feel it's gone on too long, contact the lender and ask them to report the payoff to the credit bureaus. Be prepared, though -- paying a loan off completely can actually cause your score to dip a bit. Sad but true.
