How long should I keep my car loan
I recently moved to USA and have no credit history here. I am planning to buy a house as soon as possible so I want to build my credit score ASAP. I got a car loan for this purpose but the interest rate is 9%, so I want to close the loan as soon as possible without hurting my credit score. Some friends suggested to keep the loan for 1 year other suggesting to keep it for 6 months.
