Good Question

Hey babygirl, paying off your car loan will ding your credit. That's because you lose that tradeline. Also, if possible, NEVER max out a credit card. I will strongly advise you get into the habbit of paying off your balances before your due/cycling date. However, if you do carry a balance, only carry 1/3 of your cc limit. Example: 900 limit only carry 300 each month. I hope this helps!
