Refinanced auto loan / original paid off / still shows open on credit report
We traded in one of our cars and financed through the dealership. The week after I called our credit union to refinance the auto loan through them. The new loan shows up on my credit report but the original auto loan shows up as well.

When I am looking at my auto loan balances per credit karma, it shows that I have around $115k in auto loans. This should actually be around $70k in auto loans.

Should I contact the original lender and ask them to fix this? Should I dispute this with the credit bureau?
