^^This guy above me doesn't know what he's talking about. Don't listen to him.

The interest is accrued month after month. So the sooner you pay the car off, the less interest you have to pay. If you pay the total amount off no, you won't have to worry about the interest for the remaining months.

Well he is not totally wrong, you might have to check your loan agreement. Some banks have an early term fee but it's usually no where as high as the intrest. The best thing to do is to go to the bank and ask about an early payoff amount. Also if you have been on time you can ask the bank for better rate for your loan. I know it does not get rid of the intrest but it can help bring the rate down

Exactly.

A pre payment penalty does not equate to the accumulation of interest over the life of the loan. Not even close. Dude was nowhere near right.

When I buy a car I finance it as long as possible for the lowest interest possible with no intent on even taking that amt of time to pay it off. For intense, I just bought a truck for $18k I financed that for 75mo @ 3.4% with no early pay off penalty fee. Now I know I can afford to pay $800mo. So monthly I pay the $240 and send the other $560 to principle. So in the end they will barely make anything off my loan and even if you trade it off before paying it off you can come out on top instead of being upside down like a lot of people who pay the exact amt month to month while the car depreciates faster than they can pay it down.

This is a good idea but most people dont know that you can send in your payment via mail and notate on the check/money order/cashiers check to "apply to principle" the interest is accrued on the principle balance, the lower the principle the lower the interest.

Believe it or not the Dealership found a credit union offering that and my credit is pretty damn good as well.

Yeah i had to explain it to my wife. She was making large payment on her car and all the bank did was push her payments out so she wouldnt have a payment due for like 3 months. I refinanced her car to a bank where at the click of a check box she could submit a Principle Payment at any time for any amt online and had here base payment draft on auto every two weeks. made it alot easier to pay down.

Rule of thumb: Lower the principle as fast as possible.

My rules for buying a car is: Decent Down Payment + Finanace as Long As Possible + Lowest Interest Rate % Possible + Paying as much as possible to Priciple = Loan paid off in shorter amt of time with little intrest charges

How about you just save your money, stack it up, and buy the car straight out for a much lower price... or buy a used cash car, great shape, and have no car payment every month...

The reason you don't want to do it that was is because TransUnion/Experian/Equifax cant certify you as a credible buyer with financial obligations to track your payment history and build your credit score. The way that the other guy does it still requires a length of time to pay but he pays less interest and at the same time builds his credit score up.
