Paid Off Car Loan

I paid off my car loan almost a month ago, is that going to make my credit score go up?  If so, how long does it take to show?

probably will make your score go up a little. As with anything reporting, it should take 1-2 months to show.

 

welcome to the forums

I'm a personal banker and do a lot of auto loans serving the Houston area.
I suggest first time car buyers to read the sticky guide in the auto loan section.
I try to check these forums often, but if I missed your post, please feel free to message me with a link to it.

Re: Paid Off Car Loan

Same just happened with the wife and I. Paid off our auto loan 2 months early and our scores dropped about 30 points. Figure that one out!

Also curious as why on our reports it now shows as CLOSED/ Crdit LIMIT -0- / Balance $533 ?  Should the balance not show as -0- also ???
