I am in the market (and need) to refinance my car. I have 9 months of good solid on time payments. Recently I have come into a bit of a struggle and would like to refi to save money. The original plan was to try and refinance after my year but is 9 months of good history enough? Ive been told that I can also take out the loan for MORE than the car amount and use that extra towards car repairs (God forbid I need them) or other bills that I need to get down to a zero balance.
I owe less than 10K on the car. I was thinking of asking for a refi of about 15k. Does this sound ridiculous?
Any and ALL advice is welcome.

Ive researched that already. The average between the trade in and personal sale of my car was $10, 838.50. I still owe about $10,044.52 on the loan (December payment doesnt come out til the 16th) so I will be well under the value of the car as far as the loan is concerned. Im not even sure if that matters or how, I just crunch number in hopes of one day making sense of it all.
