No, it should not affect your credit score. Its only if you are 30 days late or more is when a lender can report lates to your CRs. Even though it doesnt affect your CRs, It may affect the relationship with your lender by paying late.

Obviously it's not great for the relationship, and it will probably cause you to pay more than you should (late fees, rush payment if very late, etc). However I was in over my head on an auto loan from Chase 3 years back and was consistently 20-29 days late until the day I paid it off. On my credit report it reads with immaculate payment history. I feel like if I went back to Chase for an Auto loan today however, they'd probably dive into my old account and see how reckless I was.
