Keeping a good TL from aging off

[ Edited ]
We all want the baddies to disappear but what about the golden TLs on our CRs?
 
Can't have our cake & eat it too, can we?
 
I have a very good account, an auto loan for $20k, no lates, that will age off my report in a few months.
 
Due to it's age I guess it doesn't contribute much to my score (?), but I sure like seeing it on my CR.
 
So,  is there any way of keeping it alive?
 
Thanks-

Actually, any closed positive TL reporting helps your scores, just as open positive ones do. I can't think of anything you can do to prevent it from falling off though. Maybe you can ask the lender to keep reporting it but it would be a long shot!
Credit Profile -
FICO 08 Scores (09-16-2014): EQ 824, EX 817, TU 822
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!

Hmmm! Well it's a novel idea. I'll see if I can dig up something and get back with you.

Not much you can do here.. But if you have other TLs with similar Hx you shouldn't take a hit.

Re: Keeping a good TL from aging off

I've got other TLs with perfect histories, but not the age. When this drops off my average age will take a big hit.
 
Also- This is the only automobile loan on my CR. If I need to get an auto loan there will be no prior auto history on record (or is there a special report available to auto lenders that will continue to show this?).
 
Thx

Re: Keeping a good TL from aging off

Well, how's this for an absurd thought?:
 
Send them a small payment and see if they update the date of last activity.  I highly doubt it, but I'd be curiuos to see what they do.  OR the reverse GW letter might work, though I doubt it.
 
I'm betting they don't even had it in your system anymore.
