I think what we're trying to determine here is what effect closed installment accounts have on your report, and if they're still factored into the FICO score in terms of "mix of credit". You couldn't possibly make any late payments on a closed installment account now, could you? ;-p

Re: Mix of credit impacting FICO?

Yes- IMO closed installments are not considered in mix
 
NOR are closed installment loans considered in "Installment utl"
