Can I pay off a car loan early, or do I have to make monthly payments for the next 5 years?

I am paying off a 5-year car loan with monthly payments of $400. Can I pay off the loan early or do I have to pay this monthly amount for the next 5 years?

Every time of automobile loan that I'm aware of allows for prepayments. Review your loan documents and it should be clearly stated.

Retiring debt early is a great way to free up cash flow and build wealth! If you can pay extra each month toward your outstanding balance, I hope you'll take advantage of it.

Best of luck!
