Two more days...

Illustration for article titled Two more days...

...and I make my final car payment on the Mazda5. Just a partial payment of $205 and she’s all mine. It was a bit of a challenge to keep up the payments during that period of unemployment last year, but thanks to Bank of Dad I didn’t face repossession.


Does anyone know how this will affect my credit score? I’m assuming that I should get a decent bump for paying off such a large loan, but I don’t know how many points I can expect. I’m still recovering from the previously-mentioned unemployment, so any boost will be good, but I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment by expecting too much.
