What’s the term on the loan? That interest rate is low enough I’d just invest if you’re going to be paying the car off anyway in the next 3 years. If you instead want the mental relief of not having a loan, then that’s up to your preference and shouldn’t hurt you much either way you choose.

Yea. I guess I’m trying to see what would be better for me mentally. Lol.

Invest buddy. I have a 2.99 note too. Paying only the minimum plus $50 extra.

What are you investing in?
