Should I refinance my Nissan 370Z to cut my interest rate and pay off the balance sooner?
"My annual salary is about $80,000, and I have a $20,000 car loan with a 6.74% interest rate.
Refinancing this loan will cut my rate down to 3.99%. I plan to pay off the loan within eight months.
Is refinancing my Nissan 370Z worth it?"

“In this case, refinancing your loan should be determined by how much you value your time.
Applying for a refinance, or going into the bank to do the paperwork, might take a few hours. You’ll probably save about $200 or $300 on interest by doing so.
If you’re want to save that money, go for the refinance. But if you value your time at $100 an hour, it might not be worth it.”

"A buddy of mine wants me to cosign for his car loan, but I have my reservations, especially if I'm on the hook for 72 months. Should you cosign for someone who isn't a family member?"
