" The mortgage is 6%. "

So you save more interest by paying down the mortgage rather than the car. That probably doesn't do anything for your cash flow, however, until the house is paid off.

At the low rate you are paying on the car, the question is whether to pay down the mortgage or invest. Clearly you should be putting into your 403b enough to get any employer match.

Best wishes, Chris
