If you plan on having $43000 in the bank within 2 years, why couldn't you first use a portion of that to pay off the car loan, then use the extra savings that puts in your pocket to pay off the other loan?

The reason is because if I refinance and have a small payment, this will enable me to save the $43000 a lot easier within 2 years. If you notice above, I will cut my payments in half. That's why they call it leveraging.

Also the installment loan is secured with my home property with a 5.8% interest. The car loan is around 5% as well.

Interesting thoughts from all of you.
