Help a Reader: To Refinance a Car or Not?

My Personal Finance Journey Homepage

Here’s an email I recently received from a reader:

I have a financial question for you. 

Currently, the interest rate of my car loan is 5.75% per year. And, I am wondering if I should refinance my car loan with a 3.99% interest per year loan that I found with my company’s credit union.

 I have paid off 50% of the original loan amount, and only have ~$7,000 left to pay.

At the current rate I am paying off the loan, I will pay off the loan completely in 3 years from now. I have a good job and a steady paycheck each month, and am 23 years old.

Would it be a good financial move for me to refinance with this lower interest rate loan? Any help would be appreciated.

What’s your advice for her?
