One way to pay off your car loan more quickly is to increase the amount you pay each month. If you pay more than the minimum payment any extra should be applied to the principal amount of the loan. This will decrease the amount of interest you pay over the life of the loan and therefor reduce the amount of time you pay on the loan. Another option would be to use any extra money, like tax refunds, bonuses, etc. to make an extra payment on your car loan. This link has more information:
