    You will have more cash available because you are not having the $210pw car loan ... so if you consolidate your loans, and put this money (or at least a good portion of it) towards your home loan, you will pay your overall debt off much sooner.
    That's what I thought our mortgage repayments are half of car it's us renting interstate that is killing us right now I've considered dropping phi but DS needs it if we run out funding

    Proper car loan's aren't too bad now, depending on who you go through you could get a really good interest rate.
    I don't really care as long as the trade in covers the existing loan so we can start fresh I don't have time to sell etc I don't even have time to look at various cars with DS I will get two days to do things our mechanic recommended Subaru too but there fuel consumption was way too high

    A trade in will almost never cover the loan. A car will depreciate quicker than a loan.

    How much is your car selling on car sales right now?

    Is the 34 owing how much you have on your loan or the payout figure?

    Trade in would not get that figure. Go into a dealership and ask them. You will get a ballpark figure. It will not change much but at least you know.

    If you have the time, definitely sell privately.
