    7 years from your last payment but it should be done this year..

    Generally 6 to 7 years but it is still possible to improve your credit report and score in the meantime, depending on your specific situation.

    I recently wrote an article that provides a few ideas on what to do and some lenders to consider if you are looking for a financing solution again. You simply need to work with a lender that has specific programs for people with poor or weak credit.

    Good luck!

    Seven to 7.5 years. It should be gone by mid-2011, at the latest, probably by the end of 2010.
