Dear Friend,


From what I gather from your question, You save interest. This is because, the loan that was taken in March 2010 was to be fore 48 months so, that would roughly end on March 2014 approximately.


Now, if you repay in full in August 2011, you would pay 58 days interest, i.e. approximately interest on additional 2 months. In this case, you would still save on the interest that you would have otherwise paid from October 2011-March 2014.


I hope this helps...

Warm Regards,
