Wrong.... It should go toward the principle.

However - depending on your bank...and if you're not careful.... The bank will sneak it in as your next monthly payments - which is mostly interest (most likely).

If you ever make extra payments on any loan - you need to call your bank and make sure the extra money is going towards principle. Because - they'll screw you if you're not paying attention and don't follow-through with where the money is going.

When doing a balloon payment generally it goes towards principal. You should, however, SPECIFY In WRITING you want it towards principal in case they wanna be a screw (which from what I read here on some threads is entirely possible)
