“It’s absolutely possible for you to get a loan. You shouldn’t have that much trouble finding financing.
However, you will be considered high-risk to lenders and should expect to pay more than you would have before your financial troubles started.
On top of charging a higher interest rate, most lenders will also require a larger down payment. This can make buying a car after a bankruptcy a bit difficult, but know that the longer you wait after a bankruptcy, the better your options will be. “
