Should I buy a new hybrid car if I just went through Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

"Through bankruptcy, I was able to keep my car and car loan. However, my current car gets only about 22 mpg.

I want a hybrid car that gets at least 35 mpg. Should I get the new car if it will save me on gas, even if I just went through bankruptcy?"

“No, you should absolutely not buy a new car. You just got out of bankruptcy. The last thing you want to do is get back into debt.
Drive your current car until you have to duct-tape the doors on. It’s the only way that you’re going to get yourself out of bad spending habits and crippling debt.”
