Car Loans After Bankruptcy
Many of the questions we get asked have to do with qualifying for poor credit auto loans following a personal bankruptcy. In most cases, Yes you can apply for an auto loan. But only after completing a bankruptcy.
There are two ways to finish a bankruptcy - a discharge or a dismissal.
If the bankruptcy has been dismissed, this signals an unsuccessful completion and your application for a bad credit auto loan will usually be turned down.
If your bankruptcy has been discharged, this signals a successful completion and your application for a bad credit auto loan may now be approved.
After completing a bankruptcy, you will have to begin repairing your credit. There are two types of credit - revolving credit and installment credit. You'll need to establish both.
A credit card is an example of revolving credit. If you don't qualify for a standard credit card, then apply for a secured card. This is where your credit limit is determined by the balance in a special savings account you set up.
An auto loan is an example of installment credit. It requires you to sign a contract and agree to pay a fixed amount for a fixed term (such as $300 per month for 48 months).
