Auto loan after bankruptcy details?
my bankruptcy is filed i planned to keep my current vehicle a while while i build credit so i can get a vehicle loan for a fairly new reliable vehicle for once in my life after i receive my debt release papers from the court but now my vehicle is really acting up its 27 years old and having problems all the sudden and if don't know if it will last that long so my question is can anyone give me an idea what interest rate am looking at for a vehicle after my bankruptcy is finished and if i can get a newer vehicle maybe 2012 or newer with fairly low mileage from a good dealer not a buy here pay here. i know already i can go the day i receive those papers and get a loan but high interest but has anyone been through this recently? i need an idea of percentage range? Prior to bankruptcy two years ago i was sold a deathtrap almost died and it was like 14% or 17% cant remember witch, am i looking at that high or higher or lower? the lower legal assistant told me I am considered post-bankruptcy a safer, not as high risk or however they worded it because you can’t file for another 8 years so lenders tend to consider you safer after bankruptcy for that reason but she wasn't a credit specialist and i don't know where to get a numeric range as far as percentage i know it won’t be an exact percent am just looking from someone’s recent experience an idea please help and thanks in advance
