CAN I BUY A CAR AFTER I FILE CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY? CAN I GET AN AUTO LOAN AFTER I FILE CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY? To the first question: Yes. You can buy a car even on the date you file Chapter 7. About the second question: Yes, you can get a car loan after filing Chapter 7. But, you have to be realistic. You have to show a lender that you can repay the loan back.
