A minimum discharge period of 12 months is usually required
In general, before applying for a car loan financiers will require you to be discharged for a minimum of twelve months, have no adverse credit history on your credit file since you declared bankruptcy.
Also question is, can I buy a car during Chapter 7?
Yes, you can buy a new (to you) car while your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case is pending. If possible, wait until your discharge has been granted as that will give you more negotiating power with the bank.
Furthermore, does a bankruptcy automatically come off?
Dear ENZ, You don’t have to do anything to have a bankruptcy removed from your credit report. The bankruptcy and any included accounts will be deleted automatically. The discharge date is the date the bankruptcy plan is completed after being filed.
Does Carvana work with bankruptcies?
Can I apply for Carvana financing?

Getting approved for a car loan after bankruptcy may seem impossible. And bankruptcy can show up on your credit reports anywhere from seven to 10 years after you file. But the good news is there are lenders willing to work with people with bankruptcy on their credit reports — though your interest rate may be high.
If you filed Chapter 13, you can either: wait for your discharge, which will not be entered until your repayment period is over (between three to five years), or. get court permission to take out a car loan while your case is still pending.
Ideally, you should at least wait about six months before you apply for an auto loan. That gives you time to repair your credit and rebuild credit, too. You make payments on any loans you have left to build a positive credit history. If possible, you can get a secured credit card to build more credit history faster.
As with most types of loans, the lower your credit score, the higher your interest rate. A borrower who filed for bankruptcy just one year ago might receive an interest rate of 10.3% for an auto loan, while someone without a bankruptcy would have a 7.8% interest rate for the same loan, according to LendingTree.
