Re: Auto Financing day of Chapter 7 Discharge?

My pre filing score was a 575. Post dc is around 560. Both Equifax. I was approved with Ally for a 2016 Spark. I put $500 down and had 20% rebate so I financed $14,300 for a $17000 car. 13.9% interest (I'll refinance in 6 mos or so with my Credit Union) payment of $350 a month.

My score is 460 pre bk, what do you think it will do? Up or down after discharge?

Re: Auto Financing day of Chapter 7 Discharge?

Also, will my old repo matter after discharge? It was a year ago.

Anything included in the bankruptcy will be listed as "included in bankruptcy" they have no way of knowing if it was delinquent or a repo.
I would say it will go up, like a few points. Mine had a 4 point bump once the dc hit.
My #1 recommendation for anyone rebuilding is to find a friend or family member who will add them as an authorized user on their accounts. I was added on my husbands accounts and had an immediate 80 point bump.
Also, look into secured loans from a credit union or local bank. You can usually get these as soon as you have the 341 meeting. I got 2, a credit builder (if you haven't heard of it Google it and ask your local credit union about it, it's AWESOME for a rebuilder) for $1000 and a secured loan through my local bank for $1000.
