It depends on who you ask. Some believe that you shouldn’t even try to refinance an auto loan after bankruptcy unless it has been more than 3 years.

If it has been a while since you went through bankruptcy, then you have probably already discovered how difficult it can be to get financing.

It might be that you needed a vehicle and your only option was to take a high interest rate loan. But it is possible that you might not have to be stuck with that high interest rate forever. You should remove the bankruptcy first.
