In re Jackson (05-58183)

A vehicle purchased for the primary use of a nondebtor spouse did not fall within the scope of the hanging paragraph to ยง 1325(a) because the was not purchased for the "personal use of the debtor." When Congress has wanted to include family or household use within a provision it has done so expressly; it did not do so in the hanging paragraph.
