If you are filing for bankruptcy, and you try to cosign -- two things can happen. 1. the lender will turn you down. 2. If the court finds out you have applied for credit the bankruptcy can be stopped. If you mean that the car and loan will be for you during or after the bankruptcy, this still has to be disclosed and again the bankruptcy can be stopped.
