Sure, then the bank will come back and get the vehicle and send it to the auto auction to get as much of their money as they can. Bankruptcy only applies to unsecured loans. The vehicle loan is secured by the title of the vehicle. If you don't pay, see how long it takes the bank to inform you that the vehicle is now theirs.
