If someone has a civil judgment against you, it is possible that

your assets may be ats risk. However, the laws of most states also

protect a portion of your assets. The types an amounts of property

that you can protect from a judgment creditor will vary be state.

However, it is usually not very cost effective for a judgment

creditor to go after the debtor's car. Having a civil judgment on

your credit history will make it more difficult for you to get a

car loan. It will be difficult, but not impossible.
