Yes. Since the "Car Sales Company" went into bankruptcy, your financial agreement with your "Creditor" (bank, credit card, credit union, etc...) has not dissolved the loan. Check with your creditor (who you send your monthly to?) and/or continue paying for your car. This will help you keep your own personal credit in good standing.

Does bankruptcy ruin your credit?

This is an incorrect assumption that leads many people to avoid filing for bankruptcy. They fear that a bankruptcy will ruin their credit for a long time and that they will not be able to use credit, rebuild their credit or purchase a home in the future. The reality is that the majority of the people who are considering bankruptcy, already have poor credit, due to late payments, repossessions and foreclosures. Further, most people who file for bankruptcy can rebuild their credit to a relatively good level after two years. This depends significantly on what they do after filing for bankruptcy. It is important that you work toward rebuilding your credit after filing for bankruptcy.

Yes, in fact they might ask the debtor if that is what they are considering. It is the opinion of some that a creditor might rush to file suit but this is a ridiculous argument, as lawsuits can be stopped and then discharged in bankruptcy. Also it takes an average of 15-20 months for the typical creditor-debtor suit to reach court, as opposed to the average bankruptcy filing of a few months.
