If it was a part of the bankruptcy process, no, you aren't responsible. But it has to be specifically spelled out in the petition.

If a car is repossessed and sold at auction for less than the amount owed to the lender will filing bankruptcy discharge the remaining balance if it has been reduced to judgment?

It depends on the chapter. In either case, your remaining debt is now unsecured and a bankruptcy filing places the judgment on hold. If it is Chapter 13, file a claim and you may receive a percentage of the bankruptcy estate, but not usually until near the end of the bankruptcy term (3-5 years). If it's a Chapter 7, again, it's an unsecured debt and highly unlikely that the debtor will sign a reaffirmation to pay you back. If the bankruptcy gets dismissed (thrown out), your judgment is back in force, provided it has not expired.
