If you file personal bankruptcy the rights of your secured creditors are unaffected. This doesn’t meant that you can’t deal with your secured creditors by filing personal bankruptcy, it means that your secured creditor’s right to either be paid or to repossess your vehicle is unaffected. 

The reality is secured creditors don’t want to repossess your vehicle. They know if they repossess your vehicle that they will likely take a significant loss. They would far rather continue to receive payments and collect the full amount owing on their loan including interest. Therefore provided that you are current with your payments and can afford to continue making payments there shouldn’t be any problem with you keeping your financed vehicle even if you file personal bankruptcy.
