When you file a consumer proposal your assets, such as your car do not vest in the trustee. That is to say that the proposal would have to be crafted to insure that you get to keep the car. When you meet with a trustee in bankruptcy they can explain that in detail.

In that you are unable to pay your debts in the normal course of events, thus the need for a proposal, the proposal will not hurt your credit score much worse than it is right now. The credit bureau reports the fact of a proposal for three years after the completion of the proposal.
