If loans are discharged in bankruptcy, can a debtor still be held liable for paying them off?

Question Details: My husband and I went through Chapter 7 about 2 years ago. Everything went through fine and our case was closed. We had 3 loans with a local credit union, a visa, and 2 car loans. We surrendered 1 car and the visa was dismissed in the bankruptcy. We recently paid off the final car loan and were waiting for the title; I called today because I had not received it. I was told that they would not release the title and that a lien was on the vehicle until the other 2 loans were paid in full. Can they do that? Both the loans they are referring to were dismissed in the bankruptcy.
