Our DD was the same, didn't like the car or pram, the one thing that stopped her from crying was a Bob Marley CD. We tried everything and just by chance one of his songs was on the radio and she was silent, first thing we did was buy a whole CD. Worked a treat, it was the ONLY! thing that worked. DD is 3 now and its still her fave Not saying it will work for you but it was our life saver.

OP I've had success today with my 3 month old! Normally even me sitting in the back doesn't help.. he lost it ten minutes from away from home (got that far with him asleep which is rate), we had to pull over and take him out of the seat then BF him to calm him then popped him back in seat whereby he became hysterical again, but! this time I put on 'Kipper' on the iPad and we made it home with him completely mesmerized. Normally I would never use tv as a tool but it beats having him CIO in the car which is something I just cannot do. Give it a whirl, I'm going to buy a thingy to mount the iPad.

OP, I have no words if advice, all 3 of my boys have hated the car, from the moment they were born they would scream bloody murder in the car, nothing I did could stop it from happening. So instead I tried to limit outings and try to keep trips short where I could.
The good news is, they all stopped screaming and started liking the car around 6 months old and from that point, actually started loving it, and it didn't coincide with turning them forward facing because they were all rear facing way past 6 months.
It's hard, but does get better

OP a toy bar really helped DS. He cheered up once we moved him forward facing. Also I found he was getting too hot in his capsule even on cold days. I always drive with the air con on very cold now and DD has been much better.
Kanye West also helped for some reason. I think because I listened to him during my pregnancy.

A mirror helped with DD. She hated it at first but I had no choice due to DS's kinder being 25 mins drive away, so she just grew out of it, was good by about 3 months and happily stayed rear facing until 13 months. I wasn't about to stop the car just because she was crying, but I did avoid any car trips that were longer than 30ish minutes until she grew out of that phase.
