What does it mean when you dream about a car?

A boxcar on a train, a car in an amusement park ride, a lift car on a ski tram, or an elevator car may symbolize the self, and many car dreams denote self-control issues. Taking charge of one’s life would be indicated if one were “in the driver’s seat.” Allowing one’s life to be driven by others might be indicated by a “backseat driver” or by “taking the backseat.” The dreamer may be being driven to new heights before he or she is ready. Or perhaps the dreamer is finally lifting himself or herself out of a rut. The emotional feeling about the car determines the meaning. (See also Vehicles.)

Car

(dreams)
The car in your dream may symbolize the physical self or ego development and ego function. In that, it represents the way that you travel through your life’s journey. Consider all of the details in the dream, including its emotional content (i. e., difficulty of the road, identity of the driver, direction of the incline). Recurring car dreams usually deal with life’s major themes that may include issues of control and sensibility. By carefully examining this dream, you may gain insight into important areas of life, including how well you are navigating from one stage of your life to another, if you are assertive and take charge or are passive. Dreaming about traveling in a car is a very, very common dream theme that provides valuable information in regard to a specific part of or long-standing theme in your life’s journey.
