To dream about driving a car indicates your will to succeed, your determination, and your talents for moving from one aspect of your life to a different one. You should consider how rough or smooth the ride in this car is. It also depends whether you are the driver or just along for the ride. This will represent your role in life as either a participant or an observer. If you are in the backseat, this represents your low self-image and that you are allowing those around you to take control of your direction. You need to evaluate your self-esteem issues. This dream represents the level at which you are dependent upon others and the amount of direction you maintain within your own life.
To dream that your car is stolen suggests that your personality is being taken away from you. This could be related to a loss of employment, relationship, or another circumstance in which your sense of self plays a role. If your car is overheating, you may be spending too much effort and should take it easy or risk burning out. You could be accepting too much responsibility and this will lend itself to destruction.
To dream about being in a parked car represents that you should focus your energies on some other aspect of your life. Your current situation may be fruitless. Also, a parked car may indicate that you should slow down and take a moment to savor life. If you cannot find your parked car, then this suggests that you are lost in life and need to find direction.
To dream that you are nearly hit by a car represents that your ambitions in life may not be in line with others' ambitions. You could have also experienced a wounded ego or traumatic situation.
