Is she afraid of getting in the car or do you just put her in and her reaction begins when? When the car starts? When it starts moving?

Start with making getting into the car a fun game. Use treats, toys, and an exited tone. Leave the back doors wide open and climb through with her. Once she's comfortable in and around the car, move on to doing the same stuff with the car started. Only when those stages are complete should you take her anywhere. When you do take her somewhere, keep the distance short at first and always make the destination a fun place until she looks forward to car rides.
My beagle used to be terribly car sick when he was a pup, but with time and patience even he will happily hop in the car.
