Always shys away when other cars are coming

I think she is either afraid of them, doesn't like the lights or the sound or something...She is fine with cars in any other situation.

I'm not sure how to snap her out of this one - any help appreciated.

Thanks.

How old is she?

Can you desensitize by having her a distance she's comfortable from the road/cars and use treats everytime a car passes so she will LOVE a car when it means a piece of liver/beef/chicken comes with it? Then only gradually get nearer roads/cars as she associates them with GOOD things?

How is he IN the car when you are driving him around and socializing him?
