Default Travelling in the car

Hi all, I am after your opinions and advice if I may?

Our 2 year old Chocolate Lab "Chip" has all of a sudden taken a dislike to the car. He barks, howls and whines throughout the journy and whilst trying to manoeuvre etc. This is only a recent thing, He has not been involved in anything traumatic, has always had pleasant trips in the car and they have always been varied. When I say varied I mean he has not always had the reward of an exciting run through the woods or being fussed over when siting the family, sometimes he will just go in the car to work, or to the shops or just for a drive. He gets exercised regularly and is no problem at home.

Have any of you got any advice on how to maybe stop this behaviour? What do you do in your cars with dogs?

We have dog guards in both cars and have tried metal creates as well as fabric ones and neither seem to make a difference.

I dont believe he is frightened of the car as he will quite happily jump in and out without any problems.

Please give as much advice as you can, It will be very much appreciated.
