My son recently did this, I stopped telling him that we were going. I just got him ready and put him in the car. He would get upset and I would calmly tell him it's alright and he needed to stop that. I would tell him that I was going to drive or his dad was and I would ride in the front seat. After doing that for a little over a month, he has settled down. He will still tell us he doesn't want to leave if we ask him, so we don't ask, and then he goes willingly.
