My daughter hated the car until she was facing forward too. If possible try to get a chair with a big base so she can see out the window.

Is she still facing backward in the car seat? I try to keep the kids turned backward as long as possible, for safety, but the regs say you have to do it til age 1 or 20 lbs whichever comes last. If she's old enough and big enough, maybe it'll help to have her facing forward...and make sure there isn't a sunshade or anything on the carseat that might be blocking her view to the sides. You could try different kinds of music too...music has been an excellent help with my two...
