I've not had that issue with any Baofeng I've run in a vehicle, using the stock antenna, or a vehicle mounted external antenna. If you're using a duck/whip antenna inside the vehicle, understand performance is going to suck, and you'll get full dosage of any RFI being generated by the vehicle--it's the RF equivalent of someone farting in an elevator next to you.

The first thing to try is an antenna outside the vehicle, even if it's just a cheap mag mount. That will get your antenna exposed to a LOT more signal, and the vehicle body will help block RFI generated by the vehicle.
