one of my dogs gets car sick. It took me a while to figure out what it was. and even though he's a rescue (not a hav, anatolian), one of his sisters lives in a neighboring city and she gets really car sick.
he's ok for short trips, and does better in certain cars vs. others. but he did barf on the way to see his 2 brothers, 1 hour, with some twisty roads. then his sister barfed on the way back. good times.
If it is car sickness, then yes, you can start with small rides and build up the time in the car, but a friend with a carsick hav, hasn't had much luck.
As far as socialization goes, there are several things you can do acclamate her better to people, but all are long processes.
