I would say "my father drives his car to work". 1 is probably the most acceptable of those choices though.

================
I'd like to know whether the following expression is grammatical or not.

2. My father goes to work by his car.

• English -

#s 1 and 3 are good; #1 is best.

#2 is not correct. In this sentence, when you say "by his car," you are saying that he passes by his car on his way to work -- which doesn't make sense!
