I wouldn't rely on the magnets for this in the car if I was using a case. I wouldn't have any problem relying on the magnets when the phone is not in a case (I don't use one myself) as the official nexus magnets are very stable, provided you practice with it to get really used to getting it in the sweet spot...it's kinda funny, for me it feels almost like it notches into place if I give it just the right amount of force on the phone) but through the thickness of the case, I'm sure it would be very prone to falling off.
Not to mention when you hit a bump in the road. Come to think of it, maybe even without a case it would be capable of popping off. Don't know, I don't drive. :P
( I do use the official charger at home, mounted in the similar way as what you would have in a car though, it's attached to the side of my dresser which is next to my bed so I can just turn over and look at it if needed, and so it works well with voice commands if I'm taking a nap or whatever. :P )
