Gain/Directivity ratio was the first thing I looked at and as expected in this scenario, it is greater than one. By the way , seeding the mesh in the airbox to λ0/6 also did not help.

"unable to recover all surface triangles" most probably means two of the points specifying a triangle are too close to each other thus the triangle becomes a line under the "resolution" of hfss. the reason might be:
1. the object (you removed) is too small
2. the object (you removed) is specified with an edge/point that is too close to edge/point

You can use Waveport. However - you must make sure that it is not too wide nor too narrow (ha !).
1) The waveport must touch all grounds (two coplanar grounds, and in grounded CWG also touch the ground and the bottom (as in microstrip).

2. mesh on the radiation boundary is too coarse, therefore the far field calculation is not accurate.

I think such a structure (a full sized car) is very large (you are simulating a structure that is around 12 lambda * 5 lambda * 7 lambda). For such a large structure matrix inversion used in FEM used in hfss would be extremely lengthy. Have you tried time domain solvers, such as CST Microwave Studio or XFDTD.

The port setup for stripline should extend to the top and bottom grounds, and should be wide enough so that the fields from the trace do not attach to the sidewalls of the port.
For hfss models, the recommended port width is 8*w if w>h and 5*w if wlambda/2 in any direction or a waveguide mode

(1) Using a radiation boundary that is lambda/4 away from the transmission line should be fine. Since you are not simulating an antenna (strong radiator), you may could even use a PEC boundary if its far enough away from the transmission line.

This is a common problem in hfss. As the first post said, seeding the mesh down to 1/10*lambda will make sure the boundary is sufficient. Make sure the conductor has the finite conductivity (no PECs) and include the loss tangents of any substrates.
Also, the radiation boundary doesn't need to be spherical. A box is just as good. The mesh is the
