Using tenses

I'm a beginner at grammar and my question is:
I always go to work by car
I'm always going to work by car
Can the second sentence in it's tense form be used when complaining about something? in this case going to work by car.

    Well, yes but it would mean complaining about the fact, not the conditions. And it's not an obvious sort fact to complain about.

    The PRESENT PROGRESSIVE would be more natural in, for example
    I always go to work by car, and I'm always arriving late.
    I always go to work by car, and I'm always having to wait in traffic jams.
    I always go to work by car, and I'm always stopping at level crossings.
