There are two sentences, and each of them is correct:
My car is broken – let’s go by bus.
My car is broken – let’s go on the bus.

Are there any stylistic or other differences between these sentences?

"My car is broken" is not natural.

'by bus' and 'on the bus' mean the same in this context.

I think he means this: My car has broken down.
