    Sorry. It was a typo. I meant to say "mud".

    Re: has/is stuck

    I'd say only His car is stuck in the mud.

    Re: has/is stuck

    In BrE, you can say "His car has got stuck in the mud" or "His car has become stuck in the mud" too, but "His car is stuck in the mud" is the most common and natural.

    Those are fine, but has stuck sounds odd to me.
