Why can't my wife and I talk hands free to each other on our phones in our cars?

The wife and I have the same phone, Galaxy S8. We both have it plugged into our stereos in our respective cars when we drive so we can talk hands free. If I call her from my car, and she's *not* in hers, there is no problem. Likewise, if she calls me from her car and I'm not in mine.
But if I call her from my car, and she's in her car, then she can't hear me at all (although I can hear her just fine).
I don't have this problem calling anyone else, nor does she. The only time this happens is when we're *both* trying to use hands free in our car (mine is plugged via wire into an aux port, hers connects via bluetooth).
Anyone ever experienced this? It's driving me crazy.
I've even replaced the aux port in the car (not because of this, it just stopped working altogether), and the problem remained the same.
