Why not "my own car"?

Because that would be "To mój własny samochód" and it's something you would say if you'd be asked if you really own it yourself or if it's your parent's or friend's car.

In case of "prywatny", though, we're talking about a car you own for your private use and it's not company-owned and used just for work. If it's a company car, then you'd say "To samochód firmowy".
