iPhone 5 audio playing through phone and not car

Has anyone experienced their music/podcast audio playing out of their phone instead of the car speakers?

Every once in a while, I plug in my iPhone 5 (connected via lighting USB cable) and the audio will not play on my car speakers, even though iDrive is showing the progress of the music playing. Instead, it's playing on my phone.

Sometimes it will get fixed if I disconnect and re-connect the phone. Or oddly enough if I play a different track through by finding it through searching. It doesn't fix itself if I turn on/off the volume or skip to the next track in the playlist. It's very strange and frustrating. I never had this problem on my iPhone 4.

I'm going to try a different cable, but thought I would check to see if anyone else has had this problem.
