Yea, the moment I saw the thread in my mind I did imagine a horse...
Good luck with a car if stuff gets extremely FU (heck even in a zombie apocalypse I would prefer to use horses)...
cars wont be completely useless..
unlike a horse you can use a vehicle as a means of shelter from the elements...
especially in a scenario where you know that rescue and help will NEVER come..a car doesnt need to rest because its fatigued, or it doesnt need to
stop and eat...however a car does need fuel...but you could always syphon gas out of any abandoned vehicles along the way, or if you planned ahead you
could have saved some extra gallons...
regardless...if there is no hope of rescue, you could drive to your nearest creek, or river...park your vehicle and set up permanent camp inside your
vehicle...to eat you could always hunt, or fish off the river...and you will always have a durable movable shelter..to keep you safe from any of the
*bears(for the most part)
the true scary part however is not bears or the lack of food...no...what anyone should fear out of any SHTF scenario above all is PEOPLE...
people will come to take your horse and slaughter it and eat it.
people will come and take your vehicle/shelter/transportation
