You're neglecting to mention that there is a structural element of economy and work that 'drives' the car and it's culture. Consuming is not the issue as I see it. I could see cars in a retro futuristic post-economy world having less of a problematic context. Think of a younger Roman Polanski and that old antique that he would drive back in the 60s. That could be a type of post-economy car use that is preferable to what exists now. I see the car as more of a use value utility then a transactional phenomena.
