comment on the bus, in the car etc. vs. on a bus, in a car etc
What if I was a passenger in someone else's car, would I still be expected to say "I'm in the car"? If so, are there any sitiuations at all where "I'm in a car, on a bus/train/plane" would be appropriate? Or can I safely use "the" all the time?

comment “Time of (the) day”
Yeah, I also got surprised by other people's answers as they were not what I expected. I think I can find hundreds of examples of this 'ungrammatical' usage by native speakers. If native speakers can't use articles correctly, then should I give up learning them now? :)
