I think for those who criticize Kim's decision to leave the car, you have to remember that although in theory staying in the car gives you the best chance to survive, there were also cases where people had stayed in the car and perished eventually. Had he been alone by himself, I'm sure he would have chosen to stay with the car. But after 7 days' wait, they were really facing the possibility that nobody was going to find them in weeks. Whatever action he took, it was to maximize the chance for the wife and kids to survive. The minute he stepped out of the car, he knew there was a fair chance that he would die out there.
