In the first goodbye scene, when Sam hugs Will, her hands keep changing place: first the left is behind his neck, then suddenly is the right one, then again the left.
When Forest Whitaker pulls the gun on the would-be robbers at the gas station he opens the trunk of the car. When he and Theo get in the car to leave the trunk is magically closed.
When Will takes the gas cans from the train wreck chances are they would have been diesel fuel as army vehicles are usually diesel powered.
When Will and Tom stop for gas after leaving Chicago, there is no electrical power. They would not have been able to pump the gas at the gas station because the pumps in the scene are operated electronically.
Towing a car with automatic transmission risks causing serious damage to the power train. Chances are that the car would have been inoperable after that, rather than capable of doing backwards handbrake turns and other stunts later on.
While Will is driving and Tom is injured in the back seat they hold a conversation via the rear view mirror. The shots of Tom reflected in the mirror though have been flipped and show him as if he was seated on the other side of the car. You can tell the shots have been flipped as the reflected image looks like Tom has a band around his right wrist while for the rest of the movie it is actually on his left.
Near the beginning, the morning after Will has dinner with the Sutherlands, he is in bed sleeping when a low flying plane flies over, making a lot of noise, yet he is able to hear the mobile phone that's barely making a buzzing sound.
After Will has driven through the ash cloud, the part of the windshield where the wipers cleared the ash is perfectly clean. There would be some smearing.
Crew or equipment visible
When stopped by the police at the Ashland Heights barrier, Will looks out the car window while he's wearing some sort of plasters on his forehead, cheek and nose.
Errors in geography
When driving from Coeur d'Alene, ID to Seattle, WA the road signs continually show I-5 North to Seattle. I-5 runs from North-South between Canada and the border with Mexico, passing through Seattle. Will is travelling from East - West across northern Washington State. He would be travelling on I-90 West between Coeur d'Alene and Seattle (passing through Spokane, WA) if he stayed on the freeway.
When Will is on video chat with Sam, and things start happening where Sam is, he asks her what's going, then, when he starts to say "Can you hear me," he pushes the End Call button.
