Difficulty must be on Normal or above for all Reach Achievements.

This Achievement is extremely easy to obtain. During the second mission titled "Winter Contingency" there will only be one drivable vehicle that you can get into. The game indicates it with a waypoint, but ignore it if you want to get the achievement.
Lavindathar Just to add, on my legendary game their were two vehicle spawns. As the OP said, don't get into either of them.

This only applies on the "Rebels Don't Leave Plasma Burns" chapter of Winter Contingecy. As soon as that chapter is over (and Skeleton Crew chapter starts) the achievement will pop.

ChemicalSugar You can't get this on co-op, right?
Because my friend and I did this and didn't get it.

rabidkitty Did you not see my comment above? I mention in a lot of my Reach videos that you have to be on Normal or above.

Epsilon Theta Did it on Legendary and Heroic. Three times in total. No achievement!

Epsilon Theta You can end the mission in two different places depending on where you go first. Ending it at the river I never got the achievement. Rescuing the troopers at the hillside got me the achievement.

Ambo100 The first sentance is EXTREMELY important. I did this on easy difficulty and wasted my time.

Alex Isherwood I believe there is more than one drivable vehicle.
