The Derelict Vehicles in the world still hold value in Days Gone.
Though the vehicles found throughout the world of Days Gone no longer function, that doesn't mean they are without some use. As mentioned by one of the developers of Days Gone, almost every vehicle is searchable, holding craftable items, oil filters for makeshift silencers, nothing or possible danger. They also can serve as convenient cover from hostiles or vise versa. But, besides all of that, they certainly serve as a grim reminder of the Pre-Infected world.
Before the Outbreak people would use their personal cars to transit from one place to another. Some of them were parked while their owners were at work or out on the town, but others were still in their vehicles when the infection hit. While others had time to evacuate, you will see many instances of people not even having the chance to leave their car to run. Even if they did get away or didn't, their belongings are still in their vehicle, just sitting there waiting for you to claim them.
Aside from their newfound utility, they serve as a grim tale of how fast disaster can strike without warning.
