In Fallout 4, a large number of pre-War vehicles can be found by the player character scattered around the wasteland. These vehicles can be scrapped for resources if within the boundaries of a workshop. Depending on gameplay choices, the Sole Survivor is able to call in a vertibird to transport them to another discovered location.
Many seemingly inert vehicles that take sufficient damage will explode quite violently - similar in sound and appearance to a mini nuke - doing considerable damage to anyone nearby. Vehicles may also catch fire after taking some damage, starting a process by which they will then detonate after the fire burns for a brief period.
A telltale sound can be heard with a vehicle catches fire, and a warning vehicle symbol will be displayed if the Sole Survivor is nearby such a vehicle, indicating the danger of an imminent explosion. Vehicles that explode leave an irradiated area for a brief period of time afterward.
