If you are driving instead of traveling by feet, you'll maybe faster, yes, but I think it's more anventure-filled, if you are sneaking the whole way to your target and discover places which could be important for prospectively quests. With a car under your backside you'll be a greater target, you have to drive on roads (well, if you are smart enough) and also the cars don't look very kewl or something. ^^|

If I remember correctly it was stated somewhere maybe an interview that there will most likely not be visible damage to the vehicles in the forum of damaged panneling and windows but that the vehciles mechanics could be damaged and wear and therefore needing repair maintanence.
The problem with depicting busted up cars taking dynamic damage is that you have to buy the licensing from the car makers to depict that as it is related to their public image. Thats why you see most car games with dynamic damage having non reality cars that are similar to real cars but different enough to avoid licensing issues.
Sidenote: It was however mentioned in an interview that as they drove the vehciles around in ditry/muddy areas a different layers of grime and dirt began to build up on the outside of the vehicle.
They have to buy the rights to make realistic car damage for a Moskvich? or a Niva 4x4? or a KAMAZ truck? These are not brand names I beleive but just names of the types of cars. Im sure Kamaz Autos wont care lol.
MOre than that! I had read a very recent interview (two weeks old or more that the care require regular maintenance. Without it, the car might have a problem, flat batteries, and eventually wouldn't start at all!
Which means in the game they would probably be a mechanic.

From the halls of Montezuma To the shores of Tripoli'
We fight our countrys battles In the air', on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom , And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title Of United States Marines.
Our flags unfurl'd to every breeze From dawn to setting sun';
We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job - The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy Ever gaze on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines. - US Marines Hymn
