Ok so I don't really understand what the difference is between buying a car and upgrading it and then stealing a car and upgrading it and putting it in your garage.

 

Is there any difference? In both ways do the cars get impounded?

 

Also, is the insurance just for GTA Online?

When you buy a car, you own it.

 

When you steal a car, you still dont.

When you steal a car there is a chance that someone will call five-0, that a cop will try to pull you over, or that the owner of the car you stole comes after you. When you buy the car on other hand, it's yours.

you can get insurance for bought cars but you can't get insurance for stolen cars (correct me If I'm wrong though)

 

so basically if your stolen customized car is trashed, you won't see it again

But you cannot change the plates and make a stolen car yours?

One is illegal and the other one isn't.

I can't find where to get insurance. Is it not only for Online?

From what I understood from the videos you have insurance offline and online but I really can't confirm that, try looking into the internet in your ingame phone

I searched insurance on eyefind, (the in-game search engine), and I couldn't find anything.

maybe you have automatic insurance when you buy a car, if that would be the case though you should have your car in your garage but some people said you have to go to some place and get it if you wreck it or leave it behind... so I really dunno kinda confused now

wanna know that too. i still have no idea how the impunt works.

 

when I loose the personal cars of franklin or the others, they still stand at their house. but then it say me that the car is at the impound. and you only can get back one car so I dont know which car you can get back when you drove one, get out, get in another one and so on... which car does it choose for the impound garage? and where can I get back an insured car?

I know if you elave your car somewhere, it goes to an impound lot.

I dunno, I don't get it either.

 

I spent about 50K upgrading a cool car for Franklin. I could have sworn I left it in his garage at his house. But now it's not there, it's not at grove street garage and it's not at the impound. Makes no sense.

But you can't buy all cars, so that wouldn't really make much sense if we could only permanently keep about the 20 or so cars available to buy. It's pretty annoying, such a waste of money.

Funny how the reviews fail to mention this. I hope Rockstar speaks out on this?

Well, in GTA Online, you can steal cars and put a tracker (or insurance). If you buy cars such as a Adder online, it'll be sent to your garage and it'll automatically have a tracker and insurance set on it. (Note: To buy cars online in GTA Online, you must have a apartment or garage for it to be sent to.)
