I bought a car (a "Crusader") on the Internet with Franklin. Then I got an order confirmation email saying that my car had been delivered. But it's not in Grove Street garage (I bought the garage previously) and it's not at Franklin's house.

 

Has anyone else bought a car online or knows where it gets delivered to?

Do we need to buy garages before we can order cars via internet? because i can`t click the "order"-button .

You need to buy a garage first, vinewood garage i think. costs 30k. every car you buy online will be there.

I bought a sports car, a dirt bike, a bmx and a mountain bike yesterday. I was confused at first too because they didn't appear in my garage (in Vinewood Hills). Go to Grove St Garage (as Franklin), that's where they are stored. You don't need to buy the garages but you might have to unlock them...I'm not sure but it should be marked on your map.

 

Also, if you lose your (legally owned) car and you can't find it...go to the impound. It will be there. You don't need to wait for a email/text message saying to pick it up.

Same here. I never paid for them. Like I said in my post...maybe they unlock at a certain stage? I don't know but they've been there from the start I think.

Nah, they are already unlocked even though i didn't buy them. Used them a few times too.

This is something the game doesn't explain that well.

 

There is confusion between the safehouse garage, and your actual garage.

 

Each character has a safehouse garage at their residential property, and also an actual garage, Michaels is Vinewood garage, Franklins is Grove street garage.

 

These are the garages your online purchased vehicles will go into, I would also recommend storing upgraded and stolen vehicles in these garages, as they appear more 'stable' than the safehouse / residential garage.
