You got jacked! By the cops!

But no. I haven't experiences this. Avoided by only storing 1 custom car. Where you get a bigger garage, you can store 2+ cars inside. Maybe a bike as well.

If it's not in the police impound then possibly in your car garage. (not at safehouse garage)

You have to buy a garage.

Remember to go to the impound as the right character i.e. the person who modified the car, also choose the right car from the list when you get there.

 

Also impounds and garages are not the same thing.

They do not appear in the impound at all even with the right character, I had it stored in my garage but went on a joyride and the car has vanished off the game. I thought it was supposed to be impounded if you left it somewhere?

Each character has a garage to start with.
Shouldn't it be there?

Did you look if it's still where you left it? Happend to me! 

Another time I was frustrated, switched to Trevor and well, you know how it is… after switching back Michael was driving around in the missing car.

 

Also sometimes it takes a while till it comes up at the impound lot. I hope you will get em back! I'm still missing a truck I've bought with Trevor too…

Same thing.

 

Spent $440K on an Infernus with Michael, fully modded it with everything the most expensive as possible, had it for a while and had previously collected it from the impound/garage.

 

Went to get it from the garage, not there. Went to the impound, not there.

 

Now i'm carless & broke...  :sarcasm:

Please fix this, Rockstar!!!! This thing is very important to me in the game... love to have my cars and not lose them. Go to missions, do whatever, and keep my cars. I was thinking that the 5th version of GTA should have this fixed... =(

Today was the first time I tried to use the Police Impound, and I ended up losing my Pegassi Vacca...

 

Playing as Michael, I took my Vacca out of the Vinewood Garage and drove it to the hospital so I could use the helicopter on top of the building. I flew across the city, did a mission, switched to Trevor for a couple missions, switched back to Michael and went to the Police Impound to grab my Vacca, but to my surprise it wasn't there!

 

I also checked my Vinewood Garage, Safehouse, and even the hospital where I left it. It wasn't at any of these locations.

 

Update: Since I stole this vehicle during the Meltdown mission (however, I modified it so I figured it would register as being my car) I wanted to confirm if it was an issue with this specifc car. I loaded the game right before I lost the Vacca and I went back to the Vinewood Garage and took the car out again. I left it out on the street, switched characters and let some time pass by. I switched back to Michael and drove to the Police Impound to see if it was there, and this time it was.

As you can tell R* doesn't give a f*ck about single player.
That's why trackers and insurance is only online.

I thought the lost car thing was fixed but I just bought the expensive 4 door truck (around $40,000) as Trevor, fully modded it, stored it in the garage (not safe house) then took it out off road and sunk it in the swamp while being chased by police. It's now gone. Not in the police impound, not in my garage, not at the safe house. This sucks. And yes I am trying as Trevor the character that bought the truck.

Cars don't show up to the impound because you did not have ownership of it. To get ownership of a car is pretty simple, you just have to bring it to LSC.

 

So, if you take is out of the garage, smash it against a brick wall or something else, and bring it to LSC. Repair it and there you go. It's ''your'' car.

Repeat everytime.
