Bought it online. Left it somewhere during a mission, its not in my garage, not in my vinewood garage (the one that houses newly bought vehicles), not at the impound..

 

Seriously, this new car system is f*cking horrid. Leave my damn car where I left it, don't teleport it somewhere when I step 10 feet away. I drove to the beach and wanted to jetski around a while (Stayed in the same area, didnt stray far) and when I got back it was gone.

 

Purchased a lot of upgrades for it too. Now it's gone and I can't seem to get it back anywhere. What the f*ck, rockstar?

Reload your last save... That's what they are for, in case something happens

Way too late for that, unfortunately- made way too much progress. Not going to redo hours of gameplay because rockstar released a buggy game.

 

Love the game otherwise, but there ARE just a few of these bugs that really kinda irk me.

I have no idea how you guys are f*cking losing cars. I tested the car system couple hours ago, upgraded a truck and I got into a gun fight with a bunch of cops. Got wasted and went to the impound it was there. I checked the impound on my other characters for sh*ts and giggles and it was pulling up cars I used previously, one going to a mission and another from a mission. System works fine for me. Maybe your system is having memory issues or your install is f*cked up.

its hit and miss, i have vehicles in the impound i used for like 20 seconds that i stole, but some that you buy and upgrade might be gone forever

If you drop your car somewhere in the city you really expect it to magicly warp into your garage? Cheese, you lost it.

Unfortunately,  the game is still buggy as fook so yeah, I'm afraid it's lost.. I reinstalled the game on my HDD and that helped to stop the problem a bit, in  the sense that they'd now atleast stay in my garage, still won't get towed though.. just vanish.. I'm not buying or upgrading any cars until the first patch,

Yes, actually, because this is a video game and not a real life simulator.

 

Or, y'know, it could just get impounded, if you really want to go for realism- but that doesn't seem to happen either.

Have you ever waited 5 years for a game to come out including delays (a full year after hiring game testers) and heard a developer babbling on about features that won't even be in the game only to see a game be buggy as f*ck?  I know I have.

 

 

We ain't buyin' nor talking about Bethesda games here.  R* is on a different standard and should have this squared away fair and simple.  I don't know why people get so defensive over a damned company.  These guys just want your money like every one else champ.

Yeah, lost my Vapid Bullet that LSC upgraded for free. I was crusing, accepted beer run mission for my Hen House, had to leave it at observatory, assumed it would be back in my garage. Nope. The way it SHOULD work is that cars saved in house garage or warehouse garage should always come back to you even if you total it and get it stuck in some crack between buildings, until you override that slot with a new car save. We're spending hundreds of thousands on these cars, of course we're gonna wreck them. Especially if one of your neighbors wives pulls left right in front of you...

It's a car icon on the map. Costs $250 to get it back

Clearly the only stupid person on this thread is you. If you would read the posts properly, peoples cars haven't been turning up at the impound.

This have happened way to many times with cars that I've bought. As a result, I keep all my most expensive cars (Z-Type, Bugatti ect.) in the garage and rarely drives them. Its a shame really but I dont wanna loose a 10 million dollar car.

Everytime I have lost a car, even if I didn't buy it, it was at the impound.

 

You have to go to the garage and use the menu to select which you want to buy back. Some people are probably just driving into the parking lot and expecting it to be parked there

if I upgrade a car I garage it ASAP. that seems to fix the impound for me... once the upgraded car is garaged you can use it and it will goto the impound if you leave it... tested a few times

A few players are having absolutely no problem with car saving and impounding. Bout 40% are having major problems with the game saving cars. The rest (50%) of us make up the majority. Using your cars in missions increases the chance of your car disappearing. It wont be in his impound... Just have to wait for R* to patch this car saving problem. Meanwhile, look at my recent thread about this topic. It answers most questions but some info is missing. Ill have to wait till tomorrow to check out some other facts and myths on how and when cars disappear.

But yea OP, your lost cheetah is meant to be impounded but it isnt because R* havent fixed it yet.

I used my customized buffalo even in some missions and it DIDN'T disappear. I think the problem COULD be the fact that some people downloaded the game off PSN when rockstar adviced not to as well as not installing the 2nd disk on Xbox. If not then it's bugs/glitches. You've gotta expect bugs in a game like this.

Do I have to keep posting this? I lost 500k because of this bug but I dont mind, because i still have one of the greatest games ever made and its fun. Dont expect everything to be flawless, they will patch it and then i can go re-mod another car.

I have had this issue with one or two cars, but I've also had an issue of cars duplicating. I've got two modified Tornado's that are identical. I parked it in Michaels Garage, and found another one parked down the street with the same modifications and colors etc. weird.

 

I think they should of had a marker for owned cars, so it shows up on your map.

 

Also I had a car parked in Franklins garage. It vanished from it and then appeared again later.

Yes, it's frustrating (I lost five cars so far, spent quite a lot of money on them), but keep in mind it's far better than IV's vehicle system, where they would just up and disappear no matter what you did.

Still buggy, but better than the last one.
