anyone have a solution to this? Cops impounded my car and the car icon disappeared from the impound spot and the Car is not there when I go to look for it.

 

I tried to restart the game, call the insurance (nothing), and mechanic (in the delivery menu it says Adder (impounded), and he won't deliver it). Nothing's worked so far. Any ideas?

 

I got a second vehicle impounded to see if it would disappear too. It didn't; it got destroyed and I was able to reclaim it with insurance. The adder that is apparently impounded--according to the delivery menu, is not getting destroyed when I join new sessions or restart the game. It stays impounded while not appearing on the parking lot. I can't reclaim it with insurance either.

Your car should be in the impound, there's an alley you can run behind to get to it. Have you been inside the impound itself?

You probably waited too long, which results in the police destroying your car and you completely losing it. Or it's a glitch.

If not that wait till the cops destory your car, and if u have insurance just call them and get a replacement.

inside? I only went to the place to check the garages (I walk near them and they open, there's three 2 door garages in that yard), because that's how you got the vehicles back in the story mode. Is it actually different in gta online, and is the alley on the same block as the impound building with the garages?

Yes, in between the impound and the parking garage there is an alley you can go into. You can climb the wall and enter the impound and take your car back. But if it's not in there, the police destroyed it (which they tend to do when you leave the game). It should be obtainable again by calling Mors, but if you don't have insurance, it's gone.

I've checked the around the impound building, the bridge next to it, the alleyway next to the bridge, and the carpark next to the alleyway and I can't see the adder. The mechanic delivery menu says it is impounded but I can't see the car icon, which is weird. How do you even get your car impounded in this game? I just died to the cops and didn't get my other vehicle impounded.

Update: I just got my other vehicle impounded (turns out it wasn't even near the place where I thought it could be recovered from), and it's there but I can't see my adder anywhere. It's completely gone from the game (although it's still apparently impounded). I'm just gonna wait and see what happens to my other vehicle that can still be recovered, when I don't recover it.

 

edit: I joined a new session and my impounded vehicle was destroyed and I recovered it with insurance. HOWEVER, my adder is still "impounded" and hasn't been destroyed (it was impounded before the one that got destroyed, lol).

This happened to me yesterday, the car is actually invisible.. I had to blow it up and re-claim it before it actually stopped being invisible lol.

 

There was the marker that the car was there but i couldn't see it and i tried to get into my friends car which was also impounded and it put me in my car which was invisible.

I had this happen to me, there is one thing you can check to see if its the same problem I had.

 

Call your mechanic, Is the car on the list, but he says he cant bring it because its impounded? and its not at the impound lot?

 

If thats the case its the same issue I had, the car was suddenly back in my garage after about 24 hours, have no idea why, i did submit a ticket tho, that might have been it.

 

It happened because my car got destroyed while i had cops on me, so it got stuck in limbo between the impound lot and the insurance company, probably didnt know where to go that poor thing :/

I just had the same thing happen to me, my car is apparently *impounded* according to my mechanic, but it said it was destroyed. Where and how did you submit a ticket too? my 9f was my baby and i would like to get it back.

They don't take your car to the same impound as in the single player mode.

 

They take it to the lot where you do Franklin's tow missions at in single player.

You probably exploited the game to get the Adder, right? If so, then don't stress. Earn your money and buy a new one.

Because everyone who owns an Adder MUST have glitched, right?

If you drive around in another owned vehicle, that other one should automatically be destroyed. Or so I learned yesterday...

You need to drive another one of your vehicles and then call the insurance company ur adder should be there I've done this a few times after my main car is impounded

 

step 1. call mechanic deliver a diff vehicle

step 2. hop in car

step 3. call insurance

Lmao. My sandking was impounded! I go to the impound lot and nothing is there. When I go to the player vehicle icon it takes me to the FIB building. As if the truck was inside and I've spent like half an hour looking for an entrance but no avail.

Well if it is there, and is listed with the (impounded) make sure that's in the pic btw, then you could call the mechanic, get in another car you own and the sandking should be destroyed. Then you can recover it...

It is astounding how little people actually read.

I'm having the same problem. My Sultan says its impounded, but it is not at the lot, there is no icon on the map, and I've even walked around every parking spot to make sure its not invisible.

There is no way to recover the vehicle, calling a new ride would normally destroy the vehicle that's been impounded, but it doesn't. To make sure, I got my second car impounded, now two of them say impounded, and my sultan is still unrecoverable.
