and i really hate it when in missions half the time it doesn't spawn my car and i have to call that lazy ass mechanic, and hes slow as f*ck and sometimes he would just not stop..and sometimes he'd get back in n try to drive away in it while you\re gettin in ur car,  what happens is you end up punching ur mechanic but im cool wid that. so yea, WTF is with the waiting time for car delivery??

It's so unreliable that there is no real answer to your question.

 

 

Sometimes you can get it to spawn, other times you can't.

 

This kind of unreliability is GREAT when you are getting shot at, holding the objective and desperately in need of a vehicle.

After dealing with the sh*thead mechanic for awhile, I've noticed he won't come unless there is a building or some sort of decent sized obstacle nearby. Apparently the game won't let him spawn unless he's behind something. So when you call him and you don't see your vehicle icon right away, just run towards somewhere where there's a building/obstacle...he'll pop up soon enough.

Yet another poorly tested portion of the game. I have been playing online since it was launched and the laundry list of glitches and poorly planned out gameplay is starting to make the game unbearable.

I always have to call him at least three times to get him to deliver my car but the reason your car might not be spawning is because you haven't taken it out of your personal garage. Even when I spawn in my apartment before a mission, I always go to the garage, take a car out then join a job. I've always had it spawn straight away when I do this. If you don't, it can't decipher which one to pick, even if you only have one.

The game just can't figure it out sometimes. I'll call him, wait, get a negative response, not move, call back, car instantly.

I then beat him to death for his retardation.

I hate my mechanic. He always gets a swift punch to the face when he drops my car off.

 

The number of times he either says he can't get there right now, or parks it on the wrong road or passes me and continues to drive around the block then come back to me with my car is unreal. So when he gets out I run at him and knock him clean out.

 

I thought the taxi service which parks miles away from my location was bad, but the mechanic is terrible.

Is it just me or the mechanic rarely delivers your car at the first try? In my case almost 100% of the times the mechanic successfully delivers my car at the second try.

the mechanic is a genius compared to the taxi drivers they are retarded they always seem to take you the opposite direction of where you want to go.

I've also had a glitch that seems if you approach the car after delivered too quickly, he will act as an NPC getting 'his' car stolen and drag you out and drive off! f*cking stupid. I must of killed the mechanic more than I've killed other players... ahah

 

not to mention sometimes he just drives off anyway after appearing. so irritating running after the c*nt at Fort Zancudo or something. 

I ALWAYS kill the mechanic now.

your mechanic is f*cking with you. 

he cant seem to find you in the middle of a major intersection,

but he has no problem delivering your sh*t to an abandoned dirt road in the middle of f*ckall

That f*cker is getting a lot of hate from me these days. He's the most unreliable motherf*cker, especially when it matters that he show the f*ck up NOW. I haven't killed him yet but he's gotten a few severe beatings.

i hate the wait timer... especially when there is someone in a tank in the session. They destroy your car....and you call to get your car then the tank destroys it...then you call again and then you have to wait for the damn timer...by the time that ends your killed numerous times by the guy in the tank.

My favorite moment.

 

*Call mechanic*
"Naaah no. I can't get there right now!"

"The FU*K ARE YOU DOING!?!? YOU HAVE NO LIFE OTHER THAN TO FIX MY CARS!!!!"
A few seconds after I get the notice that I just paid my mechanic bills.

"RAAAAGE!!!"

The thing that I hate the most about it is that he'll call me, say " Hey boss, if you ever need your wheels call me" I will then call him immediately and he'll say sorry I cant deliver it right now -_-
