Recommended Posts

okdan

i purchased a truck with franklin and fully modded it also i bought a car with michael and fully modded that also, but they have vanished after leaving them somewhere and are not appearing in the impound, what is the point of buying a car if this sh*t happens... Anyone else experience this?

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)

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.

bought my car for half a million dollars and spent 200K on upgrades and its look. Left it in a parking lot and moved a few metres away to buy a storage for my boats. When I got back it wasn't there, neither in my garage nor the impound. Same thing after reopening the game. I really hope this gets fixed and that I find my car. Pray for me people🙏🙏🙏

I logged onto GTA story mode today to do a mission with Micheal and the purchased car I had been driving (fully upgraded) wasn't in the garage where u usually park it so I went down to his garage down the road and it wasn't there either, I checked the impound but it's got two cars I purchased with Trevor instead of Micheals car, and I checked it with Trevor and his are two stolen cars, already checked the locations I last had the car in I have a save from just before I lost there car, should I go back to it to get the car or any ideas to recover it??

Yes, this happens in the game frequently if you let autosave on, allow me to expand on this:

 

Autosave triggers whenever you do one of the following:

 

-Buy new clothes or accessories;

-Buy/remove tattoos;

-Buy new guns;

-Buy a new haircut;

-Buy any vehicle on the websites;

-Complete a mission, strangers and freaks or random events;

-Finish hanging out with any friend;

-Get wasted or get arrested.

 

There are some more triggers but I can't remember then all now.

 

So, everytime the game autosaves, it checks on your progress, your money, your stats and armor, health and special ability bars...And it also checks on EVERYTHING that you own.

 

Including the vehicles that you have put into storage(the warehouse garages, hangars, helipads and the marina spots) AND the vehicles in your safe house garage.

 

So, if you decide to grab your multi million dollar supercar for a spin, decide to buy some sh*t or do ANYTHING that triggers the autosave feature, the autosave feature will see that YOUR GARAGES DOES NOT HAVE YOUR MULTI MILLION DOLLAR SUPERCAR...Because you took it out of the garage and are driving it.

 

Later on, if you load up whenever that autosave triggered...You won't have you car anymore because the game understood that you got rid of your multi million dollar car.

 

THIS IS NOT GETTING FIXED BECAUSE THIS IS HOW THIS SYSTEM IS PROGRAMMED TO WORK, SINCE 2013. ITS WORKING AS INTENDED AND ROCKSTAR HAVE LONG SINCE ABANDONED THE SINGLE PLAYER PART OF THIS GAME.

 

 

So, here are some suggestions for you to deal with it:

 

1) Play the game with the autosave feature turned OFF;

 

2) ALWAYS check out which vehicles are in your impound lot, if they are not the vehicles that you want, then DESTROY THEM, if you do not destroy them they will just come back to the lot...This ensures that there will be a open spot always available to a vehicle that you don't want to lose;

 

3) Do NOT store vehicles that do not spawn on the streets on your safehouse garages, just in case they still vanish(very unlikely, but it's better safe than sorry)...If they do vanish you can always steal another one, take it to LSC to customize however you want and store it again...But with bought cars that costs a lot, like say, the 10 million dollar Z-Type? You're sh*t out of luck AND money.

 

4) if you feel like driving any vehicle stored, drop by the LSCs and change anything on it, this is just to ensure that the car will be impounded in case you step out of it to drive another vehicle.

 

Trust me, if you get out of your car and get on any other vehicle and move the camera away, your previous car is GUARANTEED to despawn.
