Warning! When getting your impounded car...

Recommended Posts

Vicc

When the police impounds your car, do NOT call your mechanic for one of your rides, and then drive it to the impounded car. The impounded car will disappear. Just happened to my Zion. Feels bad man

Only if it's destroyed from the impound...or another one of your cars gets impounded. You can only have 1 car impounded at once, so if you get a 2nd one impounded, the 1st one will be destroyed and you'll have to call your insurance.

Do a mission while it's impounded and it will spawn with you. When you finish the mission it wil be unimpounded.

In the case of this happening, call your insurance representative. They've destroyed the car, and you must pay the insurance claim.

On a tangent when you have the mechanic to deliver one of your rides, does he ever turn hostile to you? He's done it to me a few times.

Yeah all the time. He'll get out the car, get back in and get out again to try and attack me.

I can't work out why? I see one time he took a snap of the car on his phone it was weird.

 

But it's almost everytime he gets hostile now.

 

He arrives, gets out, I wait for a moment before getting in... Then he starts cursing at me and goes into a fight stance, very odd!

One time when I got a car impounded, died, and entered a new session. I go to the impound to find my car gone, I look at the radar to see my car icon in the impound, so I just press TRIANGLE near my icon. Then I magically enter an invisible ca, so I just ride around bumping other cars just for fun.

I haven't tried it again...soon...

I just kill him because he takes forever just to drive to my location or doesn't even drive their.

This has never happened to me, is it possible you didn't have the $50 available to auto-pay him at some point?

The mechanic is a useless prick.

 

 

So far he has delivered the wrong car on more than one occassion, dropped the car off and while I'm walking to it sit back in and drive away, get out and start fighting me, drop the car off then start kicking it and finally say he's coming then call 30 seconds later telling me he cant make it.

 

So now everytime he comes I just baseball bat him.

That doesn't happen. I always have to get it out in the mission when I start one and it's impounded.

 

It's a lot easier in a mission although with dropping wanted level via Lester is unlocked, it's not much of an issue either way.
