GTA 5 PC - Slow driving/car stuck on 3rd gear

Hi,

I play GTA 5 on PC and I have a bug or something where when I'm driving a car it will go much slower than normal. I have went on an airport runway with a Zentorno and held down the gas button and it sounds like it goes up to the 3rd gear or so and then doesn't go any higher, the Zentorno is supposed to have 6 gears. I heard that was a bug in the xbox/ps3 versions of GTA and couldn't find a solution that relates to pc.
I have also tested with a friend in a race to go down a long track with the same Zentorno car (no custom cars) and my friend practically flew by me within a few seconds.

 

Has anybody else have/had this issue? If so is there a solution?

That was stupid of me, I missed where you said that, sorry :p

 

Are you using a controller or keyboard?

Started off using a controller, then I realized the driving was very slow compared to other players and thought that may be the problem. So I switched to keyboard and still had the same issue. Now I'm back to using a controller

Hm, was this in one session or does it persist after restarting your PC?

Yea it keeps happening even when I restart my PC.

Hm, never heard of this happening before...do you have any mods installed, or have you installed any mods previously?

Nope, never used any mods. Decided to uninstall it and reinstalling it now, hopefully that fixes it.

I`ve only heard of this being a bug on consoles when the game was released, but it was fixed shortly after. There are a few other people that I have met online that have a similar issue and they weren`t sure either of why it was happening.

Yeah, apart from that patched bug, the issue is either fixed by restarting, or it's a problem with using a controller where the controller's defective. Hopefully reinstalling does fix it!

Reinstalling didn't fix it :/ Oh well, its not that big of a deal I guess, except when doing heists that are timed haha.
