GTA V players urged not to store vehicles inside garages at this time

Many gamers may have experienced issues with storing cars inside garages within Grand Theft Auto V that results in the loss of the stored vehicle. Rockstar support released a comment about the problem on Monday in which the developer recommended fans avoid using the garages inside the open-world game until a fix can be deployed.

The known bug that has a tendency to delete saved vehicles from garages seems to be triggered by several different things. Rockstar Games’ support stated that these include completing a mission or driving a character’s personal vehicle while controlling one of the game’s other two protagonists.

Which garages? The ones outside your homes, or the ones you can purchase?

I know one of my cars was deleted at Micheal's home garage for me. :\

Can't care too much though, the game is too fun for me to be mad lol.

i didn't encounter any of those glitches so far on ps3
i'm only 5 hours in though who knows

don't like the combat at all though
and when i drive any car it feel like i'm driving it on ice or something
but the gunplay is good though very similar to RDR gunplay

snipab8t1702d ago

No glitch on my end on 360 either.

Hellsvacancy1702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

My car disappeared, it's wasn't in my garage and it wasn't impounded by the police either, just gone

Didn't bother me much, I just stole another one lol

I agree about the driving, most of the cars feel like balloons, as light as a feather

elhebbo161702d ago

I dunno what you are talking about, the cars are more grounded and easier to control than in GTA4.

Spinal1702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

Yeah this has happened to me once, but also happened when Franklin got a new house an the car i had stored in the old garage was gone :(

Playing on 360. But yeah also agree the driving in this GTA is soooo much better than that floaty driving in GTA 4. I couldnt drive anythin in GTA 4 it was terrible. The shooting/cover system blows GTA 4 out the water.

Just imagine when GTA online kicks off! i booked off days from work to get better acquainted with it :)

buynit1702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

On Ice? Sure you not playing Gta4? Driving skills get better as you play just like stamina aiming and all the other stats..

On topic

I spent over 50k on a car and only drove it for like five min.. Up looks like i got robbed in my garage too, Gta4 online must have started Early! Lol

Coach_McGuirk1702d ago

I agree about the driving, Ezz. GTA4 felt more realistic, like the cars had actual weight.

guitarded771702d ago

I had cars disappear at both Michael's and Franklin's (Aunt's house) garages. I was wondering WTF was going on.

Raf1k11702d ago

GTA4 did have more realistic driving but the cars were too easy to tip over when hitting a curb. Ultimately driving became too much of a chore in that game and I remember a lot of people not liking it.

GTA5 now as improved driving for an open world game as it bring the fun back into it.

MysticStrummer1702d ago

I haven't had any cars vanish on me yet, but I probably just jinxed myself. Doh! I have seen other glitches, but not enough to really complain about.

I wouldn't say the cars feel like they're on ice, but they don't feel quite right. The only ones that feel like they have weight are the big trucks, like garbage trucks or larger.

The whole game seems to have gotten a lot easier, including the driving. I'm only at about 30% completion, and I never played the PSP versions, but so far this is the easiest GTA I've ever played.

I love the game, but once again too many 10s are being thrown around. I guess maybe people feel obligated to make sure GTA5's Metacritic ends up higher than GTA4's.

Dee_911702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

They only disappear in Micheal home garage for me sometimes.Trevor and Franklin garages seems to work.I did have another glitch though, where the health would always blink red even when it was full, but a simple restart fixed that.

Ezz20131702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

i played GTA4 for short time got bored with it very fast and sold it
but i'm enjoing GTA5 alot more than gta4

maybe "on ice" is the wrong way to say it
it just the cars feel very light
don't get the feel of cars weight at all

cybervike1701d ago

The driving in GTA 4 was awful. They seemed to have addressed it in GTA V. I have no complaints.

Outside_ofthe_Box1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

Driving in GTA4 was much more realistic than it is in GTA5. People were just upset that you couldn't turn corners on dime while going 100 miles per hour in GTA4. Only issues I had with Gta4's driving was with bikes.

Driving in GT5 feels super duper arcadey. The cars feel like they don't have the weight on them that they should have and the roads feel slippery smooth.

Only when driving with trucks, bicycles, motorcycles, and damaged cars do I feel like I get the appropriate feeling. I can't blame Rockstar though as they are only responding to the complaints many had with driving in their previous game.

alien6261701d ago

i did encounter this once on ps3 and xbox but that was in the start of the game

Lord_Sloth1701d ago

My only real issue with the game is an I die after the enemy sneezes in my general direction. That being said, I can adapt to it, just have to be more cautious.

ShinMaster1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

It sucks when there are cars I spent money fully customizing, only to be forever lost in the game, even if I bring it back to a garage.
If you die or it gets destroyed or you use it to get to a mission and have to leave it, you won't get it back.
One time I backed into the garage at Franklin's place and the game didn't save it.

I haven't purchased any vehicles yet out of fear of wasting my money.

I just spent loads of cash modding my car and then it disappeared from the garage in my home. AARGH!!

Monolith1702d ago

Same. Completely modded this sexy banshee and stored at Micheals garage. Come back later, it was gone. I thought maybe some one stole it like his son Jimmy or something. LOL oh well.

Boody-Bandit1702d ago (Edited 1702d ago )

Go to the impound. There is a good chance it's there. You have to pay a fee though. I think it's $250. It's worth it to get them back. I had 3 disappear on me and found them there. My only problem is every time I go to the impound I pick a fight with the police. I know it but I can't help myself. I love trying to out run them.

Septic1702d ago

Ah cheers Brutallyhonest, I'll do that!

violents1702d ago

I had the same happen to me, I spent a boatload of cash on a car and when I started a mission it showed.being parked outside mocheals house, becausr it made me take his cat and when I got back it was gone, no imppund, just gone.

Darth Gamer1702d ago

how do you store more than one vehicle in your home garage. Every time i go to put another car in my one car garage, the first car that i brought back to it is always in there and I ccan't fit another in. Iv'e been parking them outside in my driveway. lol

slazer1011702d ago

I lost a car I fully upgraded. It was parked in the garage of the house that is given to Franklin.

llMurcielagoll1702d ago

It happened to me too, I had a "Grotti" in Frank's garage then replaced it with a Commet in which I went and customized it. Next time I played it was like I never got that commet and my previous car was in the garage -_-

I suppose I am going to wait for a hot fix before I go crazy and buy me a Cheetah and lose it.

Dirkster_Dude1702d ago

I encountered losing vehicles that I had stolen, purchased, and the personal vehicles such as Trevor's truck or the cars for Michael and Franklin. Now that I think on it the personal vehicles came back at certain points, but I never recovered the other vehicles stored in the personal or purchased garages.

konrad1701d ago

It's Grand Theft Auto V so you shouldn't be surprised when you lose a car :)

3-4-51701d ago

DON'T store them in home garages.

DO store them in garages you bought.

stone_cold1701d ago


xActionBasturdx1701d ago

This happened to me but only after i finished the last mission. But it doesnt matter, smart people like would create multiple game saves, even though that wasnt the purpose for me doing it was good to have

SilentNegotiator1701d ago (Edited 1701d ago )

Well at least cars aren't important in Grand Theft Auto. No big deal, Rockstar.


delicia1701d ago

50 hours in (just started another new game), Digital PS3 version, I think only once, a car inside Franklin's garage disappeared, but other than that, checking the cars every hour, no problem.

Chris_GTR11701d ago

yea ive had this happen many times now :( really annoying.

ShiranaiJittai1701d ago

You are supposed to lose Michael's car it is story related.

sounds pretty serious.

Outside_ofthe_Box1702d ago

***"driving a character’s personal vehicle while controlling one of the game’s other two protagonists."***

This is definitely one of the triggers, although I didn't realize it at the time until now. Franklin is the only one so far where I lost a vehicle (car & bicycle) that I stored in the garage outside his home. I drove Micheal's vehicle while playing as him.

ALARM-clock1702d ago

I've lost countless millions on the cars I stored in my garage.

One less than perfect work around is to just trick out the cars that are part of the story, since no matter what you can't lose them. Franklin has one muscle car, one bike. Michael has one sports car, one convertible. And Trevor just has his truck---which, believe it or not, is actually a beast when it's fully customized.

TIER1xWOLFPACKx1702d ago

Trevor also has a beast of a quad, it has flames on it and doesn't look like a normal quad Ron gives it to you

FragMnTagM1702d ago

I am pretty sure that "quad" is a lawn mower. It is, however, bad ass.

franko1702d ago

All my cars are fine. Ps3.
