The lights are on
Hey guys, I like so many of you have gotten GTA V this week. I haven't really had much time to really get into it yet. But I have been screwing around and have gotten as far as acquiring Micheal.
Could anybody give me some more info on acquiring vehicles and storing them. I haven't bought any vehicles yet and while doing something else a message appeared stating that my vehicle was impounded. Yet when I went back to Franklins house a bit later my car was sitting in the driveway.
So can you acquire a stolen vehicle and store it for later, or can you only store vehicles that you have purchased? Why does my car need washed or fixed? Every time I do something and leave the car for a while, when I go to retrieve it all seems fixed.
Or is it that I am just not far enough in the game or haven't done something yet to be able to use these functions?
Sorry if I don't respond, I am at work and may not be able to check in until later.
the way the garage system works, is when you have a garage, you also have a mechanic that goes with it, he takes a daily wage of about 200 dollars in the multiplayer, but i think hes free in the single player. (not 100% on that)
when you steal a car, you need to take it to your garage, and then it becomes yours. if its impounded, you need to go to the blue car icon on the map before the cops destroy it. this can happen when you play as any character, another character might get his car impounded, so you need to switch to them and go save it
the cars do get dirty and broken so take it to a car wash or mechanic in game, again you can also bring it to your garage, leave for awhile, and then come back to a brand new car.
its a little different in the multiplayer, but the single player they made it really easy, steal a car, bring it home, everyone forgets about it, now its yours yay ;)
also as a side note, your car can be impounded at any time its not in your garage, and it will be if youre killed or caught by the cops, excluded if they blow it up to kill you of course
Here is something that should help you online.
