How do personal vehicles work?

#1Ocelot RisingPosted 1/16/2014 3:42:15 PM
I've sort of realised that certain cars will often spawn near to the character when you switch to them or be in their drive at home. Their personal cars?

Are these vehicles persistent? I mean, if I upgrade one of these cars, will it then spawn next to me upgraded?

If that's the case, I'm not sure what garages are for. To change this default car or is it an extra car you can keep around as well? I parked something in a garage once and it got impounded. I didn't get it.

I haven't modded any cars yet because it seems pointless, but if they stick around on these personal cars, it gets more worth it.

Thanks!

Yea the upgrades save. The point of garages is to save other cars obviously.

Characters' default vehicles will always respawn and keep any upgrades, even if they blow up. You can't change a default car, so Trevor, for example, will always have his beat-up pickup truck to rely on, even if the player would rather he use a sports car.

I can't. It's really confusing for me how owning vehicles really work in story mode. They should have made it easier like online.

Default cars don't need to be put in a garage. They always respawn with the character, or near their safehouse. I don't think they're ever impounded.

^ correct. personal, default cars can not be impounded and if you abandon it somewhere, they will always respawn near the character's safehouse.

Garages are meant to allow you to store more cars which is really handy when you come across a unique or rare car and dont want to lose it. Regular cars that you upgrade will be saved with all upgrades if you leave them at a garage Regular cars that are abandoned will be impounded by the po-po.

If you upgrade a car and accidentally abandon it, check the impound lot because it might be there.
