GTA Online turbo glitch is completely ruining car mods

Vehicle customization is everything for some Grand Theft Auto V players, with all sorts of bits and pieces available at Los Santos Customs, but don’t think you’re going crazy if your turbo upgrade randomly disappears. 

Turbo upgrades in GTA Online can be the difference between coming short in a race and being crowned the winner, taking home a big cash prize, although some players have reported issues with the feature in-game.


These can usually be bought from levels one to four, increasing the acceleration of the car with each upped level.

However, a strange glitch appears to removing those that have been purchased.

There are loads of custom parts and upgrades available at Los Santos Customs – but some aren’t working with a new bug.

On July 19, one Reddit user by the name of Elliot_J99- flagged it as an issue, and other members of the community appear to have discovered the same fate.

They posted: “Has anybody noticed the Turbo upgrade is disappearing off upgraded cars? I noticed my Issi Classic didn’t have it, then my Blista Kanjo, and now my Elegy RH8 has lost it too, so I think it’s safe to assume most, if not all of my vehicles have also lost the upgrade, no way this is a coincidence.”

The user has since submitted a ticket to Rockstar Games about the problem, hoping that it will be resolved in the not too distant future.


The longer that the issue persists in GTA Online, the more money players will spend on upgrades that they don’t have the chance to enjoy when driving their cars. Good news for players, though, is that these upgrades aren’t really too expensive and the game’s devs are handing out thousands each week in free Twitch Prime rewards. 

Nevertheless, hopefully, this bug will be ironed out with a hotfix shortly.

YouTuber and presenter Supercar Blondie is one of the best-known car YouTubers out there. Now, she has smashed all previous records and broken an important Facebook milestone.

With a cool 4.65 million subscribers on her YouTube channel alone, Supercar Blondie has made a name for herself as one of YouTube’s best automotive content creators.


Earlier in 2020, SB made headlines after amassing an incredible number of Facebook views, reaching over one billion views in the month of August alone.

Now, it seems that the ‘Supercar Blondie Family’ is only set to grow even bigger, after an incredible announcement via her YouTube channel and Instagram feeds.

Supercar Blondie hits 30 million Facebook followers

In spite of her massive following on YouTube, her biggest audience is actually on Facebook.

With her incredible viewing figures for August 2020 still at the forefront of her mind, Blondie has revealed another exciting piece of news in the development of her brand. As of October 6, 2020, she now has over 30 million followers on her Facebook page.

“Wow wow wow! If you follow me on Facebook as well, thank you! The Supercar Blondie family just grew to 30 million! Insta fam next. Much love guys; Come join us and see why we get a billion views a month!”


Clearly not content with hitting a cool 30 million Facebook followers, she states that it’s the “Insta fam next.”

Blondie still has a long way to go on her Instagram page, however, as it currently sits at around seven million followers. Impressive, but that’s a whopping 23 million behind her Facebook page, so it might take a while to catch up.

With her recent successes — including being crowned the richest car influencer on YouTube — it’s been one heck of a year for Supercar Blondie. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for the remaining months of 2020.
