Grand Theft Auto Online players can use a handy trick to save their cars from being impounded by police or destroyed by trolls while they’re out and about in Los Santos.

As anyone who has dropped into GTA Online at least once will know, your personal vehicles are your pride and joy. Some players have built up huge collections with some of the rarest and most expensive cars in-game taking pride of place.


But what happens when you take them out on the road? You become a target for trolls. Either someone will chase you down on an MKII Oppressor or if you park up for a few seconds, you’ll have explosives hanging off your window.

However, with the recent Los Santos Summer Special update, Rockstar have added new measures that were previously only available to owners of the Mobile Operations Center.

How to save personal vehicles in GTA Online from being lost or destroyed

That’s right, if you’re worried about your car being destroyed by trolls or picked up and impounded by the Los Santos Police Department, you can simply use your interaction menu to save yourself a headache.

If you head there and then scroll down to vehicles, every player will now have the option to return their personal vehicle to storage. 

It doesn’t matter how far away you are from your car or if someone has picked it up for joy ride, as long as it isn’t completely destroyed or impounded, you can use the quick option to save yourself a headache.

  1. Open up the interactions menu – hold the back button on Xbox and PS5
  2. Scroll down to vehicles
  3. Click ‘Return personal vehicle to storage’
  4. Wait a few seconds and your car will head to the safety of your garage

On top of that, you can also set preferences on the personal vehicles that you’d like to call out from your garage. This is handy given that you can save some time instead of calling the mechanic or Merryweather. 

So, the next time you’re out and about in Los Santos and worried about getting your vehicle home safe, remember to sue the interactions menu to send it back in a flash.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
