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.

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
