Rockstar PSA: Customized cars known to disappear, fix in the works
Rockstar advises Grand Theft Auto 5 players to steer clear of garages for the time being while the developer looks into a fix for vanishing vehicles and upgrades, according to a post on the Rockstar support website.
The post states that the issues have been cropping up after customizing a vehicle and then completing a mission, most often "if you drive another characters personal vehicle." Players have been reporting losing vehicles and customizations after storing them in garages.
Rockstar suggests the problem is linked with driving vehicles with characters that do not own the upgrades. The company has asked players to avoid parking their cars in garages, driving cars that are already parked in garages or getting into a default vehicle with a character other than the one with upgrades.
The company is "looking into a fix to prevent this from occurring in the future."
Grand Theft Auto 5 launched last Tuesday and hit $1 billion in sales after just three days.
