Buying and Selling a Vehicle

Buying A Vehicle

Vehicles are available for purchase at Simeon’s Showroom in Los Santos.  In order for you to legally ‘Own’ vehicles, be able to store items in the trunk and store the vehicle in your garage you must purchase Your vehicles here. There is a wide range of vehicles available from low-end starters ranging from $1100 to $6000 dollars; To exotics, highly customized off-road trucks and classic muscle car that cost as much as $400K. There’s even bicycles for around $250 if money is really tight.

To purchase a vehicle, visit Premium Motorsports (Simeon’s Dealership – It is a car Icon on the map at postal 200).  When you enter the showroom, walk up to any driver side vehicle door to access the showroom menu. You should see a prompt that says “VEHICLE OPTIONS, Interact with the current vehicle”. Press LEFT ALT on your keyboard to get mouse control and click that interaction box. You will then have the following options:

  • Buy Vehicle – you will purchase the vehicle you are standing next to.
  • Finance Vehicle – you will finance the vehicle you are standing next to and pay on it over time.
  • Swap Vehicle – you can change to another vehicle model from other categories to view.
  • Test Drive – you can test drive the currently displayed vehicle.

After making your purchase, you will then be placed outside the dealership in your new vehicle. You may then take the vehicle to Los Santos Customs to re-paint it, and purchase some upgrades. These are very expensive and you may save money by scheduling an appointment with Benny’s, Hayes, or Mosley’s.

In order to store and/or access your owned vehicles, visit either the public garage (or your home garage if you purchased a property), enter the marker, and follow the menu prompts.

**NOTE: Personal vehicles can only be stored and accessed at the public and home garages. Work vehicles provided by your employer may only be accessed and stored at the specific job garage (i.e.- Police garage, Bank Driver garage, etc). Additionally, Stolen vehicles may not be obtained and then stored in any garage. The Police have access to the ‘No-Jack’ Stolen vehicle locator system and in-car cameras that scan RFID chips embedded in license plates – This system will notify a unit of a stolen vehicle upon detection and provide registered owner’s information.

Selling A Vehicle

You can sell any vehicle that you legally own at the used car lot at Larry’s located in Harmony at postal 940. This wholesale buyer will only pay about half what you originally purchased your vehicle for inside Simeon’s Showroom. You can choose to accept the cash sale, or list it for consignment and wait for another player to buy it from there.

You can also transfer ownership of a vehicle you own to another player, manually, after roleplaying out any price negotiations and payment. Use the /transfervehicle chat command to do this. You will need to press HOME on the keyboard to see the ID number above the head of the player you are transferring ownership to.
