The Impound Lot in Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) is a location within the game that offers players the ability to store and retrieve their vehicles.
It is located near the intersection of Roy Lowenstein and Innocence boulevards in south Los Santos, next to the Davis Police Department.
This article explores the location of the Impound Lot, the situations in which a vehicle may be impounded, and how to locate the Impound Lot within the game.
It also examines the various options available to players for retrieving impounded vehicles, including the cost implications of these options.
Players have the option to pay the impound lot fee or steal the vehicle back as methods of vehicle retrieval. Paying $250 to the Impound Lot quickly retrieves the vehicle, while stealing it gives players a two-star wanted level. Evading the LSPD and reducing the wanted level allows players to retrieve the stolen vehicle.
Auto insurance allows wrecked vehicles to be returned to the garage. Without insurance, a wrecked vehicle is permanently lost. The Impound Lot will destroy the vehicle if it is not recovered in time.
These methods of vehicle retrieval can be used to reclaim automobiles impounded by the LSPD.
Vehicles may be confiscated by the LSPD in certain circumstances. These situations may include players being arrested and having their vehicle impounded during narrative missions, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. | Situation | Impound Action | |—————————|——————| | Player Arrested | Vehicle Impounded | | Wrong Place/Time | Vehicle Impounded | | No Insurance | Vehicle Permanently Lost |
The impound lot fee is $250, which can be paid to quickly retrieve the vehicle. Alternatively, players can attempt to steal the vehicle back, but this will give them a two-star wanted level. Evading the police and reducing the wanted level will allow the vehicle to be retrieved. Auto insurance can also be used to replace a wrecked vehicle. If the vehicle is not retrieved in time, the Impound Lot will destroy it.
Finding the Impound Lot can be made easier if the player’s car has been impounded, as the car symbol on the map can be used to locate it. Other means must be used if another car is impounded. Here are some tips that can help:
