A glitch in the new GTA V causes players cars to vanish.

Let's face it, the Grand Theft Auto series has always been about ONE thing --- Stealing cars. I mean, that's what grand theft auto is, isn't it? You're given the freedom to take any whip in the city whether it's parked or being driven. Of course, there's so much more to explore in the world of GTA, especially in the newest installation of the series, but there may be somewhere you'd want to stay away from... for now, at least. The garages. Yes, we know, why would you want to stay away from a garage? After all, that's where you save your stolen cars. Well, in fact, the opposite may be true. Parking your cars in one of the many garages around the city of Los Santos may be the worst thing you can do if you look forward to keeping them. The game might just steal it from you.

A bug was recently detected in GTA V that is causing cars and car upgrades to disappear when players park vehicles in the game's various garages, which are supposed to be save points. As a result, Rockstar is warning fans not to use those garages until they can solve the issue.

"We have received some reports about problems with cars and garages, particularly after upgrading and then completing a mission, and are looking into this now. Unfortunately, we do not currently have a workaround to recover a car if it is missing," the developer said on its support page. "Please try to avoid parking a car in a garage, driving one already in a garage, or getting in a default vehicle, when playing as a character other than the one with your upgrades."
No one's quite sure what triggers the bug. In the meantime, the company is advising players to sign up for the Rockstar Social Club, which has a separate garage they can store cars in while doing missions. This does not seem to be affected at present.
Our best suggestion? Refrain from souping up your recently heisted vehicles until this problem is solved. Yeah, it's a pain in the ass, but we'd hate for you to waste your hard earned (robbed) money on something you can lose so easily. So we'd advise investing in some real estate. Safe houses still seem like the safest option.

Good luck and steal responsibly.
