How To Repair Car in GTA 5

When you’re going fast in Grand Theft Auto V’s Los Santos, you’re almost certain to crash. It doesn’t matter how bad the damage is—your car can take a lot of damage. Don’t give up, though! Helpful instructions on how to repair cars in GTA 5

How To Repair Car in GTA 5

Head to Los Santos Customs

If your car is damaged in GTA 5, one of the quickest ways to repair it is by taking it to Los Santos Customs. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open your map: Press the pause button, and then select the map option.
  2. Locate Los Santos Customs: On the map, look for the icon that looks like a spray paint can. This is Los Santos Customs.
  3. Drive to Los Santos Customs: Get in your damaged car and follow the GPS to the Los Santos Customs garage.
  4. Enter the garage: Drive into the garage. A menu will pop up.
  5. Select “Repair Vehicle”: In the Los Santos Customs menu, the first option should be “Repair Vehicle.” Choose this option to fix all the damage to your car.

Call Your Mechanic

If your favorite car has taken a hit and you need a quick fix, you can call a mechanic. You can find your mechanic’s number in the game and give him a call to repair your damaged vehicle.

To call your mechanic to repair your car, you need to open your phone and go to your contacts list. The number for the mechanic is 328-555-0153. Make sure you have at least $1,000 in your account; otherwise, the mechanic won’t respond. Once you call the mechanic, they can repair your car or deliver it to you.

Use Your Safehouse Garage

You can use your safehouse garage to repair your car in GTA 5. This is how it works:

  1. Drive your damaged vehicle to your safehouse: Each character in GTA 5 has a personal safehouse, and each safehouse has a garage.
  2. Park the car in the garage: Drive your vehicle into the garage, then exit the vehicle and leave the garage.
  3. Walk away from the garage: Your character needs to be far enough away from the garage for it to “reset.” Walk a short distance away from the garage until it’s out of sight.
  4. Return to the garage: Now, when you walk back to the garage, the car you left should be repaired.

Just note that this method only works with the safehouse garage. It doesn’t work with purchased garages throughout the map. Also, this won’t work if you’re in the middle of a mission.

This is a free method of repairing your car, but it’s not as quick or convenient as using Los Santos Customs.

Switch Characters

Switching characters in GTA 5 is another way to repair a damaged vehicle. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Get out of your damaged vehicle: Exit your vehicle and make sure it’s parked properly. If it’s left in the middle of the road or in some other inappropriate place, it might not be there when you switch back.
  2. Switch characters: Press down on the D-pad (for PS4 and Xbox) or Alt (for PC) to open the character wheel. Choose one of the other two characters who are not currently in use.
  3. Wait a while: Spend some time as this new character. You could complete a mission, explore the city, or simply wait for a few minutes.
  4. Switch back to your original character: Open the character wheel again and switch back to the character who was using the damaged car.

When you switch back, you should find that your previously damaged car is now repaired. This happens because the game refreshes certain elements when you switch characters, including the condition of characters’ personal vehicles.

Please note that this method won’t work with stolen cars or cars you’ve bought in the game—only the default cars that each character owns. Also, if you’re in the middle of a mission, you may not be able to switch characters.

Use a Cheat Code

In Grand Theft Auto V, you can use a cheat code to instantly repair your vehicle. Here’s how to do it:

If you’re playing on Xbox, use the following button combination:

B, LB, Y, RT, A, X, B, Right, X, LB, LB, LB

Please remember that using cheat codes can prevent you from earning achievements and trophies during your current play session. Also, cheats are generally not allowed in GTA Online.

As an alternative, you could also use the “Max Health and Armor” cheat, which will also repair your vehicle. The cheat code for this is 1-999-887-853 (or 1-999-TURTLE). You can enter this code using the in-game cell phone.

Again, please be aware that using cheats can affect your game progress and is not permitted in online mode.
