The latest ‘GTA Online’ title update removes the option to own certain vehicles

In a move that should be familiar to Grand Theft Auto V fans by now, this week’s new title update for GTA Online included a few controversial changes that Rockstar Games failed to mention in the title’s official patch notes. In a post from the Rockstar Support website on Dec 10, the developer clarified that 1.07 removed the option for players to own certain types of vehicles. These changes directly affect the ability to keep Rat Loader, the non-rusty Karin Rebel, and select Tornado models in player-owned garages.

To make matters worse, these vehicles were all previously customizable in-game. This meant that users could have spent large sums of money fully upgrading vehicles that were deleted from their garage with the latest patch. Rockstar Games reasoning is that the Rat Loader is classified as a utility vehicle much in the same way as the Tow Truck. However, the hot rod truck is actually classified both in-game and on the Rockstar social site as a muscle vehicle which leaves many wondering exactly why their previously legitimately owned cars have now been deleted without any warning or compensation.

Grand Theft Auto V is out now on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
