The exciting world of the Grand Theft Auto games gets a fresh spin with Grand Theft Auto V Online. In this program from Rockstar Games, players follow the storylines of three criminal characters: Michael, Trevor, and Franklin through the familiar San Andreas map. You will have to make in-game money to buy weapons and rise in the ranks of top criminal empires. In your missions, you risk getting caught by the police or killed by other criminals; however, with enough cash, you can afford yachts and luxury penthouses.

The easiest way to make money in GTA V is to steal cars and sell them to a mechanic at a lesser value. All you need is to use the GPS system to find the shop and trade in your cars. Selling your stolen cars is more beneficial than keeping them when you’re playing the game for money-making techniques. We’ll go through the three steps to sell cars in GTA V Online.

  1. Look for a paint shop with spray paint icons on the map

    Avoid getting caught by the police

    Start by traveling around the city to find an easy car to steal. If you’re familiar with the game, you can grab a car at a red light or stop sign or break into it when it’s parked. Keep an eye out for police officers and speed away if you do get caught before they pull you over and end the game. A practical tip is to choose cheaper cars over sports cars as you won’t get too much money from the mechanics and can steal more cars to sell once you get the hang of the controls.

    Next, you’ll need to look for spray paint icons on your mini-map to find a mechanic. Click the icon to set the GPS and drive to the mechanic. Depending on your location, this shop is either Los Santos Customs or another shop in the Harmony area. Follow the road and try to avoid suspicion. If you have one warning star count, you can try to ditch the car and attempt another heist when your rating is cleared.

  2. Drive to the mechanic’s shop to be let in

    Choose to upgrade or sell your car at the mechanic's shop

    Once you arrive at the paint shop, the mechanic will let you in as long as you don’t have any warning stars from being followed by the police. There will be a prompt to fix the car or sell it upon pulling in. If you choose to fix the car, you can also upgrade it with options such as explosives and new paint.

    Unless you want more modified cars for your luxury lifestyle, you will want to sell it instead. Use the directional arrows to select the sell button where the mechanic will offer you a discounted price. Cheaper cars are usually $1,000 to $2,000 while sports cars can be around $9,000.

  3. Confirm the sale and collect your money

    Sports cars will net the most profit

    The prompt for car sales in GTA V Online is the standard “are you sure?” message. Confirm the sale price to have your earnings automatically added to your funds. You will want to bank your money in case it’s lost or stolen. Use your cellphone to find the Internet icon and click on “Money and Services.” Through there, you can find the Maze Bank app to deposit the cash from selling your car.

Make your way to the top-selling cars in GTA V Online

Stealing and selling cars in Grand Theft Auto V Online is a quick way to make cash and live a life of luxury. By not getting caught by the cops and making your way to the paint shop, you can switch out your stolen cars for money to rise up in San Andreas. It’s necessary to turn in your cars and invest your money to get further in the game.

It’s important to know that you can only sell cars in the online version of Grand Theft Auto 5 and not in the casual single-player edition.
