It's natural to wonder how to steal cars in Cyberpunk 2077 and save them to your garage. There's a lot of cool cars and in almost every other open world games you can keep the vehicles you take. Cyberpunk 2077 is different though. You can keep a car for as long as you stay near it but if you abandon the vehicle or go too far away, it'll despawn. If you do find a CYberpunk 2077 car you like it's a temporary affair - you certainly won't be able to keep a ride you like across several missions. So what's the deal? Can you actually steal cars in Cyberpunk 2077?

Unfortunately, there's a very short and easy answer to this question: you cannot keep the cars you steal off the street in Cyberpunk 2077. So even if you see a lush sports car that does the vroom vrooms well and goes a million miles an hour driving down the street, you can take it and drive it for the time being, but you won't be able to call it when requesting your vehicle remotely.

The main way to get new cars and vehicles to add to your garage is to buy them from the various fixers you have contact with. When they contact you with news of a new vehicle up for sale, you just have to visit that location on the map and fork over the eddies required to nab yourself a new ride.

There are also some vehicles you can get by completing missions, so if you don't want to spend your hard-earned cash on a car, complete some more side missions. There are a few very nice cars you can earn, just for playing the game. Cars in Cyberpunk 2077 don't have massively different stats though, so most vehicles will do the job.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
