How to Successfully Complete the “Repossession” Mission in GTA V: A Step-by-Step Guide

The “Repossession” mission in GTA V is the third mission in the game and follows on from the exciting events of “Franklin and Lamar.” In this mission, you’ll play as Franklin again and team up with Lamar to repo a car from a debtor who has fallen behind on payments. While it may seem like a straightforward task, there are plenty of obstacles along the way that you’ll need to navigate in order to successfully complete the mission. In this guide, we’ll take you through every step of the mission, providing tips and tricks to help you avoid any pitfalls.

Mission Overview:

The “Repossession” mission begins with Franklin and Lamar arriving at the home of Simeon Yetarian, the owner of a car dealership. Simeon informs them that a debtor named Jimmy has fallen behind on his car payments and has taken off with the car. Franklin and Lamar agree to repo the car and the mission begins.

Part 1: Locate and Retrieve the Car

The first part of the mission involves tracking down the debtor, Jimmy, who has taken off with the car. You’ll be given a general area to search for the car, so drive around until you spot it. Once you do, get out of your car and approach Jimmy, who will be hanging out nearby. A cutscene will play, and you’ll need to chase after Jimmy on foot. Follow him through the streets until he jumps over a fence and escapes. From there, get back into your car and follow him to a nearby car wash.

Part 2: Retrieve the Car from the Car Wash

Once you arrive at the car wash, you’ll need to retrieve the car from Jimmy. However, he’s locked himself in the car, so you’ll need to break the window to get in. Do this by pressing the appropriate button (default: left mouse button on PC, right trigger on Xbox, R2 on PlayStation). Once you’re inside the car, drive it out of the car wash and onto the street.

Part 3: Escape the Police

As you’re driving the car away, you’ll be pursued by the police. Your objective is to get away from them and return the car to Simeon’s dealership. Follow the on-screen prompts to avoid the police, such as driving into alleyways or changing directions quickly. If the police are too close, you can use Franklin’s special ability to slow down time and make it easier to avoid them. Once you’ve lost the police, return the car to Simeon’s dealership to complete the mission.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Keep an eye on your wanted level: During the mission, you’ll be pursued by the police. Keep an eye on your wanted level and use the environment to your advantage to lose them.
  • Use Franklin’s special ability: During the chase sequence, use Franklin’s special ability to make it easier to catch up to Jimmy on foot.
  • Don’t damage the car: Make sure not to damage the car too much during the chase sequence, as this will make it more difficult to escape the police later on.
  • Avoid other cars: Be careful when driving through the streets, as other cars can get in the way and cause you to crash.
