Car insurance

Question for those that have played the game. Having recently replayed GTA4 I realized just how bad losing cars became. You park a car in front of a safe house to keep it but then you cannot drive it anywhere because most missions make you drive a different car and you lose yours forever. Saints Row did this well with your garage just respawning the vehicles.

I have heard of car insurance in this game, can anyone clarify how it works. Do you have to pay to retrieve a lost car that was abandoned during the course of a mission? Thanks

If you park your car illegally (leave it in a random spot) it will get impounded in a lot. You can go and pay to get it back.

It sticks to the character who had it only.

+ the 3 guys start with a car that Always appears outside their house, even if you leave it in the middle of nowhere, upgrades save on these + pretty sure cars saved in your garage you take out/drive/smash leave and they reappear in the same garage again

Be good if they do reappear with the upgrades, SA was bad there, mod a car, drive out, roll it in 30 secs, gone forever. While it doesnt make sense in the GTA world i like the Saints Row way.

I feel your pain with the mission thing. Anytime I had a nice car and went to start a mission the game would force me to drive some shit SUV. I stopped taking my cars to missions after a while.
