You Got The Message

Deliver all 30 cars ordered through text message.  

After completing the missions "No. 1" and "Smackdown.," you will receive a text message from Stevie asking you to get a car for him. Once you find and enter the car, you will see a message on the screen that lets you know you have successfully found the car that he was looking for. On your map you will see an icon listed only as "Garage." This is where you will bring the cars back to.

The order of the cars is completely random, but you will always get the same 30 cars. After you deliver a car, Stevie will wait 6 in-game hours before sending you a message for the next car. So if you are looking to do this quickly, going to a safe house and saving your game advances the game ahead 6 hours, so if you drop off a car, then go immediately to a safe house, when you wake up the next text will be waiting for you.

There are only 30 cars, after you complete all of them, youll get this achievment and you unlock the ability to get money for ANY car you bring to the garage. Turismo is worth the most, so use a cheat to spawn one outside the garage, and sell it. You can repeat this as many times as you want and is also an easy way to get the $500000 balance achievement.

My first play through I'm pretty sure this glitched. I didn't delete his message
but it wasn't anywhere on the list, and after trying to deliver every car none
of them worked. I had to redo the whole 100%, and after already doing everything
except for the pigeons.

Do not put your phone into sleep mode... there is a known glitch where you won't get the first text from Stevie, therefore never being able to collect the 30 cars for him and get 100%. It happened to me.

Confirmed Aneurysm's (#9 post)

I had my phone in sleep mode while I was shooting some pigeons, Stevies first text has not come through & no matter what I try I cannot get it to come through so it looks like I have to go through it all again for that one achievment. Thank you very much Rockstar

Completed game, no cheats, never put phone on sleep mode, no text deletes. I have nothing by Stevie and thus cannot attain 100% :(

Two things.

1. Best resource for this achievement.

2. I noticed that there's no way for me to delete the message from Steve, but mine did disappear during game play. However if the garage icon is still on your map, then he's still looking for a car. I went car by car through the map, and found one that was there. After that I got txt messages again. Did 13 cars during the story, and am finishing up after the game complete.

If u did not know, the cheat for health armor and weapon batch 1 ALSO fixes ur car up to 100%, So no matter how much u crash ur car, if u use it b4 u park in in the garage, ill get it in perfect condition. You'll get about 450k collecting all cars.

Some of the pictures stevie gives you can be misleading, and the one on this guide is very general to no help. The bet way to find it is to use the street names and areas they are located in, or the subway stations they are near.

Some are harder to find then others, the hardest, personally for me to find were the rancher and the intruder

I enjoyed this acheivement. I also like that you have the option afterwards of taking any vehicle to that garage to make some coin. Not that I have needed it yet
