hello guys! i will give you a tip, if you are unable to find a car anywhere in the car spawns, check the edges of the map! in the server i am playing i spent some hours trying to find a car and it wasnt able to find any!
yesterday i went all the east and north edges of the map and i was able to find 3 cars, one police car, one truck and one jeep. my looting runs will be a lot easier
as i am playing solo on this server i still have to be very careful when looting places, best to hide the car in a good spot most of the time instead of leaving the car in the open while looting. if youre really meticulous you can always place a stash nearby with the battery and sparkplugs in case you get killed and dont want to give your enemy a chance to go and find your car (for seeing the sparkplugs or battery in your inventory). cheers
