To fix a car in GTA IV:
  • In single-player mode, just find a Pay ‘n’ Spray on the map (represented by a green spray can icon), take your car there, and it will be spiffed up until it’s good as new.
  • In multiplayer mode, you can tap on a health pack and your car will heal itself.
Note that if your car is severely damaged in GTA IV, Pay ‘n’ Spray might only be able to fix it up to a point. (They aren’t miracle workers, after all.) If that’s the case, they’ll tell you, That’s the best I can do with this wreck.
You can always take your car to your safe house—because who doesn’t have one of those?—and park it, then save the game. Once you reload it, your car will be magically fixed.
