Location on the map.

Car Salesman is an odd job in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. The location of this mission is Capital Autos in Saint Mark's. It is unlocked after the player completes the mission Dealing Revenge for Vincenzo Cilli. The mission can only be accessed between 8:00 and 18:00 but if you start before the dealership closes it will resume after closing time. There are 6 levels to complete, and every 2 levels you complete, a car is delivered to the shop so you can drive it. Before you start, a Kuruma will be parked on the platform. Then after you complete level 2 a Sentinel will be in the Kuruma's place on the platform. After completing level 4 the Hellenbach GT will be in the Sentinel's place on the platform. Once you have successfully completed a level, you may cancel the mission and continue the level in which you were in (as long as you remember to save). When the player completes level 6, Capital Autos will start to pay up to $4,000 in protection money. This side mission is required for 100% completion of the game .


In each level there are four customers who want to go on a test drive. Each one has a different thing they are looking for in a car. To start the test drive get in a car and find out what they want. To make a complete sale you will have to satisfy their wants. For each car you sell you will get money and a time extension. And for every level completed you will get a little over $1000.

Two Door Coupe

The one on the far left wants a car that can run over multiple people and evade the police. The cars for this one are an Esperanto, a Stallion, or an Idaho. To make this one easy to do run over at least eight people then collect a police bribe then run over some more until the customer is satisfied. Running over the people will raise the sales bar and it will also go up even more for losing police attention. You could also do a Drive-By Shooting on pedestrians and vehicles to increase the sale bar. The bar with this car does not decrease.

Alternatively, it is possible to satisfy the customer by simply driving fast (however, it does not always work) but this is harder than in the Sports Car scenario. Drive to the long straight road at the east of the Portland Island, then drive fast down & up the road until the customer is satisfied.

Sports Car

The customer next to the far left wants a fast car. The cars for this one are a Stinger, a Banshee, and a Cheetah. To do this just drive at top speed up and down the hills in Saint Mark's. Or take it to the waterfront north of the shop and drive where there's a straight road and no traffic (preferably before unlocking Staunton Island). If you damage the car you will have to go to the Pay 'n' Spray and repair it. Also, sometimes the customer will request to change the color. The bar with this one will decrease if you drive too slow, or if you crash into other objects.

Slow Car

The customer next to the far right wants a slow car. The cars for this one are a Perennial, and a Manana. For this just barely tap the accelerate button on the controller to make it go slower. Driving around the AMCo. gas station will work. Just like with the sports car, the customer wants the car in mint condition. The bar with this one will decease if you drive too fast, not drive at all, or if you crash into other objects.

Off-Road Vehicle

The customer on the far right wants a vehicle that can perform well off-road. The cars for this one are a BF Injection, a Bobcat, and a Patriot. This one is pretty easy as the sales bar doesn't go down as fast as the others. To do this one just get in the car and go down to the Harwood Autocrusher and Junkyard and drive around there. Also doing barrel rolls and driving up ramps will make the bar fill up faster, but beware not to flip the car and fail the mission. It does not have to be in perfect condition but occasionally the customer might request a the color changed. The bar for this one will decrease only if you don't drive, even while you are off-road.
Tip: Its sales bar can also be increased by doing radical flip if you activated the Perfect Traction cheat.

Failing The Mission

maybe this section is unnecessary because it's in the infobox

There are seven ways you can fail this mission. You could leave the car lot, you could kill the customer, you could let the sales bar reach zero, you could let the time drop to zero, you could destroy the vehicle that you are driving, having Toni die, get busted or get out of the car you are trying to sell.


  • In the PSP version of the game, If the player continues the mission after level 6 and reaches level 9, a snowy weather effect starts to appear and continues appearing in further levels. This is possibly there to make driving more difficult. The snow disappears if the player fails or cancels the mission, and Car Salesman cannot be played again afterwards, so you can only see this once. This weather effect does not appear in the PS2 or mobile versions of the game.
