Stuff dissapears wayy too fast

Hey guys, I noticed in my game things disappear too fast. For example, I am driving quickly, rear end someone, and they die. I get out of my car to check if they are dead, call an ambulance, go back to my car, reverse it off the street, and all of a sudden the guy I rearended was gone. Car and everything. This happens everytime. And one time, I was driving a banshee, and I go to my safehouse, and I park it next to the yellow space, I get out, go to one of the crap cars I had in my lot, reversed it and parked it on the street right next to mine, and I walk back, and the banshee is gone. Either someone jacked it, or it disappeared. I figure it disappeared since its happened a million times already. Wasn't this supposed to be better in IV? Weren't things supposed to like not disappear as much?

Sorry man. I haven't really noticed this. I even remembering thinking to myself the other day how long things stay. I will park a car. Run full 2 to 4 blocks away. Go back and it is parked on the street. I know it is mine cause it is still damaged and I don't need to break in. I was also really impressed with how if I see a car I want, drive by that I can turn and keep trying to catch up to it. You can even follow up for a couple of blocks. This was unachievable in the III, VC, SA.

I'm noticing this a lot too, but it's a new thing. My game didn't do it before, like DMannDD said, I could run 4 blocks, come back and get back in my car. Now it seems if I run a hundred yards in the other direction, my car will vanish. :/

What system are you guys on? It could be a cache issue later on in the game. Just like I have heard some say that pop-in gets worse the further you get into the story. I am about 40% complete and they are not vanishing.

SaucyViper87 is an unknown quantity at this point
I'm around 65% in, and I used to be able to stack 10 cars up at a gas station for a nice explosion. Now, if I manage to get even 4 cars there, I'll turn around to get another one and they'll all be gone.

I haven't checked my % recently but I've unlocked Alderney. I'm using PS3.

I'm getting it a lot too. Never happened in the beginning of the game, but now I can park up a car, get killed and return to it from the hospital and it'll be gone. When I first had the game, this wasn't an issue. We really need a patch to fix some of these bugs.

My problem and thoughts exactly.
Also hopefully a patch for Some of the choking issues , It's not really a big deal though it happens pretty rare.

Oh great, I've been waiting for someone to post this. Every time I park my car in the parking space, it DISAPPEARS after saving and loading. I'm 100% sure I park it right in the space and I come back and its gone. Possible glitch? I'm playing on the Xbox 360, hopefully theres some way to fix it if it is a glitch.

Yeah, this sounds like a glitch.

What everyone is saying about this not happening at the beginning of the game is true. When I get home today, ill check it out. Ill start a new game and see if the problem is the same. Maybe on the PS3 deleting the game install will help?
