    You can access the Vehicle Thefts list from your Saints Book in your cellphone, there are 30 of them in total, most will show up when you progress on the thefts but to unlock them all you need to play through the story far enough, which is after the mission "Gang Bang". After you've selected one, the GPS will guide you to the disctrict it's in. Go there and drive around a bit and you will soon see a car icon on your minimap, sometimes it has to be a specific location, a harbor for example when you need to find a boat.

    The early ones are easy but they tend to get a lot tougher due to the gang/cops chasing you. The golden solution for this problem is to buy the "Remove Cop Notoriety" and the "Remove Gang Notoriety" from the upgrades, it's listed under Gang Abilities. When you've bought it you can use it through the phonebook. You might also gained the "Mayor's Favor" which removes any notoriety. Call it in as soon as you've taken over the vehicle and don't step out of it because the notoriety will come back if you get back in. It takes a little while before you can use it again. GaTechGrad stated in the comments that you can quit to dashboard in order to remove the cool-down period.

    Edit: Many people are reporting that the drawbridges are still up after completing the game, this will make it very tough to bring in the bigger vehicles. It seems like some kind of glitch because the drawbridges should be down after completing the game. madmankevin had a nice trick though, just use the highway ! It's a longer route but it's safe and works !

    Minor Spoilers !

    Note: There are 2 STAG vehicles you need to bring in. If you already beat the game like me before doing these thefts it's impossible to get the STAG after you because they have disappeared, you are still able to get the 2 STAG vehicles needed though:

    N-Forcer: If you have done the "Kill Killbane" ending you will have it in your garage, remember you can always replay this mission through your phone if you did the alternate ending.

    Condor: You can get one to spawn in Sunset Park after selecting the theft, the two that are already there don't count.

    steveRPGmrActually, in order to reclaim your Police/Gang Forgiveness back, it is -not- necessary to Dashboard out. Merely SAVE your game then IMMEDIATELY RELOAD it. All Forgiveness calls will be RESET for use again! wink

    StriveI am a level 50... Have everything maxed out and i've never used cheats. I recently completed all of the thefts and didn't get the achievement. Whenever someone joins my game it tells them I am using cheats. What do I do? I'll start the game over and get the last achievements I need but is there anything else I could do?

    A quick hint for doing the vehicle challenges: If you are playing co-op you can get in a car driven by you partner and use the RC Possessor gun to control the vehicle so that gang or cop notoriety do not go up until you get in the vehicle. Just make sure that you know where you are going and your partner should gps the area you need to go to since they are the ones driving you should simply just follow them

    DigitalDemigodI was just going to post this. A friend and I did this and it made it really easy, especially for the helicopter thefts.

    Here's another quick tip that might help you with the N-Forcer trouble with car thefts:

    So when I replayed the ending mission I did the "Save Saints" mission again after I already played that mission. I joined my friends game after he completed half of "Kill Kilbane" and I finished that. What I didn't know was that it seems to glitch so you won't get the N-Forcer In your garage for the car thefts. The solution? Join a friends game, ask them to take out the N-Forcer from their garage, and you get in the vehicle and drive it to the chop shop. Hope this helps some of you out with this problem!
