Forza Horizon 5 hotfix patch fixes Hot Wheels bugs

Forza Horizon 5 received a colossal update last week with the launch of Series 10 and the Hot Wheels expansion. But Playground Games is still hard at work squashing pesky bugs and improving the experience.

A new Forza Horizon 5 hotfix is now live on Xbox and PC, bringing an array of bug fixes for the Hot Wheels expansion.

Hot Wheels bug fixes

Some tuned vehicles were undrivable in the Hot Wheels expansion at launch – even if players had reached the Hot Wheels Legend rank. Thankfully, the latest patch update fixes this issue.
