I have the opposite of this!
I got my car totaled, gone to talk with the Takemura, and when I returned to my apartment for the "Happy Together" quest, I saw my car parked outside in the middle of an intersection. (I used our good ol' pal's former bike)
"Tune Up" at "Go to Delamain HQ"
"Human Nature" at "Wait for the car to be repaired"
"Ghost Town" at "Go to the Afterlife" (The car appeared after the talk with Takemura, and before in "Happy Together" I first talked to the guy in the apartment)
"Automatic Life" at "Meet with Judy" (I called Judy on my way to talk with Takemura)
