"It's sweet you're worried. But, I'm Salvatore's girl, I'll be fine."
— Maria Latore.

Taken for a Ride is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Maria Latore from her home in the Saint Mark's district of Portland Island, Liberty City.


Toni drops by Maria's apartment, with Maria on her cell phone to her dealer. Maria decides to meet the dealer in Chinatown to buy some "sugar", with Toni driving her to the dealer, which is revealed to be a Sindacco member, accompanied by a Sindacco driver in a Sindacco Argento. After Maria enters the Argento to conduct the deal, the meeting is revealed to be a Sindacco trap, as they attempt to kidnap Maria by driving away in the car.

Toni is required to give stop the Sindacco kidnappers by repeatedly ramming their car (but not completely destroying it), until the kidnappers exit the vehicle, to which point Toni may kill. After the kidnappers are dead, Maria rejoins Toni, hailing him as her hero, and asks that he drop her back off at her apartment. As they arrive, Maria asks if Toni could come in for "coffee", but Toni declines.
