Retaining last car used and my paint job

Why is it so hard for me to come back to the game and still have the same car and paint job selected? I shouldn’t have to go to my garage every time I launch the game to get back in the same car with the same paint job.

Mine will revert back to the first car I purchased which was the little red Porshe 944 after a crash it is 100% certainty but other than that hit and miss.
