Forza Horizon 5 Coast To Coast 3 Stars require you to achieve 28 Near Miss Stunts while driving at high speed on the highway.

The FH5 Coast To Coast Story should not be a problem since it involves racing in a straight line; however, the 28 Near Misses can become a burden, not because they are hard to perform but because of the spawning cars.

Or simply put, for the FH5 Coast To Coast 3 Stars, you may not have enough cars to get the 28 Near Miss Stunts.

Luckily there is an easy fix for this, and below I’ll tell you everything you need to know about this Horizon Apex Story.

Forza Horizon 5 Coast To Coast Story Location

As you can see, this race takes place near Los Jardines, which is at the eastern end of the highway.

As you can guess, your goal is to drive west, towards the destination point, in a hypercar.

This time you’ll be driving the amazing Koenigsegg Jesko, which is fast enough to beat the timer.

This means that you should not be worried about the clock because, for the 3 Stars, the time is not essential. And you have plenty of time to reach your destination.

However, what should worry you are the 28 Near Misses you have to get for the 3 Cost To Coast Gold Stars.

Coast To Coast 3 Stars Tip

The problem with the Forza Horizon 5 Coast To Coast Near Miss Stunts is that there are only a handful of vehicles on the highway and too many Near Misses you need to perform.

If you don’t know what a Forza Horizon Near Miss is, well, it is a Stunt you can perform by driving close to another vehicle at high speed.

To get a Near Miss in Forza Horizon, there are three conditions you have to be aware of:

  • You are not allowed to bump into another car
  • You have to be close to it to score a Near Miss
  • You have to drive at high speed for the Near Miss to count

So, the main problem with the 3 Golden Star goal here is the vehicles on the highway. Or the lack of cars on the road.

As said, you can fix this before starting the Coast To Coast Story. 

Before starting the story while in your car, follow these steps:

  • Open the game’s menu 
  • From the tab on top of the screen, select Online
  • In the next window, turn Horizon Solo ON, as you see in the following picture

By going Solo, you’ll drastically increase the number of cars that spawn on the highway.

However, you can further adjust this number by modifying the difficulty level.

This is done from the same menu:

  • Go to the Campaign tab
  • Select Difficulty
  • Select the Drivatar Difficulty

Since you’ll be playing Solo, the Drivatar Difficulty increases the number of cars on the highway.

The higher the difficulty, the bigger the number of cars. Or the highway traffic if you want.

One last thing worth mentioning for this FH5 Story is that if by any chance you can’t score the required number of Near Misses by the time you reach the destination, you have the option to turn around and do another run on the highway.

Obviously, the timer matters, meaning that you can’t ignore it, but as mentioned, there is a lot of time for this event, so you can scout the area if you need more Near Miss Skills.
