    get in a car/ get out of a car

    I've just read on a not realiable site:
    get on/get off is used for: a bus, a train, a subway, a plane, a ship, a boat, a motorcycle, a bicycle
    and
    get in/get out of is used for:
    a car, a taxi
    Do you confirm it?

    Yes.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: get in a car/ get out of a car

    I agree- they're the prepositions I'd use. I'd also use get in a van/truck/lorry.
