I am trying to understand which of the following two sentences is more appropriate to signify getting out of a car:
(1) Ich steige aus dem Auto aus. (Usage of aussteigen)
(2) Ich steige aus dem Auto. (Usage of steigen + aus etwas (dative) )
The only difference I can think of is that (1) refers to getting out of a car in the normal fashion – open the door and step out. (2) Can refer also to climbing out – i.e through the window if need be. Therefore aussteigen is the preferred option?
