Are they telling the same thing or is there any subtle difference between them? thanks.

    "Get out from" a car / room / place is not idiomatic in modern English as commonly used worldwide, and 'get out of' is the appropriate usage. However people do use 'get out from' when it is immediately followed by words like under / behind / underneath etc (as noted by mike_on_stack in the answer below) where 'from' is associated with what follows and not directly applied to the car itself: get out from under that crane before you are flattened by a ton of (whatever is in that shipping container) // would you kindly get out from behind that newspaper and call our son's Headmaster? – English Student Jun 13 '17 at 14:11

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it should be a comment to the original question and is not an answer per se. – CJM Jun 13 '17 at 14:51

The use of each phrase is valid under specific circumstances.

  1. Get out of my car is used when the person saying it is inside the car and telling someone else (who is also in the car) to get out. Usually this is said with a negative tone.

  2. Get out from my car is weirdly worded. Get out from UNDER my car is used. Would suggest never using Get out from my car.

The only difference I can see is that "get out from my car" is not how English is generally spoken. It's meaning is clear enough, but it sounds non-idomatic. Everyone I know would say "get out of my car".

Here is a non scholarly reference ;)
