Question about "aussteigen" I read the following sentence : " Ich steige aus dem Taxi. " I don't understand why "aus" is just after the verb and not at the end of the sentence.... Could you help me to figure out?

I‘m not a native speaker in German, but as far as I know you also have to put „aus“ in the end of the sentence: ich steige aus dem Taxi aus. Otherwise it sounds not completely. Other examples: ich steige in den Bus ein. Ich steige aus dem Bus aus.

The verb in your sentence isn't "aussteigen", it's just "steigen"; you can already use that alone with "aus dem Taxi" or "ins Taxi". If you want to use "aussteigen" (or "einsteigen" for the opposite action), you have to use Marina's construction.
