What kind of car do you recommend bringing to post, given the terrain, availability of parts, burglary/carjacking risks, etc.? What kind of car do you advise not to bring?

I would suggest a small SUV. You want something you can use on the back roads that isn't too big for European parking places. - May 2016


Any car is suitable, it depends on your own needs. Streets are good. Car parts are available. - Jul 2014


Any type of automobile will suit you. Slovenes love cars and you will see many BMWs, AUDIs, SAABs and Volvos. - Aug 2011


Small is better, because parking is hard to find and streets are narrow. - Jun 2011


Any car is fine. - Mar 2011


Streets and parking spots are small. There are quite a few major car dealerships for getting your car repaired. We had our oil changed at the Toyota dealer and it was extremely expensive, even with the VAT refund. You'll need to buy a toll sticker for your car for driving on the freeway, 90€ a year. The Italian highways have toll booths and it's about 3€ to Aviano AFB each way. The drivers here are kind of crazy... but nothing compared to the Italian drivers. ;-) - Jun 2010
