"Getaway Car" is the title of a song written by songwriters Gary Haase and Billy Mann. The song was first recorded in 1999 by Susan Ashton, an American country and Christian singer, on her album Closer,[1] although it was not released as a single.

Since then, the song has been recorded by the country groups 4 Runner and The Jenkins, R&B group Dakota Moon, as well as the rock duo Hall & Oates. 4 Runner, The Jenkins and Hall & Oates all released their renditions as singles. 4 Runner's version, however, did not chart. Hall & Oates's version was released in late 2003 as the fifth and final single from their 2002 album Do It for Love, reaching #21 on the Billboard Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts with it.

In 2004, The Jenkins released their version as the second and final single from their unreleased, self-titled debut album. This rendition reached a peak of #38 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts in August 2004, becoming the Jenkins' final chart single.
