Buying and Maintaining a Car
Buying a car – whether new or used – is one of the biggest purchases we make. It is important to take your time in deciding which car to buy and not be pressured by anyone who simply wants your money or your signature on a contract. Once you decide on the vehicle that best fits your needs and budget, shop around for the best price, know the vehicle’s history (if used), and be prepared to walk away from the deal if your questions are not being answered. Before you buy or lease a vehicle:
- Know the value of the vehicle by checking vehicle pricing guides, newspaper ads, the Internet, or by comparison shopping. Popular publications include the National Automobile Dealers Association’s (NADA) Guides, Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book, and Consumer Reports. Some may charge for this information.
- Always read and understand your purchase contract. Carefully

Just as there are a variety of technologies available in conventional vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles (also known as electric cars or EVs) have different capabilities that can accommodate different drivers’ needs. A major feature of EVs is that drivers can plug them in to charge from an off-board electric power source. This distinguishes them from hybrid electric vehicles, which supplement an internal combustion engine with battery power but cannot be plugged in.
There are two basic types of EVs: all-electric vehicles (AEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). AEVs include Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs). In addition to charging from the electrical grid, both types are charged in part by regenerative braking, which generates electricity from some of the energy normally lost when braking. Which type of vehicle will fit your lifestyle depends on your needs and driving habits. Find out which BEVs and PHEVs
Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are all responsible for safety on Montana’s roadways. Whether driving, bicycling, or walking, everyone must take care, because a collision with a motor vehicle and a bicycle or pedestrian is often deadly.
Here are some tips to safely share the road:
Motorists: Avoid distractions while driving and watch for cyclists and pedestrians, including when entering or exiting parking spaces. Watch for pedestrians and yield to them when they are crossing at uncontrolled intersections or marked crosswalks. When turning, it’s also important to look for bicyclists and pedestrian who may be crossing the street at those intersections.
Bicyclists: Avoid distractions while riding. Increase your visibility by wearing bright colored clothes and use reflective materials and bike lights. Be predictable and use hand signals when changing lanes, stopping and turning. Obey all the same traffic laws as a motor
