Three Important Car Facts to Know Before Moving to Boulder

Three Important Car Facts to Know Before Moving to Boulder

Here are three car-related things I learned the hard way when I moved to Colorado:

  1. Car Registration is Expensive: It is 2.1 percent of the taxable value of the car (85 percent of the sticker price) the first year of service. In other words, if you get a 2021 car you will pay 2.1 percent of 85 percent of the sticker price of that vehicle. Not something you want to be surprised about at the DMV. Here is a Boulder County Vehicle Registration Fee Calculator.
  2. Get Snow Tires: All-weather tires are okay but snow tires change the game. Also, if you are driving on mountain roads on a snowy day make sure that your vehicle meets the chain law requirements.
  3. It Hails: Hail is common in the summer months in Boulder County so make sure to park your car in the garage (especially if you are located a bit east of the Foothills).
