So we finally picked up the car from the Honda dealership last night. I was surprised they were open until 9 PM and just in time for my husband to come back from work.
Then this morning I drove it to the inspection station to get it re-inspected. My husband still took my car because he had to leave the house by 6 AM. The inspection station had told me I might have to wait about 2 hours because it's the end of the month and the inspection station would be very busy. But instead, I didn't have to wait at all and the whole thing was done in less than 30 minutes. My husband's car now has the new sticker and is safe to drive.
I am glad this ordeal is taken care of with a semi-happy ending.
