It’s like going to the dentist, doctors or veterinarian’s. It's that once a year trek to get your car inspected. Is it going to be $12.50? Will it be more? Today it was my wife’s car, the Saab's turn for its 'well visit,' so-to-speak. My idea of getting an inspection done is waiting until either you get a warning from the police or two months over due, which ever comes first.
