Currently, multiple hard inquiries in a short time, normally 14 days, should be counted as one hard inquiry. Dealerships routinely check rates with different sources and each may require a separate inquiry.

Hard inquiries remain on your credit report for two years, but only affect your credit score for 1 year.

Since the assignment was two years ago, the inquiries are no longer affecting your credit score and either have fallen off your credit report or will do so soon.

That's exactly what's happened, vkg. I chalk it all up to a learning experience.
