After the T-Car is destroyed in a fight, the Titans go to a used car lot to find another vehicle.
The episode opens with Plasmus wreaking havoc in Jump City. The Titans go to fight Plasmus, and they do so by using the T-Car to get there. The Titans try to use their attacks on Plasmus, but it's no use. Beast Boy thinks of an idea to defeat Plasmus. He hops into the T-Car and rams into Plasmus, self-destructing the T-Car, killing Plasmus in the process. Cyborg is sad, not because he thought that Beast Boy died, but because the T-Car is destroyed, but Robin is happy that this is their chance to get a new car.
The Titans have no idea how to buy a car at a car shop, but Robin reassures them not to worry since Robin calls himself a 'master negotiator.' Back at the Titans Tower, the Titans look at some of the new car's design, but Robin shuts it down and says that buying a pre-owned car is the plan. Robin tells them that a car salesman is evil and tries to sneak in the sneakiest tricks when a customer wants to buy a car. According to Robin, there are three rules of car-buying: Never allow the dealer to size you up, never accept the dealer's initial offer, and never be afraid to walk away.
The next day, the Titans visit a car dealership and are surprised to find that Doctor Light is the car salesman. He states that he has given up his life of crime and pursued his dream to be a car salesman. Robin thinks that it is all lies, thinking that Doctor Light is trying to make them overpay, but Raven suggests giving him a chance. Then, the Titans state that Robin has plenty of money and that Robin is the adopted son of a billionaire, Bruce Wayne. Robin excuses the Titans for a moment and proceeds to wack all of them (even Starfire) with his staff. Robin tells the Titans that Doctor Light has sized them up, now knowing how much money he can squeeze out of them. Doctor Light reassures that isn't the case though.
Doctor Light then introduces the Titans to multiple designs of cars, most of them representing DC miscellaneous. However, the Jokermobile catches Robin's attention, but Doctor Light tells him that he won't be needing it, but Robin wants it. Robin takes the Jokermobile for a test drive and asks Doctor Light for the features the car possesses. There is a laughing gas button, an oil slick switch, and a horn button. Robin notices a taped-up button that says 'DO NOT TOUCH,' and Doctor Light is afraid that feature is no longer available. Robin wants to buy the car, and Doctor Light proceeds to get the paperwork. In the office, the final price of the car is $22,000. Robin flays the paper away, thinking it's a joke. The Titans groan and tell Robin to pay the man some money, but Robin reminds the Titans to deny the salesman's initial offer. Robin wants the price to be lowered, but Doctor Light refuses. Robin then demands to give him ALL of the car's features, specifically the DO NOT TOUCH button. Doctor Light says the button is unsafe, but Robin thinks he is lying. He proceeds to prove him wrong by going outside, untaping the button, and pressing it. The Jokermobile transforms into a gigantic robot and proceeds to smash all of the cars in Doctor Light's dealership. The Titans think they are doomed, but Robin reminds them of the most important rule: walk away. And so they do. The episode ends with Doctor Light implied to have died from the robot attack, with his helmet rolling on the ground, and Robin giggles guiltily and sheepishly.
