When I say "it failed," I mean they wouldn't let him drive it off the lot. Harlen wasn't planning on buying a new truck that day; he had checked local inventory, and hadn't seen anything that was interesting to him, though he knew he'd stay in the Toyota family. But here is what happened.
For the 2000 Tacoma, which had 50,323 miles on it (he doesn't drive much), Toyota paid him $17,520 (about 1.5 times blue book). They threw in a $1,000 customer loyalty bonus, and then didn't tax him on the purchase price of Darth.
So in a nutshell, Harlen paid $6,500 for a 2009 truck with all the bells and whistles. Lucky, lucky day!
