How do you figure?

The only thing he should be paid is "actual cash value"... what amount that represents is up for debate, but it's not going to be MSRP once he drives the car off the lot. In particular, it's last year's model since a "new" car right now is a 2013.

Value will be based on what the selling prices are for similar cars in the market, but that won't be MSRP. Insurance company can search listings within a given radius of the OP (either used cars with similar mileage, or leftover 2012s) and see what the dealers would sell them the car for.
