Are you buying it, or is your dad buying it?
If you are buying, look into used. I was fortunate enough to get mine during the great fire sale of the 08 models in early 09. New Coupes and Sedans were around mid to lower $50k's. Cars.com alone has tons of 08s for right at =<$50k. If price is a big factor and you can get over not driving new, saving $15k+ going low milage used is the way to go.
