No. Insurance will be through the roof! Go with Honda, Toyota, or even american sedans. Just the name Acura boosts insurance premiums.

i always recommend a Nissan sentra,there a good car, real sporty looking,and best of all cheap on insurance also,that's kind of important for a 16 year old,but Nissan has some good models to choose from and they are a very reliable car,good luck with it.

No becasue then everyone will want you to put a stupid fart can exhaust on it & other performance parts. We dont need 16 year olds that think they can race. Although I have a rear drive cadillac with a modified 350 chevy which makes Camrys jump off the road!

depends, Acura/Honda's will run forever and take alot of abuse. But they are sought after by tuners for their engines and bodies for racing. This could make them expensive depending on the area you live in and its import racing scene. Also there are tons of online sites to buy aftermarket bolt on parts. Alot of teenagers like them because they have the ability to be someone of a fast car. The most sought after models are the Type-R and GSR because they have high horsepower engines. The LS and GS are more common to find.IMO if you trust your kid then any car is great, but I know alot of kids back in high school who got them and got in to alot of trouble with tickets and racing because they had one.

I own several Acuras, I just recently purchased an 07 Acura Rdx, that is a truck but Acuras are glorified Hondas. This would be a good choice going with this car. When you get it (if you do) I would have all the fluids checked and or flushed, check the brakes, change the air and fuel filters, check the tires and cv boots/axle shafts, and for sure, check the timing belt, or better yet just get it replaced. It might cost you around 500 bucks or so but it is a piece of mind product good for 60k more miles. When you do the timing belt, please replace the water pump since it is right there when the timing belt is removed and then have the shop get a timing belt kit which consists of the belt, and any tensioners needed to do the work correctly. Check with Kelly Blue Book dot com and make sure the price is in line. Good luck hope this helps.

Not a bad car for a 16 year old. Wish I would have gotten one when I was 16. I had a cheap Saturn coupe. May not have been the best looking car but it was cheap, cheap on gas, and I NEVER had a problem out of it. Sure miss the gas milage. Oh and the first guy who answered, kevin. Integras are front wheel drive, they dont drift.

Yes, this will be a perfect car. The Integra LS and GSR models are the more popular trims. A Honda Civic is also a good choice for a cheap car. These imports have a lot of aftermarket parts. These cars will give a kid a lot of knowledge about cars also because they are built so simple. The maintenance and repair are low also, because they are very reliable.

Acura is not that cheap.Honda Civic Coupe is cheaper and it is the same manufacturer, even look at a Toyota Corolla, very dependable, low maintenance,. At 16, the insurance will be all time high for any cars.
