Well supposing the average car gets 10k on the odometer a year, and your car is 14 years old. It would have about 140k on it. So eh, its a stretch.

It's not too bad, those cars last forever anyway. If it has been taken care of then it will be a good car.

if its been well maintained and will continued to be well maintained it will run for a very long time. my block has 250,000+ on my 90 integra sedan, but since i kept all the other parts in working order the car will run for a very long time. the trick to keeping a motor running for a long time is to change the parts that need replacing before they need repaired!

Acura's are great cars but make sure to look at the main componenets of the car like if engine or transmission leakage are not present. Also, test drive the car to see if there is any transmission problem or if engine is missfiring. You can also tell if engine is burning oil by touching the exhaust pipe, if it's too black then it's not too good.
