the gas might get a little expensive and so will the insurance but it's a great car. i have one myself. i'm 19 now but i got it when i was 17. it's a really fun car to drive and my friends can't annoy me for rides since it's only a 2 seater and usually it's just me and my girl.

Hondas are very reliable maybe too much power for a new driver. Would be better for a mature teen with good driving skills.

S2000s are reliable, but this car in the hands of a teenager is like giving them a gun to shoot themselves. It's like driving a race car so it's hard not to drive fast in it. Nope, unless your teen is extremely responsible and drives cars with a sense of maturity, it's not a good choice.

Its hard for someone to learn on this car because its unforgiving at sometimes.For instance, the rear wheel drive configuration is tricky for noobs when driving in the rain. If you don't know what you're doing you're going to spin out or kick the tail out.

Service and parts is usually more expensive than a regular Honda because they are usually "specialty" parts and they take longer to work on.
