Depending on the condition, they are excellent first cars. Accord and Civics are pretty much mechanically the same. Depending on the model though, some accord and civics are a bit "girly". They are both good on fuel and reliable and they don't have a huge amount of uncontrollable power.

Highly recommend both.

I have owned two Civics over the decades (1974 and 1979 models), and I bought my daughter a new 2006 Accord for her 21st birthday a couple of years ago. I've seen Honda's products to be a "given" in terms of their quality, and so as I look at your question I'd see the only variable is the 16 year old guy. Some drive sensibly, and some a bit too sporty / racy. My daughter's Accord is looking brand new and working accordingly. My 25 year old son demolished his car that I bought him, for reasons that were totally his fault. So the issue I see here is not the car, since Honda products have always served me well (I even have bought Honda lawnmowers since around 1983). The variable here is the 16 year old guy. Guys that age can literally "make-or-break" any car. God Bless you.
