I don't think a Charger would be ideal for a first car. Fast, not that great on gas, and insurance for a 16 year old is going to suck.
Just get an older car for cheaper, and use the money you saved to get something better in the future. I had an '03 impala with 220k miles on it and I beat the shit out of it and it still went fine. Just get something that's good on gas, good with insurance, cheap to maintain, and something you won't mind getting scratched.
