Default Carborator Ajustment cost?

I'm going to be getting a car here within the next week or so cause I'm moving out and I'm in the $800-900 limit. One of the cars needs a carborator adjustment. And I'm wondering if any of these other cars would be a good deal either. If you could tell me any of them you would recommend over another, please do. Thanks for any help.

I suppose. But then again, I'll only be coming to school about once to twice a week if I'm lucky.

I would go with the Honda. Dependable little cars that last a long time if take care of them. I would avoid the two older ones unless you are a mechanic and/or really enjoy working on cars more than driving them. As for the Kia, I just don't know enough about them other than the fact that they are really cheap. It's doubtful that a Kia will last very long in my opinion.

If you know how to, it shouldn't be too hard to adjust the carburetor yourself. Here's how: http://lifestyle.iloveindia.com/loun...etor-1548.html

It's not that bad to be honest.

From the looks of it, I'm liking the Dodge Ram. Those usually last a long time, my neighbor has one from the 70's in his garage, and it still runs near perfect.

The Dodge Ramcharger is a tough one. But it's a late 70s V8. =no power, low compression engines. Avoid it. With some different pistons to bump compression up to about 9.5:1 it would be good, but otherwise, no. Won't get more then 12-14mpg either.
Carb adjustment wouldn't be too hard to do yourself. Just do some research on it.
I would get the Honda. Kias are kind of cheap, like stated. Hondas are pretty reliable.

If you want a 4x4, get an 80s Toyota, haha, anyone seen the TopGear where they see just how tough those trucks are? Undestroyable basically.

Just remember.
Speed kills. Drive a Honda, live forever.
