Should i still keep the corolla for know or take the ford escape? to be honest im not really into suv's and i have driven both and the corolla handles better. What do you think i should do?
Update: Yes the escape has slightly lower mileage. It has 103k while my corolla is at 128k. But i don't really drive alot i maybe put 2000 miles on it every year.
