What do I do I have 2 escapes. A 2001and 2013. Do I keep it or sell one?

Well the 2001 has 220,000 miles and I've been having problems with it and now I have minor problems right now but I use it as a winter beater. I have a 2013 Escape with over 100,000 miles. I'm scared to drive it in the snow because fords rot out. I got it cheap but I don't know if it's ok to drive

Well the 2001 has 220,000 miles and I've been having problems with it and now I have minor problems right now but I use it as a winter beater. I have a 2013 Escape with over 100,000 miles. I'm scared to drive it in the snow because fords rot out. I got it cheap but I don't know if it's ok to drive it in the winter and just junk the 2001? My dad says to just sell them both at auction and buy a Patriot. I've been asking many questions tonight on here and I want to decide before winter gets bad.

Other answer:

FlagMichael:
The 2013 has more strikes against it (see the first source – engine problems) but will still fetch a decent price. The 2001 has its share of problems but you would be lucky to get $1000 for it in a private sale.

A mechanic familiar with the Escape rust problem can tell you whether yours is dying, and if not it is probably the better one to keep as a backup if you go that route. The other one will bleed value a lot faster. You will have to balance the usefulness against the amount you would get at auction.

ANDRE L:
Sell them both and buy a good used car. Escapes are junk.
Love big words:
sell and pay off debt.
