213,000 miles on our 07 Limited. Replaced AC compressor at around 200,000, which cured all the same AC issues of scroll valves, etc. Original CVT is just starting to be problematic (see my thread of Dec. 6th, titled 2007 Freestyle...OBD Code P0715...). Not sure what to do with that...anyone dealt with that code?
I'm sure you saw this already but best I can come up with for you:

2004 Escape XLT FWD 260,000+ :)
2006 Escape Hybrid AWD 125,000+ :mrgreen:

300,000 miles ... that's a lot! Actually, amazing since back when we sold cars that got close to 100,000.
We and our 07 FS is chugging along just passing 220'. All good except we hit a deer and need to change that lower bumper cover ...

There is a 2006 FS SEL sitting over here for $5,950.00. Blue, very nice and 140K. And yeah, the CVT has been fixed.

That would be the tipping point for me. If the CVT needs any repair, I want nothing to do with it...beyond typical maintenance, fluid change etc...I also have a real problem spending 6 grand for an 11 year old car. But I'm also a cheapskate. ;)

I say that because I bought mine for $8000 out the door w/132,000 [I think, might have been 152?] 8 years ago. I just think you can get a better price.

I saw one perfect black two-tone for $500.00. CVT toast though.

Hey all,

I know I'm jumping on an old thread here, but I'm considering purchasing a 2005 freestyle sel as a back and forth to work car. (Approx 30 country / city miles per day) Pros, nice body ( for north Midwest rust), nice interior. Cons, 210,000 miles. Asking price is $2000, but I think I could get it down. Am I crazy to consider this vehicle with 210k miles? If anyone is still out there I'd appreciate any response. Thanks!
Honestly? NO way. Avoid at all costs. Trust me.
Too much money for it. I just bought one with 225,000 on it for $1800 in good shape. Put in new ball joints and rear caliper and pads. Changing fluid and going to park it at the airport at our summer house for a way to and from the house.

06 182,000 bought new been a very good car. Replaced haldex pump and filter, ac compressor, water pump, changed cvt fluid and filters twice. Normal brakes rotors pads, coolant, spark plugs. Been lurking here for a few years this site helped tremendously on diagnosis’s and saved me $$$$ by doing all the work myself. So Thank You all for that.

Out on a road trip again, in Southern Texas passing 223k. 26 mpg hauling 75 +/- some. The Freestyle is a great road touring car!

It's not a bad car but the seats suck ass. No support, hard where should be soft, soft where should be hard. Designed by committee.

He's right. I've never liked the hard-ass seats in the Freestyle.

Our 2007 is doing fine at 233K. Mileage is increasing! Pushing 2,300 miles on our latest TexMex trio, we received 28mpg plus. We did some stuff before this trip: New sparkplugs, new coilpacks (expensive at $75 a piece!), increased tire pressure to 35/36, new oil and air filter, and ran a tank with fuel injection cleaner.
