My wife's FS went 235K before we sold it. Mine is at 185K but I did the 6-speed swap so maybe it won't count when I get there.

How involved is that swap? Not looking for the details, just a quick rundown of the process. I like ours enough I would consider doing it if the CVT would go.

Thanks!

That makes me feel really good about how long I can expect my freestyle to last. I just hit 73k miles.

Just make sure you are taking care of the CVT! Change CVT fluid and High pressure filter.

I have no idea about the pressure filter... I changed the cvt oil at 60k miles but they didn't know what that was. I took it to a ford dealership in Oklahoma.

LOTS of info on here about the high pressure filter. I've changed mine twice in the 3 years I've owned it. Not too difficult.

I'm not very handy when it comes to these things. I was informed you would have to take the transmission out to change it.

You don't have to remove the transmission, only one of the mounts on the side. Go to this post and read over it. Really not that difficult to do...
