It's not a CVT, it's an eCVT. There are no belts, it's all done with electric motors. Ford and Toyota use the same method for their eCVTs.

There was no recall on the 2013-14 transmissions which is the problem. After that they seem to be OK. Actually there is no maintenance on the eCVTs other than perhaps an oil change.

That's right, trans oil change at 150k miles, if your getting 2017 you have nothing to worry about.

Ford's been making the same basic eCVT transmission since 2005. They've worked out all the bugs by now. The real secret is that the volumes are still so low, that the beancounters haven't bothered to try to reduce the costs of it and skimp wherever possible.
Toyota's reputation was built in the 80s and 90s and since then they've been riding it while doing little to actually separate themselves from the other OEMs. Statistically there's no reason to trust a Toyota more than a Ford anymore.
