2016 Ford Focus - Is this car doomed?

Just bought this car yesterday. Great deal. Noticed no issues. Thought I did my research but am finding a ton of transmission problems with other reviews. Was wondering if all 16 focus’ were doomed? Only 41000 miles on it

Not sure about doomed, but there sure are a lot of issues for such a young car at CarComplaints. If you like this car, it may be worthwhile looking at buying an extended warranty directly from Ford (via their dealers). Most brands will sell them until the comprehensive warranty is expired (3 years 36K or so). Here are some tips.

what is the warranty situation with the trans? is ford extending the warranty? how long is the powertrain warranty?
