2016-2018 FIESTA reliability

Considered buying a used 2016-2018 Fiesta Hatchback. When looking at various websites, I see MANY used Fiestas for sale. Initially, I was glad I had a large group from which to select from. But, then, I got to thinking, "Why are FIESTA owners trading in their cars so soon? I would like current and previous FIESTA owners to give their experience(s). Honest opinions, please. Thank you!

Re: 2016-2018 FIESTA reliability

2012 to present Fiestas with the 6 speed automatic have a serious design flaw that Ford has admitted to. The clutches and seals fail continuously, my 2014 has 60,000 miles and is due for it's 6th transmission overhaul. There is no permanent fix for this defect.
