Default Transmission issues in a 2014?!

The transmission issues with Ford are absolutely ridiculous. I just bought out the lease of my 2014 Ford Focus a month ago and now the car is stuck in the shop with transmission issues. I was driving to an important appointment (which I missed) when it just stopped moving forward and I lost all power. Anyone else have something similar happen? If so, what was wrong with your car/how much did it cost? Itís been at the dealership for a week and a half now and I still have no exact answer as to what is wrong. Apparently, just to diagnose the problem the whole transmission needs to be overhauled and the labor alone is around $2000!! Thatís before I even know whatís wrong and know how much the part to fix it will cost. A year ago I heard about a transmission recall and had the clutch replaced, is there any way it could be related? If I had known that a car this new would have transmission issues I never would have bought it in the first place. The dealership canít even work with me and give me a loaner car while the work is being completed. All I can hope is that we will figure out the issue and will have a car back soon! I used to think very highly of Ford vehicles but after this catastrophe and all the things Iíve been reading about all the transmission issues Ford cars have I donít think my next car will be from Ford. I mean címon, itís a 2014, I shouldnít be having transmission issues! My 2001 Mitsubishi was more reliable than this and I would take that car back in a heartbeat at this point! If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!

i bought a '16 focus in Jan, '17. build date = 11/16. I was 'assured' that the 16s were fine. Then I received the class action notice that covers thru '16. I'm not sure if they're just being inclusive 'just in case', or if the problems did indeed persist. I've read that the trans issue was resolved by 11/15 AND another that said 11/16. Very disappointed either way. I simply wanted a reliable compact. If anyone can respond re my 11/16 build date and the question just above mine, please do.
