Is the Ford Powershift automatic now reliable?

I am thinking of buying a 2016/17 Ford Fiesta automatic but am worried about the Powershift gearbox. Did Ford sort out the problems in later models?

Yes. Ford elbowed the dry clutch Powershift from the Fiesta entirely for the current model and replaced it with a six-speed torque converter auto. Don't buy a Fiesta Powershift: www.honestjohn.co.uk/carbycar/ford/fiesta-2013/goo.../
