Just bought a used 2012 Focus Titanium

And now I am now filled with doubts and buyers remorse. I went shopping for Dart, Cruze, Sonic, Focus, Fiesta looking for the manual versions. The Cruze and Dart were a lot of fun with the 6 speed manual. I also liked the focus though, and since there was a used 2012 on the lot with only 2k miles on it, and Ford was more flexable on the price than the Doge was going to be on their brand new darts, so I decided to go with the focus.

Unfortunately the used car was an "automatic" which worried me right off the bat. But I had not really done any research on the focus "automatics" only on the Cruze, and Fiesta, because I was really looking for a manual.

I should not have caved to the pressure, but I did, and now after reading the forum it sounds like Fords DCT is full of issues and I made a terrible choice. It's the first time I have ever been convinced to buy the extended warranty. Am I in for it now?

Car was $19953 + 3k warranty and service package for 2012 Focus Titanium with 2k miles on it, has 18" wheels and MyTouch. Did I just get screwed?

Also It appears I don't get my 3 free years of Sync now either since I bought the car "used".

I already regret buying the extended warranty, on the other hand it sounds like I am going to need. This is the first ford I have purchased.
