Does the Ford Kuga have a wet belt?

I'm thinking of buying a Ford Kuga soon... Do they have a wet belt as well as the main cam belt? I'm asking because I had a Focus 1.8 diesel Sport and the wet belt snapped.

Should my Polo's stop-start be working cold?

The stop-start system on my 2019 1.0-litre petrol Polo is enabled with a stone cold engine: if I drive 100 yards after a overnight stop the stop-start is enabled. This can't be logical as the diesels all have to reach temperature before enabling it. Spoke to Volkswagen, but can't get a straight answer. I have also driven other petrol Polos and they are exactly the same.
