Dry or Wet DCT on Ford Focus?

Does anyone know if the 2013 Ford Focus uses a wet or dry DCT system? Wondering if there is any regular maintance on them that would need to be done if it uses the wet system.

So does that mean I don't have to do any regular maintance on it? Or would it get serviced during the big intervals?

PowerShift (dry clutch) unit is sealed for life, requiring no regular maintenance.

There has been problems with the seals inside of it leaking and causing a shuttering/vibration when taking off. We have had several come back with this problem. Idk if ford has put a TSB out yet or not though.
