Why is the start-stop function in my car not working?

I have a 2017 Ford Kuga, which has now done 4000 miles. Recently the start-stop function only works intermittently. The main dealer has said that I'm not doing enough mileage. However, I don't think that's true. What's your opinion?

You're simply not driving far enough to put enough charge back into the battery for the system to work properly.
