I have a 2019 sportage EX. Have had it for just over 2 months has 1300 miles on it. Twice, a few weeks apart, I have gotten in the car, put my foot on the break and hit start. The car...grinds(?) for several seconds before turning on, it's like you would expect when it's negative degrees outside, except it has the sound of full power behind it not the slow, low sound that comes with the cold. It did eventually start both times, but, I'm concerned with the hesitation given it only has 1300 miles on it. I cannot find any connection between the two times except it was sitting in my work parking lot. It has just under half a tank of gas so that shouldn't be an issue. Only 1300 miles and less than 3 months if driving so it isn't due for an oil change.
Anyone have this issue or any thoughts on a cause and/or if I should worry/get it checked out?
