I just got my T5 about 3 weeks ago and so far love it, with one exception...
After being parked in a lot all day when I was at work, when I went to start the car it took about 5 or 6 seconds to start. The car sputters like it wants to start, but doesnt catch right away like it has every time before. Initially I thought it was a one time issue due to cold weather. However, the following morning, after being parked in my garage all night, I had the same issue and again after another day of sitting in the lot. When the car is warm, there does not seem to be any issue with starting, only seems to happen during a cold start.
I spoke to my sales guy and also called the dealership and spoke to a mechanic. Both seemed stumped by the problems, especially since the car is only 3 weeks old and has less than 500 miles. The mechanic though maybe something electrical. The sales guy thought it might be bad gas and the mechanic wasn't so sure. I filled up for the fist time a 2 days before and drove over 100 miles with no issue so I am inclined to throw out the bad gas issue also.
I have an appointment to take the car in this week, but was hoping someone had the same or similar issue so I can at least direct the mechanic. I have a feeling it will work fine for him (my luck)!
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
