    Car sputtering on cold start?

    I turned the car on about 12 noon, it was about 50 degrees outside. It had about a half tank of gas. I turned the car on, and it started sputtering for about 15 seconds. No warning lights came on, and it stopped on it's own and I drove 400 miles on it and it was totally fine.

    My guess is the car didn't turn over properly. Anyone else experience this?

    I had the same thing this morning when I stated my 2012 ct. It was pretty cold out -- about -12c. Any ideas what he noise is all about? It went away on it's own after about 15 seconds.
