Cold Start

Does anyone else's Partiot chug a little on starts on cold mornings? Last week, we had a string of very cold mornings (by Texas standards) in the mid 20s. The Partriot seem to lug a lot while starting. It cleared up as soon as I drove it some.

not sure what engine that has but our V8 yukon would do that everytime when it was cold. There may be an issue with it, but it does clear up.

It is the 2.4L 4 cylinder. It isn't a big deal. It just seems odd being brand new. My other new cars don't do this.
