Do you keep your foot off the gas pedal when you start it? If not you should. The computer will do everything for you. If you are doing everything by the book you could have a problem.

Do you have remote start? If you do does it start normal or does it do the samething with the remote start?

What is up with the poll at top ??? You should not be putting your foot on the pedal. These cars are not like the older car models where you pumped the gas. Your car sounds like you might have a problem and should take it in, for sure.

Sounds like the 'idle air control' is having some type of malfunction. This is rare on these newer model vehicle, but stuff does happen.

I'd say it might be the petrol pedal. Have it changed for a proper gas pedal. ;D

I recommend taking it in so they can run the codes on the CPU, it sounds like something is amiss.
