Since I picked up my car last week, I've noticed that every morning I start it up and attempt to pull away, that the engine stumbles until it warms up a little bit, especially in first gear just starting to release the clutch. I currently have only 200 miles on the car. I live in Southern California so it's not really that cold here in the morning. Maybe 45-50 degrees at 7am or so. It has been raining for a week straight though but that shouldn't have an effect on a new car. Is anyone else having this problem? I was thinking that if this condition is normal that some of you guys in the snowbelt may be having the problem but even more pronounced. That is, if anybody dares drive their baby in the cold weather.

I'm starting to wonder if it's just my car or maybe a problem with just the 05's. Seemed better this morning though, but not perfect, still a little hesitation pulling away from the driveway.

these things are all aluminium engine and should be warmed up before you drive!!!! :cheers
Same engine as the Corvette. 30 seconds at the most, and that's just to make sure that the oil is everywhere. They do not require any sort of warmup. Starting and driving immediately should have no stumble or stuttering unless something is wrong.

Lo Octane ,
Yea, I think it could have been cheap gas because I'm on my first new tank of gas (it's was full when I picked it up from the dealer) and now the problem has gone away.
