So I bought a 2016 Grand Touring a month ago with about 24k Miles on it and in near mint condition. I'm absolutely in love with this car but am a little concerned about the choppy engine start up. The weather is quite warm now, but i'm still getting a delay and that high pitched start up sound when i hit the ignition. It may be normal, I was just expecting it to be a bit smoother given that this car is nearly new.

How long a delay are we talking about? My CX-3 basically turns right over within say a second of pressing the start button (with the brake pedal depressed), unless I purposely don't have my foot on the brake which just turns on the power, then I hear that high pitched whine you mention.

When you say choppy do you mean it revs a bit before turning over? On a previous vehicle I owned I had this happen from time to time and was told it was the battery charge level. Not saying this is what may be happening in your case, but it's worth having the dealer check out in any event.

yeah, it takes about a second. It might not be abnormal. My expectations of the startup may be what is jaded.
