Tried starting the car last night in -9°F weather and got a long crank of about 5 seconds before the engine decided to start. Took it home and checked the CEL. Found P1160 was the only code. This is a code for the throttle body spring not working. Most other people with this code reported high idle speed, which makes sense. It seems like this is probably just a fluke considering the engine performed well, but I'm wondering if you guys think I should bring it in to the dealership?
On a positive note, the car is a lot more fun in the snow with the stability control disabled due to the CEL. :grin:

Well, CEL turned off after 2-3 driving cycles so I'm cancelling the appointment with the dealership.
I'll report back if it comes back on.
