Anyone experiencing issues such as this on very cold startup? While the weather was cold, the oil and coolant were relatively warmed up. I was able to repeat this noise 4 startups in a row. Sounds like the ICE and electric motor are fighting each other...

My guess is that will return. If it were a typical ICE, I'd say it sounded like the starter was sticking engaged after the engine was started.

Likely a similar situation in the tranny.

Make sure you record the circumstances it occurred under so if it repeats you can help determine a pattern and report as much info to the dealer techs as you can.
