Good Day

My 2016 Mazda 3 hatch (non skyactive) 1.6 have been hard starting every morning. Firstly note I am living in the Caribbean so its not particularly that cold on mornings but still is a bit.

My I press the starter the engine stutters a bit and I need to give it a little gas for the idle speed to smooth out. Now once it has started once or failed and tried a 2nd time it starts like normal. It then starts normally for the entire day. I only get this problem early in the morning when I wake up to make my commute to work. I have put on about 15k km's on it.

What can be the problem?

I think the Skyactiv engines had a recall relating to a cold-weather starting or performance issue. However, it does not sound like you are subject to this.

I would get it to the dealer and let them fix this under warranty.
