Ignition problems in cold mornings, Focus 2010

Hi there,

I own a Focus 2010 Aut. Base version, 27,600 miles.

It was used when I bought it back in June of this year.
We started to have cold mornings here in my city, so now I have issues with the ignition. When I try to start it, it takes more time when I twist the key, and sometimes I hear that the ignition process wants to fail, you know, like a step, then it starts. After that, the RPM's go down and the engine almost die. Well, sometimes it dies, but If I press the accelerator pedal, it recovers before dying.

If I let it die, I start it again easily and everything is normal, no problems during all day, only in cold mornings.

Last week I went to the dealer because I had service scheduled, so I explained my problem, but the bad thing was that the last week was warm here in the city, so they couldn't see/reproduce the issue. They did brakes service, motor wash, oil and filter change, air filter change.

What could it be? Considering the car is pretty new and everything should be original and from factory.

I appreciate your help.
