I have had my new car a little over a week now and was wondering, is it normal for the car to stall right after starting?

It's like I go to start it, and it seems like it starts, but then it quickly stalls, on the second try, it's fine.

is this normal, or a symptom of a problem?

This is, I understand, fairly common to 300E cars. I used to be fairly frustrated, expecting the car to start with just a quick tap of the key. I discovered in the owners manual that the correct way to start the car is to hold the key on the start position until the engine has thoroughly started, and then letting go of the key. No problems since. Hope this helps.
