Yesterday I drove my...

Yesterday I drove my brand new Mazda cx-3 and suddenly it shake like engine stopped for tenth of a second. After that the car ran perfect though engine light appeared, Today the light was also on though after some riding disappeared. I am a bit confused with the situation,

Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?

No, nobody did anything.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your CX-3?

2016

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your CX-3 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I did not do anything. The light disappeared by itself after riding several miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I thought engine light cannot disappear by itself. Tomorrow I was planning to go to mechanic.
