Question type: General

I have a brand new 2017 elantra and since its started to get colder out
whenever i start my car it will ding and flash 3 or 4 degrees three times and
then stop. the temp readout has always been right, and changes properly with
the weather but i do not know why it is alerting me when its 3 or 4 degrees.

Check in your owners manual, see if there is a signal for prefreezing conditions, or you could just check with your dealer, it is still under warranty.

Yes, it's a warning for possible slick roads, all temperature based.
