Check engine light blinked at 1200 miles?!

First month of ownership, 1200 miles. On the highway pushed the gas to about 4-5k rpm, then the CEL blinked. I also felt the engine has some noise when that happened. I slowed down and that CEL blinked for about a minute and later went away. The car drove without any issue later. But I felt so nervous and called the dealer and was suggested to tow the car.

I feel bad.

Sorry to hear and hopefully its minor event.
Might be a bad and/fouled plug or sometimes bad gas can cause that or even the gas cap until seated. They will read the OBDII code to find out what is stored in memory.
I only had one check engine light come on briefly ... cylinder misfire ... and it corrected without every happening again.
