    Hard Start

    When I begin to turn the key the car has a delay and a lazy start like its not getting enough gas. Any ideas?

    Could also be a weak or battery going bad.

    Take it in to the dealer. Have them keep it overnight and start it in the morning.

    You have mostly very short drives don't you? Short trips kill batteries. The alternator doesn't have enough time to recharge the battery if the car isn't driven long

    The cold will show a batteries true status everytime. If you drive short distances may think about a trickle charger, and do it once a week to keep it recharged.

    Then again it could just be a bad battery on a newer car, hence warranty.
