As long as the car starts up, who cares? My Ford Escort used to take a while to fire up first thing in the morning, and fire up right away anytime later in the day.
There also is a certain amount of bleed down fuel psi wise as a vehicle sits. It sometimes takes a few seconds for a fuel pump to pressurize the rails, the fuel to fill the injectors, and if there is carbon on the back sides of the intake valves, even more time.
As long as one is not taking 30 seconds or longer to start, or the battery is almost going dead in the process, i think that would be normal.
No longer working at dealerships. Government employee. Now i get paid to fix Fords.
