Hard starts

Just purchased my 05 wrx in feb. now as 2200miles on it. every 15-20 starts, the car will take forever to start. it will just crank over for about 10-15 seconds. and the rest of the time it will start right up. Anyone else have any problems like this. my car is bone stock so....should i take it to the dealer to have looked at?

I say, take it back to the dealer... Unless it's REALLY REALLY REALLY cold, it should start up within 1-5 seconds.

My Car started doing this in the winter. I figured out i wasn't giving it enough time in the on position before turning it over. You may already know this but just in case... Give it a few seconds in the on position and wait for the high pitched sound to stop then your fuel lines will be pressurized. Then it should start right up.
