Some days it starts right up,some it takes a few cranks.I am reaching 50 thousand miles on my 03 svtf ,am the original owner and it has done the funny start from the beginning. I tried to see if weather was a factor but it was not. After 4 years it still runs better than ever on the track and street.

I wouldn't worry. Starts faster than my '92 Bronco did...

Fastest starting car was my '68 Mustang...man, when that thing was warmed up, it would fire before the first crank even finished (cold was a different story :D ).

Yeah, I bought mine in April with 37k miles and have already put 5k miles on her...that's a whole year's worth of mileage in a normal year for me in just 3 months and a week, although 2k of those was because of a roadtrip up to Illinois, so I'm telling myself that doesn't count
