Hard starting

Anyone experiencing hard starts on these vehicles? I'm considering buying and just happen to have a rental for a couple of weeks. Last two days, engine turned over for a few seconds before start up. Sounding more like an engine with worn points rather than a computer controlled fuel injection. I've been running it in ECO mode.

Wouldn't say that's typical of the model. There's a chance that the battery in your rental could've been a bit rundown.

Got it thanks. Boy, I'm glad someone replied. It sounds like the forum doesn't have many active folks? I posted a couple of other questions also but no replies yet.

Our RS starts very easily. (Could be the low-viscosity 0w-20 oil?) I do know, when its time for a new battery we'll be getting an AGM battery. PulseTech Xtreme Charger is a fantastic product for charging and maintaining your battery. I concur w/the previous post.

My RS starts pretty quickly but I dont like the stutter upon first taking off.
