There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.
Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.
And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.
Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.
Your gas cap on tightly?
Good luck with your problem.

ignition coil pack it intermitten.
also check the crank sensor and the main crank pulley, this is where the engine gets its firing orders from

Increased vibration from a vehicle indicates worn out engine supports. This vibration often disappears when revving the engine high, but is very noticeable at low revs.
You can have these inspected and possibly replaced to reduce the vibration cominf from your engine.
Hope this helps.

Problems with a new car should be under warrenty. Take it back to your dealer as attempting to repair it may void your warrenty and cost you big money.

My car is doing the same thing.... I have found that the likely cause is the catalytic converter.....I just had my factory converter replaced when the clamp rusted out...about 5 months ago...I'm heading back to the garage to see what they can do about the replacement one failing.
