Your problem maybe as simple as old spark plugs, a minor timing difference or air getting into the gas line that has to be pumped out before the car will start. So long as your car starts in under 30 seconds it shouldn't do any harm.
This is common as a car gets older and most likely can be fixed with a tune up and changing the "O" rings on the fuel system.

This sounds primarily like a starter on it's way out. The next time the starter will not engage the first time, have someone else hold the key into the start position and you tap the starter with a hammer and if it engages, replace your starter. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do so.

You are probably experiencing a failing starter relay. The contacts begin to corrode from the current drawn when starting the car. This causes poor conduction and the clicking you hear. Eventually, it will stop working altogether. The starter relay was added as a recall item to prevent the same thing from happening to the ignition switch (which it did in vehicles before the recall). The starer relay can be found in the very fromt of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, mounted on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

This doesn't sound like an alternator problem at all, It sounds like an EGR issue or vapor lock issue.

Hard to start when cold


it is not good to use the remote start every time you start the car, this can cause some major damage to the starter, i suggest replacing the starter and then telling her to start the car manually unless absolutly needed to use the keypad.

remote start is made to use once daily in the morning, so your not gettitng in a cold car, not for eccesive use.
