Yup. For me, it is about 90% of the time if the car has been sitting overnight or longer. I have almost 7k miles on my 2017 E400. I have tried turning the key, waiting about 20 seconds while I put on my seatbelt, etc., and then starting, but even that trick doesnít work much of the time. My thought was that the fuel pump needed time to get fuel to the engine. But like you, it always starts right up on the second try. It also always starts right up later on that same day. Maybe something to do with fuel delivery in cold engines? Or, maybe the trolls in the engine drink too much and need not one, but two swift kicks to get out of bed?
