over the past couple of days I've noticed that it's getting harder and harder to start my car.

The car has 5k miles on it - I had it at the dealership for the oil change about two weeks ago. The temps here are 40-50 on average. I never had a CEL light. The battery seems charged, yet when I turn the key over it won't start on the first try.

It looks like it's hesitating and then dies.
Has anyone else expierenced this?

Today I had to crank it 5 times today before it finally started. The problem goes away if I drive it and then shut it off. Then the car starts on the first try.

Take it to the dealer and see what they have to say. Also, try your secondary key - it could be immobilizer fouling up.
