The spark plugs in it were the wrong model.. visibly shorter than the correct plugs. Granted, now it's running "faster" and with my wife's lead foot, this may not be a good thing.
And no, I'm not the one who put the wrong plugs in. PO or the dealership did. We always thought hard cold starts were due to a crap battery. We replaced that last year, and the mechanics at the dealership told us the plugs were fine when she asked them to check them out during routine oil change/maintenance. Hooray for my natural skepticism finally winning something for a change.
