It's under factory warranty. Why worry?

My wife's 2003 merc has the same issue but it is very intermittent. I suspect it's either in the key chip or shift lever. Repeated tries always gets it started. It used to happen every few months although it's been almost a year since the last time.

I'd suggest taking it to the dealer [repeatedly if needed] even if it's starting fine when you get there. Back when my wife's car was still under warranty it had fuel shut off issues. I took it to the dealer twice but because they didn't keep good records, when the fuel pump died 30 miles after the warranty ran out - I had to pay

Have it checked for the ignition switch recall, if not already done:
