Unhappy 99C230 startup hesitation

It seems that I got this problem every year somewhere in may or april and then it starts up fine 2 months later. I am in Washington state and if it is the fuel probelm. What should I do? I have been adviced by the dealership to use octane 89 instead of 91. Is there something wrong with the car or it is just the fuel??? Am I going to get problems later on when the car gets old?

Be more specific with the "startup hesitation."

Also, is your car still under warranty?

It coughs to start

The car has 17k miles and it happened last year when it had 5000 miles. When you first start it up, the rpm won't go right up all the way. It stops at 5 or 600 rpm for a second or two, then it seems misfiring to start up slowly. It seems that dealer even doesn't want to deal with this problem at all. Ever since i had the first problem, I felt that the engine has not been smoothly idling at P.
