Car slow to start...battery dying?
Yesterday I realized my car is kinda slow to start. It turns over but it takes longer than usual. You think I need a new battery? None of my warning lights are on though.

I replaced mine just to make sure it was fresh. But I live in Canada, not Florida. They are cheap enough anyway. It could also be the electrodes in the starter. They are cheap & the dealer can put them in pretty easy.

check the water in the battery.
check the battery level.
if all good, starter might be the problem

its your battery, you don't have any alternator problem or anything like. your car shouldn't have those problem until you went over 150k miles
