Let me elaborate on what I mean by this. My car always seems like it has a weak battery when I go to start it up. Every start is a hard start it seems. It is like the car struggles every time. It has never failed to start. Whether it is hot or cold, or if I have every single power accessory on or not a one, it has no bearing on how the car starts, it starts the same way every time.
I know it isn't a Subaru thing, or a 2.5 thing, because I've had numerous cars nearly identical to mine come through the shop at work and none of them seem to start the same way mine does. I've had the battery and charging system checked numerous times (Battery is less than 2 years old), always checks out perfect, as it should be. I worry there may be a problem with the starter. I'd hate for this car to potentially leave me stranded.
It always starts right up, and starts quickly, but it cranks slowly.
Here is a short series of clips of my car starting up:
(I own the domain dynamatrix.org... so you do not have to worry about any virus or anything. I promise if you get one it isn't from me or my site)
The best example in all these clips is at about 1:15, it is the 5th start. It is a warm start, and it kind of half cranks weakly and then starts right away.
