Mine has always been sluggish to turn over and ive owned the car for nearly 4 years, i always put it down to a characteristic of the car.
With the new battery it turns over significantly quicker than the old battery, so i suspect the old battery has been deteriorating since ive had the car, also ive noticed that the head lights dont dim when the air con comes on, and the engine feels smoother ie less lumpy on tick over.
So yours may be ok and last for years more....i only changed mine as it recently started to click the solenoid rapidly (repeated clicking sound) on cold mornings before it turned over.
