Lazy start

I don't know where to post this. My apologies. It's scaring me daily when I have to drop my son off to school. I have "lazy" start. I am attaching a 36 second video that shows that car eventually starts. It was NOT attributed to battery or starter by one mechanic. I didn't want to take it to Acura yet due to their charge to just "look at it" because I can't throw around money like that unless they roll it into the fix. But they won't. I am not making very much. 😔

Ah! It won't upload my video because it says it's 'too large'. It's 36 seconds avi. Took forever to convert. May I email it to someone!?

If your vehicle is the only way you can get your son to school, then you need to have the car fixed regardless of price. Or maybe just trade it in on something else?

Have you taken it to an independent shop? Have you followed the manufacturer recommended service intervals since purchase?

Yes, I have been good about servicing it regularly. I used to have a battery drain problem which we found to be related to the bluetooth, which was then disconnected.

Here's my video link: https://youtu.be/xY49IT7yM2M.

My money is still on battery. Due to the colder weather, battery symptoms are exacerbated.

Thank you ThoiBoi. I have managed to put it on YouTube now. Link in the above comments. I didn't remember to copy/paste it here and now I cannot open YouTube.

Nice DP by the way.

UPDATE:
I have managed to find a way to get it to a mechanic for a full 24 hours so let's see what it comes to.
I will report back my findings.
Tomorrow there will be a snow storm. :\
