Turn key, sometimes clicking sometimes nothing, and others it just barely catches, like weak battery, but figure if it was battery, it would have died by now as its been two days. Starts 1-3 tries. Thinking starter, but still after only three years?

If it is the original battey, replace it! Depending on prodction date, it could be, or close to, 4 yrs. old!! Starter is most likely not the problem.
