2004 Scion xB Question: Slow Start

In cold weahter my car takes an longer to turn over than it does in the summer months. it is about 4 seconds to the less than 1 second in the summer. Should i have the altenator or battery replaced, they are both original to the car? -
Answer 1
get the battery checked first. the colder it is outside, the less power it has. in the real cold weather, you really need a good battery to spin the motor over at the right rpms to get it to fire off right away. battery test is very easy and is free in a lot of shops. Roy -
Comment 1
JUST BUY A NEW BATTERY. -
Answer 2
Mine did the same, I checked the battery, got 100% charge. I don't think you should worry. -
