Toyota RAV4 Problems

Engine Won't Crank Due To Starter on Toyota RAV4

Problem Description and Possible Solution

If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

Rav4 won't start, no problem with battery as lights, etc will work, and clicking noise while attempting to turn-over. Hasn't been diagnosed but certain it's the starter.
My 2012 rav4 has been hesitant to start about 60% of the time. When it does start it takes at least 2 attempts for it to turn over and start. What should I do?
