My 2001 Mercedes Benz ML430 sometimes lugs to a start. Usually this happens when I start it first thing in the morning. After that it usually starts right up. Is it the starter? If so what would be an honest ballpark quote from a mechanic.
It ignition takes a while to take when I turn the key in the ignition. I recently replaced the battery. Sometimes it starts right up and it is running fine with the exception of the initial starting of the engine.
