In the last few weeks the car has been slow to start in the morning, but better later on. Then today it was even worse even after driving it. I had the battery, starter and alternator tested and everything was fine. What could be the problem?

When you say slow to start, do you mean it is taking longer than normal or do you mean the engine is cranking slowly?

Sometime when I turn the key it's like the battery is almost dead then it starts up after a few seconds - other times it starts right up!

If the starter sometimes cranks slowly, check to make sure all battery terminals are clean and tight. If they are, you need to have the starter checked to see if it is drawing too many amps when that happens. It may be in the process of going bad.
