    not sure about 08 starter--BUT previous year starters--EASY FIX--Contacts get worn out--and are easy to replace. any starter/alt shop will have parts.
    As long as you are removing--it an easy check. AND CHEAPER than a replacement.

    Slow crank does sound like battery or cables--check the connections--most likely need to be cleaned--do the EASY STUFF first.
    Clean batt posts and batt connections. make sure they are tight.
    08 should not have starter problems--YET

    If it's the original battery I would lean towards the battery even if they tested it. Did they actually test the battery under a load?
