Default How do i know when my starter is going bad?

I drive a 02 Honda Accord coupe. I went to start the car yesterday and i had to twist the key at least 5 times before the car turned over and while it was turning over, i heard a little clunking noise but the car acted normally afterwards. Sometimes it will just crank right up with no problems. It's not the battery because i just got that replaced last year. I called the honda dealership just to get a estimate if it so happened to be the starter and they said it would be about $400. Does that sound reasonable? If not who can put a new one in?

By what you stated it does sound like the starter. I don't know how hard it is to put a starter into a Honda but $400 sounds high. I was thinking maybe about $200, maybe $300 at the most.
