Default Starter problem? Relay problem or others?

It is a 2006 touring, 2.4L NA

Sometimes when I turned the key, I heard only only 'click' sound, nothing happened, then I turned it again, the engine started.

This happens once every few days.

Is this possibly a starter problem or starter relay problem, or others?

Any suggestion is appreciated.

sounds like a connection issue. i'd start by cleaning and inspecting the battery cables on both ends. a little labor, but it's free

How old is the battery?
You might want to consider getting an battery load test on it just to make sure it 's not the battery before looking at the starter.

I had the same issue, turned out to be a bad negative battery cable. I changed it in the autoparts store parking lot.
