Then it appears the slow cranking is not due to a low battery (caused by parasitic draw). So I'd say the starter is going bad.

What engine is in your Impala?

Back in the day, slow cranking was common on high compression big blocks. After shutting them off, the motors would heat soak and be very difficult to re-start until they cooled off. But I'm not aware of any such issues with the motors in recent vintage Impalas.

[Edit]One other thought: Inspect the wiring going to the starter and be sure all the connections are clean and free of corrosion. It might be that you have a corroded connection that works OK when it's cool, but has high resistance when it heats up. That's only a theory But before you buy a new starter, you might check the wiring first.

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.
