After driving 450 miles from Boston to Rehoboth Beach, we parked the car and left it for 3 days. On the fourth day, we thought we'd take a little excursion. Immediately I noticed that the battery and brake lights were illuminated on the dash ... power was fading. After driving a bit, we pulled into a service station in Rehoboth ... the alternator died. So this is my official souvenir of the trip ... The Subaru had 88K miles on it, so I imagine it was a legit failure.
