Default 2013 Impreza sport sedan - alternator failure

During vacation, and as far as you can get from help the alternator started screeching and smoking.

With 74000 miles, itís was unexpected.

Anyone else report early alternator failures on this forum?

860.00 for replacement with new Subaru parts.

Not readily available from rebuilders or from Subaru. Waited more than a week for a replacement.

Your experience?

Michael

Haven't heard anything about it. What year car?

Were there any symptoms before that happened? I wonder how much the alternator is, it probably isn't too hard of a diy.

Yours is the first failure I've heard of.

Remanufactured units are $200 on Rock Auto.

Hope they at least bought you dinner first.

LIterally looks easier to change the alternator than a bulb on this car it sits right on top of the engine

You didn't check salvage yards? Was probably like 50.00.

Either way sounds like a fluke
