I know that there are numerous small drains on the battery while sitting, but is it normal for the battery to be dead after 5 weeks of non-use of the car? When I bought my Outback, March 2017, the car would not start on the dealers lot when he wanted to show it to me. At that time, he blamed it on a mat that did not allow the rear hatch to close all the way and drain the battery. I have had other events that lead me to not trust the dealership. Otherwise, I love this car and if anything happened to it I would buy the exact same thing today. Thanks.
