OK...I am a complete novice. We recently moved to Germany with the military and my husband is out of country...so I need a little help. The weather dropped into the 30s over the weekend and my 03 Outback didn't want to start. No sound when I turned the key. On third turn, it started. No other issues. It's done this for three straight days the first time I start it. I drove it to a shop and was told I need a new battery and alternator...no diagnostic printout to refer to. I read through all the posts on here for alternator issues and I'm not having them (so far)...lights not flickering or dimming, the battery/charge light comes on with key in position three then goes off once engine is running (and they don't come back on, no issues with speedometer. Should I order one now to have it installed or wait to see if other "symptoms" occur?
