If a car doesn't have a gauge, it probably has an idiot light. So if the alternator dies, you'll get a warning illuminated. Some cars have both a gauge and an idiot light. Best of both words...

I know when the Alfa's alternator croaked after being overworked from recharging a completely flat battery, I got a nice big red light with ALT in the middle of it. All of our other cars have a little red pictorial of a battery.

Yeah, I've got an oil pressure gauge and an oil warning light (just in case you didn't know that something's wrong if your oil pressure is 5 PSI).

Except the tach only goes to about half of what say, a 600cc sport bike engine would go to. :lol:

Parts of the Sonic design cues were taken from motorbikes - example is the dash cluster and the front headlamp setup.
