If you have not noticed any change in performance, it may be a sensor going or gone bad. But it could be any of many sensors. To take it to the dealer, they would charge an arm and a leg just to tell you why the light is coming on.

Definitely do the timing belt & plugs if not done already! Depending on how the job goes $300-$500. Rear drum brakes on these cars have a tendency to last a VERY long time(I've seen 150,000 miles) because the majority of the braking gets done in the front.

Check your battery terminals are not loose or corroded.
Check your alternator dive belt tension is OK.
If no problem with drive belt, it may be worn alternator brushes.
If the problem persists get the alternator checked.

My 2004 Subaru Impreza WRX (automatic) has 71,000 miles and the check engine light came on today. Ther car still runs okay and was tuned up several months ago. Can I still drive it without damaging it?

When your check engine light comes on, the car is telling you there's a problem, but it's still okay to drive to your destination. When the check engine starts blinking at you, that means pull over and turn off the car before you incur more damage.
Please keep in mind that you shouldn't be driving it indefinitely without having your code checked (you can rent a code reader from most car parts stores) but that you probably won't kill anything if you drive it for a few more days.
