Might still be under warranty...have the dealer test it. If not, plenty of after market options available...quiet a few threads on battery choices.

Get auto parts store to check the battery can hold charge. If battery is ok you have drain somewhere - you can get a tester to connect to your multimeter and pull each fuse in your fuse box to measure current on each circuit (perferably with door closed and car locked so the electronics are shut down) - if you can drain battery in 12 hours - it should be easily to see 2amps plus drain on one of the circuits. If it is accessory circuit that is causing the drain you could remove fuse until you get that taken care off (good auto electrician should also be able to do this for you).

I had similar problem in a porsche - turned out tobe bad alternator diodes - alternator would be warm to touch after leaving car off overnight. Alternator rebuild fixes that. Hopefully you don't have to go that far ....

The battery is already shot if it's been drained more than a few times. It simply is not worth messing with if under warranty and not worth messing with in the scheme of being stranded somewhere.

The warranty gods favor you. Take it to the dealership and let them fix it for free
