On a car this new?...Do you have a car charger for your cell phone that you leave plugged in at all times? Some cars constantly supply power to these even when the car is off. That can quickly kill a battery.

just a question for you.. if you lock the doors is the alarm setting? i have only seen this problem on genesis that have had the rubber stop for the hood switch either removed or not installed when new. this keeps the cars computer "awake" and acts as a draw on the system.
