You might need a new battery. Are you using a trickle charger? Check for a parasitic electrical draw? Is your car still under warranty/bumper to bumper warranty. Stop into your nearest dealership for them to diagnose it.

I took it to the dealership the next day and a complete diagnostic was done. The battery is in good shape. Was told the electrical system continues to work even with the engine off. Advised to start the vehicle at least every couple of days. Going on vacation tomorrow for 2 weeks. Based on recent experience, I don't expect the suv to start when I return. Will have to call roadside assistance again. Wasn't expecting this issue when I purchased the vehicle. Thanks for your input.
