Exclamation WRX eating Batteries

My 2017 WRX is eating batteries. at 1500 miles a new battery had to be replaced. Now at 2600 the battery is going dead after a few days of non use. Nothing was added to the New car. Nothing was left on. Dealer tell me they are not putting strong enough batteries at factory. Can't really believe that being my 2008 Legacy had the same battery in her for 68,000 mile. Anyone out there hear of a fix for this. Had to be left out in the cold when I take a long trip and my car will not start at the airport.

Did the dealer perform a check of the charging system before telling you that? Sounds like your battery might be overcharging, which can be very bad. See if your batter is very hot after a drive or if it is swelling up or leaking. I'm surprised the CEL isn't on if that's the case. Take it back to the dealer. Tell them that you want it figured out and leave it there. That's complete BS that they just told you they are "not putting strong enough batteries in from the factory" and gave it back to you IMO.
