I had a charge battery warning on Christmas eve, when it was about -20 here in Calgary... this was shortly after taking several short (10 min) back-to-back trips. Cold weather starts are very hard on batteries, and it only gets compounded by all the electronic gizmos in our cars.

I threw on my $30 C-Tek charger from Canadian tire overnight and I haven't had any problem since. It's pretty sad to have to plug in a brand new $60k car... but I've just accepted it as a fact of life with everything we demand from our cars these days - heated seats & steering wheel, nav, bluetooth, 16 speakers, comfort access, and better fuel economy.
