Do you have any aftermarket accessories on both of the cars? Aftermarket accessories like car alarms have a pretty bad parasitic drain from what i've encountered. How old are the batteries? They could just be past their life expectancy date. Usually a good battery will only last about 4-5 years. Then once its drained one good time by say leaving the lights on it'll never be the same.

Fist thing that I would do is pull the batteries and have them checked. If they're the delcos still they could be ready to pop. I had 2 delco batteries that bloated and one had started leaking.

Just two slow 4 doors.
