Noticed some difficulty starting my 08 hatchback. Went to Advance to have battery tested; which showed bad. While searching battery options we found a notice the Versa is tagged as "Electrically and Environmentally Challenged by J.D.Power. Suggest AGM battery."
Advance did not offer an AGM and claimed their supplier does not offer that type. I bought a T4.
I have been looking around the 'net for a definition and description of risks without success.
Does anyone know what the tag means?
Thanks

I was unable to find a battery for my 2009(MT-6) that had the same dimensions as the original and I did not want to get one at a Nissan dealer. I was able to find a Battery at NAPA that was a little longer but still fit in the battery tray, however, the battery heat shield had to remain ajar on one corner away from the engine. I believe the note refers to the fact that it is a unique size battery in the Versa.

Frank 2009 Versa S sedan MT-6 with 72700 miles.

Agm, is a active glass mat. It usually will last a little longer and no maintenance. You should be fine using a regular battery, just may not last as long.

Wal Mart has had some batteries that were rated very well. I would just go with with whatever has the most CCA's that will still fit the Versa, if it were me.

Unless your vehicle has some insane power draws or you are hard on your battery, just get whatever fits your budget and comes with a good warranty. Interstate usually sells "Scratch and dent" batteries and I havent had any issues with them.
