What type of battery for a 2011 nissan versa

Asked by Jan 17, 2017 at 11:38 PM about the 2011 Nissan Versa

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a new battery because my old one died. I had a hard time finding what was recommended in the firsts place, which was a 51R, I went to several places and they all said the 51R was what I needed, so I bought one, and it does not fit! It is too thin/small. Now I have to take it out and return it, but I still do not know what type I need. Please Help ASAP. I am unsure what the Trim is, but I think it may be an SL.

Group 51R is the correct size for your vehicle. What is the size of the OEM battery? the group 51R should be 5" wide. Even though it might be thinner it will still work. Are you saying because it is thin, it moves around in the mounting bracket or tray?

Had the same prob with 51R. It was too tall and left too much space as well. Terminals were too short to reach. 2015 versa note s plus. Changed to the T5 but the terminal bolt is short.... Made it work.
