Would this be ok for my 2016 Nissan Leaf Tekna?
D51R is correct for a Leaf right?
Looking to upgrade to an AGM style battery as I'm trying to resolve the dangerous braking problem that occurs at low voltages.
Yellow Top Optima D51R is correct size and good choice for USA Leafs, but I don't know if European Leaf Tekna uses the same size. I replaced OEM Nissan batteries in 2011 and 2015 with D51R Yellow Top Optimas and will purchase one for the 2019 as soon as the OEM battery starts getting weak.
Finally (per Leftie), I replaced my '13 Leaf's original (6.5 yrs) 12V battery. Initially considered the Optima, but bought a Pb acid Exide.
After reading these, glad I didn't get the Optima;
