Not sure. You are still in the 3yr36k bumper to bumper so you might get one out right. Also, most bat manufactures come with a time period of direct replacement without prorating.

your battery is covered under 3 year or 36,000 mile factory warranty....you should not have to pay for anything

:grimrippe Just got the news.
The battery is prorated. I have to Pay 50% of the cost which is $35.00.

That Sucks

Bumper to Bumper has much fine print. Batteries rarely warranted by a car company, or anyone, beyond 12 months without prorating. It is a known wear item.

My 08 Titan is only 16 months old. battery is dead. No good reason. Went to OReilly's auto parts and they can sell me a battery for $85 with a 3 year full replacement warranty. Why didn't Nissan put that type of battery in the Titan. This is BS. I have to pay $65 for the dealership to run a test and now replaced the battery, What a load. This is a dissappointment. I would expect this from Ford but, not from Nissan.

It is considered a wear item just like brakes and belts... When they die just go get a new one with a 3yr full warranty....

Stay AWAY from Nissan Batteries! THEY SUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Go to an Auto parts place and get another brand. I had to change mine after 11 months and the dealer wanted to charge me $35.00 for a new one. BS I said and walked away.

True...but why not spend the extra money to not be stuck needing a boost or being broke down with another crap OEM battery. My battery still had half it's warranty left but I got the Optima yellow-top anyway. I live in the woods, and it would cost $400 for a tow truck, or $100 for a taxi to the nearest shop to get a new battery if the truck died. $250 for the optima is well worth the piece of mind.

That is exactly my point, I am just waiting for the Battery on my new Titan to die so that I can get a real battery. Mind you, this is my 6th Nissan vehicle. From the 240sx, to 3 Quests, one Armada and now a Titan. All the batteries were sh%^&*!!!!!!!!!!!!! The rest of the vehicle was great that is the reason I've been a loyal Nissan customer.:bangit:

Nissan batteries are made by interstate. So do you think interstate batteries suck too? BTW if you buy a new battery from Nissan the normal battery is a 24F and has an MSRP $94.99 and the big tow is a 27F has a MSRP of $114.99, the new replacement battery comes with a two year FREE replacement and a 84mo prorated replacement. You can buy cheap batteries at walmart, but what you are buying is a warranty and a dealer network.

THEY might be made by interstate but they are made to nissan specs which means they are not made like the same battery that would be on the retail market. The BFG Rugged Trail tires that come on the Pro4x's are made to Nissan specs and come with 3/32nds less of tread dept that the same BFG retail tire comes with. Nissan cuts costs with little things like that. Here in Arizona the heat killes battery's normally within 2yrs so its best to replace the factory one with something from AutoZone or Checker and has like a 3yr full replacement so when it does die ( most likely on a Sunday when the dealer is not open ) i can take it out and replace it that day or just replace it at the store since they will do that for free also....

You should stop now before you come off looking dumb. Nissan has no influence on how interstate makes the batteries. The truth is that it is the same battery that honda/acura, ford, mazda, etc... get, the only difference is the sticker that gets put on the body of the battery. I wish you actually knew what you were talking about. From what I have heard, they did see a decline in quality when they went to getting the batteries in mexico. However the warranty is still one of the best.

So you are telling me car manufactures don't put the cheapest part they can find so there build costs are at the lowest they can be ? Believe what yo want but I guess I'm stupid for thinking company's are for profit....

The original battery from when the car was built is not the same as the replacement battery. the main problem with the original batteries is that nobody knows how long the battery was sitting in the suppliers inventory, then how long it sat in the plant before install, then how long that car sat in the docks waiting for transport, and then how long it sat at the dealer. it doesn't matter what battery you have, if it's not kept charged it's going to fail. when a battery drops below a certain percentage of it's normal voltage it starts to die.

If you were refering to the original battery as being JUNK, I will agree. But the replacement batteries are good batteries with an excellent warranty.

Sorry yes i was refuring to the original battery's but it still wouldn't even think about going to the dealer for a replacement when there is a Checker or AutoZone on almost every other corner at least where i live.
