They Battery to my Kia Optima LX 2.4L Gas needed to be replace it was a AGM70L-DIN 70ah(20HR) 120RC 12V 760 CCA(SAE) 608A(EN) AGM Battery. I took it to a shop and they installed a Interstate MTP-48/H6 Battery in it 730CCA Lead Acid Battery. I had it put in a week ago I haven't had any problems with it everything works fine. But the Interstate website Recommends to put the MTX-48 H6 Battery in car which looks to be the same specs as the Factory Battery and also AGM Battery. And going to other websites they all same to but a AGM battery in my car should I be worried?

Also the only difference I see between the two batteries is 30 CCA, 40 Amps, and (RC) Min @ 25 Amp 5 more for the MTX battery.

the factory spec is agm so it needs another agm battery. the lead acid will work ok for a while but because it is not heavy duty as the agm it will have a shortened life. have you got a decent warranty ?
