Yes, that's it. It's more expensive once the car is above a certain age and mileage, but it covers what you need covered - again, excepting battery capacity. If you can switch, I suggest you do so.

Sorry for the late reply.

So I called multiple dealers to get an estimate on the Nissan Preferred Gold warranty and none of them called me back.
I will call again on Monday.

One guy did pick up and asked me to bring in my vehicle to even get an estimate. I couldn't come in but is that standard?
He was also selling a Nissan Leaf so idk.

Also, I was looking at my wheel bearing (I think that's the correct name) and they looked pretty rusted for only 10k miles.

Should this be something I should be worried about? If so do you know the cost to replace them?

Here are pics:

The pic links didn't work. The wheel bearings are inside the hubs. Do you mean brake rotors? That's common now - they rust when the car sits. It's essentially harmless. There is an inspection for the Nissan warranty, but that's usually just a ($100) formality to make sure nothing is wrong with the car when the warranty is issued.
