Have you done the required maintenance on engine? What's your mileage? If your engine has adequate oil and fluid levels and isn't overheating I would not worry about it. My vehicle 2008 also has the same problems including airbag, low gas and whatever it feels like. Took it to dealership and its worse. There is a ECM and BCM that could be acting up. It's like a saturn owner has to be proactive and tell the dealership what parts need changing if they can't find the problem. It's a hit or miss approach at your expense sadly.

yes I do keep my maintenance up plus I have them check it before I drive a distance.
