Approx 6 weeks after purchasing my car - new the air bag service warning light came on, brought the car in for service - replaced the air bag harness. About 6- 8 months later air bag service lights came on again, plus the traction control alarm. Called in for service replaced the air bag harness again- called about service, than the problem went away. About 6- 8 months later this happened again on a long trip (600 miles), came home nothing. In oct 2012 the problem occurred again replaced the air bag harness again, all out of my pocket - not covered under extended warranty. Lasted about 6 weeks, all alarms warning going off, air bag, traction, and now the tire pressure was off, and oil light warning. Took car back to original dealer, stated entire air bag needs to be replaced, can't find a reason for the traction? I don't feel safe in this car. It has been 4 weeks since my car was at the dealer, no alarms until yesterday, now the air bag alarm is going off every 2. 5 minutes, very annoying if you are in the car traveling for more than 15 minutes. I asked the dealer to make me an offer on this lemon of a car. There is something wrong with the electronics on this car.
