07 Saturn vue hybrid has bad batteries... can I swap in batteries out of a 08-10 malabu or aura car..if not why??

Tim is very hot. You can hear a rubbing sound from passenger front break pads changed about 3000 miles ago

Took my car in after engine was making a rattling noise. It was diagnosed at a GM dealer and I was advised that the timing chain needed replacement and the estimate is about $1900. Car has 122K miles on it. Manual does not indicate that there is a need for timing belt maintenance so I'm confused and shocked with the amount estimated for the work. I want to make sure I'm not being taken advantage of.

Constant when driving, just noticed smell. Wheel is hot to touch on center.

You put key in ignition and turn but not started yet. There is noise that comes the area of the glove box. It last about a minute and stops whether car is running or now. I have around 88,000 miles on the car. No diagnostic code. In Sacramento California area.

What sould an A/C compressor cost on a 2007 Saturn Vue Hybrid

3 days ago my ac stopped making the air cold, but the fan still works. Turn off the ac using either the fan switch or the ac button, and a horrible noise comes out of my car, turn it back on and the noise stops. I can change the fan speed to anything but off and it is fine. Start up the engine and the noise is there for about 10-15 seconds, then it stops, though it rattled a little when I was coming to a stop a couple times today. My dad thinks the clutch in the ac compressor is not disengaging. Any ideas about what is going on so I can better explain this to the mechanic, and do I have to take my car to the nearest authorized dealer repair place (75 miles away) or can I take it to a local mechanic?
p.s. The car has 22,000 miles on it if that helps.
