What causes a high pitched noise while driving on the freeway? on 2001 Saturn SL2

My car started making this noise (similar to a cassette tape rewinding) while driving on the freeway. It stops when I bake and slow down below 40mph. Is t related to the brake/rotors?

Great description! The noise you have described can come from a few different areas. It could be tires that have abnormal wear, brakes rotors, disc pads and/or bearings. It would require a complete diagnosis to pinpoint the exact source and the proper repair procedure. This testing runs $ 39.95 and is no charge with repairs.
