I was test driving this Saturn today for my teenage son and when slowing down to a stop it had a pretty loud whine. Could this have anything to do with the automatic transmission? If not, what could it be? It is the only thing stopping me from buying the car.

    It's hard to say without hearing the noise but I would guess transmission. Have a pre-purchase inspection done by a garage knowledgeable in Saturn products, it will be money well spent, hat they find may divert you from buying a "bad car" and or what they find (lack of maintenance or repairs needed) can be used to negotiate price.
