Need info before I buy

I'm looking at buying a 1998 GC Laredo tommorrow. It has 111,000 miles, loaded w/ leather seats, for $5,000. Two things I noticed: A couple of times as I shifted from park to drive, I had to "tap" the gas before it engeged the drive gear. Also, I thought I heard a faint "whining" sound from the rear. Any ideas or suggestions? I'm sinking every penny of my student loans into it, and I don't wanna have it break down a month later.

You need to have the tranny looked at first. The price seems right but, the tranny could just be a simple fix. Yet for all the loans, get a second opinion.
