My Saturn Vue was borrowed and towed. The front right tire is flat and turned at a strange angle and the car turns on, but doesn't move. What do you think happened?

A flat tire won't cause a trans problem. Are you sure the wheel isn't spinning in the tire.

I'm sure. I believe the car hit a curb. When the gas is pushed, the car doesn't move at all.

Make sure the trans fluid is full and clean. If it was hit, maybe it damaged and the fluid leaked out.

Just to add to this one look for the transmission leaking fluid and for blown out axle joints or broken axle joints.
