I have that very same squeak, and as the time went by it go louder and louder. I finally took it in, and let me just tell you, it was a nightmare trying to explain it to the service guy. I finally got annoyed and told him to get in and I would show him.
So as soon as I started to move the car it started to squeak (I was in heaven, because usually the car is in it's best behavior at the dealer and I can never "duplicate" the problem). So I ask the service guy if he can hear it. He says nope! I drive away and for maybe a mile or so I keep hearing it and pointing it out to him but he still doesn't hear it. At this point I just want to punch the guy. So I ask him to drive it and maybe he can hear it then. Well, he SUCKED at driving a stick and I was getting pissed off at the fact that he was jolting my baby really hard, but he STILL couldn't hear it.
We take it back and all I said was, let me speak to the manager. The shop manager came out and I explained to him what had happened. He jumps in and as soon as I start rolling the car, he hears it. We drove around for a while and he noticed that it squeaked when I moved the steering wheel. He said it might be the brakes. He says that the car has a sensor that applies the brakes when the steering wheel is turned ever so slightly. So he recommended my brakes be looked at.
I did need front brakes anyways, so I shelled out the $$ to have them put in new ones. After a long wait for the car, 7 hours. I came to find that they were trying to fit the wrong brakes and the service guy says to me. "not sure if you know but your car doesn't fit the normal brakes, we needed to order some brakes from another dealer because it's a high performance vehicle. The ones we ordered are similar to the Corvette's brakes." All I was thinking to myself was, "you dumb piece of sh*** of course it's a high performance vehicle, WHY DON'T YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MY GOAT!!!!!"
So needless to say I was very disappointed but when I drove away I didn't hear the squeak anymore. But, then the next day. The squeak was back!!! It's been two weeks and it has become louder. I think I am taking it to another dealership on Tuesday to have them look at it again.
