    Hey Guys...car never made this sound until after I had her parked for the winter. Now I get a rear end squeak that's audible at low speeds. It's not a constant squeak, but occurs at low speeds and when I stab the throttle. Maybe something in the suspension back there? Anyone else have a noticeable rear end squeak when going 5-10mph? I usually have my stereo blasting, so it doesn't bother me, but wanted to see if anyone else has this issue. Gonna have the dealer look into it during my next check up.

    Maybe it's one of your active exhaust valves. Try putting it in track mode and see if the squeak stops.

    WNY Cat is right if it's squeaking with throttle pedal it may be the active exhaust valves squeaking when they operate but if you put it in track mode they open fully and if the sound disappears there will be your culprit let us know what you find!
