Hi I'm a long time lurker, first time poster.
I have a 2012 v6 Mustang with about 16,000 miles on it.

Sometimes when I start my car after it's been driven, I will get a nasty squeal when the car is idling. At first I thought it was just a belt or something but I read here it might be the pulleys. It goes away after a while of driving but it is pretty embarassing to turn it on and have it start crying, especially since it is a newer car. The problem is that my ford dealership is kinda far (there is a closer one but I didn't buy it there) so when I get there it has already gone away. I've taken it in twice, showed them a recording of the noise, bought that oil change package that comes with a multipoint inspection hoping they would find something but still they don't seem to interested in helping me figure it out.
I've already had to take it in twice because of a faulty break caliper. And now the front suspension is squeaking over speed bumps. I bought a new car to avoid a headache and it seems to have backfired. I'm just trying to see of maybe someone that has gone through this could maybe diagnose the problem so I can better describe it to the technicians or, if it is easy, fix it myself.
I bought the extended warranty -_- so I should be good for 6 years bumper to bumper.
Thanks for any input.

Hello Imaginaryderek,

You should bring it in to your local Ford Dealer and have them take a look at it. The Service Manager is in the best position to let you know if there is work needed, and about coverage you may have for it (warranty, recall, etc.). Let me know the outcome.

Also, you can check which ESP you have and its coverages here.
