Problem with sqeaky wheels at low speed

Seeking help to identify a problem with high pitch sqeaky noise (almost sounds like a slight scraping until the car gets to a certain speed) coming from wheels at very slow speed. Its a little sporadic in that it does not occur all of the time but the noise is there on a regular basis. The car is just coming on one year old. My sense is that its potentially the braking calipers that are lying against the brake rotors but wanted to see if others have advice and if this is something that the dealer can fix.

Any feedback is much appreciated!!

Thanks

Thanks, About 20,000 miles car is just one year old so no issue with replacement parts. There is no squeaking sound when the brakes are applied so that is also a thought that causes me to think its the brakepads on the calipers dragging a little or not adjusted to be far enough off from the brake rotor.

squeaking sound at low 20-30mil/h

I have the same problem. Dealer had the car 3 days, they said rusty brakes, for me total b.s. The car will be 1 year in June-12000 miles now. I'm waiting for this 1 year checkup -oil change and all and I'm not taking any expl. about brakes. This is annoing! BT
