Been back to the dealer twice for right front squeak. First time diagnosed as missing a bolt on the control arm and loose bolts. Problem returned a day later and second trip to dealer they said they needed to tighten other bolts. Picked up car and less than 5 minutes out of dealer problem returns. Decided to take a look under vehicle and see what looks like oil on some of the suspension. Paranoia or could they have used some sort of lubricant or is something leaking?Seems as if its on a number of the components especially the one in second picture Sound is only when coming to or accelerating from a complete stop or accelerating from coasting in traffic

Re: suspension creak and unidentified leak

ran across your post and wondering, Are you getting it all the time when you have Slight acceleration and bumps in the road ?

Its only at extremely slow speeds, primarily when coming to or accelerating from a complete stop. I ruled out the brakes as it will do it while coasting and acceleratibg. Also a road abnormality such as a speed hump at low speeds will make the sound. Id say 75 percent of time the last two weeks it makes it at varying intensities

Unfortunately bought it to the dealer today while it was raining and the sound vanished. The dealership knows thw sound and was confident the bolt restoration and retourquing should have done the trick. Im getting the sense they made a lucky catch finding the defective factory issue ( missing bolts) and this is a body/trim issue
