Squeaky brakes

I have a 2011 2LS that I got brand new July 29, 2011. Once in a while (usually during the winter when it gets down to 40 in Texas) it'll squeak whenever I back out of my driveway. But afterwards the squeak would go away. Right now its a fresh 82 outside and I used some Turtle Wax tire shine around 3 hours ago. I backed out of my driveway so my mom's trailblazer can get out (its a one car garage so my Camaro goes in and my mom's stays out) and whenever I would gently press on the brakes it would squeak REALLY loud. It's a lot louder than normal. Any ideas what it could be?

Just a guess, but you might have some tire shine on the rotors. Try some spray brake cleaner on the rotors to get the tire shine off, but it would be a good idea to take the rims off as to not damage them with the spray.

After that bed in the brake pads, which has been dicussed on here many times before and that should help with the sqeaky brakes.
