Mjr do you know anything that could have caused them to start squealing so all of a sudden? Im just going to call them tomorrow and just ask if they'll take a look at it and see what happens from there

Its possible if there are wear detectors on the pads that one got bent during the inspection, they will make a hell of a squeal when they touch the rotor. These days service shops do what they can to ensure a customer will come back, they can't afford it, automotive repair has gone way down hill since the economy went south so don't just jump to conclusions that they want to scam you. I am sure if you call they will take a 2nd look at it with closer detail

sometimes change of temperature/moisture in the air.....often times a customer brings me a car with such a complaint as yours and the day they come in it is wet and or raining and it won't make the noise now if they did mess with it, about all they could do is either bend a backing plate in towards the rotor or move the squealers close to the rotor to speed up a sale = is it front or rear making the noise??

Its the front.
if that's the case then I may have to spend a hundred or two dollars because they wanted to speed up a sale?

Take into consideration what I said, they may not have rushed but just made a simple error, it does happen

Right, im going to call tomorrow and tell them it started squealing on the way home and politely ask them to take a look at it in case of an accident.

Between us though of course, if they did it purpose persay...wouldnt it be a bad idea for me to bring it back?

No, because you will have to verify all work, if they try to sell you pads or anything, tell them you want to look at it and see the damage and judge for yourself.
