    I’ve noticed that when I am accelerating there’s a high-pitched squealing sound that sounds like it’s coming from the tires but I’m not exactly sure. I’ll upload a video to YouTube and embed it because I honestly have no idea what the issue could be.

    The car is near-new? Free dealership oil change? Get them on it. Check dipstick first though.

    Part of me is going rather nuts over it. No issues until I take it in for maintenance and all of a sudden I have issues.

    Perhaps something was spilled or left in the engine bay. Have you popped the hood and taken a look?
    Are all the lug nuts tight?

    Yeah that oil change includes tire rotation
