I just had the first squealing fan belt yesterday. It was 90 Deg F with at least 98% humidity. It started right after starting up the car and when I started to back out of the drive it was really loud. My neighbor about 3 houses down turned to see what was the racket. It lasted about 20 seconds or so, then went away. Embarrassing with a $50k car!

If it happens again I'll take it in to get that adjusted. I had the chance to hear a freinds D recently and have noted my A/C compressor is definitely louder, so I suspect something could be going on, especially with the squealing belt. Almost always a sign of trouble coming up.
