My next service appt is not for another 5K miles which is about 3 months out, any suggestions on how to resolve this squeaking issue short of taking it back to the dealer again?

2) Rear glass defroster doesn't seem to do a very good job, it only clears like a half inch wide strip for every line that goes across the glass. Is this normal for the 5th gen?

Thanks
The defroster should clear the whole window, but it may take some time. If it never clears then you'll want to raise it with the dealer. See below about your brakes.

Squeaky brakes are a fact of life with all cars. When it is humid/wet and the car has been sitting, surface rust will form on the rotors. When you apply the brakes they will squeak.

Perfectly normal. You didn't break anything and the brakes will still work as intended.
