I didnt see this exact issue in the forum, so sorry if its been asked before, I tried. My 2017 kia forte has suddenly started making this squealing noise from around my front driver side tire. Its high pitched and only starts when the vehicle moves, even slow. It doesnt seem to get worse with breaking. Having said that, when i get up to speed, I dont hear it, until I slow down, and the sound is much more faint. Any ideas what this could be? This hasnt built up to this, I only just noticed it today.

Most likely your brakes are worn. Disc brake pads have a "squealer" on them. It's a sacrificial piece of metal that touches the rotor when the pads are worn down to the point of needing replacement.
