If they replaced ceramic brake pads without turning or replacing the rotors, it likely would squeal.

As it's a warranty service taking it back to the dealer to correct it may be the only option. There's other posts on the forum regarding squeaking first thing in the morning while in reverse with various service bulletins on what is the solution.

Hopefully the dealer can get this resolved.

i just got my car back from the dealership from them fixing that problem in my encore gx, and they said if it was before 12k miles, then the consumer has to pay for it :(

That's a snow job. Find another dealer or call Buick Customer Service. Bumper to bumper warranty means you don't pay a dime until it expires. Not before.

Try a good hard braking to set those pads in and loosen up the parts.... I think they make a chemical to put on disc brakes to stop squeal..

Have 2021 Encore GX and Dealer says the squeaky brakes are a result of FDA requirement to reduce copper and other harmful chemicals in pads because of runoff from brake dust. Also it should go away after 12,000 miles. Dealer is not authorized by Buick to fix.

Unacceptable for a new car. Wonder if is covered under Lemon Laws.........?

I am really unhappy that my New 2021 Buick Encore Gx breaks squeal loudly every time I backing out of my garage. I been to dealership twice to resolve this problem. they told me they are not authorized to fix it or replace the breaks unless its broken. I am calling GM filing a complaint. 800-462-8782.
If enough people files complaint, GM will do something.

New here. Glad I’m not alone! 13,000 miles on our 2021 Encore GX. Squeals loud first thing in the morning reversing out as well as after just 10 minutes of sitting. Drives my wife insane she almost wants to trade it over a simple brake issue. Van Buick GMC even acknowledged the complaint though sent us home anyway. Been in the industry long enough to not be fooled by lazy service advisors. Feels like something simple - caliper pistons needing lubricant perhaps or something very simple among those lines. Please help.

All the disc brake pad replacements that I have done require the caliper slide pins be lubricated. I also like to put some anti squeal coating on the BACK of the pads. The calipers have to slide as the pads wear. Failure to lube everything causes the calipers to seize and the result is brake noise and uneven pad wear.
