WHEN IN LOW GEAR OR BACKING UP THERE IS A LOUD SQUEELING NOISE. IT IS ONLY PRESENT AT LOW GEAR, ONCE IN THIRD IT IS GONE.

2009 Hyundai Tuscon • 70,000 miles

A friend said it sounds like the wrong size pad for the steering wheel? Searching the internet it sounds more like brakes, even though the squeel is there when my foot is not on the brakes?
I purchase the vehicle in August and noticed the squeel then but only when I was going in reverse. I was hopeful it would disappear. Not the case, currently the squeel is there when I start up the vehicle in the morning and when I am in 1st or 2nd gear.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Front or back? How fast do you have to go to make it squeal?
