IF the dealer is not willing to take care of the problem, then you need to seek out a shop that is willing to.
I mis-read, I thought the rears were also done.
Upfront, I have not dealt with this car regarding brakes. However, there are some systems that are inherent due to design such as the neon. Since you did go a long time without noise I would be thinking that possibly the pad wore into the rotor, the edge may cause a vibration that has been cut into it. The original flat against flat surface is no longer there. Also the components have been compromised from usage.
IF it were mine, I would first attempt to pull out the pads and service them with a high quality grease on all the contact points and make sure everything is moving as it should to see how that works.
IF this fails, I would replace them with the Napa parts I mentioned earlier. I have yet to have a noise from them....granted there is always a first time. Hardware may be weak, if so they should be replaced.
