I came here and registered for the site specifically to log a "same here".
Same symptom: When cold and shifting into drive, there's a pretty loud squeak the first time I do it. It doesn't seem to occur after that until it's been sitting for hours. My wife never noticed it from inside the car, but I hear it every morning from the garage when I'm sitting at the breakfast table and she leaves for work. I finally got to experience it from inside the car this week and it was pretty subtle. I haven't yet pinpointed if it has any relation to the outside air temp yet but it has been colder here than normal (like 50F or less). Based on the number of complaints here, it seems like there should be a TSB for it.
