5/25/19 UPDATE: with the little car 50 miles away,my daughter called and said that the car is squealing on start up again with the new belts. I'm hoping they come here for Memorial day and bring the car so I can recheck the various belt tensions and hoping that the new belts are just "stretching in" and just need adjustment.
SAD to think that most cars from 09 use auto belt tensioner with a single serpentine belt...Not so with this little car!

Well they din't come out for the holiday, but the wife and I were "in the area" on the 26th. So we stopped in for a SHORT visit and I took a quick look at the belts, all is fine, I found she was leaving the A/C control on so that at start up was engaging the compressor.I think this may be a bit too much "load" at start and shut that feature off and re tried starting before we left...no squeal!
Told daughter to try it for a while like that...oh the look of "inconvenience" she gave but said she'd do that..no calls of squealing complaints yet! Due to our area, A/C is NOT a high demand use feature, but by the squeal symptom, could she be having some developing A/C trouble? Once running and A/C turned on the A/C works fine(nice and cold)!
