Sqeak from steering wheel

I hear a bit of a squeak when I turn my wheel. At first I just thought it was new plastic and would wear in, but it seems to actually be getting a bit worse. I had a similar problem with a PT Cruiser I owned years ago and it turned out to be some sort of hydraulic hose popping lose and rubbing on something, is this something I should worry about? If it's just the noise and nothing serious I'll probably just ignore it. But if it's some problem with the steering itself I should probably make an appointment with SC.

Mine had the same issue day 1 with 4 miles on the odometer. Schedule service and they’ll lubricate the steering mechanism. It’s a fairly common issue. They fixed mine in just a few minutes. It was especially annoying to me when autoparking. Took the shine off that awesomeness for sure.
