prolonged squealing when going from reverse to forward

This problem has been ongoing since approximately (can't really remember exact)2013. When I back out of my parking spot in the condo where I live and then shift to drive and turn the wheels a mind boggling scream (sounds like steel on steel grinding) occurs and can last for 20-30 feet. This doesn't always happen , which is strange. I have taken it to the dealership many times with the complaint but am told each time that they have to hear this in order to try to fix it. As it doesn't always happen this is impossible for them to hear, They have kept it for 2-3 days and it won't make the noise (wouldn't you know it) so I am stuck putting up with this. The mechanics are sympathetic but say they can't do anything. This car, other than this complaint, is otherwise functioning well. I am very frustrated and wondering what to do.

Sometimes this squeal happens when I first start to back up and sometimes when I pull into a curb to park.I get quite a few questioning looks and am almost ashamed to go anywhere because this might happen. My neighbors ask what is wrong and I can't print my answer. Not too pleased with my Cruze.
