Warranty Ending and Annoying Brake Issues / Noises

2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD
I have a 2016.5 CX-5 AWD GT I purchased in April 2017 and the warranty is about to expire. When I first got the car, I had it in the shop 3 or 4 times trying to fix a squeaking noise that would occur when rolling forward slowly (foot off the gas and off the brake). That never really got resolved, and sort of went away (it still happens every once in awhile, but it's not as bad as it once was). Other strange noises I've encountered with this car are
1) under hard braking a "rubbing" type noise. No pulsating to it like the ABS would do though
2) squeaky brakes ALL THE TIME which drives me nuts. Yes it does eventually go away after 15 minutes of stop and go driving, but I've driven many cars in my life and I've never had one with such squeaky brakes before and I know some will say this is "normal" when the brakes are cold, but there has to be some way of keeping this from happening.
3) and the latest issue....when going into reverse with my foot on the brake (especially after being in drive...like doing a quick turn around during a 3 point turn), I get a horrible creaking door / rusty spring type noise that's very loud (people nearby turn and look).

The car only has 22,500 miles on it.

I'm wondering if there are any TSBs out there for these issues or if anyone knows the solutions to these problems I can suggest to a mechanic. Before my warranty ends I'd like to try and get these resolved.

Thank you for your time.

Edit: Note, problem #1 only occurs maybe once every 3 months when slamming on the brakes unexpectantly. #2 is year-round (and I live in the Sacramento, CA area, so not especially cold). Problem #3 is about once or twice a week. I've put off getting these issues fixed because they are both so intermittent and would probably be hard for a mechanic to diagnose if it wasn't happening all the time.

I googled for you and found these:

I recall seeing another TSB recently for the dealer to apply anti-squeal tape to the back of the pads, but I can't find that now - maybe someone else remembers...
