Get it on both our '08s. In our case I know the belts have just stretched and need to be tightened. Showed up with the cooler weather here, Cold rubber belts don't have the same grip on the pulley as a warm belt, Rubber gets hard.

Check the tension.

Funny story:

Girl friend many many many moons ago fixed a squeeky belt tension by spraying WB40 over the entire front of the engine. Got rid of the squeek...the belts were not moving while the pulleys were spinning like crazy.
