2 Month old cat 1700 Miles, brakes squeak in reverse mode. Rotors have been cleaned twice, brakes still squeak LOUDLY.

Dealer claims moisture & oxidation, However, 1 day after cleaning, it reverts back to loud sqeaking.

It happens to me if the brakes have rusted due to morning dew...or the morning after I wash my car backing out of the garage in the morning, squealing all the way back. Its really cool, as people think you have a really nice car and then they end up feeling blood dripping from their ears as I come down the driveway. But seriously, The noise may be associated with the pads moving on their holder.
Depending upon the design, a small drop of copperslip between the pad and the slave piston can resolve this.

I would insist that they replace the brake pads and / or the rotors in the rear. They are able to warranty this. Insist that they do, tell them no more cleaning. 2011 vehicle you dropped what 30K on? Print this and show it to them. That cleaning stuff is BS to make you go away until you are out of warranty on the brakes. Insist..
