For the same reason a Garage repair guy won't spray lithium grease on your rollers, you shouldn't on your door hinges. It causes a build up of debris, and will actually make your creak squeek squeal worse. The correct product is key to solving your issues. The dealer will probably spray it with wd-40 and send you home, then it will start squeeking again in a day or two.
Not sure who this was directed to, but....
The link I posted is for garage door hinges AND the rollers. My Apple Door's guy uses the exact same thing on our annual garage door inspections. In fact, he is the one who suggested after being at the house and hearing me open the door to my two month old Nissan Xterra.
It worked for me.... on two vehicles!
For well less than ten bucks a can, it's well worth a shot.
FYI: The crew who services all of our 20-plus firehouse bay doors every six months, use the exact same product.
