Anyone else seen this "smoke" come out from the exhaust during cooler climates? I never thought exhaust pipes were supposed to emit smoky fumes..this car is broken. Something is on fire inside this car...it's smoking.

Looks like condensation (water vapor) to me. Your windows are fogged up so it was probably just humid and perfectly normal.

Mine does this too. Huge plume when I first start. Then it smokes lightly during my entire drive...never goes away.

It looks like water vapor to me. My car and in your video. Although I have no idea why my car would still be emitting vapor at a high rate even though it's been running for 30+ minutes. Maybe someone more technical could explain this to me...

Same reason why on one cold day when you breath out it forms a little bit of condensation vapor vs another cold day you might get a lot of condensation vapor. It all depends on the air temperature and relative humidity of the exhaust air mixing with the ambient air. Your car breaths air which contains water vapor and it's exiting out your exhaust pipe 100% of the time it's running.

take it to the dealer and tell them smoke is coming out of your exhaust. You're under warranty, use it.

You do realise your car is fitted with an internal combustion engine (its the big metal thing under the hood that you are never ever to touch)

petrol + air -------> carbon dioxide + water+ energy in the form of heat and light

as the gasses expand...........................
