So i know all exhaust has condesation, and i know we have small holes in the mufflers for it to escape, or it just runs out the tail pipe. However my 12 model has a LOT. I mean dive it anyplace park it, come back out and there are two puddles, one under each muffler. The more ive watched this its leaving like a little stream of water. It is water becuase i bent down and felt it and smelled it etc in the garage..

At first i thought maybe water got in there washing the car and it will go away, but its been like a month now and water still coming out the those weep? holes in the mufflers.

Ill try to take some photos so can see what im talking about

Where do you live, city wise, also how long are the trips before you park?
If I take short trip I see some water, if I drive 20 miles nothing

Short trip will be the worse or car wash. Don't think I would worry about car wash. Last night it got down to 18* in manassas drove 20 miles to work no water. I would keep an eye on it so if it gets worse have the dealer check on it, still under warranty.

yea im not worried about it just seem od that there is that much... wonder if it has to do with the direct injection. I guess it has always done it now that i think back, in the summer time it steams, lol.. looks like a steam engine when you are parked and its running.

It is under warranty, and shows no signs of any issues, i would think by now it would have broken something if wasnt suppse to be doing it. I do need to get that clicking checked out on the brakes at next oil change.. other than that its a good car just like the others ive had.
