Exhaust pipe leaks


New member
Has anyone else experienced exhaust pipe leaks (not muffler weep holes)? Three distinct cracks in exhaust pipe joints under vicinity of driver's seat. I usually remotely start the vehicle in my garage, and now there are three distinct, dry spots of black soot on the garage floor -- right under the cracks in the pipes.
Took pictures of the spots on the floor and showed to the dealer's service rep. They put the car up on a lift, and there were three clearly visible black areas at the pipe joints, which corresponded to the areas on the garage floor. Dealer took photos of the pipes while car was on the lift. Dealer said could not be repaired. Unacceptable! Waiting for a solution. ~~ Farfelue.
