Cracked Exhaust!

642 28
My 2021 Giulietta Veloce final edition somehow has a large crack in the exhaust pipe! How could this have happened?

Stranger still, I believe the crack was there from when the car was new as there has been no change in exhaust noise. The car has also always smelled of exhaust in startup (which I assumed was normal and just turned recirculate on). I also noticed heat coming from under the car after driving but never connected the dots.

Perhaps a question for the dealer before the Warranty runs out.

A tear in that position would suggest a tension force only on the underside. That would suggest either the outer end of the system has been forced upwards or the centre pulled down. Neither scenario suggests accidental damage unless you have driven on some very rough roads. I imagine that is unlikely given the general condition of the underside which looks immaculate for a two year old car.
