Cracked Exhaust!

640 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.

Possibly a transporter driver putting the ratchet straps in the wrong place. We used to have a similar thing on 96 MY Rover 400’s. They would tie the car down and occasionally go across a rear suspension link causing it to bend and throw the rear wheel alignment out.

In all honesty I can’t see it clearly enough. Yes on first glance it looks like one but now I’m not so sure. Can you try to put a small screwdriver into it and take another pic?
