excessive smoke and erratic idling on startup

I own a Kia Ceed Crdi which I purchased from new in 2010. After about 3 years I noticed that on cold start up, the car would produce a white exhaust and idle erratically for about a minute. Has anyone noticed the same problem? The local dealer tried virtually everything but to no avail. Basically they changed everything under the hood. A couple of weeks ago I was at the dealership and asked for a similar car to be started and to my amazement it did exactly the same. So the problem seems to be inherent with the model or at least a common problem. Has anyone else encountered the same problem? Does anyone know how to contact the Kia technical department or customer care in Europe? I am convinced that the local dealer has done everything possible and I am grateful for that. This is a pity because otherwise the car has proven to be very dependable .
