Anyone notice a black soot like deposit in tailpipe of your vehicle? Mine, a 2014 with 2.4 GDI, 800 miles. Dealer service dept. said "normal" up to 10,000 miles. Said I could bring it in and tech would "check it out."

Only pipes I've seen sooted up are vehicles with carbs that were running overly rich or GM vehicles with the active engine (fuel) management system.

Thats a Direct Injected motor for ya! It's normal don't worry. They seem to run a little rich for some reason.
