I doubt you have a problem - I see water come out of tailpipes all the time.<br>Not that _that_ means it's OK - I also lots of people running around with<br>under- inflated tires....<br><br>but I do think it's perfectly OK<br><br>Brandon<br><br<br>

Drops of water from the tail pipe is normal for any vehicle- new or old.
Exhaust gas contains water vapor.  The vapor condenses on the inside of the exhaust pipes, and can often be seen dripping from the tail pipe.  Once the temperature of the exhaust pipes increases as the car is brought to normal operating temperature, condensation decreases to zero.
People who frequently drive their vehicle short distances experience premature exhaust system rust-through, starting from the rear of the exhaust system.  This is due to the fact that the rear of the system takes longest to reach higher temperatures.  When the car is driven short distance and parked, the water remains in the colder part of the system- the rear- and causes rusting from the inside out.
