After driving and running my A/C I had what I think is condensation dripping on my exhaust. Has anyone else had this happen?

As Tom0021 said, this is normal. Very disconcerting at the beginning, especially if this is your first Corvette. Just air conditioning working, taking the water vapor out of your cabin air, dripping it down onto your exhaust. Yes, they could have and should have figured out a way to let it drop onto the ground without hitting the exhaust.

I thought it was normal, but it is a rather clunky design to have it drip on the exhaust. Thanks for the responses!

We should make a list of things that seem to be a problem but are normal. If sales guys would even just include the list with the delivery papers we could cut down the consternation that we see here all the time. I'll start:

Tires chatter /clunk on full lock slow turns
Water drips from car after shutoff
The motor makes clicking noises when running (direct injectors)
The motor will turn a few revs before lighting up on start ( engine pressurizing fuel system)

What else we got?

Good idea Glen. Oil may read different levels on either side of dipstick. Rotate it once before reading.

I have not heard that exact topic before, Peterwelch. Can you please expound with more details of exactly what you did, what you observed, and how you remedied this?

I've had the same observation. One side of the dipstick shows just above the bottom hashmark while the other side shows near the top hashmark. Seems kind of weird. So far, I'm just assuming everything is OK as long as oil is showing above the low mark.

Yeah I heard this for the first time the other day and freaked out because I thought something was leaking. Till I found out it was just the AC dripping.

Love this forum - although the post is nearly 2 years old, I had this happen on my 2016 last week (and I didn't think the AC was on; the passenger side was set to 72F on a 80F night). First time to hear the dripping on the exhaust. As a first time Corvette owner, it was definitely alarming. Nice to know it's 'normal'.

This is pretty common and not unique to corvettes. My last 2 jeeps did this as well.

And yes, this forum is great.
