I found a little puddle of water under my car, it was found right in the middle of the car. It appears to be condensation leaking from the exhaust as the car warms up after cold start. Is this normal?

When you saw the car in the morning, did it have it's rear tires crossed waiting to go to the bathroom?? lol :D

In all seriousness, I'd also say that it was either the AC or just condensation from the exhaust. Keep an eye out for it to verify where it's coming from.

After washing water will puddle in the middle of mine. It is neither condensation nor AC. Early in its life before receiving real brake pads and not the scouring nasty OEM ones the water was black with brake dust also.

It did not look like dirty water, it looks like it could be brake dust floating on the water.
I was guessing that it was some kind of drain for condensation half way down the exhaust.......

I put the car up on my buddies lift for an oil change. I see the source of the puddle. Both the left and right side exhaust pipes are leaking where they are clamped in the middle of the car. I don't hear an exhaust leak, but the condensation in the exhaust during cold start is certainly leaking..... Darn!!!
