laybackman B2390...could be a bad gas cap but it has nothing to do with windshield washer fluid, trust me.

laybackman That vapor looks normal to me.

White Smoke from Exhaust on a 2018 JK?

Hey all,

First time posting here, I'm hopefully a soon to be JK owner, While looking over a 2018 Wrangler Unlimited Sport S at a dealership today, as soon we turned the engine on, what appears to be white smoke came from the exhaust.

Here's a short video of it:

It doesn't appear blue at all and I didn't pick up any particular odor.
It was somewhat cold out, around 40-50 degrees.
I checked a second Wrangler out only a few hours later to compare and there was no smoke whatsoever.

Here's the video:

So I thought I would see if the much more knowledgeable people here could shed some light on what the most probable cause of this issue is? And if something like this should dissuade me from buying it?
It does come with a warranty.

This might be unrelated but the only other issue was a ODB2 code B2390, Mist Switch Circuit Low. When checking under the hood, the windshield washer fluid reservoir cap was missing and hardly any fluid was left. It seems like it might have spilled or leaked out because lots of fluid was dripping from the front.

Hopefully this isn't the wrong place to post this. Thanks!
