I have a 2011 Se with 63000 miles on it, when I pulled on to my road I heard a slight whine form the engine. When I pulled into the driveway I turned the car off and popped the hood to check the oil and see if there was any obviously wrong. Well smoke was pouring out of the alternator, I made sure everything was turn off and ended up disconnecting the battery after 20 minutes it finally stopped smoking (luckily no flames). I called the dealership and had it towed in, they will look at it tomorrow and see if it will be covered under the extended warranty. Has anyone else had this problem ??

I have not heard of anyone having that issue in 4+ years. Glad the dealer took care of you.
