The exhaust was producing quite a thick white product at the beginning of journeys. There was also a weird smell inside the car intermittently, the A/C and heating was off, and it wasn't really a burning smell.

The shaking just started happening today, but I have noticed a few things the last couple of days, such as heavy steering and slow acceleration, but not really too much to be initially concerned with.

It's covered by the dealer, so I will see them, but just wondered if anybody had any ideas?
have a search on the forum for ignition coils and see if any of the symptoms are the same as yours.
