Sometimes when I'm sitting in traffic with the car idled, smoke comes from the exhaust.

How much smoke? Is the smoke excessive? Is it smelly?

It get more excessive the longer I sit in traffic, but clears immediately once I get on the open road. I've noticed no smell and it doesn't happen each time.

Smoke from the exhaust could indicate several things and I would need to view the entire history of the car to render a meaningful response. It might be the crankcase vent valves require replacement, there is a bulletin on your car for their replacement, has this been completed?

No. The replacement has not been done. How do I get info about the recall.
