Sounds like a blown headgasket, look at the engine oil, if it is a milky color or there is oil in the cooling system it needs work for sure, a simple block can verify the problem. You maybe right about trying to put you off until the warranty expires. Blowing any color of smoke is not right.

Keep a record of the repair attempts as a visit to an attorney may be in your future.
