2011 5.7 L smoking at start up issue

Hello everyone,
I have seen posts on this issue but haven't seen if any of the members have had luck with the dealers acknowledging the issue or providing a solution.
My 2011 GC equipped with the 5.7 l engine constantly puffs blue smoke at startup, then clears up. This only happens when the Jeep is parked overnight and started in the morning.
I have taken it to the dealer several times with videos showing the smoking and, the silly answer they give is " a thin film of oil on the cylinder walls is being burned up" this is normal.
If any members are experiencing this same issue and got a resolution from Chrysler, please advise.
