Purchased this vehicle last month (2.0 turbo) with 52k on it and now has 56k. I’m scheduled to get an oil change Saturday but recently I just noticed when I turn to the right there’s a plume of white smoke behind the car then clears up quickly, or I noticed when reving it there’s also a little smoke. Car gets driven about 90 miles a day on the highway. Any help? I did recently have to add 2 quarts of oil

While smoke is moisture.
Is the coolant at the proper level when cold?
Did you check the oil level when you purchased the car?

I purchased the car from a private dealer, oil looked fine when I bought it. They did an oil change on it. I’ll have to check the coolant later. I was more concerned thinking the rings are going bad with having to add oil already and the smoke. I really don’t see it smoke unless I take a turn a little quickbut I can’t really feel a loss in power.

Should’ve clarified I bought the car March 23rd seems to be more of a grey/white smoke and since I’ve had to put 2 quarts of oil in already I’m thinking it’s the piston rings…. Already…
