Unless the exhaust is smoking blue / white. This is normal carbon that mixes with water vapor.

If the exhaust is blue / white then it could be burning oil.

Does the exhaust smell oily when the engine is running?

Can you take a picture of the tail pipe (close up) and post the picture here?

2.0L engine? If you are not using synthetic engine oil, switching to synthetic can reduce oil burning!
