before you do anything, check to see if the pcv valve is clogged or bad. really unusual for a car that new with that few miles to burn oil. If the crankcase cant vent , the pressure will cause the oil to go where it shouldn't and your engine will burn it. worth a look anyway.

If an engine smokes and burns oil but only at idle it needs valve guide seals. But if it does that while driving then the piston rings are worn. HTH. -Jim
