Hi. The smoke is coming out the exhaust in the rear? OR are you seeing smoke from around the engine area in the front?

Both
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

I would suspect an oil leak. The front oil pump is common to leak oil around the front crank pulley.

If the oil gets on the exhaust it will smoke.

Do you think I should buy it or not
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

I personally would not unless you know it has a good maintenance history, because those are not the most reliable engines.
