Check the plant carefully for pests such as aphids, scale bugs, whitefly, and mites:

Leaf spot diseases can also affect trumpet vine. If you are seeing distinct spots on the leaves, that's likely what it is:

If what you see looks more like the whole leaves are turning yellow or maroon, or they are turning colors between veins in a consistent pattern, it oculd be a nutrient deficiency as shown in this chart:
