All I can say is that totally sucks. Happened to me once, though. Took my '07 Jeep to the dealership for an oil change and they over filled it. I ended up draining almost a half quart out of it at home but that wasn't until after there was oil everywhere so I understand your aggravation! On that Jeep, though, if it was over full, the dipstick was designed to pop up in order to avoid blowing a seal. From then on, I have always checked my oil before I leave. Sure hope they fix it for you without question and that there's no damage!

Wait a minute, I don't get what you're saying....

Are you saying after losing all that oil in your driveway, you measured what was left in the motor and STILL it was a litre more than recommended OR you measured it after picking it up from the DS and it was a liter [34 US oz.] more than recommended -fill max line]?

That could be really bad as it can cause a seal to blow. which may be where it is leaking from.

BTW what dealear ship so I know not to go there for an oil change.

When will dealerships get up to speed and start opening on sundays. hell even the banks are opening on sundays. then they wonder why auto manufactors needed to get hauled out of trouble. know one has time to go car shopping m-f 9-6
Open on a Sunday!? I go to church Sunday morning and there is no way in hell I am going to work a Sunday. You should work 7 days a week at your work 9-5 and see if you want to be open Sunday.

not taking up for a complete screw up as we can see, but remember 1 drop of oil can spread out to look like a puddle.

That being said, it is still unaccecptable. Overfilled oil can blow the rear seal.
Brightside is it could be nothing but spilt oil.....worse case is the retard overfilled it and blew a seal, but even then the brightside is you get a new motor if you blow the engine driving back to the dealership.

kind of a win/win, but still something you shouldnt have to deal with.

Well that's what I was thinking. Maybe take it to the track and blow it sky high haha. But I know it can't be spilt oil cause as I said its been a few weeks and its still dripping. And it can't be a little drip because its dripping from like 5-6 spots
