Thank you for your question! There is not a dipstick on this particular vehicle to check the engine oil level. There is a sensor that is built into the oil pan that measures the oil level and also the condition of the oil. This sensor also is constantly monitoring oil level and condition and will bring up a message on the display if the oil level is low. To check this yourself: turn the key to position 1 (the SRS light illuminates) and make sure the cluster is displaying the MPH or Temp in the main display (Basic Display) and press the Trip Reset button three times quickly. The I/C will beep and will give you a reading in quarts. Please remember the only way I can get graded on my services is if you rate me.
