Lets do this by typing. The car has 17,961 miles on it and is due for an oil change at 18,800 miles I don't know when the last oil change was. But I had to add oil once before and the dealer said everything was ok. but that I should check the oil every time I did a fill up.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 2 years ago.
If the car is leaving a puddle of oil, I suggest having it towed to the dealer. It's leaking and that is not normal by any means, especially with so few miles. The tow and the work needed should be covered under your warranty and not cost you a dime. If they think it's normal or are telling you it's normal you need to locate a new dealer. I was curious about the last oil change because if it had only been a few days then I could say maybe there was an issue with the oil filter or the drain plug gasket, but no, this needs to go back and be repaired at their expense properly.
Sorry I didn't get your response sooner and I can't do the phone calls because of a hearing disability.
Please, let me know if there is any more I can do at this end to help.
