Mechanic performing the refill is the shop foreman. He said he would address the problem as it should have been checked after oil change and obviously was not. I am sure most people do not check the level after an oil change but we being enthusiast are wired differently than most.

One more thing, when I purchased two spare oil filters for future oil changes, the parts guy, without knowing, tried to sell me oil filters for a 2012 2.5. I informed him that the part number for the oil filter for the 2013 2.5 ends in 15A not 12A.
WTF, more dumbing down of America?
Too much television and internet....
