Rather than risk driving it any further, the dealer sent a flatbed. Now finishing the trip in a loaner - Not the way I envisioned this day ending and still can't believe it. Will be waiting for a call tomorrow to find out what happened. Sorry for the buzz kill tale, but sharing just in case any others have had a similiar experience. Will update the Class when I have news.
sorry to hear, certainly not a good first day. I hope the dealership treats you right. It is quite an unusual situation and it might have been related to the dealership not screwing on the oil cap tightly after they made the final checks. I can't imagine how that much oil would spontaneously explode under the hood of a new car.
