My dealer always tops me off for free and will give me any remaining oil in the bottle for free. I don't even deal with a SA. The valet guys do it for me.

Topping off is up to the dealer, but if the oil light comes on, I think it would be pretty hard for the dealer to not top it off then.

And the newer engines seem to burn a lot more oil than the 2008's.
