Even if you have to buy it, it's not that expensive. Only $10 a quart.
What dealers? It would be helpful if everyone posted what each dealer said and if you bought the car from them.

I'd be pissed if I bought the car there and they don't top it off. If should be covered if the car is telling you it needs oil.
It's basically up to the dealers and with the slow economy, many are not doing it.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
