Then, when she asked for the drain plug gasket they told her that she had to buy the whole drain plug with the gasket; they come as one piece.

WTF? In my 30 years of changing oil that's a new one on me.

Is that true?? If so, my opinion of my move from Jap back to NA is getting worse every day.
I'm confused by your reaction...

What the dealer said was correct. The drain plug and (rubber) gasket are not separate items. For a normal oil change, there is absolutely no reason to replace the gasket.

What's wrong with that???
