I suspect that is what happened and they forgot to replace the cap. move along folks, nothing to see here.....LOL. To the OP, glad they are getting it taken care of.
I have had 2 dealership performed oil changes, from 2 different dealerships and they do not fill it to the full mark. It has both times been in the middle of the 2 dots on the dipstick. I asked the last dealership about this and they said it was properly filled. When looking in the owners manual it also notes that if there is oil between the 2 dots to NOT ADD OIL.
