I could not believe the engine has no dipstick?? I always change the oil myself after the warranty period runs out and now it looks like I'm going to the dealer forever to get the oil changed!! Not happy with this option!!!

Most newer car's don't have a dipstick . You can check the oil level from the console after the engine has warmed up. Just get the correct amount of oil and you should be good.

search the forums, there is a long long thread about this and someone has made a prototype dipstick for the XC60.

Lots of info in that thread including how the e-dipstick works.

Planned dealer dependence. There are plenty of vehicles still available with dipsticks, but many of the luxury manufacturers omit them so they can omit any warranty coverage if you run into issues and didn't do all of your service at the dealership.
