So according to the internet - these cars hold 7.2 quarts of oil.
The other night my low oil level light came on two seconds from my house. I check the dipstick the next morning, and it’s just below the full line. Are the sensors really that sensitive? Does anyone know at what level the light comes on?
Thank you

I think it comes on when it needs 2 quarts

What engine do you have - the six? Something sounds amiss then if you got a low oil light and the oil was pretty much full. The official 7.18 quarts only gets you to the middle of the dipstick on a good day.

Yeah I’ve got a 2012 R-design. Strange indeed. Because the last time it happened the dipstick was actually low. This time that wasn’t the case! Lol
