Hi .
Its pretty obvious the service shop does not want to know.
If the oil drain plug is not torqued down with a new washer seal it will come loose and cause you the problem you just had.
So this happened in March and now we have October so they will not take responsibility for this.
You could take it to court but you probably not get anywhere and just end up wasting money and time, due to the time from the last oil change and to the date it happened .
Sad story and sorry this has happened to you , but to be sure ask your lawyer laws change .
Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me .
Kind regards Greg
