There is an entire post with some good info on this topic: Bottom line, no drama here - just keep an eye on it. You just don't have enough miles to say anything yet. Your manual will tell you the same. Also, do you know for a fact (you checked it as soon as it was changed) what your starting oil level was at the 5K oil change? Do you know which oil was used?

I was going to say the same thing. Dealer may have under filled to begin with. If you didn't check after the change you can't tell. Either way I'd go to the dealer and tell them you are low, make them check for leaks and top it off.

I assumed they would have checked it when they changed it. I will check next time.

Couldn’t agree more Karst, especially with the Atlas. After all the varied reports on how much oil is required for a proper fill it’s still a mystery to me.

just keep in mind oil changes are done by cheapest labor at the dealer. dealer filled oil without draining on my buick enclave and engine never felt same afterward. this is one of the reason i do my own oil change.
