Yes, but is it leaking? The car is only 2 years old! When was the last oil change done? I do oil changes every 3 months or 3,000 miles on my daily driver. I suggest you do the same. If it's leaking oil it should be covered by new car warranty unless you have high mileage. HTH. -Jim


When an oil light comes on it has been my experience that damage has already been done. Adding oil should turn out the light but have it checked out thoroughly you may have damaged the bearings.
