Suspect the engine is frozen up due to lack of lubricant. If mechanic caused the oil to vacate, he's responsible for a replacement engine. Did you get any warning lights? If so, did you do anything about them? These are questions the mechanic will ask. There is no doubt that lack of oil caused this; your car is only 3 years old.

exact same problem with my 2015 optima. Stopped running at 75 HMP on the Highway! It was dark, and I couldn't check the oil, just had it changed by Pep Boys less than a week ago. All power is on the car, along with every warning indicator light (ALL OF THEM) just just stopped. AAA came out to tow me in the middle of nowhere, car is back at Pep Boys and they are telling me , it's the STARTER! I do not think so. What in the world should I do
