You should be OK as long as the oil level is ok, unless its leaking like 1qt every night.

at 2,000 miles it shows on the add mark then 3 quarts to put it back up, the dealers changed the oil and by the time i got home i let it set and then checked it and it was full then next morning i checked it and it read the 2nd line under full and a big puddle under the car. i know the dealers fill it up to much and i figured it just let the extra out. what do you think? does this make since?

You can run it low and that does help in some cases....But! Keep a close eye on it. The oil leak does sound pretty severe. Give it some time and see how it does running it a little low..
