dead right it is ! the cover has not been resecured properly after changing oil +filter if garage says it waslike this on service why not tell you ?? either way take it back and complain this cover is secured by screws and no excuse for not fitting securely

yes that is very possable because that cover would have to be removed for the oil change. the beast cure would be to get a few cable ties or zip ties to tie it back up

Let them see the car.
Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.
It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.
You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak

Make sure you do have any leaks from the drain plug or the base of the oil filter etc. Does your exhaust look blue when you accelerate? The car is relatively new and it should not be burning oil, either old or new. Was the oil changed with the recommended type?

assuming car is leaking oil not burning it [blue smoke] look under car and check where oil is coming from if done at a shop should have brought back so correction could be made --if coming from filter area possible wrong filter -cross threaded -loose -or missing/doubled gasket=if coming from pan area drain bolt same -loose -cross threaded-missing gasket-
