Your invoice/receipt from the dealer should show exactly what was used, e.g. diff fluid, parts, oil, etc. If you did not get that, ask for it, it'll confirm all of your fears, doubts, suspicions.

As to the oil level, how are you checking it? Per the manual's instructions? E.g., warm engine, idle, shut off, wait 1 or 2 min., pull dipstick? Or are you checking when cold? If cold, it will read over b/c the oil will drain. (Oh, and 7 ltrs is about right)

Hope that helps.
