Yes I am getting that message right now. I started an oil consumption test at a dealer because I think my car is using too much oil. After starting that, the next time I used the car's system to measure oil level I saw the REDUCE OIL LEVEL. I told the dealer and they said that it won't hurt anything and is much less serious than running the car with too little oil. Furthermore, to perform the OCT according to the MB standards, the car's dipstick has to be at the FULL mark. When the car is cold, I get an Oil Level O.K. but when it is warm I get the REDUCE one. I think the warm oil has expanded and therefore gives me the error message. If you are not doing what I am doing, I would siphon off some of your oil.
