Oil level rises after shutoff

2013 glk 350 (gasolene) 37000 miles just purchased. After shutting off the motor, in 5 minutes it shows to add oil, it's at the bottom range. 30 minutes later it shows 3/4 full. And hour later it shows over full. Records show it had 3 oil changes before I purchased it. Vehicle is certified used MB, great condition. What is causing this ? What's the fix?

No fix needed. Do not put more oil in until the car has sat for at least an hour or so. That is the TRUE oil level per the stick. When the engine runs, the oil is sent all over the motor, and it takes a while for it to travel all the way back to the pan.
