Default oil spill

help! last week i took my year old 2014 prius 2 in for scheduled maintenance- which included oil change. on my way home, i noticed i was "smoking". i pulled over to be sure i wasn't on fire & discovered i was loosing oil. i turned around & drove back to the dealership. i was ~20 miles in the country. the yellow exclamation point and "low oil pressure" kept beeping & flashing until towards the end they came on & stayed on. i limped to the dealership with hybred alert on & they had to admit that the plug was cross threaded. after changing the oil pan & plug & felt door pad, they are trying to tell me that this car is totally fine and as good as new. i drive over 450miles each week for work & at least twice a year drive 1000 miles one way without stopping- a 16 hour trip by myself. i don't trust this car anymore.... would you?
