Does this car have an engine oil drain plug? 2013 is the first year for this new engine, and I have been unable to find a drain plug for the engine oil.
I have removed the plastic panel under the engine, and if there is a drain plug there for the engine oil I haven't been able to spot it.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

There is no engine oil drain plug on this engine, the oil must be removed with a fluid evacuator like the Mityvac model MV7400 that uses a small hose inserted into the dipstick tube and creates a vacuum by using a hand pump to draw the oil out of the pan.

Here is a video showing how to change the oil and filter:
