I am trying to find out if your car has a low oil safety switch, if it dose, this is what has stopped the car from starting, this is a safety device that will prevent any damage being dome, the margin allowed for low oil will be very generous, that is when the safety switch cuts in there is still plenty of oil for engine protection but it dose need topping up, I will advise if this is the case ASAP, I am sure that there will be no long term problems with the engine, as for the mechanic that has been doing this, I would be asking him why? There is plenty of information out there on oil quantities, and surly after a service they should be checking the level to ensure it is correct, but obviously not in this case. What to do? Well firstly don't go back, there is no point in taking it further if on damage through neglect has occurred, just move on and find a mechanic that will care for you and your car.
