Great advice (as usual) by Mark.
Additionally, I would demand that the entire engine compartment be cleaned and every spec of oil be cleaned.
This is a failure by the dealer to inspect the car before and a missing oil cap would stand out like a sore thumb.
But honestly, if it was me, I would get the car replaced with a new one with the oil cap on :).
Although it MAY not have caused any damage to engine, oil certainly got into electrical connections and could cause problems down the road no matter how good a job they do cleaning.
