Too much oil?

Hey guys, my dad took my 2010 v6 for an oil change(without telling me) and the guy dumped 6.5 liters in the engine, should i be worried?

I would say check the dipstick while the car is on a level surface and the engine is off. If it's over the full mark, don't start it until the proper oil level has been established.

6.5 liters is almost 7 quarts.

Yeah the dipstick shows like 1 cm extra oil, is there anyway i can siphon or suck the extra oil? I am currently in the village house and i don’t have my jacks.

Being 1 quart over won't hurt. The problem is when there is too much oil and
the crankpin journals are bashing into it when the crank is spinning.

IF you can get a tube down the dip-stick hole, you can pneumatically pump it out.
Other than that, well, then the messy solution; pull the drain plug, then put it back
in after you got about a quart out of it.
