Compression test might be fine, because the engine is not under any load to speak of and the 'leak' doesn't exist. Driving around town for weeks can be fine too. Get it on the hiway, or tow, the engine is put under more load, the leak opens up, exhaust gases push into the coolant and force the coolant out into the overflow bottle. Spews it over the engine if bad enough. Temp gauge rises.
Been there, done that. 97 OB.

I had the car towed back to the place that did the work.. firstname.lastname@example.org
Is this an automatic? Please tell us all that they flatbacked it or put it on dollies. If they 'towed it', you're now also out an AWD system! ANd, if you think you're in a fight with a dealer, wait 'til you have to tangle with a tow company!

And as MTsmiths says: How was the car towed?
