Low Windshield Washer Fluid Warning System

Has anyone gotten the "Low Windshield Wash" message on their DIC? I have the SLT-2 loaded and my windshield wash runs out without any warning on the dash. I looked in the manual and it says there should be one. I called the dealer and they said they didn't think the Terrain had that warning light. Seems pretty strange for a 45k vehicle not to tell you when you are running low on windshield wash?

Cheers

Wow - $45K. Hope it washes and waxes the whole car automatically.

From the manual (hyperlink posted on this forum somewhere)

Re: Messages Displayed on DIC

Washer Fluid Messages
Washer Fluid Low Add Fluid
This message will be displayed
when the washer fluid level is low.
For information on filling the washer

I'm also curious about this. Our Terrain has also run out of washer fluid without so much as a peep, even though it is theoretically supposed to (like noncon stated).

There doesn't seem to be an indicator lamp for low washer fluid when the key is in the "ON" position with the vehicle not running.
Guess we better keep her topped up with a spare gallon in the back!

I wonder if this is a CANADA only message. The Acura I drive is set up with a low fluid icon too but it's only connected/wired up on the Canadian models.

I doubt it, since our Terrain is a CND model.

x2, had same exact thing on my TSX. Only worked on the Canadian models.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Picked up some washer fluid today.
Told the wife to let it run dry, conditions permitting, before refilling, and to watch for any low washer fluid indicator(s).
Going to the Dealer to pick up cargo organizer tomorrow or Wednesday, so will ask there as well.
