The Focus is the first car I've ever driven with a warning for low or no fluid. I live in northern Alberta now. Plenty of and and salt on the high ways. And I lived and drove in Newfoundland for 5 years before that. I think they came up with the idea of putting salt on the road in Newfoundland, if not perfected it. It's not a big deal to throw a jug of wash fluid in the trunk and if you run out pull over and top up. That's what I always did.
That being said. A new or pretty new car should work right. If it's something as simple as the indicator isn't working correctly bring it to the dealership and tell them to fix the damn thing. Simple as that.
