have you ever noticed?

that our cars have a huuuuge washer reservoir? lol. I've had mine about 4 months, just filled it up the first time today and i kept pouring, and pouring, and pouring... used almost a whole gallon I think. Maybe my old car just had a small reservoir but damn! i started freaking out, looked underneath for a leak or something :). OH and also, on a side note, i dunno why everyone ******* aobut the cupholders, I get Wendy's BIGGIE cups in there, as well as burger king, although sometimes BK's like to bring the cup liner with them

Yeah the washer fluid compares to a 5 gallon bucket lol. Bk cups tend to steal my cup holder as well but medium and also super or biggier cups with the small bottoms work really well :)

was wondering that too... manual says: "Check the washer fluid every time you stop for fuel. IF fluid is low, add enough fluid to fill the reservoir". course it also says CAUTION do not add coolant to the windshield fluid reservoir, you may impair visibility". and here I was adding coolant!
