Interesting point. I ran out the other day. No warning either. Never even thought about the fact it should have an indicator. I'll have to pay more attention next time.

I was about to post on that subject... just called the dealer and the tech there told me that there is no sensors... but told him that it says in the manual that there is a message that exist for that warning... then says that depends on the model... told him that mine was a SEL... then told me to take an appointment... i will probably later to make sure about this... and what about the oil change warning it is not working?
The oil change maintenance minder light doesn't come on after 10,000 miles. An updated PCM/TCM fixes it, though. I've had low washer fluid where I noticed it wasn't spraying my full windshield. I refilled it at that point, so I guess I won't know until next time.

Running orange Rain-X fluid. Never get a chance to see light come on since I top it off when I check oil in my garage every few weeks.

Mine ran out with no notice. On the coldest, slushiest, saltiest tire spray morning this year. Suuuuucked.

That's pretty unlucky considering we've had what, two days like that all winter?

Yeah i know but it is very annoying when you live in a winter country.... and you start your car in the morning with no messages that the fluid is low... then get on the road assuming you have enough for your day and then runs out on the highway!
