Hello,

Just purchased my Insight EX on friday night. Apparently, I ran out of windshield washer fluid today but received no warning from the Insight. I remember reading in the manual that the dash should give a "low washer fluid warning". Anyone experience this yet?

Thanks,

Andres

...as if low washer fluid warning is only needed in Canada? Would've been nice if Honda made this simple indicator standard on US/CA models.
That idea of buying the Insight in Canada isn't such a bad idea if it wasn't for the fact I would be missing out on the extended emissions warranty and having to deal with customs. Getting a MPH digital speedometer and now a washer fluid sensor. :wink: Makes you wonder if the Mexican Insight has something our American Insight doesn't have.

I have to agree. This falls in the same weirdness area as kph digital in us only and MPH digital in Canada.

Is it just the sensor missing? Would it be plug and play? I found this Best Sensor - Windshield Washer Level for Honda Cars, Trucks & SUVs -
To replicate what Canadian Insights have, I think it needs both sensor plus electrical connection to trigger alert/message.

I can't find associated part numbers (#13), but it looks like Canadian models get a bigger reservoir (with sensor built-in?) versus US models (#12). It makes me think more fluid volume is required than the US (or Mexico?) models have, for the sensor to work...?

JFC, I found this out today while driving on the highway in a snowstorm. I'm lucky I made it out alive. The salt was piling up on my windshield super fast. I was driving 95% blind by the time I made it off the exit. What the F***, Honda?!

I've never had this happen before in my 13 years and several hundred K miles of driving. I bought my 2022 EX in late September, so the fluid only lasted 5 months. I'm going to have to start religiously filling it before every snowstorm, because next time I might be further from the exit.
