I was in a road trip driving through slush using tons of washer fluid. I then ran out. I just assumed wth all the other warnings that my 2014 would let me know when the washer fluid was low. Does it?

Nope, no washer fluid level warning from '13 to '15. My Leaf didn't have one either, but it did have a clever clear hose attached to the reservoir lid with a tiny hole in the top of the lid. Checking procedure was to put your finger over the little hole and remove the lid and pulling the attached tube out with it. Level of fluid is equal to amount of fluid in the tube. So, I did this to my Volt, but with a loose tube. See pic.

Interesting. I've never seen a low solvent warning on any of my vehicles. I keep them topped off year round.

Neat idea - sometimes the simplest ones are the best.

Looking at the thumbnail pic with you standing there it looks like a catheter sticking out of your jeans.

yeah the 2013 and 2014 and 15 had a piece of still added to help with crashs so the tank is so much smaller for it

PS it did not help on crash testing so i left it out as the trade off where harder in the crash test

in pic look at part 76 ... part 79 80 is what they added

it was to help on the offset crashs
