Default 09 Honda Fit has no low washer fluid indicator

Wow, just realized there is no indicator. All the while thought mine
was broken.

User Manual says "Canadian models only".

WTF? Apparently Honda Engineers have never driven highways through a
LONG Colorado winter.

US vehicles often get much smaller washer fluid reservoirs as well, which
must make north-easters really happy.

Well sure, but you wouldn't believe how fast a 2.5qt reservoir will empty
during a long winter's drive. The Canadian-market gallon reservoir lasts
much longer.

I cover over 20,000 miles a year. There have been winter days where I've
completely used up an entire gallon and had to add most of another one.
It's no fun at all to run out of fluid and be miles between exits with the
sloppiest highway you can imagine in front of you.

that's ALWAYS been the case with American Honda and their choices for
features like this.
