As new owners this has come as a surprise as all our previous cars have had this feature.

please fill out your location and drive info in Account Settings.

found this in the Canadian owners manual, where it's a standard feature on all models.

The problem with the Owner's Manual for a lot of these features is that often the feature can be found in the manual but also lists that it's only available on some models, but doesn't clarify which models it's actually on. This fluid warning light is a good example. It's included in the US manual but only for "some models". It's equally vague in both the printed manual and the online version. (I haven't checked the in-car electronic version yet).

I'm curious if the asterisk shown in the Canadian version also refers to similar wording?

yes it does, and I did notice that but I did check the specs put out by Mazda Canada first before I posted my comment to confirm it's on all Canadian models. This is from their spec sheet for the base GX version
(you should update your drive info with the specific model you have)

I'm not understanding why Mazda would not include this light in the US versions. I looked at the cluster yesterday, carefully, and did not see this light. I find it very odd.

I have this feature on my current vehicle, but the only time I actual activated the light on was when I first purchased it and deliberately ran down the washer fluid just to make sure it would work. However, since then I have never let my washer fluid go low enough that it would trigger the light as I usually check it on a regular basis and each time I would take it in for service, it would get filled up.
However, I did find out that the container did hold a complete 4L jug of washer fluid, not sure what the capacity is for the CX-30 (couldn't find it in the owners manual), but looks like quite a size based on this cut-away shot. I did find that it would appear that this item has a separate fuse (F29 - 15A) in the engine fuse compartment, so that could be a way of checking to see if you have this feature, short of emptying the container. :D

Seems odd that UK versions don't have it. You'd think it would make more sense to just have it enabled across the range if some countries have to have it. Its hardly a sexy feature!

It is not an idiot light. A message comes on the center display and says low washer fluid. Run it dry... and then let us know if the UK has it like the US does.

it doesn't. RHD models (uk/IE) don't have it for sure. At least mine doesn't and I've run it dry

Hi,

The PDF manual I downloaded says the CX-30 does have this feature*
*Some models.

Mine is the top spec GT Sport Tech, so surely this should have it if any do.
It ran dry yesterday though, without any warning at all. I’d deliberately not been checking it, just to see if any warning did come up.

There is a dipstick under the filler cap though, so maybe that’s all we get in the UK

I got the low level warning the other day, but it was not the icon. It was in the middle of the speedometer on the info screen.

Fuse F29 is the Windscreen Washer fuse in my book, there’s no fuse specific to the fluid level indication.
I’m certainly not going to take the wing off just to see if there is actually a level sensor fitted. The dipstick is more than I’ve had on any of my previous cars.
It’s going in for its 1st service next month. I’ll query it with them then.
