Check washing fluid

Actually I never seen such message in cluster before so really surprised. I usually lease cars for 3 years and never deal with washing fluids. So hopefully there is no leakage in the system. Can somebody suggest a good washing fluid for E class beside of just get some water from tub and add some soap? We do not have temperature below 32 here in California so no risk to get liquid frozen

Any commercially prepared washer fluid is the best. Don't mix your own....Believe it or not I find a gallon jug of my local supermarket brand works great.

I use what women use to clean up the windows and don't mix it with water .It takes more than 3 liters to fully top it off

I use what my housekeeper and cook leave laying around the house. Seems to work well.

I assume you are talking about windshield washer fluid. I had this message recently and discussed with dealer. They suggested Rain X washer fluid. Costs only about $3. Works flawlessly so far. As I understand any commercially available fluid should be good too.

In these parts, the main feature required is freeze resistance!
