Default Windshield Washer Fluid already low

Just about hitting 2 months with the Q8 and a little over 1000 miles. Yesterday, the car chimed and the low windshield washer fluid notification popped up. Anyone else had this happen so quick? I haven't used the windshield washers once, so I'm guessing the dealer didn't fill it. Anywhoo, is there special washer fluid for our Audi's? Or can I just pick up some of the blue stuff from the auto parts store?

I've gone through 3 refills in the 1 month I've owned my q8. Doesn't make any sense! It's like there's a leak somewhere but nothing is dripping on my garage floor. First low light came on 1 week after getting it.

Weird, are you just filling it up with water?

We refilled ours just a couple of weeks ago after owning the car for less than 2 months. It's definitely thirsty for washer fluid.

i assumed the dealer did not fill all the way. Had it refilled and light came on again three weeks later.

I had to refill mine last week. I've had my Q8 since October and rarely use the windshield washer so I was surprised that it was low. I chalked it up to the dealer not filling it but after seeing this thread that might not be the case. It took a full gallon when I refilled it.

It is very strange that so many have had to refill so soon. We have had our Volvo for 2+ years now and still haven't had to refill and our Ram is going on 5+ years and haven't refilled it. I haven't used the washers once on the Q8. It has been raining pretty much non stop for the past 2-3 weeks. Do we have headlight washers that come on with the windshield wipers?

Mine was nearly empty when I got it. I believe dock or dealer did not fill up during prep.

I've had 3 A7s and I've never had to refill windshield washer fluid in either of them.
