I have had happen to me 3 times in the last 5 days in different cold conditions, once with a little snow, one with alot, and one with a patch. Each time i was driving straight when i suddenly spun out, as if my rear end is swinging out and i have spun around 2 or more times each. The last time was on 8 mile across all 4 lanes! Now i am a bit worried another each time was different speeds from 45, 25, 35mph. Does this happen to anybody else? IVe never driven a front wheel drive car and had this happen. It also happened a few times last winter but always on a neighborhood street, so i didnt think much of it. Plust the cars rear end will slide out when i brake on snow usually, no matter what. The only thing i could think of that may cause this is the fact that i have new tires in front and old ones in the back, but im gonna get those changed tommorow. Anybody else let me know if this happens to your Cougar as well.
