Trying to keep it on the road.....

At the end of winter 2014, our Entourage started loosing traction whenever we would hit a small patch of snow or ice while driving. The rear end would shift sideways. It was very concerning as we felt that we would go out of control. We took it in to the dealership to have it looked at and there was nothing they could find. The snow tires on it were bought in the fall. It was nearing the end of the winter so we left it. I changed back into the winter tires sometime in November heading into winter again. I rotated the tires. The first snow fall and the problem was still there. I took it in to the garage to have it looked at again. They did not find anything. The tires were rotated. It continued to happen. We took it into another garage and they found a loose upper control arm ( or maybe it was stability ?).They also noticed that the tires were wearing strange. It was determined that it was the tire design. So we replaced the tires. It seemed fine although we did not get a lot of snow. Then in the fall of 2016, we received an early snowfall and I had not changed to the new snow tires. I got a panicked call from my wife as the van was weaving all over the road and she was not driving it any further. I went to where she was and let me tell you, it was a scary ride home. I changed the tires right away thinking that it was the all seasons. Well, it was not. We took it back in to the garage that tightened the loose arm to see if that was the problem. It was fine. So, has anyone else had a similar experience?

Well, you don't say where you are.

I was having squirming issues with my Accent, and it turned out it was ice. On the road that is. I have had better cars on ice, but ice is not something easily dealt with.

Aside from that, do you have traction control, ABS, etc? I had a Chrysler with TC and I turned it OFF because of the same issue.

You can always try studded tires.

Do you know any satisfying profanity?!

Sorry, southern Ontario. Up until two winters ago, this was not an issue. The van is equipped with the ESC, which I have tried turning off but it still had the same issue.
