    Default rear wheel drive vectra..

    i have never had a car where the back end kicks out so much in the snow!

    if i turn more than about 50* the back likes to kick out especially if their is any weight shift!
    its tried to catch me out a few times!
    any one else found this?

    Try gentler turns and stay off the brakes, use the gearbox.

    Probably the driving style or the tyres. Either way it's unlikely to be the car itself as most seem to be coping fairly well.

    Take it slow and easy, smooth driving is the key. Anticipate and eyes open.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
