This happened while driving on a freeway. Weather was sunny, in the 20S, pavement was dry but there were short icy patches under bridges. Every time I passed over one of these patches I experienced severe fishtailing. I had to reduce speed to under 30mph to retain control of the car while traffic was passing me at 60+ mph. Tires were new Goodyear assurance. This is extremely nerve wracking and is a frequently reported problem on the Subaru online user forums such as: www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/127473-ghost-walking/ the problem is not evident when driving on dry or on snowy roads.
