Unhappy loss of control/steering

I was in my G6 today..Car veered to the right..I tried to bring it back..It arched (U turn) and ended up in a ditch..It was below zero..I had no control of the car/steering, my feet was neither on the brake/pedal..

The scary part is that this happened to me last winter..same story..car slid right, I tried to steer left, car made a U turn, crossed a median and ended up on the other side with NO Help From Me..I had no control of vehicle..

It all happens so fast there is no time to respond..

I have had all sort of problems with the car including the veering issue..Dealership solution-rotate/balance tires..They could not find ANYTHING wrong..

Please help..The same problem, both times in winter..You lose control of the steering..The first time I thought, the roads were slippery..But the same problem twice is not normal..Any thoughts ?

ALso interesting, I was not doing any more than 30-35MPH either time..

Seems a few of the members here have had lockups.. none of us have wrecked (that I remember) but 2 people before you have totalled their vehicles due to accidents involving steering loss. Sorry to hear that
