Just wanted to share my experience driving Monday on highway 22 an hour and a half outside of Pittsburgh. As I drove up a small mountain grade, it started to rain big drops but the ground temperature was about 25 degrees. Yep, you guess it. Unforecasted freezing rain. Within seconds, my windshield iced up and the road turned into a sheet of ice. There was a bunch of truckers that pulled over and waving us to slow down. I had already slowed down but can't hit the brakes so I coasted to slow down and stop. All around me, cars and trucks were losing control and going off the road. The road was completely closed for about an hour so they could get the salt trucks and emergency vehicles in. The road was so icy that the salt truck actually drove backwards to lay down the salt and sand. The Clarity was remarkably well planted and stayed in control even though I was still driving on the OEM tires. The guy behind me in a full size 4 WD pickup truck lost control and fishtailed back and forth. I thought for sure he as going to crash into me (he didn't). It really surprised me. I assumed the Clarity would be just awful under those conditions but it could be the weight and low center of gravity. Possibly the traction control. Anyway, I hadn't installed winter tires because I take our Outback whenever the weather gets bad but after that experience I'm going to switch to all weather tires ASAP!
