Life Saving but Fishtailing

Vehicle
2006 Buick Lucerne CXL V8 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)
Review
Safety features saved my life; in avoiding a sideswipe, my car fishtailed. It wasn't easy to correct; very slow steering feedback. My last correction may have worked, had the steering been more responsive. All safety features & OnStar worked in my wreck & helped me whenever driving. I hit a light pole & metal fence at 60 mph. I'm bruised, sore, fractured collar bone; but I walked away. Compared with other cars I owned, the Lucerne wasn't as agile in handling in tight situations. Quick steering feedback is a must, or you will over correct. The '06's slight pull right ~ at least sent me into a metal fence and pole, not an embankment of trees. I had stability control and did not flip.
Favorite Features
This is a quiet, comfortable car--both for rider and passenger. I loved this car and cannot replace it. Tons of safety features that work flawlessly in a wreck. The side airbags & screen protector saved me from side injury. The seatbelt & front air bag kept me from going into the windshield
Suggested Improvements
Better distribution of front & rear weight could help with fishtailing. Improve stability control even more; I had it, but even more would help. Please get a handle on the steering responsiveness. The '06 had better fuel economy, town & highway, than the '08-- Please improve here, tool
