2011 BMW X3 xDrive28i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 8A)


Has anyone experienced this issue and was there a resolution to this SUV's poor handling stability?
I used to own a 2008 X3 which had the traditional great performing stiff hydraulic power steering, now this X3 comes with some kind of "electric" assist on steering which may or may not be the cause for an unstable ride when driving on uneven pavement (especially wheel gutters from nordic states spring thaw).
The car is simply unstable in its direction, it feels like you constantly need to fight the direction with oposition move on steering wheel to prevent it from swaying to right or left.
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
Please help, this car is great otherwise.
