Advancetrac or Driver Problem?

Just purchased 2012 Titanium. Driving from Kansas City back to Oklahoma car handled perfect with no wind.
Drove Tulsa to Dallas with a 30mph crosswind. As the wind pushed the car sideways, I would correct the steering wheel but the result was always over correction resulting in a series of small corrections that had me going from the left side of the lane to the right.
This a.m. driving Dallas to OKC in the rain was white knuckle time. I love the car but this is dangerous. Has 17" tires and does not have the upgraded suspension option. I travel Texas and Oklahoma so wind will be there. Need to figure out what to do.

I believe it has a lot to do with the electric steering compensating for crosswinds.

I think there was a TSB... someone else could chime in with more detail.

What other people think of me is none of my business.
