Default Honda Civic EX 2006 winter behavior

Since winter started.. The car behave weirdly on cold weather and road
condition. The handling of the car feels very unsecure, like a drifting
feeling. When people rides with me, they also feel very unsecure. At
first, I though it was the OEM tires, but today, buy some brand new winter
tires on 15'' rims.. Still that same feeling.

It's my fourth car, and used to driving in winter, and I never experienced
such poor handling with a car..

Is this normal with those 8th gen civic? Could it be a problem with my car?

Thanks

I have an 06 Si that is solid in the snow. No drift, handles like a
champ. But the suspension is a bit different on the EX, so I am not sure.

Being a small car, though, I would expect it to feel pretty solid in snow.
Perhaps you should take it to the dealer, and take the service tech out
for a ride to show him what you mean.

Maybe you need a full wheel alignment.
My 94 Integra GSR wore out tires in only 20K miles(twice) due to bad
alignment,it was like that right off the dealer's lot. Never hit any
potholes or other road hazards,no accidents.
(My last 2 Preludes had excellent tire wear in comparison.)

=================================

Try a different tire gauge, and set them to 32 PSI COLD.
