Understeer and oversteer are issues associated with vehicle dynamics. These are issues that motorists typically can feel and recognize. Oversteer occurs when a driver uses a steering wheel to turn and the vehicle moves more broadly than anticipated. Understeer occurs in a situation in which a motorist commands the steering wheel and a smaller than anticipated turn occurs.

Understeer steer is associated with a front-wheel drive car. It happens when the engine sends power to the wheels. A driver can't feel the grip any longer when this powerup occur.

Oversteer is a phenomenon associated with rear-wheel drive vehicles. When power is sent to the wheels, the rear end can lose its grip. When that occurs, the front end of the vehicle is overtaken, resulting in oversteering. You can examine whether a vehicle has an issues with oversteer or understeer by taking a test drive at Cox Auto Group.
