General Oversteering and Understeering Characteristics

When a vehicle maneuvers around curves, it will only stay on the road if its steering system in optimized for steep turns. The process of gliding a car around a curve is simple if it doesn't oversteer or understeer. This guide covers general information about a steering system and simple ways to detect common signs.

A steering system has various components that work together during cornering situations. The degree of a turn varies based on the drive train. If a car has front-wheel drive, power will distribute to the front tires, which is why a vehicle that has this type of system can understeer. Oversteering impacts automobiles that have a rear-wheel drive system; it makes turns sharper around curves. However, you can manage oversteering by gradually rotating your steering wheel when you need to make steep turns.
