What's the Difference Between Oversteer and Understeer?

Is your car not responding as well as you want for your turns? When you have reoccurring issues with understeering and oversteering, then you likely have a tread problem, steering wheel issue, or perhaps it’s just driving too fast. Understeering is when you drive too wide for a turn, which means that you haven’t turned the wheel as hard as you need to take a turn correctly. However, the opposite is true with an oversteering.

With oversteering, you can over-correct and send your car into a spin, causing you to veer into another lane of traffic or the curb. This can happen on icy patches of road when you’re driving too fast. You should always take it slow when driving in wet weather that causes roads to be extremely slippery.

You can get a tune-up and have your tires checked when you stop by the service department at Pantili Hyundai located in Princeton, WV.
