Learning to drive is more than just getting behind the wheel and taking off down the road. Drivers need to understand how their vehicles work and function in order to be as safe as possible. Oversteering and understeering are two terms that are often misunderstood, yet both refer to your vehicle’s sensitivity to steering. Our team at Bob Valenti Volkswagen of Mystic is available to answer any questions you may have about oversteering, understeering, or any other auto-related issues.

Oversteering is when your vehicle turns sharper than what you expected. Understeering, on the other hand, is when your car doesn’t turn sharp enough. Your lateral acceleration and steering angle are the two things that most affect oversteering or understeering. Oversteering occurs more with rear-wheel drive vehicles while understeering occurs more with front-wheel drive vehicles. If you still have questions about this or want to look at some new cars, give us a call or stop in at our Mystic, CT store.
