When operating a vehicle, steering is one of the most important ways to maintain control while on the road. Having a good knowledge of your vehicle handles is imperative to your safety and the safety of your passengers. Two terms that describe the control of a vehicle are oversteer and understeer. These are both about how the vehicle turns in correlation with what the driver is intending it to do.

Oversteering is when the vehicle turns more than the driver is intending. This is due to the vehicle having more grip on the front tires and can result in the vehicle spinning out or fishtailing when making a turn.

Understeering happens when the vehicle turns less than what the driver is intending. Issues with understeering could result in the car veering off the road when trying to make a turn due to a lack of grip from the vehicle's tires.
