The terms oversteer and understeer are both used to describe the way a car turns, but they have different meanings. The term "oversteering" refers to the front wheels of the vehicle pulling more than usual during cornering. This can cause problems like spinning out or fishtailing. Oversteering is often caused by incorrect tire pressure levels, worn-out suspension components, or improper alignment of the wheels on your vehicle's axle.

On the other hand, an understeered vehicle will turn with less input from steering compared to what would normally be expected for that particular turning radius and speed. This happens when there is too much weight on one side of your tires due to some kind of imbalance in your vehicle's load, or when the wheels on one side are turning less than usual. This usually happens to the front wheels of a front-wheel-drive car that is cornering.

So if you accidentally understeer while driving in Mystic, CT, don't try to adjust your steering wheel during this maneuver. Instead, lightly apply the brakes so more weight transfers to the front end of your car, which will restore the balance of pressure on both sides. This should help you get back into a controlled turn.
