At our dealership, we want to answer your common questions about the performance and terminology of your vehicle. Let's go over the differences between oversteer and understeer.

Oversteer - is when the driver causes the car to steer more than the steering wheel was turned. This is a common occurrence in cars that are front-wheel drive, as the front of the car has the control of power while the rear of the car easily loses traction.

Understeer - is when the wheels are turning but the car doesn't change direction. This most commonly happens with cars that are rear-wheel drive.

In both cases, this happens mostly because of an engine that is powerful enough to power the car out of control. If you want to go for a well-controlled drive in a great vehicle, come to DCH Tustin Acura, where we can help you out with that.
