Different Types of Vehicles Experience Oversteer and Understeer.

There are imperfections in the driving systems of vehicles which can result in oversteering or understeering. While every vehicle is vulnerable to both, there are certain vehicles that are a little less vulnerable to one than the other. Knowing which vehicle is which will help you avoid these issues.

Oversteer is something that happens more often with rear-wheel drive vehicles. One of the factors to this type of steer is the amount of weight that is put into the vehicle. With rear-wheel drive, more of the weight is put on the back of the vehicle.

Understeer is more likely to happen with front-wheel drive vehicles. This is again because of the weight distribution being more towards the front. Another factor to the understeer and oversteer is the power of the engine. Powerful engines can cause this. Fortunately, electronic stability control is one of the features that have been added to vehicles.
