Drive Confidently After Servicing an Inefficient Steering System

If you operate a vehicle that oversteers or understeers around curves, you could drive off the highway. This guide covers general ways understeering and oversteering causes problems during steep corning situations.

When understeering impacts a vehicle, the process of drifting along a curve will require strategic timing. Understeering makes cornering complicated by increasing the time that it takes to complete a turn. For example, you'll have to rotate a steering wheel a lot in order to drift around a simple curve on the road. If you rotate the steering too late, a car that understeers may continue to drive straight after it enters a curve. Oversteering extends a vehicle when it corners. This means that a car will turn sharper when a driver only needs to make a gradual turn on the road.

Oversteering and understeering problems can be resolved. If you need to repair a steering system for a new or used automobile, professional maintenance options are available at Hixson Mazda.
