For those of you that have heard about oversteer and understeer, you likely have a few questions. Among the things you probably want to know are the differences between the two occurrences while driving. However, you also might want to know the types of vehicles that are likely to go through each of the occurrences.

If your vehicle is fishtailing, you are experiencing oversteer. The sliding out of the rear of the vehicle is an example of oversteer. For understeer, you are actually experiencing your vehicle losing grip and not being responsive to the turn of the steering wheel.

Depending on the circumstances, any vehicle can experience both. However, certain wheel drives can be vulnerable to one occurrence or the other. The oversteer issue is more likely to happen with rear-wheel vehicles with oversteer being more common with front-wheel based vehicles. You can check the manual to know what your vehicle is vulnerable to.
