Stay Safe on the Road by Optimizing Your Steering System

Understeering is a problem that makes the process of staying on a curve challenging. Oversteering causes an opposite problem, as it makes steering sharper. These steering problems are easy to resolve since they're caused by steering components that influence grip.

When a vehicle begins to understeer, a driver doesn't experience grip during cornering situations. This happens because the wheels are affected by increased engine power. As a result, while a vehicle that understeers is driven around a curve, the lack of grip will make it continue to drift straight. The car will only begin to turn after its steering wheel reaches a certain point during the rotation.

Oversteering occurs when the front wheels on a vehicle get more power than the back tires. This problem makes an automobile turn too quickly after the steering wheel is slightly rotated. The crew at Acura of the Rio Grande Valley can service vehicles that have these steering problems. We work on steering systems for traditional and turbo-charged engines.
