Problems with a vehicle's suspension may lead to under or oversteering. Understeering occurs when a vehicle's tires lose their grip. The front-wheel may stay straight despite a turn of the steering wheel. The problem is more common in front-wheel-drive vehicles when accelerating early in a turn. The problem might also occur if turning the wheels too far or too fast. Correction may include tire pressure or suspension adjustments.

Oversteering occurs when the front wheels have more grip than the back wheels. The rear end fishtails and the vehicle may spin out. The problem tends to occur in rear-wheel drive vehicles when the rear end loses power. The event poses a problem on slick surfaces during rain, snow or on mud. Correcting the problem requires loosening the suspension.

A newer vehicle does not plague owners with either problem. See the options in our Medford BMW inventory. Indulge in a test drive.
