Understeer is a driving condition where the vehicle doesn't turn as much as the driver would like, because the front wheels are sliding. There are a number of conditions that can cause a vehicle to understeer, and many manufacturers build cars with some intentional understeer in their design because it is safer than oversteer, the opposite driving condition.
