n.— «One of the most taxing things about being a driver is negotiating a car with “push.” Or, as the drivers say, keeping a car that “pushes like a pig” from “swapping ends.” Push is the term for understeer, which is when the front end wants to ride sideways on the surface of the tires, rather than turn properly.» —“Driven to succeed” by Candace Murphy Inside Bay Area (California) Aug. 21, 2006.
