No I think that is incorrect manufacuterier will have more understeer the oversteer. It depends on what car etc.
Understeer is the tendency if your entering a corner at high speed and driver will start to make his turn the car will want to stay straight. It is the front losing grip in corner entry. The rear tires have more traction then the fronts basically.
Oversteer is just the opposite in the car will feel like it wants to rotate or spin as the driver steers the vehicle into a corner.
There are several ways you can address these issues being with spring rates, sway bar thickness, alignment settings, weight distribution and tires being used etc.
