|German term or phrase: schwimmen|
|"Einzelne beschrieben, dass er „...auf der Fahrbahn schwimmt“ und eine „...stabile Straßenlage fehlt.“"|
From an automotive market research report (about MPVs). What exactly is meant by "schwimmen" here. That it is imprecise and/or unresponsive?
Any comments or suggestions appreciated.
Wyhlidal's Kfz WB shows "wandering/wander" for "Schwimmen über dem Spür".
