The Detroit Free Press' Mark Phelan has amended his recent review of the Acura TL, which harshly criticized the car's suspension, which caused the car to pull and wander all over the road. Someone then figured out that the car had misaligned tires, major steering gear issues, and several bent pieces in the front suspension, even though the car had just been checked out by the dealer prior to the test. Whoops. The car was finally fixed for real, re-tested and Phelan has retroactively awarded the car a third star. That reminds me of that time that I test drove a Daewoo, and I thought the suspension was broken. As it turns out, the car just handled like crap.
