The rear alignment IS adjustable, but not too many mechanics know how to do it. If the mounting bolts are loosened, the TOE setting can be adjusted so that the THRUST line is at 0 degrees. Keep in mind that the bolts should be replaced if this procedure is done. There are also aftermarket shim kits available if need be. This adjustment could save a lot of $$ in tire wear. What likely happened to your secondary air system is that the combi-valve was stuck slightly open at one time, letting moisture from exhaust get into pump, then either froze or rusted elements in the pump (the part you referred to as a 'reservoir' - understandably so, lol!). I'm a long-time VW mechanic, and recently bought one of these cars from a customer. We don't see a lot of VR6 engine failures, and for the ones that do, poor maintenance is usually the cause, which likely occurred before you bought the car. Agree with you on the cup holders, though!Report it
