      We went back today to get the Touareg, which is still a mess, and I saw him there. He barely remembered you ( ) and said that he would be out of the area at that time.
      I think he thought I was a bit crazed for coming up and striking up a conversation.

      barely remembered me!?!?!?! JEFF!!! nah, i'm sure he didn't think you were crazed. if you'd known us in college...we were nuts and he thought we were quite the norm he was probably thinking what a small world it was with you knowing him thru someone else like that! too bad he won't be able to make it, tho.
      what's wrong with the touareg?

      Eh, it can't be aligned. Yes, that's right. Can't. The dealership tried it and couldn't get it to track straight, so they sent it down the road to an alignment shop. They'd tried to do a Touareg in the past and couldn't get it right, so they refused to even attempt. I think they're going to contact VWoA about it as the dealership has even said they've done all they can. Perhaps VWoA has some special technique. If they don't, it's been in for the same problem the magical three times, so it's eligible for, eh... you know, that "thing."

      the fruit thing, huh? that's too bad. they'll replace it with a new one if that happens, right? not familiar with the laws...

      at one point i really wanted to get rid of the passat, but it was right after the accident and it was like, you know, you try to keep something nice and now it's messed up b/c of idiots and it won't ever be the same...but i got over it and decided to keep it forever!

      Yeah, I've had the same thoughts a couple times. All it takes is a few hours detailing it and I put those thoughts to rest.
      Yeah, they'd have to replace it with a new one. I'm thinking the first step will be for VW to send a master tech for the region to align it himself. I can't imagine that it truthfully cannot be aligned.

      Don't worry your Mom's Touareg isn't the only one. When i was at Gossett they were having several of them coming back for the same reason.
      On a side note...mine can't be aligned either. Then again your moms car is only a year old.

      Does Gossett know how to align them, though? That's the issue is finding someone that can align it. I know it can be done. If they still can't seem to do it here, they're going to try to get a new one I suppose.
      I'm well aware hers isn't the only one. The ****ty thing is that VW only acknowledges the first 25,443 units of 2004 as being bad, and they are still sending out some 2005s that are bad. Ours is a 39k. VW won't even pay the dealer for the alignments that have been done thus far.
      How was the wedding?

      Well if anybody could do it...Mark could. I will see if i can get him on here to read about the situation. His name is "Wasted Wages" on here.
      The wedding was cool. I'm so happy for my bro. We have been pretty close since his accident. Kinda was a lil sad, he no longer him being a bachelor.

      Yeah, I'm sure I'll feel the same way when I get married- sad but happy at the same time.
      I thought about Mark yesterday when we were talking to the guy at the dealership. See what he says about it.

      Ah- okay. I mistakenly assumed that you might have gone out with Mike last night. If you noticed his state this morning, you'd know why I assumed you may be hung over.
