There is not a single Vdub in the entire world that goes straight in a line, and theres a reason. Quite simple really, after pondering why my car kept going right when you let go of the wheel, my dad informed me, along with several other sources, that this is simply a safety feature. If you fall asleep, the car is designed to put you in a ditch, instead of oncoming traffic. Look it up if you dont believe me.
I doubt the machine would give wrong reading unless he is measuring from the wrong places. Possibly a bad alignment/shady mechanic. For what it cost, mabye try getting another alignment (from a differnt shop), and replacing all the control arm/suspension bushings. Does the car favor one side? and how hard/far do you have to pull the wheel to get it to glide straight?
well...its something like this...
if the car is in neutral and going down a hill,it goes forward(a litle tiny bit to the left).
if you accelerate it goes a litle(more) to the left.
when you take your foot out it goes madly to the right...
the thing is,when accelerating,the steering whell straights and its in regular position.when the foot is off,it goes to the left...
i got the car aligned some time ago,and when it came from there is was even worse!!!
i think i saw the left whell(driver side) a litle bit off.outgoing i might say...so,it was like this \-----| left out.the guy there said it was my eyes...and the machine was showing accuracy on the alighment...but hey,i'm just a duber with no experience...can the machine get it wrong!?
and the mechanic said to me that was the ruber things in the trianguler piece that goes up and down,where the shock olds on to.i dont know the name in english.
