Hi Fay and All,
In a way I'm glad you didn't get it towed yet, for I wanted to warn you
about the Arizona tows, even those under the auspices of AAA. My car was
towed from a motel to Mountain VW, I think, the local Audi dealer at the
time, and the front of the car was lifted and towed on the rear wheels which
was okay for the short distance. I discovered several hours later that the
tow driver had hooked onto a CVJ boot and torn it severely causing it lose
most of its grease. I had to backtrack to Flagstaff and get that same
dealer to replace the boot at a very high cost.
Moral: Either have them carry it on a "Jerrdan" style(flat bed wheels off
the ground) or be sure that they know that they're not supposed to hook
their safety chains on the CVJ's on the half shafts.
