I absolutely agree. On my 91 TQ 20 V I had the timing belt replaced. The car was running like crap. I checked the timing mark on the flywheel and it was off. I had to take the service manager and tech to show this before they would redo this. Then it was back to running great!

If you used the crank pulley mark to realign all bets are off, those are 
notorious for being wrong.  Use the flywheel mark, it can't go wrong.
