Where the front CV drive axles checked? And was there a front end alignment done? Causes for the vehicle pulling, and noise.

That sounds like a broken mount, could be an engine, transmission or even a cracked frame. I would locate a shop that specializes in VW and have it check over, tell them what is happening.

your car has an undue amount of torque-steer- every front-drive car has it, but it can be lessened by having equal-length drive shafts- and other tech tricks- my guess is that things are not quite right with the work that was done, and it has made the natural tendency worse-
