17 Scatpack - Aligment Issues

Has anyone here had issues with their alignment? I have a 17 Scat and I am on my 3rd alignment at 12K miles. I do live in Houston, TX where the roads are pretty horrible but that is not a reason for me to have 3 alignments done within such a small time frame. Plus I am extremely careful and purposely avoid bad roads. The last time I got it done, the manager stated that maybe the previous dealership that aligned the car did not have their machines calibrated, and he also stated that it is normal since the roads in Houston are horrible. I feel like my intelligence was slightly insulted. Anyone know what could be causing this? Could the frame be bent from the factory? I don't believe any of the suspension components are bent since the vehicle has never been in a collision, nor have I ever ran over a curb, went off the road or any such issue. Would this be considered grounds to lemon law the car? Honestly this is one of many issues I've had with the vehicle and it's just exhausting at this point. This is my 4th charger and most definitely the last FCA product that me and anyone in my family will ever own.

What were your issues with alignment, ie what made you do it 3 times? In my first year of both my '11 R/T and '16 SP, I've had to align it several times. My steering wheel was never straight. I just got new wheels/tires and need to get it aligned again...it's annoying.
