So I just bought a VW jetta for my first car. I've had it for about a month and I've noticed that the interior smells like crayons. It doesn't really bother me. I was just wondering if anyone else's VW smells like that.

It's the glue that they use for the interior... very common...

Is there anyway to get rid of the smell or mask it well?

Not that i'm aware of... check vwvortex.com and see what others have done. As far as i know it gets real bad when it's hot. Doesn't happen with Audi's though...

Yeah, I've read several forums on there about the smell. No solutions though.

I've heard just spraying it with fabreeze every few days works.

Comfort? An ex of mine had a Beetle and the smell was UNBEARABLE. I once read on vwvortex (a while ago when I was trying to get rid of the smell) that it had something to do with the sound deadening or some shit under the carpet
