Random Thought

Has anyone else ever noticed that VW Jetta's (year 2001 and newer) smell like Crayola Crayons? I have noticed it in two of my friends cars.

EVERY Jetta I've ever been in smells like crayons (and sometimes crayons mixed with wet dog). I have mentioned this to all the Jetta owners I know (sans the wet dog part).

ha ha ha! if mine smells like wet dog i'm blaming waldo! i have had SO many people tell me the same thing. weird huh? maybe we should write someone at VW and ask what's up with that?

Make it 3 people you know... Blue Diamond Phillips smells like crayon.

My friend Janna researched why and found: When VW built the jetta's they sprayed a form of wax on the undercoating. Some of the wax on certain model year jetta's got on the heating element and some on part of the engine. So when you turn the car on, BAM, crayon smell.

My car also smells like crayons and has ever since I got it! It is so weird and I thought I was the only one...until Lindsay Avery told me otherwise :) I really hope it doesn't smell like wet dog, though...gross!

I've never been IN your car Ashleigh, so I can't say whether or not the dog smell is present :) Maybe I'll take a whiff tonight. Ha!

Yes! Every time I get in Jamie's car I think about it! Cabe's car smells the exact same way.

I am so glad that JMcquary has found an answer to my random thought! I love that you all confirmed that I am not crazy!

I'm new to your blog- I found it in a crazy round about kind of way after visiting Natalie Moser's blog-- anyway- I have a VW Beetle and it smells like crayons. No matter what I do I can't make it go away.
