I have the same issue and have posted in other VW forums but gotten no answer. Most of the plastic is sticky and gummy to the point that if I rub my knee with it while getting into or out of the car my pants are ruined for the day... My car is 2000 and not under warranty so VW service is out of the question. any suggestions?

I am happy to say my lease on my POC Jetta was up in March. Buh-bye. The harsh smell issue was brutal fora bout 6 months... Pretty much not driveable... It subsided, and then disapated completely. VW did NOTHING for me, and they even lied to me- I asked them to drive the car for a while, and the rep said he would, and said he did... when I picked the car up the mileage was the same as when I had dropped it off.
I have no idea what the smell was, but at least we were able to get some usage out of it again. We think it had something to do with the leather/glue/foam... Not sure.
Good luck with yours- sorry I cannot help. I will NEVER NEVER NEVER buy another VW again.
