Nearly all mk4 VWs really. My GTI is fine, but my hubby's Jetta TDI is terrible. He took the soft touch coating off of the door handles using Purple Power or Simple Green (don't remember which) and a scotch brite pad. Just be careful not to scrub it off too much or you'll go through the paint as well.Yes, nearly every new beetle on earth has experienced this problem. It takes many hours of scrubbing to correct! The good thing is your car will be nice and clean when you are done.
