Anyone else have rodents chewing the wires and plastic on relatively new cars?

In order to be "green", auto manufacturers have been using plastics from renewable sources like plants.  It also turns out that rodents love the stuff and think it's really tasty.  A quick search on the internet shows it to be pretty much across the board of auto manufacturers.

We discovered late one night that rodents like fire alarm wiring in the attic...
Later on found them working on coax and Cat5, but thank god they dont like Romex.
