The smell in mine is long gone! The AC is off and life is good. Just an inconvenience to go through menus to turn it off. Not a deal breaker at all.

Not having a starter, RX450h does no such thing. It is very surprising that the 350 does this. Old battery, maybe?

Dealers (the finance guy) will try to upsell you to make more money. All you get is the same services you would outside of the dealer, at a significant markup. Skip all of them.
