Default New 2012 Acura TSX with 4 miles on it smells like burnt plastic

I just bought a new 2012 Acura TSX with 4 miles on it from dealer. It
smells like burnt plastic after I drive it for a few miles and the
engine heats up. I can sense this when I get out of the car and I'm
standing right next to it. I can smell it a little in the cabin, if I
have the vents open. Should I be worried? I searched around and it
doesn't seem like anybody else had the problem. So I'm kind of
worried..

This is normal. There is a coating on the engine & other parts that "burn
off" over time. If it is still stinky after a week, ask your dealer to take
a look.
I noticed the same smell with my TL & G35.

Normal but still surprising. Same thing on my new 2011 RL last year when
delivered by dealer.
