Good car for the money

2008 Toyota Camry SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Bought this car in 2011 for my wife.
It's a red Camry SE Sport edition with the 4 cylinder.
Overall it's a good little car.
We typically get 25mpg+ city driving.
We bought it with 99k miles on it and it currently has 128k on it now.
The only mechanical issue we've ever had was the left front wheel bearing failing and it cost less than $100 to repair at the dealership.
The interior finish is a little disappointing, as the silver painted trim wears easily so we can see black plastic through some areas but overall held up well and it's comfortable to drive and extremely reliable.
The 4 cylinders idle rough which we don't like, but confirmed this is normal on these cars and it runs fine.
Exterior sporty design
Great JBL sound system
Headlight plastic is cheap and yellows
Interior trim is cheap
Lack of power in the 4cylinder
