Good car for long trips, definitely not a race horse!

2011 Toyota Camry LE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
I bought 2011 Camry LE (4 cyl.) with alloy wheels, sunroof, bluetooth, carpeted floor mats for about $24000 with 0% financing in late Oct. 2010. I have about 6000 miles on it and feel confident enough to write a review now.
Overall: Comfortable car with good gas mileage, but definitely not for someone who wants a sporty ride or good accleration (ZERO sportiness and accleration). The car struggled while going uphill, however driving on flat roads was very comfortable. Almost noiseless cabin. Easy to use features that seem to have not been upgraded since 2005. Have a buyer's remorse of overpaying the price.
Pros: Plush riding, very comfortable, lots of room, good gas mileage - I get exactly as advertised by Toyota. Have taken two 1000 mile roundtrips so far including extended driving through mountains. Did not feel exhausted or tired after the trip.
Cons: Very sluggish acceleration, spotty paint job, cheap interior plastics, insecure handling around corners and curvy roads. 2005 camry drives better around corners in comparison.
Secure handling around corners, improve the paint job. Replace cheap interior plastic. Definitely needs a big upgrade/improvement in the exterior styling. Current camry looks like a member from one big fat family. Improve the horsepower.
