2010 Toyota Camry LE

This Camry has clean title, never had an accident, all maintenance up-to-date, and drives like new. Engine was replaced in early 2023 with a factory certified 32,000 miles engine. Engine was replaced at 120k due to timing chain issue. The current odometer is 138k, so the engine only has around 45,000 miles. Maintenance records and receipts available. Vehicle needs no work. Ice cold air condition. Inspection valid thru June 2025. Vehicle has multiple minor and moderate scratches and marks when it was used in the City for 2 years, but nothing major other than cosmetics. Also, the driver sunshade panel is loose and do not stay up. I have a velco to keep it in place. Come with installed aftermarket backup camera.

Near-campus homework support


We are Swarthmore community residents in search of after-school homework support and care for our children, 1st and 4th grade students at the local Swarthmore-Rutledge elementary school. The opportunity would be in our home, very close to campus (just a few houses beyond the Courtney Smith House) for the 2024-25 school year. We are looking for help on most weekday afternoons but have the flexibility to accommodate occasional schedule conflicts. We’d be open to the opportunity being shared by a couple of friends to accommodate the number of weekly work hours suggested by the college (link below). The opportunity could be a good fit for a college student interested in child development or education. We will offer competitive pay rates in excess of on-campus “pay level 3” opportunities (link below). Both parents are academic pediatricians with hybrid remote/on-site work professional responsibilities and will often, but not always, be home. Please contact nbamat@gmail.com with questions or interest. Thank you for considering!
