g Review by Randyll C Ipswich, MA
"Had a really big job and they delivered an amount of professionalism I’ve never experienced before from any company, let alone an auto shop. They not only told me what was wrong with the vehicle, but they showed me as well. They got rid of my leaky fuel tank and replaced it with a better one, along with fixing other crucial parts of the vehicle."


M Review by Camilo D Ipswich, MA
"As a car enthusiast, it's tough to find someone you trust to work on your cars when you're not equipped to handle a certain repair. Nate is a very professional, fast and good mechanic. Very good work and doesn't cut any corners and seems to have the right tool for every situation. Highly recommend."

"Dropped our car off for an oil change and brake inspection. As suspected, we needed a brake job which was completed that afternoon. They did a quality job in timely manner and at a fair price. I’m also impressed with Nate’s use of technology for communicating and enhancing the customer experience."

"If you are looking for a local mechanic to assess your car needs. Do not hesitate to visit Cousin’s. Best diagnostic tools and highly skilled mechanics who have up to date training. The team is professional and courteous."


g Review by Mary C Ipswich, MA
"As a gal who isn't very knowledgeable in the realm of cars and auto repair, dealing with car stuff can be pretty scary. Britney was so kind and warm and she, Nate and Anthony all did a great job explaining what was going on, what they were doing and how the cost would be calculated. The feeling of trust and safety is really quite a gift, and that is what they give, thank you guys!"
