About Boxer Motor Works
Jason Seidman and Sergio Mequita both grew up in Peabody. Jay's passion for cars began at a young age when he would listen to his father's stories about the old muscle cars he used to own. From then on, Jay knew he wanted to be a part of the automotive field. Once reaching high school, he participated the Peabody Vocational Automotive Program and joined fellow classmate, Sergio, on the pursuit to make their passion a career. After high school, both Sergio and Jay were employed at Ira Subaru, where they perfected their trade. Both Subaru certified technicians, they were the top producers at the shop for over 10 years.
While gaining experience in the dealership world, both Jay and Sergio also managed fixing and maintaining all make and model cars for their friends and families. The volume of additional work kept growing as word of mouth about their accurate service spread. They paired up and decided to make the jump to start their own auto repair business, offering dealership quality without the dealership cost. Today, that business is called Boxer Motor Works.

Brought the wife's 08 Impreza in for service. I always hate going to places to get our cars worked on as I am a former dealership master tech and service manager. I currently don't have access to a shop with my new job and can only do limited work in my driveway. So I'm always cautions about where it get serviced and probably overbearing to their service departments. I'm not the best customer :) That being said. I arrived at my scheduled time. Sergio, one of their techs and owners, greeted me and took my keys and showed me to their modest but effective lounge. I started working on my laptop and was soon greeted by Jay the other owner who quickly gathered my information and got the paperwork going and asked great questions. Asking your customer more than just "What's it need?" is incredibly important for the shop to be time efficient and for the customer to be reminded of things they didn't intend to get looked at right away but the questioning jogged their memory. I rattled off a few things to take a peak at as well and told them some concerns I had and away they went getting my 08 Impreza serviced. Later Jay came and got me to show me a few things under the car which is very much appreciated. As a former tech, I don't just want to hear what's wrong, I want to see it so I can judge for myself how important it is. Jay and Sergio went over a few things under the car and gave me some quick informal quotes as nothing was pressing and I had told them already I wasn't getting anything extra done today. At no point did I feel pressured or "hard sold" on anything. He did a great job of just advising me, "this is what is wrong, this is the fix, this is the rough price." I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. Both Jay and Sergio were very friendly, relatable, and incredibly professional. The shop looks great for an independent shop. Their rates are great, and I appreciate not paying extra per hour for a nicer lounge, or better lighting. I'm there on a mission to get my car serviced/repaired and that's what they did. Thanks Jay & Sergio. I appreciate it. My WRX will be in soon and I'm sure its going to make y'all a few bucks too :) I would recommend the shop to anyone including my friends and family.

Honest pricing, quality work and fast turn around. Can't ask for much more!

'08 Subaru Outback head gaskets
I was not happy that my '08 Outback head gaskets started leaking at only 75,000 miles but it is what it is. I went to the dealer and they wanted $3400 for everything including timing belt, water pump, belts and hoses. I found out about Boxer Motor Works and called. Jason (Jay) said to bring it in because it may be something else leaking. I drove right over and he put it immediately on the lift and confirmed it was the head gaskets. Turns out this is a major failure complaint on many Subaru's until 2012. Anyway, Jay said the repairs would take 2 days and cost $1000 less than the dealer (no surprise there). I dropped it off and it was done in 2 days as promised and the car runs great. They all were very professional and did great work at a great price. Highly recommended!
