Coastal's Story


Coastal Nissan came about in 2001 when Richard Walker and Tom Norton decided to go into business together, leveraging their combined 30 years in the automobile industry and a strong commitment to customer satisfaction. The original Coastal Nissan location is in Cohasset on Route 3A across from the Shaw's plaza. By 2005 the business had outgrown that location so they built a state-of-the-art facility at exit 14 off Route 3 in Norwell.

Just five years later, Coastal is ready to expand again - this time adding a Volkswagen franchise to the family. We are thrilled to announce the opening of our newest franchise in Hanover. Located on Route 53 at the intersection with Route 3, this fully renovated facility will deliver the same comfortable and professional experience our customers have come to expect.


Coastal Dealerships still operate on the same principle that has led to so many repeat customers - provide premium service without a premium price and customers will return (and bring their friends!)

The Cohasset location is now Coastal Auto Center, the South Shore's premiere destination for purchasing pre-owned vehicles and providing service for all makes and models.

Coastal Nissan, which now includes the full line-up of Nissan Commercial vehicles remains in the Norwell facility.
