Lee's familiarity with the industry came from both the drive-ability and diagnostics sides of automotive repair. His career began just as vehicles transitioning from being analog to that of the computerized vehicles the majority of the customers of our Ventura auto repair shop drive today. This has enabled Lee to be quite familiar with both the newer technology as well as that found in older cars and trucks. As the owner of ABC European, Lee supervises all repairs, ensuring they are completely properly. Additionally, Lee will road test each vehicle after being repaired or serviced to make sure they meet the high standards set forth by our team of automotive specialists.
