Orange County, CA is the second most populated county in California. It is well known for its affluence as well as its attractions. Orange County has become one of the most popular counties in the United States thanks to reality television shows ‘Laguna Beach’ and ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’.


While not all of Orange County shares the same set of morals or the same savings account as most of the personalities on these shows, it has given the rest of the country a dream of what life would be like to live on the beach with a fat wallet.

Many of the cars that are seen being driven in the reality shows as well as a drama ‘The OC’ give the impression that everyone in the county drives a very expensive car. Most of what we see on the ‘Real Housewives’ are BMWs, Mercedes, Range Rovers, and Lexus’. Meanwhile, the teenage version of these housewives, on ‘Laguna Beach’, are being showered with sweet sixteen rides by the likes of Volkswagen Jettas and Mercedes convertibles.

If you were basing your opinion completely off of what you see on TV, you would think that Orange County used cars are nonexistent. However, many of the vehicles that you see on the TV shows are in fact Orange County used cars. The used car dealerships in Orange County usually specialize in high end cars. It is easy to knock about $20,000 off of a top of the line car by waiting for it to have just 5,000 miles on it.

There are also Orange County used cars for the more modest car drivers. These lots usually hold high end cars as well as cars with up to 100,000 miles on them. If you are in the Los Angeles area and are looking for a car, check out one of the used car lots in Orange County for a great deal!
