About Us

We are one of Southern California's LARGEST SELLERS OF QUALITY PRE-OWNED CARS.

Public Motors offers a new and exciting way for you to buy the car of your choice, at the PRICE YOU WANT TO PAY! Our giant facility is centrally located in Orange County, just 30 minutes from Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, and San Diego County. We are open SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, from 9 AM to 9 PM.

  • In ORANGE COUNTY, we are located at 2114 E. 1st Street, Santa Ana, CA 92705. We are easily located right off the 5 freeway at the 1st Street exit, near the intersection of the 5 and 55 freeways. You can reach us at 800-236-1206.
Now, here's how it works: We offer a huge selection of quality, pre-owned vehicles, from 2000 to 2013, and at prices $1,000s below retail. Whether you're looking for an inexpensive economy car or a great deal on a luxury vehicle, we have the car for you. Our cars usually sell for prices as low as $3,500 for economy models to $18,000 for a high-quality luxury car.

We conduct an Online Auction 24/7, and a LIVE auto auction every Sunday and Wednesday. You can make a bid on the car of your choice online, or at the live auction, or you can make a silent bid at any time. Silent bid cars can be financed. Online and Live auction cars are sold for cash only. To bid online, simply click "Bid Online" on the top of this Web site. Online auctions run from Monday through Sunday, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

We only offer popular makes and models with solid reputations for quality and reliability, including Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, as well as Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Acura, Lexus, Volvo, Jaguar. We also offer quality domestic makes including Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Saturn. We thoroughly check-out all vehicles prior to sale, including a full mechanical and safety inspection, and a smog certification.

Because we are so confident in the high quality of the vehicles we sell, we include a 3-month / 3,000 mile limited warranty on every vehicle sold. In addition, every vehicle is eligible for an extended warranty / service contract for 12 months to 5 years. This means you can drive out with the confidence that your vehicle is fully protected for up to 5 years.

We sell thousands of pre-owned vehicles each year, and many more than any other independent dealership in Southern California. Our volume selling means we can offer lower prices to you. We are not controlled by a manufacturer and therefore focused on selling you the car we are franchised to sell (even if that's not what you want). Instead, similar to COSTCO and Wal-Mart, we look for the best brands, makes and models, at the best prices. We deliver these cars to you at tremendous savings!

We keep our overhead low so that we can save you money! We don't have extravagant facilities with fancy cappuccino machines that you ultimately pay for in the end! You'll find our facilities clean and efficient and our staff courteous and helpful. We are committed to deliver you the highest quality car at the lowest possible price! Guaranteed!

When you arrive at one of our locations, you'll find a large selection of quality pre-owned vehicles. After registering for the auction, you are free to browse, take your time, and view and inspect all the cars you want. If you like, you can bring your mechanic, or take the car for a test drive. All cars are displayed with a CARFAX® / AUTOCHECK vehicle history report, so you can buy with confidence. The CARFAX / AUTOCHECK report tells you all the details about the car, including its reported ownership and service records.

When you're ready, you can submit an online bid, or a silent bid on any vehicle in our inventory. On Sundays and Wednesdays, we conduct a live auction with an auctioneer. You can make a bid at the live auction or an online bid, or silent bid at any time. Financing is available for silent bid cars.

We don't put high prices on our cars that are meant to scare you into paying more than you want. We simply give you the pertinent data on the car, including CARFAX / AUTOCHECK and Kelly Blue Book information. You set the price that you want to pay. You make a bid on the car of your choice. Your are in control of the process.

Financing is available, subject to your credit history for as little as $1,000 down. If you're interested in financing your vehicle, you can get pre-approved in just seconds by clicking on our finance page, and applying online. Within seconds, you will receive an approval delivered right to your computer! It's amazing - try it out now by going to our finance page.
