Find used cars in Santa Ana with CarsDirect. For those who aren't sure about where the city of Santa Ana is, a little clarification may be necessary. The city of Santa Ana, California, is the largest city in Orange County, but has become a part of the Los Angeles metro area since its foundation in the 1800s. A Santa Anna, Texas, has a slightly different spelling. In Orange County, California, the city of Santa Ana is estimated to have over 300,000 residents. It makes up part of the metropolitan community that comprises Los Angeles as well as Long Beach. As part of this bustling urban area of over 13 million, Santa Ana is in some ways a kind of "L.A. neighborhood". The character of the city of Los Angeles means that individual characteristics of specific municipalities sometimes get lost in the mix. What this means for used auto sales is that Santa Ana residents have access to the vast network of used car dealerships. They provide transportation to many Los Angeles residents who need vehicles to get around this sprawling urban area. Because of the way Los Angeles is laid out, it's often impractical to use public transportation for commuting or other purposes. That means a true glut of automobiles and other personal vehicles on the local Southern California market.
