California Imports had humble beginnings. Doors opened in 1987 in the city of Huntington Beach. After years of passion and an ambitious yearning to expand, California Imports has blossomed. However, we never forgot our roots and hold the same principles and philosophies that we’ve had since the start:

• We keep our operation simple and solid, so we never lose that personal touch.
• We treat our customers as we would want to be treated, always keeping their best interests at heart.
• We provide automobiles that are safe, dependable and attractive.
• Easy in-house financing gives our customers freedom of auto choice, both in selection and purchasing power.
• Our sales professionals are honest which keeps our integrity intact; anchoring  our business on a foundation of trust.


Most of our advertising is through word of mouth and referrals from our previous customers. We invite you to call and come in for a test drive!


  • We had a pleasant experience buying our car at California Imports. David and Angelo are very nice people. They always speak honestly with us. When we got a problem with the first car we bought from them, they come to help us solve at first time. Then we are thinking about change to another car, they are also kind showing us more options. During the experience, we also have great chats on culture things. We were staying too late, they even bought roasted chickens for our hungry stomach. We had a wonderful experience there. They are sincere people. We feel great to meet such nice owners.June L.
  • This is a very respectable business who treated us with nothing but the utmost professionalism. We purchased from them and got superior customer service throughout our time working with them, especially from Jason. We thoroughly enjoyed doing business with them and definitely recommend you give them a try if you’re in the market for a quality previously owned vehicle. Top Notch!!Tim W.
  • I had a great experience and would definitely recommend them and shop here again. I test drove a few cars and they were all very nice. Eventually I picked one that was best for my situation (price and value), and feel that I got a great deal on my BMW. Every time I drive with the top down I can’t help but smile. The price was right, it runs great and looks even better. David was very kind and not pushy at all. I find the other reviews to contradict my experience, however it is shown that people are more likely to write a review about their bad experience, than to leave one after a good experience. Anyway, check it out for yourself, they aren’t pushy and it’s probably best to do your due diligence and see for yourself. Thank you David!Eyal K.
  • Great customer service! I felt at ease with the entire process. The quality of the cars that are there are great. The car I picked out was in perfect shape and financing wasn’t as hard as I expected.Dan L.
  • Since 1999, my family and I have been purchasing autos from California Imports in Huntington Beach. Nine cars later, I plan to buy a 10th. The quality of the cars has always been excellent, and the service ALWAYS superb. You receive personalized attention, and the owner will make it a point to help you find the car you are looking for. After all those years, I wouldn’t even think of going anywhere else. . .thank you California Imports! Naftali K.
  • This is the best place to go if your looking for a well kept motor vehicle. I have personally been buying cars from David & California Imports for over 15 years, & purchasing 9 cars, including the car in which I own right now, as well as my son’s car which has given us no issue & which he enjoys very much. I would highly recommend you stop by if you’re interested in great deals along with great cars throughout the whole lot. The perfect step by step process that the staff uses makes sure you are fully informed of the car’s history as well other major details that you would like to know. I wouldn’t go anywhere else to purchase a car. Robert R.



You wouldn’t know it immediately, but the chipper, friendly salesman in front of you used to have aspirations of a corporate life. However, even with a successful career as a mechanical engineer, a large office and a slew of secretaries, David felt something was missing. This endearing husband and father to four boys felt that business life was missing personability, the kind of human interaction that brings joy. Leaving engineering behind, David embarked on a life-long sales journey. Even though he only made $100 his first month in sales, he never doubted his choice. David has worked tirelessly: long days, long weeks, months and years. Over 30 years and thousands of car sales later, David’s passion for people and cars is still clearly seen. One customer at a time, one sale at a time, one handshake at a time, David says “These people aren’t just ‘people’, they are MY friends.”

If you’re looking for someone who cares about YOU, a man who puts customers and service ahead of profit,
Welcome to California Imports!
