  oPilot posted its best June since 2005 with record sales of 12,085 and up

"Honda was firing on all cylinders in June with the hot-selling Accord joined
by the Fit, CR-V, Odyssey and Pilot all posting their best sales of the year,"
said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales at American Honda. "Our
goal for 2013 is to be the leader in retail sales for all four of our highest
volume models: Accord, Civic, CR-V and Odyssey. These solid results further
showcase Honda's pure, market-driven momentum achieved by customers choosing
Honda vehicles one at a time rather than relying on fleet sales to drive
volume."

Acura

  oThe RDX marked its 14th consecutive month of record sales with 4,023 units
    sold, remaining the top selling Acura for the month
  oThe MDX recorded June sales of 3,828 as supply of the all-new model
    increased following the June 20th launch

"Record sales of the RDX underscore Acura's leadership in the fast growing
entry luxury SUV segment," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general
manager of Acura sales. "With the all-new MDX now on-sale and just starting to
hit dealer lots, we look to continue this sales momentum well into the
summer."
