Honda recently reported that it was happy with the way it dealt with the winter storms in February, posting sales of 107,987 units, only accounting for a 2 percent decrease in sales compared to a year ago. The automaker noted that year-to-date sales are still above levels seen during the same period of time last year.
"It took a big winter storm in the Northeast to slow us down a bit, but our robust sales over the last three weeks show that our strong retail momentum continues," said John Mendel, executive vice president of Sales at American Honda. "With Accord posting strong numbers and spring just around the corner, the best is yet to come."
Honda noted that sales of its all new Accord, which is among the top selling cars in the nation, were up 35.2 percent on a year-over-year comparison to 27,999 units. In addition, the automaker said that sales were helped out by the 2013 Crosstour as it saw its second month of double digit sales growth this year, up 15.3 percent in February.

The Accord won the category of the best Midsized Sedan, the CR-V took the top spot in the Small SUV category and the Odyssey won the No. 1 spot in the Minivan category.
Rik Paul, Consumer Reports' automotive editor, said this year's list saw an overhaul led by Honda's return.
