The results mark the company's 11th consecutive year of sales increases. American Honda December sales of 137,381 jumped 30.1 percent over year ago results to a set a new record for the month, while light truck sales rose to a new single-month record of 57,762 SUVs and minivans.

"The competition is not about to let up, but with Acura on a roll and great new products like the Honda Ridgeline and an all-new Civic coming down the pipe, we think 2005 will be another strong year for us."

Honda Division sales in 2004 were up 1.1 percent to 1,195,479 cars and light trucks, while December results rose 31.1 percent to 117,235.
