Honda offers dealers cash if December sales top 2012 levels
American Honda Motor Co. wants its dealers’ sales this month to top December 2012 levels, and is offering cash to make sure that happens.

We’re contacting them and saying, ‘Come see us after Christmas,’ hoping we’re at the bonus money level.”
