Honda has regained its place among the top-five brands in the latest National Automobile Dealers Association's Dealer Attitude Survey, following an unusual drop to No. 6 in the previous results.
Honda's slip from the top ranks marks the first time it was missing since 2015.
NADA surveys its dealer members twice a year to let them express their sentiment toward their brands for a specific point in time.
This most recent survey was conducted in July, reflecting dealer feelings this summer.
Despite perennially positive results that placed the brand between the No. 3 and No. 5 spots over the past six years, Honda's slip to No. 6 in NADA's 2022 winter survey was largely due to low product availability.
"It is not surprising to see Honda back in the top five," said Jessica Fini, a spokesperson for the Honda brand. "We continue to have transparent and ongoing communication with our dealer body as we work through a challenging production situation."
