SALE AND SERVICING AGREEMENT, dated as of May 4, 2006 (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified and in effect from time to time, this “Agreement”), by and between CAPITAL ONE AUTO FINANCE TRUST 2006-A, a Delaware statutory trust (the “Issuer”), CAPITAL ONE AUTO RECEIVABLES, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as seller (the “Seller”), CAPITAL ONE AUTO FINANCE, INC., a Texas corporation (“COAF”), as servicer (in such capacity, the “Servicer”), and JPMORGAN CHASE BANK, N.A., a banking association organized under the laws of the United States, as indenture trustee (the “Indenture Trustee”).

WHEREAS, the Seller is willing to sell such portfolio of motor vehicle receivables and related property to the Issuer; and

WHEREAS, COAF is willing to service such motor vehicle receivables and related property on behalf of the Issuer;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants herein contained, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:

ARTICLE I

ARTICLE II

CONVEYANCE OF TRANSFERRED ASSETS

SECTION 2.1 Conveyance of Transferred Assets. (a) In consideration of the Issuer’s sale and delivery to, or upon the order of, the Seller of all of the Notes and the Residual Interest on the Closing Date, the Seller does hereby irrevocably sell, transfer, assign and otherwise convey to the Issuer without recourse (subject to the obligations herein) all right, title and interest of the Seller, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in, to and under the Initial Transferred Assets, identified in an Assignment substantially in the form of Exhibit C delivered on the Closing Date. The sale, transfer, assignment and conveyance made hereunder does not constitute and is not intended to result in an assumption by the Issuer of any obligation of the Seller or any Originator to the Obligors, the Dealers or any other Person in connection with the Receivables or the other assets and properties conveyed hereunder or any agreement, document or instrument related thereto.

(b) In consideration of the payment of the Receivables Purchase Price from the Pre-Funding Account, on each Funding Date the Seller does hereby sell, transfer, assign, and otherwise convey to the Issuer without recourse (subject to the obligations herein) all right, title and interest of the Seller, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in, to and under the Subsequent Transferred Assets, identified in an Assignment substantially in the form of Exhibit C delivered on such Funding Date. The purchase of the Subsequent Transferred Assets on each Funding Date shall be made in accordance with the Purchase Agreement and this Agreement. The sale, transfer, assignment and conveyance made hereunder does not constitute and is not intended to result in an assumption by the Issuer of any obligation of the Seller or any Originator to the Obligors, the Dealers or any other Person in connection with the Receivables or the other assets and properties conveyed hereunder or any agreement, document or instrument related thereto.

SECTION 2.2 Representations and Warranties of the Seller as to Each Receivable. On the date hereof, with respect to the Initial Receivables, or on each Funding Date, with respect to the Subsequent Receivables, the Seller hereby makes the representations and warranties set forth on Schedule I to the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Note Insurer as to the Initial Receivables and Subsequent Receivables, as applicable, sold, transferred, assigned, and otherwise conveyed to the Issuer under this Agreement on which such representations and warranties the Issuer relies in acquiring the Receivables. The representations and warranties as to each Receivable shall survive the Grant of the Receivables by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture. Notwithstanding any statement to the contrary contained herein or in any other Transaction Document, the Seller shall not be required to notify any insurer with respect to any Insurance Policy obtained by an Obligor.

SECTION 2.3 Repurchase upon Breach. Upon discovery by any party hereto of a breach of any of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 2.2 with respect to any Receivable at the time such representations and warranties were made which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Noteholders in such Receivable, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice thereof to the other parties hereto; provided, that delivery of the Servicer’s Certificate shall be deemed to constitute prompt notice by the Servicer and the Issuer of such breach; provided, further, that the

 

2


failure to give such notice shall not affect any obligation of the Seller hereunder. If the breach materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Noteholders in such Receivable, then the Seller shall either (a) correct or cure such breach or (b) repurchase such Receivable from the Issuer, in either case on or before the Payment Date following the end of the Collection Period which includes the 60th day after the date the Seller became aware or was notified of such breach. Any such purchase by the Seller shall be at a price equal to the Repurchase Price. In consideration for such repurchase, the Seller shall make (or shall cause to be made) a payment to the Issuer equal to the Repurchase Price by depositing such amount into the Collection Account prior to noon, New York City time on such date of repurchase. Upon payment of such Repurchase Price by the Seller, the Indenture Trustee, on behalf of the Indenture Secured Parties, and the Issuer shall release and shall execute and deliver a Seller Re-Assignment and Seller Cross Receipt substantially in the forms of Exhibit H-1 and H-2, respectively, and any such other instruments of release, transfer or assignment in each case without recourse or representation, as may be reasonably requested by the Seller to evidence such release, transfer or assignment or more effectively vest in the Seller or its designee all of the Issuer’s and Indenture Trustee’s rights in any Receivable and related Transferred Assets repurchased pursuant to this Section 2.3. It is understood and agreed that, unless the Seller fails to repurchase (or fails to enforce the obligation of COAF under the Purchase Agreement to repurchase) any Receivable as described above, the right to cause the Seller to repurchase (or to enforce the obligations of COAF under the Purchase Agreement to repurchase) any Receivable as described above shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such breach available to the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee. Neither the Owner Trustee nor the Indenture Trustee will have any duty to conduct an affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the repurchase of any Receivable pursuant to this Section 2.3.

SECTION 2.4 Custody of Receivable Files.

(a) Custody. The Issuer and the Indenture Trustee, upon the execution and delivery of this Agreement, hereby revocably appoint the Servicer, and the Servicer hereby accepts such appointment, to act as the agent of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee as custodian of the following documents or instruments, which are hereby or will hereby be constructively delivered to the Indenture Trustee (or its agent or designee), as pledgee of the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture with respect to each Receivable (the “Receivable Files”):

(i) the fully executed original, electronically authenticated original or authoritative copy of the Contract (in each case within the meaning of the UCC) related to such Receivable, including any written amendments or extensions thereto;

(ii) the original credit application or a photocopy thereof to the extent held in paper form;

(iii) the original Certificate of Title or, if not yet received, evidence that an application therefore has been submitted with the appropriate authority, a guaranty of title from a Dealer or such other document (electronic or otherwise, as used in the applicable jurisdiction) that the Servicer keeps on file, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, evidencing the security interest of the applicable Originator in the Financed Vehicle; provided, however, that in lieu of being held in the Receivable File, the Certificate of Title may be held by a third party service provider engaged by the Servicer to obtain and/or hold Certificates of Title; and

 

3


(iv) any and all other documents that the Servicer keeps on file, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, relating to a Receivable, an Obligor or a Financed Vehicle (but only to the extent applicable to such Receivable and only to the extent held in tangible paper form or electronic form).

(b) Safekeeping. The Servicer, in its capacity as custodian, shall hold the Receivable Files for the benefit of the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee. In performing its duties as custodian, the Servicer shall act in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices. In accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, the Servicer will conduct, or cause to be conducted, periodic audits of the Receivable Files held by it under this Agreement, and of the related accounts, records, and computer systems, in such a manner as would enable the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Indenture Trustee to verify the accuracy of the Servicer’s record keeping. The Servicer will promptly report to the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee any failure on its part to hold a material portion of the Receivable Files, maintain its accounts, records, and computer systems as herein provided or promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure. Nothing herein will be deemed to require an initial review or any periodic review by the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Indenture Trustee of the Receivable Files. The Servicer may, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, (i) maintain all or a portion of the Receivable Files in electronic form and (ii) maintain custody of all or any portion of the Receivable Files with one or more of its agents or designees.

(c) Maintenance of and Access to Records. The Servicer will maintain each Receivable File at one of its offices in the United States, or at such other location as specified to the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee by written notice not later than ninety (90) days after any change in location (it being understood that the Receivable Files, or any part thereof, may be maintained at the offices of any Person to whom the Servicer has delegated responsibilities in accordance with Section 6.5). The Servicer will make available to the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee or their duly authorized representatives, attorneys or auditors a list of locations of the Receivable Files upon request. The Servicer will provide access to the Receivable Files, and the related accounts records, and computer systems maintained by the Servicer at such times as the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Indenture Trustee direct, but only upon reasonable notice and during the normal business hours at the respective offices of the Servicer.

(d) Release of Documents. Upon written instructions from the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer will release or cause to be released any document in the Receivable Files to the Indenture Trustee, the Indenture Trustee’s agent or the Indenture Trustee’s designee, as the case may be, at such place or places as the Indenture Trustee may designate, as soon thereafter as is practicable. Any document so released will be handled by the Indenture Trustee with due care and returned to the Servicer for safekeeping as soon as the Indenture Trustee or its agent or designee, as the case may be, has no further need therefor.

 

4


(e) Instructions; Authority to Act. All instructions from the Indenture Trustee will be in writing and signed by an Authorized Officer of the Indenture Trustee, and the Servicer will be deemed to have received proper instructions with respect to the Receivable Files upon its receipt of such written instructions.

(f) Custodian’s Indemnification. Subject to Section 6.2, the Servicer as custodian will indemnify the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, compensatory damages, payments, costs or expenses of any kind whatsoever that may be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Indenture Trustee as the result of any improper act or omission in any way relating to the maintenance and custody by the Servicer as custodian of the Receivable Files; provided, however, that the Servicer will not be liable to (i) the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Note Insurer for any portion of any such amount resulting from the willful misconduct, bad faith or negligence of the Indenture Trustee, the Note Insurer or the Issuer, respectively, or (ii) the Indenture Trustee for any portion of any such amount resulting from the failure of the Indenture Trustee, the Indenture Trustee’s agent or the Indenture Trustee’s designee to handle with due care any Certificate of Title or other document released to the Indenture Trustee, the Indenture Trustee’s agent or the Indenture Trustee’s designee pursuant to Section 2.4(d).

(g) Effective Period and Termination. The Servicer’s appointment as custodian will become effective as of the Initial Cut-Off Date and will continue in full force and effect until terminated pursuant to this Section. If COAF resigns as Servicer in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or if all of the rights and obligations of the Servicer have been terminated under Section 7.1, the appointment of the Servicer as custodian hereunder may be terminated by the Indenture Trustee or by the Controlling Party, in the same manner as the Indenture Trustee or the Controlling Party may terminate the rights and obligations of the Servicer under Section 7.1. After any termination of such appointment, the Servicer will promptly deliver to the Indenture Trustee or the Indenture Trustee’s agent the Receivable Files and the related accounts and records maintained by the Servicer at such place or places as the Indenture Trustee or the Controlling Party may reasonably designate.

SECTION 2.5 Funding Events.

(a) A funding event (each, a “Funding Event”) shall occur upon a Funding Date and in accordance with the requirements of this Section.

(b) During the Funding Period, the Issuer shall, on the Funding Dates, (i) acquire Subsequent Transferred Assets from the Seller pursuant to Section 2.1(b) (and the Seller shall acquire such Subsequent Transferred Assets from COAF pursuant to the Purchase Agreement) and (ii) Grant all of the Issuer’s right, title and interest in, to and under such Subsequent Transferred Assets to the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Indenture Secured Parties. Such Subsequent Transferred Assets shall be acquired at the option of the Issuer upon instruction from the Servicer; provided that such Subsequent Transferred Assets may not be acquired through the Pre-Funding Account without the consent of the Note Insurer; provided, however, that the giving or withholding of such consent shall be based solely on the characteristics of the Subsequent Transferred Assets in relation to the Initial Transferred Assets.

 

5


(c) The following procedures shall be followed to effect a Funding Event:

(i) COAF will package and forward or cause to be packaged and forwarded to the Servicer (in the event that COAF is not the Servicer) the Receivables File with respect to each Subsequent Receivable;

(ii) At least three (3) days prior to the Funding Date, the Issuer shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer and the Note Insurer a Notice of Funding Date (substantially in the form of Exhibit A hereto);

(iii) On or prior to the Funding Date, the Issuer shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer and the Note Insurer the following:

(1) the Schedule of Receivables delivered by the Seller for such Funding Date; and

(2) a Joint Officer’s Certificate of COAF, the Seller and the Issuer (substantially in the form of Exhibit B hereto); and

(iv) On the Funding Date, the Seller and the Issuer shall execute an Assignment substantially in the form of Exhibit C hereto.

(d) Upon satisfaction of the above requirements, the Indenture Trustee will, on the applicable Funding Date, withdraw from the Pre-Funding Account an amount equal to the Receivables Purchase Price for the Subsequent Receivables acquired on such Funding Date and shall forward such funds (less amounts required to be deposited into the Reserve Account as described below) to the Seller (or to COAF on behalf of the Seller) or its designee, in cash by federal wire transfer funds, pursuant to the written directions provided to the Indenture Trustee in the Notice of Funding Date. The Indenture Trustee, on behalf of the Seller, shall deposit into the Reserve Account from amounts which would otherwise be released to the Seller from the Pre-Funding Account, an amount equal to the Subsequent Reserve Account Deposit Amount for such Funding Date.

SECTION 2.6 Certificate of Title Repurchase Event. The Servicer shall inform the Issuer, the Seller, the Note Insurer, the Indenture Trustee and the Swap Counterparty promptly, in writing, upon the occurrence of the day that is 10 Business Days prior to the First Title Delivery Date of each Receivable for which no Certificate of Title has been delivered to the Servicer or its agent as of such day. Upon the occurrence of a Certificate of Title Repurchase Event with respect to any Receivable, the Seller shall purchase such Receivable from the Issuer on any date occurring on or before the Payment Date following the end of the Collection Period during which such Certificate of Title Repurchase Event occurs. Any such purchase by the Seller shall be at a price equal to the Repurchase Price. In consideration for such repurchase, the Seller shall make (or shall cause to be made) a payment to the Issuer equal to the Repurchase Price by depositing such amount into the Collection Account prior to noon, New York City time on such date of repurchase. Upon payment of such Repurchase Price by the Seller, the Indenture Trustee, on behalf of the Indenture Secured Parties, and the Issuer shall release and shall execute and deliver a Seller Re-Assignment and Seller Cross Receipt substantially in the forms of Exhibit H-1 and H-2, respectively, and any such other instruments of release, transfer or assignment, in

 

6


each case without recourse or representation, as may be reasonably requested by the Seller to evidence such release, transfer or assignment or more effectively vest in the Seller or its designee all of the Issuer’s and Indenture Trustee’s rights in any Receivable and related Transferred Assets repurchased pursuant to this Section 2.6. It is understood and agreed that, unless the Seller fails to repurchase (or fails to enforce the obligation of COAF under the Purchase Agreement to repurchase) any Receivable as described above, the right to cause the Seller to repurchase (or to enforce the obligations of COAF under the Purchase Agreement to repurchase) any Receivable as described above shall constitute the sole remedy with respect to a Certificate of Title Repurchase Event available to the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee. Neither the Owner Trustee nor the Indenture Trustee will have any duty to conduct an affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the repurchase of any Receivable pursuant to this Section 2.6.

ARTICLE III

ADMINISTRATION AND SERVICING OF

RECEIVABLES AND TRUST PROPERTY

SECTION 3.1 Duties of Servicer.

(a) The Servicer is hereby appointed by the Issuer and authorized to act as agent for the Issuer and in such capacity shall manage, service, administer and make collections on the Receivables, and perform the other actions required by the Servicer under this Agreement. The Servicer agrees that its servicing of the Receivables will be carried out in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, using the degree of skill and attention that the Servicer exercises with respect to all comparable motor vehicle receivables that it services for itself or others. The Servicer’s duties will include collection and posting of all payments, responding to inquiries of Obligors on such Receivables, investigating delinquencies, sending invoices or payment coupons to Obligors, reporting any required tax information to Obligors, accounting for Collections and furnishing monthly and annual statements to the Indenture Trustee and the Note Insurer with respect to distributions and performing the other duties specified herein. The Servicer hereby accepts such appointment and authorization and agrees to perform the duties of Servicer with respect to the Receivables set forth herein.

(b) The Servicer will follow its Customary Servicing Practices and will have full power and authority to do any and all things in connection with such managing, servicing, administration and collection that it may deem necessary or desirable. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer is hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself, the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Noteholders, the Note Insurer, the Residual Interestholders, or any of them, any and all instruments of satisfaction or cancellation, or partial or full release or discharge, and all other comparable instruments, with respect to such Receivables or to the Financed Vehicles securing such Receivables. The Servicer is hereby authorized to commence, in its own name or in the name of the Issuer, a legal proceeding to enforce a Receivable or to commence or participate in any other legal proceeding (including a bankruptcy proceeding) relating to or involving a Receivable, an Obligor or a Financed Vehicle. If the Servicer commences a legal proceeding to enforce a Receivable, the Issuer will thereupon be deemed to have automatically assigned such Receivable to the Servicer solely for purposes of commencing or participating in any such proceeding as a

 

7


party or claimant, and the Servicer is authorized and empowered by the Issuer to execute and deliver in the Servicer’s name any notices, demands, claims, complaints, responses, affidavits or other documents or instruments in connection with any such proceeding. If in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it is held that the Servicer may not enforce a Receivable on the ground that it is not a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Receivable, the Issuer will, at the Servicer’s expense and direction, take steps to enforce the Receivable, including bringing suit in its name or the name of the Indenture Trustee. The Issuer will furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney and other documents reasonably necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties hereunder. The Servicer, at its expense, will obtain on behalf of the Issuer all licenses, if any, required by the laws of any jurisdiction to be held by the Issuer in connection with ownership of the Receivables, and will make all filings and pay all fees as may be required in connection therewith during the term hereof.

(c) The Servicer hereby agrees that upon its resignation and the appointment of a successor Servicer hereunder, the Servicer will terminate its activities as Servicer hereunder in accordance with Section 7.1, and, in any case, in a manner which the Controlling Party or the Indenture Trustee with the consent of the Controlling Party reasonably determines will facilitate the transition of the performance of such activities to such successor Servicer, and the Servicer shall cooperate with and assist such successor Servicer.

(d) So long as no Note Insurer Default has occurred and is continuing, the Servicer shall not change its Customary Servicing Practices without the consent of the Note Insurer if the Servicer determines that such a change would have a material adverse effect on the interests of the Note Insurer or the Noteholders.

SECTION 3.2 Collection of Receivable Payments. The Servicer will make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Receivables as and when the same become due in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices and will otherwise act with respect to the Receivables and the Insurance Policies in such manner as will, in the reasonable judgment of the Servicer, maximize the net amount to be received by the Issuer with respect thereto. Subject to Section 3.5, the Servicer may grant extensions, rebates, deferrals, amendments, modifications or adjustments with respect to any Receivable in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices; provided, however, that if the Servicer extends the date for final payment by the Obligor of any Receivable (an “Extension”) beyond the last day of the Collection Period immediately prior to the Class A-4 Final Scheduled Payment Date, it will promptly purchase such Receivable in the manner provided in Section 3.6; provided, further, however, that in any given three (3) month period, the average percentage of Receivables that have been the subject of an Extension during each of those three months (by number of Receivables at the beginning of each month) shall not exceed 4.00% (or such other percentage as may be agreed to by the Controlling Party). The Servicer may in its discretion waive any late payment charge or any other fees that may be collected in the ordinary course of servicing a Receivable. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Servicer may refinance any Receivable by accepting a new promissory note from the related Obligor and depositing the full outstanding Principal Balance of such Receivable plus any accrued interest on such Receivable into the Collection Account.

SECTION 3.3 Repossession of Financed Vehicles. On behalf of the Issuer, the Servicer will use commercially reasonable efforts, consistent with its Customary Servicing Practices, to repossess or otherwise convert the ownership of and liquidate the Financed Vehicle securing any Receivable as to which the Servicer has determined eventual payment in full is unlikely; provided, however, that the Servicer may elect not to repossess a Financed Vehicle if in its good faith judgment it determines that repossession will not increase the amounts described in clauses (a) through (c) of the definition of Liquidation Proceeds by an amount greater than the expense of such repossession or that the proceeds ultimately recoverable with respect to such Receivable would be increased by forbearance. The Servicer is authorized as it deems necessary or advisable, consistent with its Customary Servicing Practices, to make reasonable efforts to realize upon any recourse to any Dealer and selling the related Financed Vehicle at public or private sale. The foregoing will be subject to the provision that, in any case in which the Financed Vehicle has suffered damage, the Servicer shall not be required to expend funds in connection with the repair or the repossession of such Financed Vehicle unless it determines in its sole discretion that such repair and/or repossession will increase the amounts described in clauses (a) through (c) of the definition of Liquidation Proceeds with respect to such Financed Vehicle by an amount greater than the amount of such expenses.

SECTION 3.4 Maintenance of Security Interests in Financed Vehicles. The Servicer will, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, take such steps as are necessary to maintain perfection of the security interest created by each Receivable in the related Financed Vehicle. The Issuer hereby authorizes the Servicer to take such steps as are necessary to re-perfect such security interest on behalf of the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee in the event of the relocation of a Financed Vehicle or for any other reason.

SECTION 3.5 Covenants of Servicer.

(a) Lien in Force. The Servicer will not (i) release the Financed Vehicle securing each such Receivable from the security interest granted by such Receivable in whole or in part except in the event of payment in full by or on behalf of the Obligor thereunder or payment in full less a deficiency which the Servicer would not attempt to collect in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices or in connection with repossession or except as may be required by an insurer in order to receive proceeds from any Insurance Policy covering such Financed Vehicle or (ii) reduce the Contract Rate with respect to any Receivable other than as required by applicable law or (iii) reduce the Principal Balance with respect to any Receivable other than (A) as required by applicable law, (B) in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, in connection with a settlement in the event the Receivable becomes a Defaulted Receivable or (C) in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, in connection with a Cram Down Loss relating to such Receivable.

(b) No Impairment. The Servicer will do nothing to materially impair the rights of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders in the Receivables or the Insurance Policies except as otherwise expressly provided in the Transaction Documents.

(c) Restrictions on Liens. The Servicer will not (i) create, incur or suffer to exist, or agree to create, incur or suffer to exist, or consent to cause or permit in the future (upon the happening of a contingency or otherwise) the creation, incurrence or existence of any Lien or

 

9


restriction on transferability of the Receivables except for the lien in favor of the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Indenture Secured Parties, and the restrictions on transferability imposed by this Agreement or (ii) file or authorize for filing under the UCC of any jurisdiction any financing statement which names the Servicer as a debtor, or sign any security agreement authorizing any secured party thereunder to file such financing statement, with respect to the Receivables, except in each case any such instrument solely securing the rights and preserving the lien of the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Indenture Secured Parties.

SECTION 3.6 Purchase of Receivables Upon Breach. Upon discovery by any party hereto of a breach of any of the obligations set forth in Section 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 or 3.5 which materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer, the Note Insurer, the Indenture Trustee or the Noteholders in any Receivable, the party discovering such breach shall give prompt written notice thereof to the other parties hereto; provided, that the delivery of the Servicer’s Certificate shall be deemed to constitute prompt notice by the Servicer and the Issuer of such breach; provided, further, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect any obligation of the Servicer under this Section 3.6. If the breach materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Noteholders in such Receivable, then the Servicer shall either (a) correct or cure such breach or (b) purchase such Receivable from the Issuer, in either case on or before the Payment Date following the end of the Collection Period which includes the 60th day after the date the Servicer became aware or was notified of such breach. Any such purchase by the Servicer shall be at a price equal to the Repurchase Price. In consideration for such repurchase, the Servicer shall make (or shall cause to be made) a payment to the Issuer equal to the Repurchase Price by depositing such amount into the Collection Account prior to noon, New York City time on such date of repurchase. Upon payment of such Repurchase Price by the Servicer, the Indenture Trustee, on behalf of the Indenture Secured Parties, and the Issuer shall release and shall execute and deliver a Servicer Re-Assignment and Servicer Cross Receipt substantially in the forms of Exhibit I-1 and I-2, respectively, and any such other instruments of release, transfer or assignment hereto, in each case without recourse or representation, as may be reasonably requested by the Servicer to evidence such release, transfer or assignment or more effectively vest in the Servicer or its designee all of the Issuer’s and Indenture Trustee’s rights in any Receivable and related Transferred Assets repurchased pursuant to this Section 3.6. It is understood and agreed that, unless the Servicer fails to purchase any Receivable as described above, the obligation of the Servicer to purchase any Receivable as described above shall constitute the sole remedy respecting such breach available to the Issuer, the Note Insurer, the Swap Counterparty and the Indenture Trustee; provided, however, that the Servicer will indemnify the Issuer, the Note Insurer, the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee and the Noteholders from and against all costs, expenses, losses, damages, claims and liabilities, including reasonable fees and expenses of counsel, which may be asserted against or incurred by any of them as a result of third party claims arising out of the events or facts giving rise to such breach. The indemnification provided pursuant to this section will survive the removal or resignation of the Servicer, the Note Insurer, the Swap Counterparty and /or the Indenture Trustee.

SECTION 3.7 Servicing Fee. On each Payment Date, the Issuer shall pay to the Servicer the Servicing Fee in accordance with Section 4.4 for the immediately preceding Collection Period as compensation for its services. In addition, the Servicer will be entitled to retain all Supplemental Servicing Fees. The Servicer will be required to pay all expenses

 

10


incurred by it in connection with its activities under this Agreement (including taxes imposed on the Servicer, expenses incurred in connection with distributions and reports made by the Servicer to Noteholders or the Note Insurer and, to the extent not provided for pursuant to Section 4.4, all other fees and out-of-pocket expenses of the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee, except taxes levied or assessed against the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee, and claims against the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, or the Indenture Trustee in respect of indemnification, which taxes and claims in respect of indemnification against the Issuer are expressly stated to be for the account of COAF). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Servicer is not COAF, a successor to COAF as Servicer will not be liable for taxes levied or assessed against the Issuer or claims against the Issuer in respect of indemnification, the fees referred to above and expenses referred to above.

SECTION 3.8 Servicer’s Certificate. On the Determination Date preceding each Payment Date, the Servicer shall deliver to the Indenture Trustee and each Paying Agent, with a copy to each of the Rating Agencies, the Swap Counterparty and the Note Insurer, a Servicer’s Certificate in substantially the form set forth in Exhibit D. At the sole option of the Servicer, each Servicer’s Certificate may be delivered in electronic or hard copy format.

SECTION 3.9 Annual Officer’s Certificate; Notice of Servicer Termination Event. (a) The Servicer will deliver to the Rating Agencies, the Swap Counterparty, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Note Insurer, on or before March 30 of each year, beginning on March 30, 2007, an Officer’s Certificate of the Servicer (with appropriate insertions) providing such information as is required under Item 1123 of Regulation AB.

(b) The Servicer will deliver to the Issuer, the Swap Counterparty, the Note Insurer, the Indenture Trustee and each Rating Agency promptly after having obtained knowledge thereof, but in no event later than five (5) Business Days after having obtained such knowledge, written notice in an Officer’s Certificate of any event which with the giving of notice or lapse of time, or both, would become a Servicer Termination Event.

(c) The Servicer will deliver to the Issuer and the Note Insurer, on or before March 30 of each year, beginning on March 30, 2007, a report regarding the Servicer’s assessment of compliance with the Servicing Criteria during the immediately preceding calendar year, as required under paragraph (b) of Rule 13a-18 and Rule 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122 of Regulation AB.

SECTION 3.10 Annual Servicing Report of Independent Public Accountants. On or before the 90th day following the end of each fiscal year, beginning with the fiscal year ending December 31, 2006, the Servicer shall cause a firm of nationally recognized independent public accountants (who may also render other services to the Servicer, the Seller or their respective Affiliates) to furnish to the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer, the Seller, the Swap Counterparty, the Note Insurer and each Rating Agency each attestation report on assessments of compliance with the Servicing Criteria with respect to the Servicer or any affiliate thereof during the related fiscal year delivered by such accountants pursuant to paragraph (c) of Rule 13a-18 or Rule 15d-18 of the Exchange Act and Item 1122 of Regulation AB.

SECTION 3.11 Servicer Expenses. The Servicer will be required to pay from its own funds all expenses (other than expenses described in the definition of Liquidation Proceeds) incurred by it in connection with its activities hereunder, including fees and disbursements of the Indenture Trustee, Owner Trustee (in accordance with Section 8.1 of the Trust Agreement), independent accountants, taxes imposed on the Servicer and expenses incurred in connection with distributions and reports to the Noteholders and the Residual Interestholders.

SECTION 3.12 Insurance. The Servicer may sue to enforce or collect upon the Insurance Policies, in its own name, if possible, or as agent of the Issuer. If the Servicer elects to commence a legal proceeding to enforce an Insurance Policy, the act of commencement will be deemed to be an automatic assignment of the rights of the Issuer under such Insurance Policy to the Servicer for purposes of collection only. If, however, in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding it is held that the Servicer may not enforce an Insurance Policy on the grounds that it is not a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Insurance Policy, the Issuer and/or the Indenture Trustee, at the Servicer’s expense, will take such steps as the Servicer deems necessary to enforce such Insurance Policy, including bringing suit in its name or the name of the Issuer and the Owner Trustee and/or the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders.

SECTION 3.13 1934 Act Filings. The Issuer hereby authorizes the Servicer and the Seller, or either of them, to prepare, sign, certify and file any and all reports, statements and information respecting the Issuer and/or the Notes required to be filed pursuant to the Exchange Act, and the rules thereunder.

SECTION 4.2 Remittances. The Servicer shall deposit or cause to be deposited an amount equal to all Collections into the Collection Account within two Business Days after receipt; provided, however, that if the Monthly Remittance Condition is satisfied, then the Servicer shall not be required to deposit into the Collection Account an amount equal to the Collections received during any Collection Period until noon, New York City time, on the following Payment Date. The “Monthly Remittance Condition” shall be deemed to be satisfied if (i) COAF or one of its Affiliates is the Servicer, (ii) no Servicer Termination Event has occurred and is continuing and (iii) Capital One Financial Corporation has a short-term debt rating of at least “Prime-1” from Moody’s and “A-1” from Standard & Poor’s.

(e) If the Swap Counterparty is required to post collateral under the terms of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement, the Indenture Trustee shall establish the Swap Collateral Account (the “Swap Collateral Account”) over which the Indenture Trustee shall have exclusive control and the sole right of withdrawal, and in which no Person other than the Indenture Trustee, the Noteholders and the Note Insurer shall have any legal or beneficial interest. The Indenture Trustee shall deposit all collateral received from the Swap Counterparty under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement into the Swap Collateral Account. Any and all funds at any time on deposit in, or otherwise to the credit of, the Swap Collateral Account shall be held in trust by the Indenture Trustee for the benefit of the Noteholders and the Note Insurer. The only permitted withdrawal from or application of funds on deposit in, or otherwise to the credit of, the Swap Collateral Account shall be (i) for application to obligations of the Swap Counterparty to the Issuer under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement in accordance with the terms of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement or (ii) to return collateral to the Swap Counterparty when and as required by the Interest Rate Swap Agreement.

(f) If at any time the Interest Rate Swap Agreement becomes subject to early termination due to the occurrence of an “Event of Default” or “Termination Event” (as defined in the Interest Rate Swap Agreement), the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee shall use reasonable efforts (following the expiration of any applicable grace period) to enforce the rights of the Issuer thereunder as may be permitted by the terms of the Interest Rate Swap Agreement and consistent with the terms hereof and subject to any rights of the Note Insurer herein or under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement. To the extent not fully paid from Swap Replacement Proceeds, any Swap Termination Payment owed by the Issuer to the Swap Counterparty under the Interest Rate Swap Agreement shall be payable to the Swap Counterparty in installments made on each following Payment Date until paid in full in accordance with the order of priority specified in Section 4.4(a). To the extent that the Swap Replacement Proceeds exceed any such Swap Termination Payments (or if there are no Swap Termination Payments due to the Swap Counterparty), the Swap Replacement Proceeds in excess of such Swap Termination Payments, if any, shall be included in Available Funds and allocated and applied in accordance with the order of priority specified in Section 4.4(a) on the following Payment Date.

22


(d) The Seller’s obligations under this Section 5.2 are obligations solely of the Seller and will not constitute a claim against the Seller to the extent that the Seller does not have funds sufficient to make payment of such obligations.

The Seller will provide notice of any merger, conversion, consolidation, or succession pursuant to this Section 5.3 to the Rating Agencies and the Note Insurer. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the execution of the foregoing agreement of assumption and compliance with clauses (x) and (y) of this Section 5.3 will be conditions to the consummation of any of the transactions referred to in clauses (i), (ii) or (iii) of this Section 5.3 in which the Seller is not the surviving entity.

SECTION 5.4 Limitation on Liability of Seller and Others.

(c) No Consent Required.

The Servicer will compensate the Indenture Trustee and indemnify the Indenture Trustee to the extent and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 6.7 of the Indenture, except to the extent that any cost, expense, loss, claim, damage or liability arises out of or is incurred in connection with the performance by the Indenture Trustee of the duties of a Successor Servicer hereunder.

If the Servicer has made any indemnity payments pursuant to this Section 6.2 and the Person to or on behalf of whom such payments are made thereafter collects any of such amounts from others, such Person will promptly repay such amounts to the Servicer, without interest.

The Servicer and any director, officer or employee or agent of the Servicer may rely in good faith on any Opinion of Counsel or on any Officer’s Certificate of the Seller or certificate of auditors believed to be genuine and to have been signed by the proper party in respect of any matters arising under this Agreement.

(b) Except as provided in this Agreement, the Servicer will not be under any obligation to appear in, prosecute, or defend any legal action that is not incidental to its duties to service the Receivables in accordance with this Agreement, and that in its opinion may involve it in any expense or liability; provided, however, that the Servicer may undertake any reasonable action that it may deem necessary or desirable in respect of this Agreement and the rights and duties of the parties to this Agreement and the interests of the Noteholders and the Residual Interestholders under this Agreement.

28

SECTION 6.6 COAF Not to Resign as Servicer. Subject to the provisions of Sections 6.3 and 6.5, (a) COAF will not resign from the obligations and duties hereby imposed on it as Servicer under this Agreement except upon determination that the performance of its duties under this Agreement by reason of a change in applicable legal requirements is no longer permissible under applicable law and (b) COAF will not assign this Agreement or any of its rights, powers, duties or obligations hereunder.

ARTICLE VII

TERMINATION OF SERVICER

SECTION 7.1 Termination of Servicer.

(a) If a Servicer Termination Event shall have occurred and be continuing, the Indenture Trustee shall, at the direction of the Controlling Party, by notice given to the Servicer, the Owner Trustee, the Issuer, the Administrator, the Noteholders, the Note Insurer, the Swap Counterparty and each Rating Agency, terminate the rights and obligations of the Servicer under this Agreement with respect to the Receivables. In the event the Servicer is removed or resigns as Servicer with respect to servicing the Receivables, the Indenture Trustee, acting at the direction of the Controlling Party, shall appoint a successor Servicer. Upon the Servicer’s receipt of notice of termination, such Servicer will continue to perform its functions as Servicer under this Agreement only until the date specified in such termination notice or, if no such date is specified in such termination notice, until receipt of such notice. If a successor Servicer has not been appointed at the time when the outgoing Servicer ceases to act as Servicer in accordance with this Section 7.1, the Indenture Trustee without further action will automatically be appointed the successor Servicer. Notwithstanding the above, the Indenture Trustee, if it is legally unable or is unwilling to so act, will appoint, or petition a court of competent jurisdiction to appoint a successor Servicer. Any successor Servicer shall be an established institution

 

29


having a net worth of not less than $100,000,000 (or such lesser amount that the Note Insurer may consent in writing) and whose regular business includes the servicing of comparable motor vehicle receivables having an aggregate outstanding principal amount of not less than $50,000,000.

(b) The Controlling Party may waive any Servicer Termination Event. Upon any such waiver, such Servicer Termination Event shall cease to exist and be deemed to have been cured and not to have occurred, and any Servicer Termination Event arising therefrom shall be deemed to have been cured and not to have occurred for every purpose of this Agreement, but no such waiver shall extend to any prior, subsequent or other Servicer Termination Event or impair any right consequent thereto.

(c) If replaced, the Servicer agrees that it will use commercially reasonable efforts at its own expense to effect the orderly and efficient transfer of the servicing of the Receivables to a successor Servicer.

(d) Upon the effectiveness of the assumption by the successor Servicer of its duties pursuant to this Section 7.1, the successor Servicer shall be the successor in all respects to the Servicer in its capacity as Servicer under this Agreement with respect to the Receivables, and shall be subject to all the responsibilities, duties and liabilities relating thereto, except with respect to the obligations of the predecessor Servicer that survive its termination as Servicer, including indemnification obligations as set forth in Section 6.2(e). In such event, the Indenture Trustee and the Owner Trustee are hereby authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of the predecessor Servicer, as attorney-in-fact or otherwise, any and all documents and other instruments, and to do or accomplish all other acts or things necessary or appropriate to effect the purposes of such termination and replacement of the Servicer, whether to complete the transfer and endorsement of the Receivables and related documents, or otherwise. No Servicer shall resign or be relieved of its duties under this Agreement, as Servicer of the Receivables, until a newly appointed Servicer for the Receivables shall have assumed the responsibilities and obligations of the resigning or terminated Servicer under this Agreement.

In connection with such appointment, the Indenture Trustee may make such arrangements for the compensation of the successor Servicer out of Available Funds as it and such successor Servicer will agree; provided, however, that no such compensation will be in excess of the amount paid to the predecessor Servicer under this Agreement.

SECTION 7.2 Notification to Noteholders. Upon any termination of, or appointment of a successor to, the Servicer pursuant to this Article VII, the Indenture Trustee will give prompt written notice thereof to the Owner Trustee, the Issuer, the Note Insurer, the Administrator, each Rating Agency and to the Noteholders at their respective addresses of record.

The purchase price for the Trust Estate shall equal the Redemption Price (the “Optional Purchase Price”), which amount shall be deposited by the Servicer into the Collection Account on the Redemption Date.

THE NOTE INSURANCE POLICY

SECTION 9.1 Claims Under Note Insurance Policy.

(a) In the event that the Servicer’s Certificate with respect to any Determination Date states that there is a Deficiency Amount, or in the event that the Indenture Trustee has received a certified copy of a final, nonappealable order of an appropriate court or other body exercising jurisdiction of any Preference Amount, the Indenture Trustee shall furnish to the Note Insurer no later than noon, New York City time, on the first Business Day following the Indenture Trustee’s receipt of such Servicer’s Certificate or certified copy, as applicable, a complete notice substantially in the form of Exhibit A or Exhibit B, as applicable, to the Note Insurance Policy (a “Notice”) specifying the amount of the Deficiency Amount, provided, that if such Notice is received after noon, New York City time, on such Business Day, it will be deemed to be received before noon, New York City time, on the following Business Day. If any such Notice is not in proper form or is otherwise insufficient for the purpose of making a claim under the Note Insurance Policy, such Notice will be deemed not to have been received for purposes of making such claim, and the Insurer will promptly so advise the Indenture Trustee in writing and the Indenture Trustee may submit an amended or corrected Notice. If such an amended or corrected Notice is in proper form and is otherwise sufficient for the purpose of making a claim under the Note Insurance Policy, it will be deemed to have been timely received on the Business Day of such resubmission; provided, that if such notice is received after noon, New York City time, it shall be deemed to be received before noon, New York City time, on the following Business Day.

(b) The Indenture Trustee shall establish and maintain an Eligible Account for the benefit of the Noteholders for the exclusive use as an account into which to deposit any proceeds of the Note Insurance Policy (the “Insurance Account”). Upon receipt of an Insured Payment from the Insurer, the Indenture Trustee shall deposit such Insured Payment in the Insurance Account. All amounts on deposit in the Insurance Account shall remain uninvested. On each Payment Date, the Indenture Trustee shall return any money in the Insurance Account which does not constitute an Insured Payment (as defined in the Note Insurance Policy) to the Note Insurer. The Indenture Trustee shall distribute on each Payment Date, to the Noteholders, the Insured Payment for such Payment Date from the Insurance Account in accordance with the priorities set forth in Section 4.4(a).

(c) The Indenture Trustee will (i) receive as attorney-in-fact of each Noteholder any Insured Payment from the Note Insurer and (ii) distribute such Insured Payment

 

31


as set forth in Section 9.1(b). Any and all Insured Payments disbursed by the Indenture Trustee shall not be considered payment by the Issuer with respect to the Notes, and shall not discharge the obligations of the Issuer with respect thereto. The Note Insurer shall, upon any payment pursuant to the Note Insurance Policy, in furtherance and not in limitation of its equitable right of subrogation and its rights under the Insurance Agreement, to the extent it makes any payment with respect to the Notes, become subrogated to the rights of any Noteholder to receive any and all amounts due in respect of the Insured Obligations as to which such payment was made. The Note Insurer shall be a co-beneficiary of the Indenture Trustee’s lien under the Indenture. Subject to and conditioned upon any payment with respect to the Notes by or on behalf of the Note Insurer, the Indenture Trustee shall assign to the Insurer all rights to the payment of interest or principal with respect to the Notes which are then due for payment to the extent of all payments made by the Note Insurer, and the Note Insurer may exercise any option, vote, right, power or the like with respect to the Notes to the extent that it has made payment pursuant to the Note Insurance Policy. The foregoing subrogation will in all cases be subject to the rights of the Noteholders to receive all Scheduled Payments (as defined in the Note Insurance Policy) in respect of the Notes.

(d) The Indenture Trustee will promptly notify the Note Insurer of any proceeding or the institution of any action (of which a Responsible Officer of the Indenture Trustee has actual knowledge) seeking the avoidance as a preferential transfer under applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, rehabilitation or similar law (a “Note Preference Claim”) of any payment made to a Noteholder that has been deemed a preferential transfer and recoverable, or theretofore recovered, from such Noteholder pursuant to Title 11 of United States Code in accordance with an order of an appropriate court or other body. Each Noteholder, by its purchase of Notes, and the Indenture Trustee hereby agree that so long as the Note Insurer is the Controlling Party, the Note Insurer may at any time during the continuation of any proceeding relating to a Note Preference Claim direct all matters relating to such Note Preference Claim, including (i) the direction of any appeal of any order relating to any Note Preference Claim and (ii) the posting of any surety, supersedeas or performance bond pending any such appeal at the expense of the Note Insurer, but subject to reimbursement as provided in the Insurance Agreement. In addition, and without limitation of the foregoing, as set forth in Section 9.1(c), the Note Insurer will be subrogated to, and each Noteholder and the Indenture Trustee hereby delegate and assign, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the rights of the Indenture Trustee and each Noteholder in the conduct of any proceeding with respect to a Note Preference Claim, including all rights of any party to an adversary proceeding action with respect to any court order issued in connection with any such Note Preference Claim.

SECTION 9.2 Surrender of Note Insurance Policy. The Indenture Trustee shall surrender the Note Insurance Policy to the Note Insurer for cancellation upon the expiration of the Note Insurance Policy in accordance with the terms of the Note Insurance Policy.

(c) This Agreement may also be amended from time to time by the parties hereto, with the prior written consent of the Controlling Party, for the purpose of adding any provisions to or changing in any manner or eliminating any of the provisions of this Agreement or of modifying in any manner the rights of the Noteholders or the Note Insurer; provided that no such amendment shall (i) reduce the interest rate or principal amount of any Note or delay any Payment Date or the Final Scheduled Payment Date of any Note without the consent of the Holder of such Note, (ii) reduce the percentage of the Note Balance, the Holders of which are required to consent to any matter without the consent of the Holders of at least the percentage of the Note Balance which were required to consent to such matter before giving effect to such amendment; provided, further, that if the Note Insurer is not the Controlling Party, no amendment pursuant to this Section 10.1(c) shall materially and adversely affect the interests of

 

33


the Note Insurer without the prior written consent of the Note Insurer; provided, further, that such amendment shall not materially and adversely affect the rights or obligations of the Swap Counterparty under this Sale and Servicing Agreement unless (i) the Swap Counterparty shall have consented in writing to such amendment (and such consent shall be deemed to have been given if the Swap Counterparty does not object in writing within ten (10) Business Days after receipt of a written request for such consent) and (ii) the Rating Agency Condition is satisfied with respect to such amendment. It will not be necessary for the consent of Noteholders to approve the particular form of any proposed amendment or consent, but it will be sufficient if such consent approves the substance thereof. The manner of obtaining such consents (and any other consents of Noteholders provided for in this Agreement) and of evidencing the authorization of the execution thereof by Noteholders will be subject to such reasonable requirements as the Indenture Trustee may prescribe, including the establishment of record dates pursuant to the Note Depository Agreement.

(d) Prior to the execution of any amendment to this Agreement, the Servicer shall provide written notification of the substance of such amendment to each Rating Agency; and promptly after the execution of any such amendment or consent, the Servicer shall furnish a copy of such amendment or consent to each Rating Agency and the Indenture Trustee.

(e) Prior to the execution of any amendment to this Agreement, the Seller, the Note Insurer, the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee shall be entitled to receive and conclusively rely upon an Opinion of Counsel stating that the execution of such amendment is authorized or permitted by this Agreement and that all conditions precedent to the execution and delivery of such amendment have been satisfied. The Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee may, but shall not be obligated to, enter into any such amendment which adversely affects the Owner Trustee’s or the Indenture Trustee’s, as applicable, own rights, duties or immunities under this Agreement. Furthermore, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, this Agreement may not be amended in any way that would adversely affect the Owner Trustee’s rights, privileges, indemnities, duties or obligations under this Agreement, the Transaction Documents or otherwise without the prior written consent of the Owner Trustee.

SECTION 10.2 Protection of Title.

(a) The Seller shall authorize and file such financing statements and cause to be authorized and filed such continuation and other statements, all in such manner and in such places as may be required by law fully to preserve, maintain and protect the interest of the Issuer, the Note Insurer, and the Indenture Trustee under this Agreement in the Purchased Assets (other than any Purchased Assets with respect thereto, to the extent that the interest of the Issuer, the Note Insurer or the Indenture Trustee therein cannot be perfected by the filing of a financing statement). The Seller shall deliver (or cause to be delivered) to the Issuer file-stamped copies of, or filing receipts for, any document filed as provided above, as soon as available following such filing.

(b) None of the Issuer, the Seller or the Servicer shall change its name, identity, organizational structure or jurisdiction of organization in any manner that would make any financing statement or continuation statement filed by the Seller in accordance with paragraph (a) above “seriously misleading” within the meaning of Sections 9-506, 9-507 or

 

34


9-508 of the UCC, unless it shall have given the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee at least five days’ prior written notice thereof and, to the extent necessary, has promptly filed amendments to previously filed financing statements or continuation statements described in paragraph (a) above.

(c) The Seller shall give the Issuer, the Note Insurer and the Indenture Trustee at least five days’ prior written notice of any change of location of the Seller for purposes of Section 9-307 of the UCC and shall have taken all action prior to making such change (or shall have made arrangements to take such action substantially simultaneously with such change, if it is not possible to take such action in advance) reasonably necessary or advisable to amend all previously filed financing statements or continuation statements described in paragraph (a) above.

(d) The Servicer shall maintain (or shall cause its Sub-Servicer to maintain) accounts and records as to each Receivable accurately and in sufficient detail to permit (i) the reader thereof to know at any time the status of such Receivable, including payments and recoveries made and payments owing (and the nature of each) and (ii) reconciliation between payments or recoveries on (or with respect to) each Receivable and the amounts from time to time deposited in the Collection Account in respect of such Receivable.

(e) The Servicer shall maintain (or shall cause its Sub-Servicer to maintain) its computer systems so that, from time to time after the conveyance under this Agreement of the Receivables, the master computer records (including any backup archives) that refer to a Receivable shall indicate clearly the interest of the Issuer in such Receivable and that such Receivable is owned by the Issuer and has been pledged to the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Indenture Secured Parties pursuant to the Indenture. Indication of the Issuer’s and the Indenture Trustee’s interest in a Receivable shall not be deleted from or modified on such computer systems until, and only until, the related Receivable shall have been paid in full or repurchased.

(f) If at any time the Servicer shall propose to sell, grant a security interest in or otherwise transfer any interest in motor vehicle receivables to any prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee, the Servicer shall give to such prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee computer tapes, records or printouts (including any restored from backup archives) that, if they shall refer in any manner whatsoever to any Receivable, shall indicate clearly that such Receivable has been sold and is owned by the Issuer and has been pledged to the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Indenture Secured Parties.

SECTION 10.3 Other Liens or Interests. Except for the conveyances and grants of security interests pursuant to this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents, the Seller shall not sell, pledge, assign or transfer the Receivables or other property transferred to the Issuer to any other Person, or grant, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien on any interest therein, and the Seller shall defend the right, title and interest of the Issuer in, to and under such Receivables and other property transferred to the Issuer against all claims of third parties claiming through or under the Seller.

 

35


SECTION 10.4 Transfers Intended as Sale; Security Interest.

(a) Each of the parties hereto expressly intends and agrees that the transfers contemplated and effected under this Agreement are complete and absolute sales and transfers rather than pledges or assignments of only a security interest and shall be given effect as such for all purposes. It is further the intention of the parties hereto that the Receivables and related Transferred Assets shall not be part of the Seller’s estate in the event of a bankruptcy or insolvency of the Seller. The sales and transfers by the Seller of Receivables and related Transferred Assets hereunder are and shall be without recourse to, or representation or warranty (express or implied) by, the Seller, except as otherwise specifically provided herein. The limited rights of recourse specified herein against the Seller are intended to provide a remedy for breach of representations and warranties relating to the condition of the property sold, rather than to the collectibility of the Receivables.

(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Receivables and other Transferred Assets are held to be property of the Seller, or if for any reason this Agreement is held or deemed to create indebtedness or a security interest in the Receivables and other Transferred Assets, then it is intended that:

(i) This Agreement shall be deemed to be a security agreement within the meaning of Articles 8 and 9 of the New York Uniform Commercial Code and the Uniform Commercial Code of any other applicable jurisdiction;

(ii) The conveyance provided for in Section 2.1 shall be deemed to be a grant by the Seller, and the Seller hereby grants, to the Issuer of a security interest in all of its right (including the power to convey title thereto), title and interest, whether now owned or hereafter acquired, in and to the Receivables and other Transferred Assets, to secure such indebtedness and the performance of the obligations of the Seller hereunder;

(iii) The possession by the Issuer, or the Servicer as the Issuer’s agent, of the Receivables Files and any other property as constitute instruments, money, negotiable documents or chattel paper shall be deemed to be “possession by the secured party” or possession by the purchaser or a person designated by such purchaser, for purposes of perfecting the security interest pursuant to the New York Uniform Commercial Code and the Uniform Commercial Code of any other applicable jurisdiction; and

(iv) Notifications to persons holding such property, and acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from persons holding such property, shall be deemed to be notifications to, or acknowledgments, receipts or confirmations from, bailees or agents (as applicable) of the Issuer for the purpose of perfecting such security interest under applicable law.

SECTION 10.5 Notices, Etc. All demands, notices and communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be delivered or mailed by registered or certified first-class United States mail, postage prepaid, hand delivery, prepaid courier service, or by facsimile, and addressed in each case as set forth on Schedule II or at such other address as shall be designated

 

36


in a written notice to the other parties hereto. Any notice required or permitted to be mailed to a Noteholder shall be given by first class mail, postage prepaid, at the address of such Noteholder as shown in the Note Register. Delivery shall occur only upon receipt or reported tender of such communication by an officer of the recipient entitled to receive such notices located at the address of such recipient for notices hereunder; provided, however, that any notice to a Noteholder mailed within the time prescribed in this Agreement shall be conclusively presumed to have been duly given, whether or not the Noteholder shall receive such notice.

SECTION 10.6 Choice of Law. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL, SUBSTANTIVE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK INCLUDING SECTIONS 5-1401 AND 5-1402 OF THE NEW YORK GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW BUT EXCLUDING TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW ALL OTHER RULES THEREOF RELATING TO CONFLICTS OF LAW AND THE OBLIGATIONS, RIGHTS AND REMEDIES OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL BE DETERMINED IN ACCORDANCE WITH SUCH LAWS.

SECTION 10.7 Headings. The section headings hereof have been inserted for convenience of reference only and shall not be construed to affect the meaning, construction or effect of this Agreement.

SECTION 10.8 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which so executed shall be deemed to be an original, but all of such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument.

SECTION 10.9 Waivers. No failure or delay on the part of the Servicer, the Seller, the Note Insurer, the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee in exercising any power or right hereunder (to the extent such Person has any power or right hereunder) shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power or right preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power or right. No notice to or demand on any party hereto in any case shall entitle it to any notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. No waiver or approval by any party hereto under this Agreement shall, except as may otherwise be stated in such waiver or approval, be applicable to subsequent transactions. No waiver or approval under this Agreement shall require any similar or dissimilar waiver or approval thereafter to be granted hereunder.

SECTION 10.10 Entire Agreement. The Transaction Documents contain a final and complete integration of all prior expressions by the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter thereof and shall constitute the entire agreement among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter thereof, superseding all prior oral or written understandings. There are no unwritten agreements among the parties.

SECTION 10.11 Severability of Provisions. If any one or more of the covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement shall be for any reason whatsoever held invalid, then such covenants, agreements, provisions or terms shall be deemed severable from the remaining covenants, agreements, provisions or terms of this Agreement and shall in no way affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions of this Agreement.

 

37


SECTION 10.12 Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. This Agreement shall create and constitute the continuing obligations of the parties hereto in accordance with its terms, and shall remain in full force and effect until such time as the parties hereto shall agree.

SECTION 10.13 Acknowledgment and Agreement. By execution below, the Seller expressly acknowledges and consents to the pledge, assignment and grant of a security interest in the Receivables and the other Transferred Assets by the Issuer to the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Indenture Secured Parties pursuant to the Indenture for the benefit of the Indenture Secured Parties. In addition, the Seller hereby acknowledges and agrees that for so long as the Notes are outstanding, the Indenture Trustee will have the right to exercise all powers, privileges and claims of the Issuer under this Agreement.

SECTION 10.14 Cumulative Remedies. The remedies herein provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.

SECTION 10.15 Nonpetition Covenant. Each party hereto agrees that, prior to the date which is one year and one day after payment in full of all obligations of each Bankruptcy Remote Party in respect of all securities issued by any Bankruptcy Remote Party (i) such party shall not authorize any Bankruptcy Remote Party to commence a voluntary winding-up or other voluntary case or other proceeding seeking liquidation, reorganization or other relief with respect to such Bankruptcy Remote Party or its debts under any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction or seeking the appointment of an administrator, a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian or other similar official with respect to such Bankruptcy Remote Party or any substantial part of its property or to consent to any such relief or to the appointment of or taking possession by any such official in an involuntary case or other proceeding commenced against such Bankruptcy Remote Party, or to make a general assignment for the benefit of, its creditors generally, any party hereto or any other creditor of such Bankruptcy Remote Party, and (ii) none of the parties hereto shall commence or join with any other Person in commencing any proceeding against such Bankruptcy Remote Party under any bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation or insolvency law or statute now or hereafter in effect in any jurisdiction. This Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

(b) consents that any such action or proceeding may be brought in such courts and waives any objection that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of such action or proceeding in any such court or that such action or proceeding was brought in an inconvenient court and agrees not to plead or claim the same;

 

38


(c) agrees that service of process in any such action or proceeding may be effected by mailing a copy thereof by registered or certified mail (or any substantially similar form of mail), postage prepaid, to such Person at its address determined in accordance with Section 10.5 of this Agreement;

(d) agrees that nothing herein shall affect the right to effect service of process in any other manner permitted by law or shall limit the right to sue in any other jurisdiction; and

(e) to the extent permitted by applicable law, each party hereto irrevocably waives all right of trial by jury in any action, proceeding or counterclaim based on, or arising out of, under or in connection with this Agreement, any other Transaction Document, or any matter arising hereunder or thereunder.

SECTION 10.17 Limitation of Liability.

(a) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this Agreement has been executed and delivered by Wilmington Trust Company, not in its individual capacity but solely as Owner Trustee, and in no event shall it have any liability for the representations, warranties, covenants, agreements or other obligations of the Issuer hereunder or under the Notes or any of the other Transaction Documents or in any of the certificates, notices or agreements delivered pursuant thereto, as to all of which recourse shall be had solely to the assets of the Issuer. Under no circumstances shall the Owner Trustee be personally liable for the payment of any indebtedness or expense of the Issuer or be liable for the breach or failure of any obligations, representation, warranty or covenant made or undertaken by the Issuer under the Transaction Documents.

Under no circumstances shall the Indenture Trustee be personally liable for the payment of any indebtedness or expense of the Issuer or be liable for the breach or failure of any obligations, representation, warranty or covenant made or undertaken by the Issuer under the Transaction Documents. For the purposes of this Agreement, in the performance of its duties or obligations hereunder, the Indenture Trustee shall be subject to, and entitled to the benefits of, the terms and provisions of Article VI of the Indenture.

The Seller and the Servicer acknowledge and agree that the purpose of this Section 10.21 is to facilitate compliance by the Seller with the provisions of Regulation AB and related rules and regulations of the Commission. The Seller shall not exercise its right to request delivery of information or other performance under these provisions other than in good faith, or for purposes other than compliance with the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations of the Commission under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act. The Servicer acknowledges that interpretations of the requirements of Regulation AB may change over time, whether due to interpretive guidance provided by the Commission or its staff, consensus among participants in the asset-backed securities markets, advice of counsel, or otherwise, and agrees to comply with requests made by the Seller in good faith for delivery of information under these provisions on the basis of evolving interpretations of Regulation AB. The Servicer shall cooperate fully with the Seller and the Issuer to deliver to the Seller and the Issuer (including any of its assignees or designees) any and all statements, reports, certifications, records and any other information necessary in the good faith determination of the Seller or the Issuer to permit the Seller to comply with the provisions of Regulation AB, together with such disclosures relating to the Servicer and the Receivables, or the servicing of the Receivables, reasonably believed by the Servicer to be necessary in order to effect such compliance.
