SECTION 3.01   Representations and Warranties of the Seller with Respect to the Receivables.  The Seller makes the following representations and warranties as to the Receivables on which the Issuer is deemed to have relied in acquiring the Receivables.  Such representations and warranties speak as of the Cutoff Date and as of the Closing Date (unless, by its terms, a representation or warranty speaks specifically as of the Cutoff Date or the Closing Date, in which case, such representation or warranty speaks specifically as of such date only), but shall survive the sale, transfer and assignment of the Receivables to the Issuer, and the pledge thereof to the Indenture Trustee pursuant to the Indenture.
 
(a)           Characteristics of Receivables.  Each Receivable (i) shall have been originated in the United States by a Dealer for the retail sale of the related Financed Vehicle in the ordinary course of such Dealer’s business, shall have been fully and properly executed by the parties thereto, shall have been purchased by TMCC from such Dealer under an existing agreement with TMCC and shall have been validly assigned by such Dealer to TMCC in accordance with the terms of such agreement and shall have been subsequently sold by TMCC to the Seller pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreement, (ii) on the Closing Date, shall have created or shall create a valid, subsisting and enforceable first priority security interest in favor of TMCC in the related Financed Vehicle, which security interest has been assigned by TMCC to the Seller and shall be assignable, and shall be so assigned, by the Seller to the Issuer hereby, (iii) shall, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, provide for scheduled monthly payments that fully amortize the Amount Financed by maturity (except for minimally different payments in the first or last month in the life of the Receivable and except pursuant to the Servicer’s Customary Servicing Practices, including Permitted Modifications that re-amortize the term of the Receivable) and provide for a finance charge or yield interest at its APR, in either case calculated based on the Simple Interest Method, (iv) shall contain customary and enforceable provisions, such that the rights and remedies of the holder thereof shall be adequate for realization against the Collateral of the benefits of the security, (v) shall provide for, in the event that such Receivable is prepaid, a prepayment that fully pays the Principal Balance and includes accrued but unpaid interest and (vi) allows for prepayment and partial prepayment without penalty.
 
(b)           Schedule of Receivables to the Transfer Notice.  As of the Cutoff Date, the information set forth in the Schedule of Receivables attached to the Transfer Notice shall be true and correct in all material respects and no selection procedures adverse to the Securityholders shall have been utilized in selecting the Receivables from those new and used passenger car, minivan, light-duty truck and sport utility vehicle receivables of TMCC that met the selection criteria set forth in this Section 3.01 and this Agreement.
 
(c)           Compliance with Law.  Each Receivable, including each form of contract used to originate each Receivable and each sale of the related Financed Vehicle, shall have complied at the time such form of contract was used or such sale was originated or made, and shall comply at the time of execution of this Agreement, in all material respects with all requirements of applicable federal, state and local laws, and regulations thereunder, including usury laws, the Federal Truth-in-Lending Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Fair Credit Billing Act, the
 

 
25

 
 
Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Regulations B and Z (to the extent applicable), the Relief Act, and state adaptations of the National Consumer Credit Protection Act and of the Uniform Consumer Credit Code and other consumer credit, equal credit opportunity and disclosure laws as applicable to such Receivable.
 
(d)           Binding Obligation.  Each Receivable is on a form contract that includes rights and remedies allowing the holder to enforce the obligation and realize on the related Financed Vehicle.  Each Receivable shall constitute the legal, valid and binding payment obligation in writing of the related Obligor, enforceable by the holder thereof in accordance with its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditors’ rights in general and by general principles of equity and consumer protection laws, regardless of whether such enforceability shall be considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.
 
(e)           No Government Obligors.  None of the Receivables shall be due from the United States or any state or local government, or from any agency, department or instrumentality of the United States or any state or local government.
 
(f)            Employee Obligors.  None of the Receivables shall be due from any employee of the Seller, TMCC or any of their respective Affiliates.
 
(g)           Security Interest in Financed Vehicles.  Immediately prior to the sale, assignment and transfer thereof to the Issuer on the Closing Date, each Receivable shall be secured by a validly perfected first priority security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor of TMCC as secured party or all necessary and appropriate action with respect to such Receivable shall have been taken to perfect a first priority security interest in such Financed Vehicle in favor of TMCC as secured party.
 
(h)           Receivables in Force.  No Receivable shall have been satisfied, subordinated or rescinded, nor shall any Financed Vehicle have been released in whole or in part from the lien granted by the related Receivable.
 
(i)            No Waivers.  As of the Cutoff Date, no provision of a Receivable shall have been waived (except pursuant to the Servicer’s Customary Servicing Practices, including Permitted Modifications that re-amortize the term of the Receivable) in such a manner that such Receivable fails to meet all of the other representations and warranties made by the Seller herein with respect thereto.
 
(j)           No Amendments.  No material provision of a Receivable has been affirmatively amended, except amendments and modifications that are contained in the related Receivable File.  As of the Cutoff Date, no Receivable shall have been amended or modified in such a manner that the total number of Scheduled Payments has been increased (except pursuant to the Servicer’s Customary Servicing Practices, including Permitted Modifications that re-amortize the term of the Receivable) or that the related Amount Financed has been increased or that such Receivable fails to meet all of the other representations and warranties made by the Seller herein with respect thereto.
 

 
26

 
 
(k)           No Defenses.  No facts shall be known to the Seller which would give rise to any right of rescission, setoff, counterclaim or defense, nor shall the same have been asserted or threatened, with respect to any Receivable.
 
(l)            No Liens.  The Seller has not received notice that any liens or claims have been filed as of the date of this Agreement, including liens for work, labor or materials relating to a Financed Vehicle, that shall be liens prior to, or equal or coordinate with, the security interest in such Financed Vehicle granted by the related Receivable, which Liens shall not have been released or satisfied as of the Closing Date.
 
(m)           No Default; No Repossession.  Except for payment delinquencies that, as of the Cutoff Date, have been continuing for a period of not more than 29 days, no default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration under the terms of any Receivable shall have occurred as of the Cutoff Date; no continuing condition that with notice or the lapse of time would constitute a default, breach, violation or event permitting acceleration under the terms of any Receivable shall have arisen; the Seller shall not have waived any of the foregoing; and no Financed Vehicle has been repossessed without reinstatement as of the Cutoff Date.
 
(n)           Insurance.  The terms of each Receivable require the Obligor to obtain and maintain physical damage insurance covering the related Financed Vehicle in accordance with TMCC’s normal requirements.  The terms of each Receivable allow, but do not require TMCC to (and TMCC, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, does not) obtain any such coverage on behalf of the Obligor.
 
(o)           Good Title.  It is the intention of the Seller that the transfer and assignment herein contemplated, taken as a whole, constitute a sale of the Receivables from the Seller to the Issuer and that the beneficial interest in and title to the Receivables not be part of the debtor’s estate in the event of the filing of a bankruptcy petition by or against the Seller under any bankruptcy law.  No Receivable has been sold, transferred, assigned or pledged by the Seller to any Person other than the Issuer, and no provision of a Receivable shall have been waived, except for a waiver that would not violate clause (i) or clause (j) above; immediately prior to the transfer and assignment herein contemplated, the Seller had good and marketable title to each Receivable free and clear of all Liens and rights of others; immediately upon the transfer and assignment thereof, the Issuer shall have good and marketable title to each Receivable, free and clear of all Liens and rights of others; and the transfer and assignment herein contemplated has been perfected under the UCC.
 
(p)           Lawful Assignment.  No Receivable shall have been originated in, or shall be subject to the laws of, any jurisdiction under which the sale, transfer and assignment of such Receivable under this Agreement or pursuant to a transfer of the related certificate of title shall be unlawful, void or voidable.  The terms of each Receivable do not limit the right of the owner of such Receivable to sell such Receivable.  The Seller has not entered into any agreement with any Person that prohibits, restricts or conditions the sale of any Receivable by the Seller.
 
(q)           All Filings Made.  As of the Closing Date, all filings (including UCC filings) necessary in any jurisdiction to provide third parties with notice of the transfer and assignment herein contemplated, to perfect the sale of the Receivables from the Seller to the Issuer to give
 

 
27

 
 
the Issuer a first priority perfected security interest in the Receivables and to give the Indenture Trustee a first priority perfected security interest therein shall have been made.
 
(r)           One Original or Authoritative Copy.  There is only one original executed copy of each tangible record (except that carbon or other copies may exist) constituting or forming a part of each Receivable that is tangible chattel paper fully executed and signed by the related Obligor, or a single “authoritative copy” (as such term is used in Section 9-105 of the UCC) of each electronic record constituting or forming a part of each Receivable in the form of electronic chattel paper.  Such “authoritative copy” of each Receivable in the form of electronic chattel paper consists of either (i) a copy or image stored in an electronic medium of the original executed copy of the Receivable in the form of tangible chattel paper that had been executed and signed by the related Obligor, that had been delivered to TMCC before conversion to an electronic record, and that identifies TMCC as the secured party under such Receivable or as the assignee of the secured party under such Receivable or (ii) an electronic record initially authenticated by the related Obligor that (x) is maintained for TMCC by a third party provider acting on behalf of TMCC and (y) identifies TMCC as the secured party under such Receivable or as the assignee of the secured party under such Receivable.  No copies or revisions that change TMCC’s identification as the secured party or the assignee of the secured party can be made without the participation of TMCC.  Either (i) there are no copies of the authoritative copy of any Receivable in the form of electronic chattel paper or (ii) every copy of the authoritative copy and every copy of a copy is readily identifiable as a copy that is not the authoritative copy of the Receivable in the form of electronic chattel paper.  No revision of the authoritative copy of the Receivable in the form of electronic chattel paper can be made unless such revision is readily identifiable as an authorized or unauthorized revision.  In the case of an electronic record consisting of a copy or image stored in an electronic medium of the original executed and signed copy of the Receivable in the form of tangible chattel paper that had been executed by the related Obligor, after the creation and designation of the electronic record evidencing the Receivable as the authoritative copy, the tangible record evidencing the Receivable was destroyed and, pending such destruction, was marked or maintained in such a manner to indicate that such tangible record is not an authoritative copy of the Receivable.
 
(s)           Chattel Paper.  Each Receivable constitutes “chattel paper” that is in the form of either “tangible chattel paper” or “electronic chattel paper” as such terms are defined in the UCC.
 
(t)           Additional Representations and Warranties.  (i) Each Receivable shall have an original number of Scheduled Payments of not less than 12 nor more than 72 and, as of the Cutoff Date, a remaining number of Scheduled Payments of not less than 4 nor more than 68; (ii) each Receivable provides for the payment of a finance charge based on an APR ranging from 0.00% to not more than 24.00%; (iii) each Receivable shall have had an original principal balance of not less than $1,000 and not more than $110,000 and, as of the Cutoff Date, an unpaid principal balance of not less than $250 and not more than $100,000; (iv) no Financed Vehicle was subject to force-placed insurance as of the Cutoff Date; (v) each Receivable is being serviced by Toyota Motor Credit Corporation as of the Closing Date; (vi) each Receivable is secured by a new or used passenger car, minivan, light-duty truck or sport utility vehicle; (vii) no Receivable was more than 29 days past due as of the Cutoff Date; (viii) as of the Cutoff Date, no Receivable was noted in the records of the TMCC or the Servicer as being the subject of a bankruptcy proceeding or insolvency proceeding; (ix) each Receivable is calculated with the
 

 
28

 
 
Simple Interest Method; (x) each Receivable has a first scheduled due date of not later than 30 days after the Cutoff Date; and (xi) each Receivable shall have had a FICO score of at least 620 as of the Cutoff Date.
 
(u)           Location of Receivable Files.  Each Receivable File shall be kept in electronic form at one of the locations listed in Schedule A to this Agreement or at such other office as shall be specified to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee as provided in Section 3.03(b).
 
(v)           Perfection Representations, Warranties and Covenants. The Seller hereby makes the perfection representations, warranties and covenants set forth on Schedule B hereto to the Issuer and the Issuer shall be deemed to have relied on such representations, warranties and covenants in acquiring the Receivables.
 
SECTION 3.02   Remedies.  The Seller, the Servicer or the Owner Trustee, as the case may be, shall inform the other parties to this Agreement and the Indenture Trustee promptly, in writing, upon the discovery of any breach of the Seller’s representations and warranties made pursuant to Section 3.01 that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer in any Receivable.  By the last day of the second Collection Period following the Collection Period in which it discovers or receives notice of such breach, the Seller shall, unless such breach shall have been cured in all material respects, repurchase such Receivable and, if necessary, the Seller shall enforce the obligation of TMCC under the Receivables Purchase Agreement to repurchase such Receivable from the Seller.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the obligation of the Seller to repurchase a Receivable shall not be conditioned on the performance by TMCC of its obligation to repurchase such Receivable from the Seller pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreement.  In consideration of the repurchase of any such Receivable, on or prior to 11:00am New York time on the related Payment Date, the Seller shall remit the Warranty Purchase Payment of such Receivable to the Collection Account in the manner specified in Section 5.05.  Except as described below, the sole remedy of the Owner Trustee, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee (by operation of the assignment of the Owner Trustee’s rights hereunder pursuant to the Indenture) or any Securityholder with respect to a breach of the Seller’s representations and warranties pursuant to this Agreement shall be to require the Seller to repurchase the related Receivable pursuant to this Section and to enforce TMCC’s obligation to the Seller to repurchase such Receivables pursuant to the Receivables Purchase Agreement.  The Owner Trustee shall have no duty to conduct any affirmative investigation as to the occurrence of any condition requiring the repurchase of any Receivable pursuant to this Section.  In connection with such repurchase, the Owner Trustee and Indenture Trustee shall take all steps necessary to effect a transfer of such Receivable as set forth in Section 9.01(d).
 
SECTION 3.03            Duties of Servicer as Custodian.
 
(a)           Safekeeping.  The Servicer shall hold, at one of the locations listed in Schedule A to this Agreement or at such other office as shall be specified to the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee as provided in section 3.03(b), the Receivable Files as custodian for the benefit of the Issuer and maintain such accurate and complete accounts, records and computer systems pertaining to each Receivable File as shall enable the Issuer to comply with this Agreement.  The Servicer covenants and agrees that it shall hold the Receivable Files in such a manner as to prevent any other Person from obtaining control of any electronic chattel paper (as defined in the
 

 
29

 
 
UCC) included therein, within the meaning of section 9-105 of the UCC.  In performing its duties as custodian, the Servicer shall act in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices.  The Servicer shall promptly report to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee any failure on its part to hold the Receivable Files and maintain its accounts, records and computer systems as herein provided and shall promptly take appropriate action to remedy any such failure.  Nothing herein shall be deemed to require an initial review or any periodic review by the Issuer, the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee of the Receivable Files.
 
(b)           Maintenance of and Access to Records.  The Servicer shall maintain each Receivable File at one of its offices specified in Schedule A or at such other office of the Servicer or a third party agent retained by the Servicer as shall be specified to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee by written notice not later than 90 days after any change in location.  The Servicer shall make available to the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee or their respective duly authorized representatives, attorneys or auditors a list of locations of the Receivable Files and the related accounts, records and computer systems maintained by the Servicer at such times during normal business hours as the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee shall instruct with reasonable advance notice.
 
(c)           Release of Documents.  Upon instruction from the Indenture Trustee, the Servicer shall release any Receivable File 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 as practicable.
 
SECTION 3.04   Instructions; Authority To Act.  The Servicer shall be deemed to have received proper instructions with respect to the Receivable Files upon its receipt of written instructions signed by a Trust Officer of the Owner Trustee or the Indenture Trustee.  A certified copy of a bylaw or of a resolution of the board of directors of the Owner Trustee or of the Indenture Trustee shall constitute conclusive evidence of the authority of such Trust Officer to act, and shall be considered conclusive evidence of the authority of such Trust Officer to act until receipt by the Servicer of written notice to the contrary given by the Owner Trustee or Indenture Trustee, as the case may be.
 
SECTION 3.05            Custodian’s Indemnification.  The Servicer as custodian shall indemnify the Issuer, the Owner Trustee and the Indenture Trustee and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents 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 any of them 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 in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; provided, however, that the Servicer shall not be liable to the Owner Trustee for any portion of any such amount resulting from the willful misfeasance, bad faith or gross negligence of the Owner Trustee, and the Servicer shall not be liable to the Indenture Trustee for any portion of any such amount resulting from the willful misfeasance, bad faith or negligence of the Indenture Trustee.
 
SECTION 3.06            Effective Period and Termination.  The Servicer’s appointment as custodian shall become effective as of the date hereof, and shall continue in full force and effect until terminated pursuant to this Section.  If TMCC shall resign as Servicer in accordance with
 

 
30

 
 
the provisions of this Agreement or if all of the rights and obligations of any Servicer shall have been terminated under Section 8.01, the appointment of TMCC (as Servicer) as custodian shall be terminated hereunder without further action by the Indenture Trustee, Owner Trustee, Noteholders or the Certificateholder. The Indenture Trustee or, with the consent of the Indenture Trustee, the Owner Trustee may terminate the Servicer’s appointment as custodian, with cause, at any time upon written notification to the Servicer.  The Owner Trustee, Indenture Trustee or Noteholders may terminate the Servicer as custodian hereunder in the same manner as the Owner Trustee, Indenture Trustee or Noteholders may terminate the rights and obligations of the Servicer under Section 8.01.  As soon as practicable after any termination of such appointment, the Servicer shall deliver the Receivable Files to the Indenture Trustee or the agent thereof at such place or places as the Indenture Trustee may reasonably designate.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Servicer is authorized and empowered to execute and deliver, on behalf of itself, the Issuer, the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Securityholders 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 the Receivables and the Financed Vehicles.  The Servicer is hereby authorized to communicate with Obligors in the ordinary course of its servicing of the Receivables and Financed Vehicles in its own name.  The Servicer is hereby authorized to commence, in its own name or in the name of the Issuer, a legal proceeding to enforce a Defaulted Receivable or to commence or participate in a legal proceeding (including without limitation a bankruptcy proceeding) relating to or involving a Receivable, including a Defaulted Receivable.  If the Servicer shall commence or participate in a legal proceeding to enforce a Receivable, the Issuer shall thereupon be deemed to have automatically assigned to the Servicer, solely for the purpose of collection on behalf of the party retaining an interest in such Receivable, such Receivable and
 

 
31

 

the other property conveyed to the Issuer hereby with respect to such Receivable for purposes of commencing or participating in any such proceeding as a party or claimant, and the Servicer is authorized and empowered by the Owner Trustee 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 shall be held that the Servicer may not enforce a Receivable on the ground that it shall not be a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce such Receivable, the Owner Trustee on behalf of the Issuer shall, at the Servicer’s expense and direction, take steps to enforce such Receivable, including bringing suit in its name or the name of the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee, the Certificateholder and/or the Noteholders.  The Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, shall furnish the Servicer with any powers of attorney and other documents and take any other steps which the Servicer may deem necessary or appropriate to enable the Servicer to carry out its servicing and administrative duties under this Agreement.
 
SECTION 4.02   Collection and Allocation of Receivable Payments.  The Servicer shall make reasonable efforts to collect all payments called for under the terms and provisions of the Receivables as and when the same shall become due and shall follow such customary collection procedures as it follows with respect to comparable automotive receivables that it services for itself or others.  The Servicer shall be authorized to grant extensions, rebates or adjustments on a Receivable in accordance with the Customary Servicing Practices of the Servicer without the prior consent of the Owner Trustee, the Indenture Trustee or any Securityholder; provided, however, that if the amount of any Scheduled Payment due in a subsequent Collection Period is reduced as a result of (x) any change in the related APR or the Amount Financed, (y) any increase in the total number of Scheduled Payments or (z) any extension of payments such that the Receivable will be outstanding later than the last day of the Collection Period preceding the Class B Final Scheduled Payment Date, then the Servicer shall be obligated (except to the extent any such extension, rebate or adjustment constitutes a Permitted Modification) to repurchase such Receivable pursuant to Section 4.08; provided further, that the Servicer shall have no such obligation to repurchase a Receivable as a result of any such extension of payments under clause (z) above if it is required to grant such extension under law or pursuant to a court order.  In addition, in the event that any such rescheduling or extension of a Receivable modifies the terms of such Receivable in such a manner as to release the security interest in the related Financed Vehicle or constitutes a cancellation of such Receivable and the creation of a new passenger car, minivan, light-duty truck or sport utility vehicle receivable, the Servicer shall purchase such Receivable pursuant to Section 4.08 (except to the extent any such rescheduling, extension or modification constitutes a Permitted Modification), and the receivable created shall not be included as an asset of the Issuer.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, (1) if a default, breach, violation, delinquency or event permitting acceleration under the terms of any Receivable shall have occurred or, in the judgment of the Servicer, is imminent, the Servicer may (A) extend such Receivable for credit related reasons that would be acceptable to the Servicer with respect to comparable new or used passenger car, minivan, light-duty truck or sport utility vehicle receivables that it services for itself, but only if the final scheduled payment date of such Receivable as extended would not be later than the last day of the Collection Period preceding the Class B Final Scheduled Payment Date; or (B) reduce the outstanding principal amount of the Receivable in the event of a prepayment resulting from refunds of Insurance Policy premiums and service contracts and make similar adjustments in an Obligor’s payment terms to the extent required by law; (2) if at the end
 

 
32

 
 
of the scheduled term of any Receivable, the outstanding principal amount thereof is such that the final payment to be made by the related Obligor is larger than the regularly scheduled payment of principal and interest made by such Obligor, the Servicer may permit such Obligor to pay such remaining principal amount in more than one payment of principal and interest, provided that the last such payment shall be due on or prior to the last day of the Collection Period preceding the Class B Final Scheduled Payment Date; and (3) the Servicer may, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, waive any prepayment charge, late payment charge or any other fees that may be collected in the ordinary course of servicing the Receivables.  Each such action that the Servicer is permitted to take in accordance with the terms of the immediately preceding sentence shall constitute a “Permitted Modification.”
 
In addition, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices, the Servicer shall modify the terms of any Receivable impacted by the Relief Act and the Servicer shall be obligated to purchase any such modified Receivable in accordance with the terms of Section 4.08.
 
SECTION 4.03   [Reserved].
 
SECTION 4.04            Realization upon Receivables.  On behalf of the Issuer, the Servicer shall use its best efforts, consistent with its Customary Servicing Practices, to repossess or otherwise comparably convert the ownership of any Financed Vehicle that it has reasonably determined should be repossessed or otherwise converted following a default under the Receivable secured by the Financed Vehicle (and shall specify such Receivables to the Indenture Trustee no later than the Determination Date following the end of the Collection Period in which the Servicer shall have made such determination).  The Servicer shall follow such practices and procedures as it shall deem necessary or advisable and as shall be customary and usual in its servicing of passenger car, minivan, light-duty truck and sport utility vehicle receivables, which practices and procedures may include reasonable efforts to realize upon any Dealer Recourse, selling the related Financed Vehicle at public or private sale and other actions to realize upon such a Receivable.  The Servicer shall be entitled to recover its Liquidation Expenses with respect to each Defaulted Receivable.  All Net Liquidation Proceeds realized in connection with any such action with respect to a Receivable shall be deposited by the Servicer in the Collection Account in the manner specified in Section 5.02.  The foregoing is subject to the proviso that, in any case in which the Financed Vehicle shall have suffered damage, the Servicer shall not expend funds in connection with any repair or towards the repossession of such Financed Vehicle unless it shall determine in its discretion that such repair and/or repossession shall increase the Liquidation Proceeds of the related Receivable by an amount greater than the amount of such expenses.
 
SECTION 4.05            Physical Damage Insurance.  The Servicer shall, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices and only to the same extent, if any, that the Servicer so requires by obligors with respect to retail installment sales contracts that are held for the account of TMCC, require that each Obligor, upon the Servicer’s request, deliver proof that it has obtained physical damage insurance covering the related Financed Vehicle at the date of origination of the related Receivable, but shall not obtain any such coverage on behalf of any Obligor.

SECTION 4.06   Maintenance of Security Interests in Financed Vehicles.  The Servicer shall, in accordance with its Customary Servicing Practices and at its own expense, 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 again 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.  In the event that the assignment of a Receivable to the Issuer is insufficient, without a notation on the related Financed Vehicle’s certificate of title, to grant to the Issuer a first priority perfected security interest in the related Financed Vehicle, the Servicer hereby agrees to serve as the agent of the Issuer for the purpose of perfecting the security interest of the Issuer in such Financed Vehicle and agrees that the Servicer’s listing as the secured party on the certificate of title is in this capacity as agent of the Issuer.
 
SECTION 4.07            Covenants of Servicer.  The Servicer hereby makes the following covenants to the Issuer on which the Issuer has relied in purchasing the Receivables and issuing the Certificate, and on which the Indenture Trustee will rely in undertaking the trusts set forth in the Indenture and acting for the Noteholders.
 
(a)           Liens in Force.  Except as contemplated by this Agreement or to the extent required by law or court order, the Servicer shall not release in whole or in part any Financed Vehicle from the security interest securing the related Receivable except (a) 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, (b) in connection with repossession or (c) except as may be required by an insurer in order to receive proceeds from any Insurance Policy covering such Financed Vehicle.

(c)           No Amendments.  Except as provided in Section 4.02 or to the extent required by law or court order, the Servicer shall not amend or otherwise modify any Receivable such that the total number of Scheduled Payments, the Amount Financed or the APR is altered, or extend the maturity of such Receivable beyond the last day of the Collection Period preceding the Class B Final Scheduled Payment Date.
 
SECTION 4.08            Remedies.  The Servicer shall inform the Owner Trustee and Indenture Trustee promptly (but no more frequently than monthly), in writing (including, without limitation, delivery in writing by means of electronic mail), upon the actual knowledge of one of its officers of, and the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Issuer, shall inform the Servicer and the Indenture Trustee promptly, in writing, upon the actual knowledge of one of its Trust Officers of, any breach pursuant to Section 4.06 or 4.07 that materially and adversely affects the interests of the Issuer in a Receivable, or if an extension, rescheduling or modification of a Receivable is made by the Servicer and which obligates the Servicer to repurchase such Receivable, as described in Section 4.02, the party discovering such event shall give prompt (but no more frequently than monthly) written notice to the others.  By the last day of the second Collection Period following the Collection Period in which it discovers or receives notice of such event, the Servicer shall, unless such event shall have been cured in all material respects or such

General
 
1.           This Agreement creates a valid and continuing security interest (as defined in the applicable UCC) in the Receivables and the other Collateral in favor of the Issuer, which security interest is prior to all other Liens, and is enforceable as such against creditors of and purchasers from the Seller.
 
2.           The Receivables constitute “chattel paper” (including “tangible chattel paper” and “electronic chattel paper”) within the meaning of the applicable UCC.
 
3.           Each Receivable is secured by a first priority validly perfected security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor of TMCC, as secured party, or all necessary actions with respect to such Receivable have been taken or will be taken to perfect a first priority security interest in the related Financed Vehicle in favor of TMCC, as secured party.
 
Creation
 
4.           Immediately prior to the sale, transfer, assignment and conveyance of a Receivable by the Seller to the Issuer, the Seller owned and had good and marketable title to such Receivable free and clear of any Lien and immediately after the sale, transfer, assignment and conveyance of such Receivable to the Issuer, the Issuer will have good and marketable title to such Receivable free and clear of any Lien.
 
Perfection
 
5.           The Seller has caused or will have caused, within 10 days after the effective date of this Agreement, the filing of all appropriate financing statements in the proper filing office in the appropriate jurisdictions under applicable law in order to perfect the security interest in the Receivables granted to the Issuer hereunder; and the Servicer, in its capacity as custodian, has in its possession or control (within the meaning of the applicable UCC) of the record or records that constitute or evidence the Receivables, and all financing statements referred to in this paragraph contain a statement that: “A purchase of or security interest in any collateral described in this financing statement will violate the rights of the Secured Party.”
 
6.           With respect to Receivables that constitute tangible chattel paper, such tangible chattel paper is in the possession of the Servicer, and the Servicer (in its capacity as custodian) is holding such tangible chattel paper solely on behalf and for the benefit of the Seller.

8.           Either (1) (i) only one authoritative copy of each contract that constitutes or evidences the Receivable exists, and each such authoritative copy (y) is unique, identifiable, and unalterable (other than with the participation of TMCC, in the case of an addition or change of an identified assignee and other than a revision that is readily identifiable as an authorized or unauthorized revision) and (z) has been communicated to and is maintained by the Servicer or a third party provider acting on behalf of TMCC, (ii) the authoritative copy of the related contract identifies only TMCC as the assignee thereof, (iii) each copy of the authoritative copy of the related contract and any copy of a copy are readily identifiable as copies that are not the authoritative copy and (iv) the Receivable has been established in a manner such that (a) all copies or revisions that add or change an identified assignee of the authoritative copy of each contract that constitutes or evidences the Receivable must be made with the participation of the TMCC, and (b) all revisions of the authoritative copy of each contract that constitute or evidence the Receivable must be readily identifiable as an authorized or unauthorized revision or (2) each contract that constitutes or evidences the Receivable and the system pursuant to which TMCC has acquired such contract reliably establishes TMCC as the person to whom the related chattel paper was assigned.
 
9.           In the case of a Receivable evidenced by an electronic record consisting of a copy or image stored in an electronic medium of the original executed and signed copy of the Receivable in the form of tangible chattel paper that had been signed by the related Obligor, the related contract was originated in the form of one original executed written contract that constitutes “tangible chattel paper” within the meaning of the applicable UCC, such sole original executed written contract was delivered to the Servicer and, in accordance with the Customary Servicing Practices of the Servicer, was or will be destroyed as soon as practicable after the expiration of 14 days after the conversion of such sole original executed and signed written contract to an electronic record by a scanning and imaging process.  After destruction of the sole original executed written contract, the related Receivable is evidenced only by “electronic chattel paper” within the meaning of the applicable UCC.

13.           None of the tangible chattel paper or electronic chattel paper that constitutes or evidences the Receivables has any marks or notations indicating that they have been pledged, assigned or otherwise conveyed to any Person other than TMCC, the Seller, the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee.
 
Survival of Perfection Representations
 
14.           Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement or any other Basic Document, the perfection representations, warranties and covenants contained in this Schedule B shall be continuing, and remain in full force and effect until such time as all obligations under the Basic Documents and the Notes have been finally and fully paid and performed.
 
No Waiver
