From time to time thereafter, the Originator will execute and file such financing statements and cause to be executed and filed such continuation 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 Depositor under this Agreement, of the Issuer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement and of the Indenture Trustee under the Indenture in the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property and in the proceeds thereof. The Originator will deliver (or cause to be delivered) to the Depositor, the Indenture Trustee and the Insurer file-stamped copies of, or filing receipts for, any document filed as provided above, as soon as available following such filing. In the event that the Originator fails to perform its obligations under this subsection, the Depositor, Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may do so, at the expense of the Originator. In furtherance of the foregoing, the Originator hereby authorizes the Depositor, the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee to file a record or records (as defined in the applicable UCC), including financing statements, in all jurisdictions and with all filing offices as each may determine, in its sole discretion, are necessary or advisable to perfect the security interest granted to the Depositor pursuant to Section 6.9. Such financing statements may describe the collateral in the same manner as described herein or may contain an indication or description of collateral that describes such property in any other manner as such party may determine, in its sole discretion, is necessary, advisable or prudent to ensure the perfection of the security interest in the collateral granted to the Depositor herein. (b) The Originator will not change its name, identity, state of incorporation or corporate structure in any manner that would, could or might make any financing statement or continuation statement filed by the Originator (or by the Depositor, Issuer or the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Originator) in accordance with Section 4.1(a) seriously misleading within the meaning of Section 9-506 of the applicable UCC, unless the Originator will have given the Depositor, Issuer, Insurer and the Indenture Trustee at 7 least 60 days' prior written notice thereof, and will promptly file appropriate amendments to all previously filed financing statements and continuation statements. (c) The Originator shall at all times maintain each office from which it services Receivables and its principal executive office within the United States of America. (d) Prior to the Closing Date, the Originator has maintained accounts and records as to each Receivable accurately and in sufficient detail to permit (i) the reader thereof to know at any time as of or prior to the Closing Date, 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 Principal Balance as of the Cutoff Date. The Originator will maintain its computer systems so that, from and after the time of transfer under this Agreement of the Receivables to the Depositor and the conveyance of the Receivables by the Depositor to the Issuer, the Originator's master computer records (including archives) that will refer to a Receivable indicate clearly that such Receivable has been transferred to the Depositor and has been conveyed by the Depositor to Issuer. Indication of the Issuer's ownership of a Receivable will be deleted from or modified on the Originator's computer systems when, and only when, the Receivable will become a Purchased Receivable or will have been paid in full. (e) If at any time the Originator proposes to sell, grant a security interest in, or otherwise transfer any interest in any motor vehicle receivables to any prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee, the Originator will give to such prospective purchaser, lender or other transferee computer tapes, records or print-outs (including any restored from archives) that, if they refer in any manner whatsoever to any Receivable (other than a Purchased Receivable), will indicate clearly that such Receivable has been sold by the Originator and is owned by the Issuer. Section 4.2. [Reserved]. Section 4.3. Other Liens or Interests. Except for the conveyances hereunder and under the other Basic Documents, the Originator will not sell, pledge, assign or transfer to any other Person or grant, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien on the Receivables or the Other Conveyed Property or any interest herein and the Depositor will not sell, pledge, assign or transfer to any other Person, or grant, create, incur, assume or suffer to exist any Lien on the Receivables or the Other Conveyed Property or any interest therein, and the Originator will defend the right, title, and interest of the Depositor and the Issuer in and to the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property against all claims of third parties claiming through or under the Originator and the Depositor will defend the right, title, and interest of the Issuer in and to the Receivables and the Other Conveyed Property against all claims of third parties claiming through or under the Depositor. Section 4.4. Costs and Expenses. Each of the Originator and the Depositor will pay all reasonable costs and disbursements in connection with the performance of its obligations hereunder and under its Related Documents. 8 Section 4.5. Indemnification by the Originator.

Indemnification under this Section 4.5 will include reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and expenses of litigation and will survive payment of the Notes and the Certificates and termination of this Agreement. The indemnity obligations hereunder will be in addition to any obligation that the Originator may otherwise have. Section 4.6. Indemnification by the Depositor. (a) The Depositor will defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Originator, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, the Backup Servicer, the Owner Trustee, the Noteholders, the Certificateholders and the Insurer from and against any and all costs, expenses, losses, damages, claims, and liabilities, arising out of or resulting from: (i) any breach of any of the Depositor's representations and warranties contained herein, (ii) the use, ownership or operation by the Depositor or any affiliate thereof of a Financed Vehicle, (iii) any action taken, or failed to be taken, by it in respect of the Receivables other than in accordance with this Agreement or the Sale and Servicing Agreement or (iv) the negligence (except for errors in judgment), willful misfeasance, or bad faith of the Depositor in the performance of its duties under this Agreement or by reason of reckless disregard of the Depositor's obligations and duties under this Agreement. (b) The Depositor will defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, the Backup Servicer, the Owner Trustee, the Noteholders, the Certificateholders and the Insurer from and against any and all costs, expenses, losses, damages, claims, and liabilities, arising out of or resulting from any Taxes which may at any time be asserted against such Persons with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including (i) the conveyance or ownership of the Receivables or the Other Conveyed Property hereunder, (ii) the conveyance or ownership of the Receivables under the Sale and Servicing 9 Agreement and (iii) the issuance and original sale of the Notes and the issuance of the Certificates, and costs and expenses in defending against the same, arising by reason of the acts to be performed by the Depositor under this Agreement or imposed against such Persons. Indemnification under this Section 4.6 will include reasonable fees and expenses of counsel and expenses of litigation and will survive payment of the Notes and the Certificate and termination of this Agreement. The indemnity obligations hereunder will be in addition to any obligation that the Depositor may otherwise have. ARTICLE V. REPURCHASES Section 5.1. Repurchase of Receivables Upon Breach of Warranty. Upon the occurrence of a Repurchase Event, the Originator will, unless the breach which is the subject of such Repurchase Event will have been cured in all material respects, repurchase the Receivable relating thereto from the Issuer and, simultaneously with the repurchase of the Receivable, the Originator will deposit the Purchase Amount in full, without deduction or offset, to the Collection Account, pursuant to Section 3.2 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement. It is understood and agreed that, except as set forth in Section 4.5(a)(i) and Section 6.1, the obligation of the Originator to repurchase any Receivable, as to which a breach occurred and is continuing, will, if such obligation is fulfilled, constitute the sole remedy against the Originator for such breach available to the Depositor, the Issuer, the Insurer, the Backup Servicer, the Noteholders, the Certificateholders, the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Noteholders or the Owner Trustee on behalf of the Certificateholders. This Section 5.1 is intended to grant the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Noteholders and the Insurer a direct right against the Originator to demand performance hereunder, and in connection therewith, the Originator waives any requirement of prior demand against the Depositor with respect to such repurchase obligation. Any such repurchase will take place in the manner specified in Section 3.2 of the Sale and Servicing Agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or the Sale and Servicing Agreement to the contrary, the obligation of the Originator under this Section 5.1 will not terminate upon a termination of the Originator as Servicer under the Sale and Servicing Agreement and will be performed in accordance with the terms hereof notwithstanding the failure of the Servicer or the Depositor to perform any of their respective obligations with respect to such Receivable under the Sale and Servicing Agreement. Without limitation of the foregoing and notwithstanding whether the related Receivable will have been purchased by the Originator, the Originator will indemnify the Depositor, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee, the Backup Servicer, the Owner Trustee, the Insurer, the Noteholders and the Certificateholders 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 Repurchase Events. Section 5.2. Reassignment of Purchased Receivables. Upon deposit in the Collection Account of the Purchase Amount of any Receivable repurchased by the Originator under Section 5.1, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee will take such steps as may be reasonably 10 requested by the Originator in order to assign to the Originator all of the Issuer's right, title and interest in and to such Receivable and all security and documents and all Other Conveyed Property conveyed to the Issuer directly relating thereto, without recourse, representation or warranty, except as to the absence of Liens created by or arising as a result of actions of the Issuer. Such assignment will be a sale and assignment outright, and not for security. If, following the reassignment of a Purchased Receivable, in any enforcement suit or legal proceeding, it is held that the Originator may not enforce any such Receivable on the ground that it will not be a real party in interest or a holder entitled to enforce the Receivable, the Issuer and the Indenture Trustee will, at the expense of the Originator, take such steps as the Originator deems reasonably necessary to enforce the Receivable, including bringing suit in the Issuer's name. Section 5.3. Waivers. No failure or delay on the part of the Depositor, or the Issuer as assignee of the Depositor, in exercising any power, right or remedy under this Agreement will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or remedy preclude any other or future exercise thereof or the exercise of any other power, right or remedy. ARTICLE VI. MISCELLANEOUS Section 6.1. Liability of the Originator and the Depositor. Each of the Originator and the Depositor will be liable in accordance herewith only to the extent of the obligations in this Agreement specifically undertaken by each of the Originator, and the Depositor, respectively and the representations and warranties of each of the Originator and the Depositor, respectively. Section 6.2. Merger or Consolidation of the Originator or the Depositor. Any corporation, limited liability company or other entity (i) into which the Originator or the Depositor may be merged or consolidated, (ii) resulting from any merger or consolidation to which the Originator or the Depositor is a party or (iii) succeeding to the business of the Originator or the Depositor, in the case of the Depositor, which corporation, limited liability company or other entity has a certificate of incorporation or limited liability company agreement containing provisions relating to limitations on business and other matters substantively identical to those contained in the Depositor's limited liability company agreement, provided that in any of the foregoing cases such corporation or other entity will execute an agreement of assumption to perform every obligation of the Originator or the Depositor, as the case may be, under this Agreement and, whether or not such assumption agreement is executed, will be the successor to the Originator or the Depositor, as the case may be, hereunder (without relieving the Originator or the Depositor of their responsibilities hereunder, if it survives such merger or consolidation) without the execution or filing of any document or any further action by any of the parties to this Agreement.
