(“Party A” or the “Counterparty”) and SWIFT Master Auto Receivables Trust (“Party B” or the “Trust”) as of the Trade Date listed below (the “Transaction”). This letter constitutes a “Confirmation” as referred to in the Primary ISDA Agreement specified below.
1.   The definitions and provisions contained in the 2006 ISDA Definitions (the “Definitions”), as published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc.

The agreement is comprised of the printed form of such agreement as published by ISDA, as supplemented and modified by a Schedule (the “Primary ISDA Agreement”).
 
    This Confirmation constitutes a binding agreement between you and us and will supplement, form a part of, and be subject to the Primary ISDA Agreement described above as amended and supplemented from time to time.
 
    The Counterparty and the Trust acknowledge that this Transaction relates to the Series 2007-2 Floating Rate Asset Backed Notes, Class B (the “Reference Notes”) issued by the Trust for value pursuant to and subject to the Indenture and the Series 2007-2 Indenture Supplement.
 
    Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein, in the Primary ISDA Agreement, in the Definitions or in the Series 2007-2 Indenture Supplement shall have the meanings assigned to them in Exhibit A or Exhibit B hereto, as applicable.
 
    All references to “dollars” or to “$” shall be references to amounts in United States Dollars.

    Trade Date: October 10, 2007.
 
    Effective Date: October 16, 2007.

 


 

Termination Date: The earlier of the close of business on (i) the Series 2007-2 Legal Maturity Date (or if such day is not a Business Day, the next succeeding Business Day) of the Reference Notes, and (ii) the Payment Date on which the Notional Amount is reduced to zero.

4.   Credit Downgrade:
(A) Moody’s Downgrade: In the event that the Joint Probability is reduced below Aa3, in the case of Moody’s, the Counterparty shall promptly notify the Trust (and any permitted assignee or transferee of the Trust) and GMAC of such event and (unless, within thirty (30) days after such reduction, the applicable Rating Agency has reconfirmed in writing the ratings of the Reference Notes and the Other Securities that were in effect immediately prior to such reduction) the Counterparty shall at its own cost within thirty (30) days of such reduction, with the prior written confirmation of the applicable Rating Agency that such arrangement will not result in the reduction of the rating of any of the Reference Notes or the Other Securities existing immediately prior to the reduction of the applicable Joint Probability, either:

2


 

(1) (x) obtain a Substitute Swap Provider acceptable to the Trust, such acceptance to be deemed to exist unless the Indenture Trustee provides a reasonable basis for objection to such Substitute Swap Provider within two (2) Business Days of receipt of notice from the Counterparty, and replace this Transaction with a swap transaction on substantially similar terms or with such other amendments as consented to in writing by the Trust (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), provided such replacement would result in a Moody’s Joint Probability of at least Aa3, except that such Substitute Swap Provider shall thenceforth be the “Counterparty” hereunder; or (y) replace, with the consent of the then-current Offsetting Counterparty, the swap transaction with the then-current Offsetting Counterparty with a swap transaction with a replacement Offsetting Counterparty or enter into a swap transaction with another party such that such party shall be acting as an intermediary between the Counterparty and the then-current Offsetting Counterparty (such replacement or intermediary being the “Replacement Offsetting Counterparty”), in either case on terms approved by Moody’s; or
(2) post collateral pursuant to the ISDA Credit Support Annex (“CSA”) hereto, obtain an Eligible Guarantee; or
(3) enter into such other credit support arrangements to assure performance by the Counterparty of its obligations under this Transaction.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that the Joint Probability is reduced below A3, in the case of Moody’s, then the Counterparty shall promptly notify the Trust (and any permitted assignee or transferee of the Trust) and the Offsetting Counterparty of such event and (unless, within thirty (30) days after such reduction the applicable Rating Agency has reconfirmed in writing the ratings of the Reference Notes and the Other Securities that were in effect immediately prior to such reduction) the Counterparty shall at its own cost within thirty (30) days of such reduction, with the prior written confirmation of the applicable Rating Agency that such arrangement will not result in the reduction of the rating of any of the Reference Notes or the Other Securities existing immediately prior to the reduction of the applicable Joint Probability as a direct result of the reduction of such Joint Probability, obtain a Substitute Swap Provider acceptable to the Trust, such acceptance to be deemed to exist unless the Indenture Trustee provides a basis for objection to such Substitute Swap Provider within two (2) Business Days of receipt of notice from the Counterparty, and replace this Transaction with a swap transaction on substantially similar terms or with such other amendments as consented to in writing by the Trust (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld) provided such replacement would result in a Moody’s Joint Probability of at least Aa3, except that such Substitute Swap Provider shall thenceforth be the “Counterparty” hereunder.
(B) Fitch Downgrade: In the event that the short-term rating assigned by Fitch to the unsecured, unsubordinated debt of the Counterparty falls below “F1” or the long-term debt rating assigned by Fitch to the unsecured, unsubordinated debt of the Counterparty falls below “A” (such downgrade, a “Fitch Downgrade”), then, the Counterparty shall promptly notify the Trust (and any permitted assignee or transferee of the Trust) and GMAC of such Fitch Downgrade and the Counterparty shall at its own cost within thirty (30) calendar days of such reduction, either:
(1) (x) obtain a Substitute Swap Provider acceptable to the Trust, such acceptance to be deemed to exist unless the Indenture Trustee provides a reasonable basis for objection to such Substitute Swap Provider within two (2) Business Days of receipt of notice from the Counterparty, and replace this Transaction with a swap transaction on substantially similar terms or with such other amendments as consented to in writing by the Trust (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), provided such replacement would result in a Fitch unsecured, unsubordinated debt rating of at least “A” (long-term) and “F1” (short-term), except that such Substitute Swap Provider shall thenceforth be the “Counterparty” hereunder; or
(2) post collateral pursuant to the CSA; or
(3) provide an Eligible Guarantee; or
(4) enter into such other credit support arrangements to assure performance by the Counterparty of its obligations under this Transaction.

3


 

Notwithstanding the forgoing, in the event that the short-term rating assigned by Fitch to the unsecured, unsubordinated debt of the Counterparty falls below “F3” or the long-term debt rating assigned by Fitch to the unsecured, unsubordinated debt of the Counterparty falls below “BBB-” (such additional downgrade, a “Fitch Additional Downgrade”), then the Counterparty shall promptly notify the Trust (and any permitted assignee or transferee of the Trust) and GMAC of such Fitch Additional Downgrade and the Counterparty shall within thirty (30) calendar days of such reduction, satisfy the requirements set forth in either sub-paragraph 4(B)(1), (3) or (4) above.
(C) S&P Downgrade.
(1) If an S&P Collateralization Event occurs with respect to each Relevant Entity, the Counterparty shall at its sole expense, post collateral pursuant to the CSA for the benefit of the Trust in the amount and on the terms then applicable under the CSA. At any time following an S&P Collateralization Event, if the Counterparty elects, the Counterparty may assign its rights and obligations under this Transaction to a Substitute Swap Provider in accordance with Part 5(f) of the Schedule; provided that (A) no termination payments or other settlement amounts are payable by the Trust to either the Counterparty or the Substitute Swap Provider at the time of or as a result of such assignment by the Counterparty and (B) any termination payments or other settlement amounts are to be settled directly between the Counterparty and the Substitute Swap Provider. Alternatively, the Counterparty may elect to obtain for the benefit of the Trust an Eligible Guarantee of all of the Counterparty’s obligations under this Transaction; provided that the guarantor is an Eligible Guarantor. Upon the successful consummation of any assignment to a Substitute Swap Provider or the delivery of an Eligible Guarantee as contemplated in this Section 4(C)(1), any obligation of the Counterparty to post and maintain collateral under the CSA shall terminate and the Trust shall return to the Counterparty any then-posted collateral (it being understood that until such time, if any, as the Counterparty completes the assignment of its rights and obligations hereunder to a Substitute Swap Provider or procures an Eligible Guarantee of such obligations, the Counterparty shall remain obligated to post Eligible Collateral to the extent and on the terms required by the CSA).
(2) If an S&P Substitution Event occurs with respect to each Relevant Entity, the Counterparty shall (a) within 10 Local Business Days of the occurrence of such S&P Substitution Event and at its sole expense, post Eligible Collateral for the benefit of the Trust in the amount and on the terms then applicable under the CSA, and (b) use commercially reasonable efforts to, within 60 calendar days of the occurrence of such S&P Substitution Event, either (1) assign its rights and obligations under this Transaction to a Substitute Swap Provider in accordance with Part 5(f) of the Schedule, provided that (A) no termination payments or other settlement amounts are payable by the Trust to either the Counterparty or the Substitute Swap Provider at the time of or as a result of such assignment by the Counterparty and (B) any termination payments or other settlement amounts are to be settled directly between the Counterparty and the Substitute Swap Provider; or (2) procure an Eligible Guarantee of the Counterparty’s obligations hereunder by a guarantor that is an Eligible Guarantor. Upon the successful consummation of any assignment to a Substitute Swap Provider or the delivery of any Eligible Guarantee as contemplated in this Section 4(C)(2), any obligation of the Counterparty to post and maintain collateral under the CSA shall terminate and the Trust shall return to the Counterparty any then-posted collateral.
Upon any assignment of this Transaction to a Substitute Swap Provider, any and all collateral posted by the Counterparty shall be returned to it within three (3) Business Days and any other form of collateral arrangement (including letters of credit, surety bond or other guarantee) provided by or on behalf of the Counterparty shall terminate.
In the event that the Counterparty fails to satisfy its obligations set forth above in this Section 4, such failure shall be treated as a Termination Event with the Counterparty as the Affected Party. For the avoidance of doubt, the Counterparty and the Trust acknowledge and agree that any such failure shall not constitute an Event of Default.

6.   Limited Recourse: Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein but without limiting the Counterparty’s rights under Section 5(a)(i) of the Primary ISDA Agreement, all of the obligations of the Trust shall be payable by the Trust only at the times and to the extent of funds available therefor under the Trust Sale and Servicing Agreement and, to the extent such funds are not available or are insufficient for the payment thereof, shall not constitute a claim against the Trust to the extent of such unavailability or insufficiency until such time as, and then to the extent that, the Trust has assets sufficient to pay such prior deficiency. This paragraph shall survive the termination of this Agreement but in all cases shall expire one year and one day after the final payment with respect to all notes and certificates issued by the Trust.

8.   To the extent that a capitalized term in this Transaction is defined by reference to a related definition contained in any Trust Document, for purposes of this Transaction only, such capitalized term shall be deemed to be amended only if the amendment of the term in a Trust Document relating to such capitalized term occurs with the prior written consent of the Counterparty.

     “Preceding Semi-Monthly Period”: with respect to a Calculation Period, means the Semi-Monthly Period in the preceding calendar month corresponding to the Semi-Monthly Period in which such Calculation Period occurs (so that, e.g., the Preceding Semi-Monthly Period for the May 31 Calculation Period is the Semi-Monthly Period from April 16 through April 30).
     “Prime Rate”: with respect to a Calculation Period, means the interest rate designated by GMAC LLC to Dealers as the effective “prime rate” during the Preceding Semi-Monthly Period, which rate is based on the “prime rate” or “corporate base rate” announced by certain financial institutions selected by GMAC LLC immediately prior to such Preceding Semi-Monthly Period.
     “Reference Bank Rate”: means for any Calculation Period for any Payment Date, the per annum rate determined on the basis of the rates at which deposits in U.S. Dollars are offered by the reference banks (which will be four major banks that are engaged in transactions in the London interbank market, selected by the Calculation Agent) as of 11:00 a.m., London time, on the day that is two LIBOR Business Days prior to the first day of the Calculation Period related to such Payment Date to prime banks in the London interbank market for a period of one month, in amounts approximately equal to the principal amount of the Reference Notes then outstanding. The Calculation Agent will request the principal London office of each of the reference banks to provide a quotation of its rate.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that under the Triparty Agreement the Offsetting Counterparty has acceded to the rights of the Counterparty and no swap transaction has been effected with an additional contingent counterparty or replacement swap counterparty under the circumstances contemplated by Section 2.02 of the Triparty Agreement, then the term “Moody’s Joint Probability” shall refer to the Offsetting Counterparty’s long term senior unsecured credit rating assigned by Moody’s (and, for avoidance of doubt, the obligations of the Counterparty specified in Section 4 of this Confirmation shall constitute obligations of the Offsetting Counterparty).
     “Offsetting Counterparty”: means GMAC LLC or any successor thereto (“GMAC”) under the Fallback Swap Transaction entered into between the Trust and GMAC.
     “Primary Party”: the Counterparty, unless a Substitute Swap Provider has been obtained, in which case it shall be the Substitute Swap Provider or, if applicable, a guarantor thereof.
     “Rating Agency”: each of Fitch, S&P and Moody’s.
     “S&P”: Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services and its successors.
     “Triparty Agreement”: the Triparty Contingent Assignment Agreement dated as of the Effective Date among the Trust, the Offsetting Counterparty and the Counterparty.
